Found it at Wal-Mart a few moments ago.  I figured I'd double-check before I open it and use it since it doesn't say "glue" on it, but was right with the other glues (no other ones said Silicone).

I dunno. I've used this:

Okay, I am not sure I got the right thing... it's this:

That might work, but I'd suggest you get something that says "adhesive".  The product you bought is more of a sealant for cracks, etc.  It will probably work fine, but I've had great luck with silicone adhesive caulk/sealant.

Thanks, @iacas and @Hardspoon.  I'll return what I have and look for the other stuff this weekend.  If I play tomorrow for some reason, I'll tag a different club and change it upon review.

So I'm going to re-grip soon and I figure I should include the 6-iron with it, even though that grip is newer than the other ones in my bag that are getting re-gripped (I also use that club a lot more).

Is there an easy way to remove the GG tag from the club, seeing as how it's been glued in?

Did you use silicone or superglue? Both are kind of the same procedure anyway, just run a blade under the tag loosen the adhesive and then twist it off like normal. Clean off the tag of excess adhesive and you're good to go.

I used the gorilla glue I think.

Which kind? Gorilla makes a lot of adhesives, some of which I would not have recommended for this application.

Oye I lost my 5 iron tag and had them send me a new one, and that one was gone yesterday. I barely had it 2 weeks. I use winn grips however. I hope it is in the bottom of my bag.

They make a silicone now. I think it dispenses itself.

If it's Gorilla Silicone, which is what I use, it's very easy to get the tag off, but it's sticky enough to hold it for thin hits that would have otherwise vibrated it out.

The one Erik linked above is the one I think I got.

I realize this thread is a bit old, mods feel free to delete or move if warranted.

Recently started regripping my clubs with Pure grips and noticed my tags (Shot Scope) were falling out pretty frequently when practicing in my yard.

Thistothat dot com suggests Barge for bonding plastic to rubber. I happen to have some Barge in my adhesives bin, and also a tube of E6000 industrial adhesive. Plan to give each of these a try to see if it works. If the tags keep falling out, I may abandon the tags all together as I really dislike the Shot Scope watch anyways.

The Gorilla Silicone that Erik referenced above works great.   It holds them firm and is still easy to take the tags off if needed.   I'd try it first.

I use Golf Pad GPS Tags. Concerned that they MIGHT come off, I looked and looked for a product that says it is for plastic and rubber. Then a user recommended using electrical tape around the edges of the tags and top of grip. Appears to work and hardly noticeable. BTW...The only PURE grip I use is on my putter. Love it. The hole in the butt end seems a little larger than my other grips, but not sure. Best, -Marv

The only silicone product I saw on the Gorilla website is a sealant, which works okay as an adhesive but some plastics don't bond well with silicone, and I'm not sure what the Shot Scope tags are made out of. I have plenty of partial tubes of silicone sealant laying around, but not Gorilla brand, so I tried it on one tag.

I bonded one tag with silicone sealant, one with Barge and one with E6000. My suspicion is that the E6000 will result in the most permanent bond, but might require some destruction of the tag/grip to remove. The silicone sealant and barge bonded tags will probably be easier to remove. 

After they're all fully cured, I'll hit some balls and see how well the tags stay put. I've been hitting the ball off the toe lately, so I'll be challenging the bond strength under plenty of vibratory stress 😂

I've had maybe one tag ever fall out using Gorilla glue silicone.

This stuff:

I say maybe because it might be 0. It's not ≥2.

If the silicone product can withstand my poor strikes, this will probably be my first choice due to ease of removal. If they start popping out, I'll go with something more permanent and deal with removal when the time comes.

I'm not married to my Shot Scope system because I really dislike the ginormous watch, but I've got better golf related things to spend money on this winter (more lessons).

I got it to review but have thus far declined. I thought the watch could just be nearby, and would show info, but you have to WEAR it to track the shots. That's basically a non-starter for me.

I did my bag half/half using RTV silicone sealant or Barge cement to fix the tags to the grips. Everything has held perfectly except the 7-iron tag fixed with silicone eventually loosened a bit, but not to the point where the tag was going to fall out. This is the club I practice with most frequently, so I figure the extra vibration from thin/toe shots and hitting off a mat slowly loosened the silicone, or possibly the grip/tag wasn't cleaned off well enough before bonding. I re-fixed this one with Barge and it has held fine so far.

After my experiment, I would go with silicone in the future per the previous recommendations, as it is easier to work with, and holds fine for typical use, and just periodically check the tags.
