If your golf clubs are your pride and joy then you may be disappointed to notice that the grip is wearing away. This is to be expected, however, as continuous use, heat, and dirt can all contribute to the thinning of the grip. As an ardent fan of the sport, you know the importance of a good grip. As the grip is the only part of the club that you can actually grasp, it contributes to the control you have over your swing.
With a worn grip you may find yourself gripping the club harder, losing that adequate amount of power and control. You may have not realized this but you can actually re-grip your golf clubs with your air compressor. Here is how you can do this.
For this particular do-it-yourself activity, you are going to need an air compressor, a new set of grips, one sided masking tape, a utility knife, and an air compressor grip tool. To make this job a lot easier, you should also probably equip yourself with some solvent as well as a vice that has a rubber shaft holder. Once you have compiled all of these items, you can begin.
The first thing that you are going to have to do is to remove the old grip from the clubs. You will need the utility knife to get this done. Removing the old grips are going to need a decent amount of force. This is a rather dangerous part of the procedure so you should be very careful. Always use the knife with the blade pointing away from your person. This way you will be less likely to cut yourself. Once you are done, you will be left with the sticky grip tape. You should cut away all of this tape as well.
Take the one sided masking tape and use it to build up a grip. You should keep wrapping until you have reach a level where your grip can easily fit. Take care to block the hole on the top of the shaft with a great deal of tape. To make the next step a little easier, you should consider placing the end of the shaft in some solvent. You should repeat this step with the end of the grip as well.
The output regulator for this activity should be set to 50 psi. You should now attach your grip tool to your air compressor. Slip the tip of the grip onto the shaft and then slowly begin to push it forward. As you are doing this, turn on the air compressor. It is important to begin pushing the grip forward before turning the air compressor on. This way, the compressor will not backfire into you.
The great thing about using this method is that you can use your clubs instantaneously. All other procedures would have taken longer and required you to wait for the grips to dry. You are all done!
