Getting into PURE Grips

Yeah, I really should be willing to pay that, and I will be okay doing so.  Part of me is still in graduate school mentality about spending money (and I've been out of graduate school almost as long as I was in it).   Besides, at $40-$50 + grip costs to pay a store to regrip, I'll recoup the money in 13 months after my second full set re-gripping with this.

 

Oh!  Is there any difference to regripping a graphite shafted club with these?  

Here's the thing....with PURE grips you might find yourself going a lot longer than you would've before changing...like years longer.

Interesting.  I have one on my 6-iron, but I use that club more than any other.  Is it because of how they're installed or how they're made?  I don't know how this one was applied (paid to have it done at a PGA store).

They just use a rubber compound that wears really well.  Its the opposite of "planned obsolescence".

I have done a full set of irons with ONE can of compressed air. Like the ones you steal from work that are made to blow out the keyboard etc.. I put electrical tape around the straw that came with the can to provide a seal in the grip hole and went at it. Was it easy? No, but it wasn't particularly hard.

Interesting.  I'll have to see how I feel a year from now.  I wonder if the wear on my 6-iron is due to its overuse or if there's another factor.  Or maybe I just can't evaluate if a grip really is worn or not -- I think my 5-iron at the moment has a decent grip on it, despite not having changed it since buying the set about six years ago.

Yeah, I have cans of those in my garage (not stolen from work).  I may try to avoid jerry-rigging it though since I'm not really experienced in these kinds of things.

If you damaged your grip or golf club in any way you should not be allowed to walk. It is really simple.

Joey, I noticed you didnt get in on my club building challenges. Thats ok, by your posts, it shows your not very smart. Do you have any idea what is in those cans???  As a 45 yr club builder, I care for your health and safety. Do not do what this fool is doing. A 10" piece of double sided tape is 10 cents--6 cents for solvent.. I dont see any reason to use air.

I still have some clubs with the Pure Pro grips I bought a few years ago and they're still very tacky. I went to the Pure wraps the second time around but didn't care for them as much. I'll go back to the Pure Pros again next year.

I just ordered the set of 13 grips through Amazon.  Will see when they get here what they include.

There are plenty of reasons to use compressed air:

  • Faster
  • Cheaper
  • Easier
  • Cleaner (no liquids to catch, dispose of, splash or squirt anywhere, etc.)

Never mind that you can remove and save grips, swap them out in a matter of seconds, etc.

Have you not looked up Pure Grips installation kit? It's just compressed air and quite simple. I too, as a physician, care for your health. While I don't recommend using the can made for cleaning keyboards, I do like the installation method Pure Grips use. Your carcinogenic solvent is what is actually not necessary, though cheap.

I dunno if you have to pay to pump air in your car tires where you live, but I have pay 2 dollars to top off the tires, a long time ago air used to be free. The air compressor will help with that plus no more hand pumping bicycle tires if you ride. Who knows maybe you want to DIY - pressure washing, sandblasting, spray paint.

Plus you store one less can of flammable liquid in your house/garage.

I bought a bunch of Pure Pro grips at the Golfsmith going out of business sale and bought the installation gun on Amazon.  I purchased an inexpensive pancake air compressor from Harbor Freight and the grips installed great even though it was below the recommended capacity.

I've installed grips with tape and solvent and this obviously and I really prefer the air installation.  Its pretty super easy and changing the next go around will be even easier.

Has anyone tried their putter grips?  I can't find them in a brick and mortar store to check them out.

I have been blowing on and off grips for a few years now.  Before that I used tape and solvent.  Not difficult but time consuming and messy.  Removing the old tape was the worst part.

I recently blew on some Lamkin Grips with reminder.  A little harder to blow on then Pure grips but still good.  I got with my fitter and they say they blow on all kinds of grips all the time.

I've read many good reviews on Pure Grips and finally had my Ping i200's done with them. I really liked the feel when I tried them at the store (PGA Superstore) and I love them now. They are tacky and have a great feel to them. Got them in red too!

My 13 Pure DTX grips came in today.  It was the $70 for 13 from Amazon, did not include the installation gun.  Now I know.  I still haven't gotten a compressor, even though I was at Lowe's today.  Plus I need to dig up my grip removal tool.  Fortunately I have almost two weeks before the club championship.

    • At $25… And $5 for all bets, I'd do it like this… And we'll just assume that we have 22 with @dennyjones just adding to skins if he can play. 22 players is 11 teams… so… Skins $110/(# of skins) [$110 = 22 * $5] Nassau (Teams) $110 * 3 (FBT) but divided up this way: $20 / $20 / $70 $10 / $10 / $60 -- / -- / $50 -- / -- / $40 -- / -- / $30 -- / -- / $20 CTP $22 each. Or $23 if @dennyjones is in. That's just off the top of my head. Feel free to make changes, offer suggestions, etc. I tried to distribute $330 fairly. If you win the front or the back, it seems likely you might win the overall. But even if you sweep, that's $110, which is 1/3 of the pot, which kinda feels fair, too. Maybe?
    • Yes.  We did best points net two- man teams, but only overall IIRC at Beaver Creek. 80% handicap. And top three individual nets got a little something.  Yes, that's it. The three individual competitions - front, back and overall are great for big groups.  The $25 set up sounds like a winner as long as no one has a strong aversion to it. 
    • Day 4: Did my usual slow motion swings. Still working on being lateral with the hips and not letting my hips come towards the ball or get to far behind me.    Also started to work on some putting. Just swinging from coin to coin. New concept as I always tried to accelerate through the putt. Probably why I sucked at lag putting. 
    • You could take it a step farther and… write it down, and then tape it to your shaft beneath your grip. Like… this: Chapter 7, Page 37.
    • “Don’t hit 80 yards. Swing 9 o’clock” - is what my golf coach told me, when I was choosing between my wedges (PW, GP, …). Now I have a printed card where I write the average distance of every wedge that I hit with a 9 o’clock backswing motion. Before: When my distance to the green was around 40 to 120 yards, I would choose the club that would go that distance with either a full swing or a ‘not full swing’. I thought I had a good feeling for the distance and I’d swing according to that distance (sometimes a full swing with a 60 degree lob wedge to reach 100 to 110 yards). After: Now I know how far each wedge goes with a nine o’clock backswing and I systematically dial it up or down by increments of e.g. 5 degrees depending on the distance. Outcome: - My distance control has significantly improved: I am rarely short or long over the green - GIR percentage improved - Consequently, my putting percentage improved. I rarely have three putts thanks to the proximity of my shots near the pin - Now I rarely do a full swing with my wedges; that helps with more consistent shots and has the benefit of less air-time / wind impact For example: Before I would full swing my GW for 120 yard shots and now I go a club up and use my PW with a relaxed 9 o’clock shot to more accurately reach that distance.
