I know that someone will probably jump on me for saying this, but i have heard A LOT of horror stories come out of the golf town re-grip sale.

Several people have told me about golf town losing one club or their whole set during this event. A friend of mine went to pick up his set and the people at golf town had just given it away to someone else that had left a similar set to be regripped. It seems as though the staff get too busy with this event and some of them become flustered by the volume of clubs at the back counter.

Fortunately for my friend, in this instance, the person who had received his clubs was still in the store and he was able to get his sticks back, but it has always made me a bit leary of taking advantage of this deal....

As a Leader Board member you can take advantage of this early. The general public cannot get the 2 for 1 deal until Feb 1. They also have 20% off shafts with freee install for LB members. I am getting mine re shafted so this will save me a few bucks. I have never had any problems with GT here in Hamilton. They have always been top notch.

I'm with Banana Slice on this one. Golftown is horrible for re-grips. I had them done twice and each time they have done them wrong. The first time they installed ribbed grips when I asked for them to be round as well as they didn't take of the original layer of tape so I had an extra wrap. The second time, I specifically made sure to tell them about taking off the original wraps and putting just the one standard wrap and not only did they not do that but they just put another layer or tape on making it the wraps total. REALLY brutal. I would just go to Golfsmith Canada and pick up grops there. Prices are MUCH more decent than golftown if your going to do your own grips.

I just came back from Golf Town and I am getting 15 clubs regripped with Golf Pride Multi-Compound Grips. It will be my first time trying hem out, I usually get Golf Pride Tour Velvets.

I have had them regrip clubs before, without any problems.

I play 80+ rounds a year and practice a whole lot, so I get them regripped every year.

They will be ready on Wednesday.

I just picked up my clubs from the 2 for 1 sale. I got the Golf Pride Decade Multi-compound which was showing a "sale" price of $7.98. (usual price of $12 I think). I should have asked if the 2 for 1 was off of the regular price but when I went to pay - they charged me $7.98 per club. I asked about the 2 for 1 and they said the grips are marked down already and those ones aren't part of the 2 for 1. Although the ad says 2 for 1 on all Golf Pride grips.

I would say a good chunk of the clubs sitting there are Decade Multi-compound grips. I bet there are a bunch of ticked people after that. I know they are still on sale but the ad says "2 for 1 on ALL Golf pride grips." Off of the regualr price that's still a $2 difference.

If those grips aren't part of the 2 for 1 - it should mention that in the ad!

Technically it says on all regular priced golf pride and lamkin grips. Regardless that is too bad, I was going to pick up a dozen or so of those plus something else.

Still haven't heard what kind of full cord grips they have... anyone???

That's what I paid as well for those grips. I was happy with the price when compared to the regular price. I hope that I am happy with the grips. I get mine back on Wednesday.

My impression was that they had the full selection of grips from the popular grip manufacturers. Check out the Golf Pride http://www.golfpride.com/ and Winn http://www.winngrips.com/ websites and likely the one that you chose from there, they have.

I just received my order from Golfsmith. I ordered a grip "kit" which includes everything that you need to change your own grips (including a how to DVD). It was about 2/3 of the cost at Golftown and I am jacked about working on my own clubs (have you ever seen it done? You could train train a chimp to change grips)!

What they do is mark the price down 50% so none of them are "officially" full price (although some are marked down less then 50%). that way if you get an odd number of clubs they all work out to 50% off. Still it would have been nice to be told that they weren't part of the 2 for 1 price as I mention mention it when I left my clubs in. Still I can't complain too much because they were ready in 24 hours, wasn't full price and seem to be a good job.

$7.98 is not too bad a price for the GP Multi-compound as Golfsmith sells them for $7.55 plus shipping and then there's grip tape and solution. Basically you got the service for free and 24hr turn around ain't bad at all.

The longer you wait in the sale the longer it will take. I took mine in on Saturday and they will be ready on Wednesday.

You have to be a Leaderboard member to take advantage of the sale right now.

They also sometimes run out of certain types of grips. It looks like there is a run on the Decade Multi Compound grip, so I can see them running out of that type of grip.

Brought them in today. 3-PW Getting DG s300 with Golf Pride Tour velvets. I am saving about $107.00. Great time to re shaft and re grip. Should be a week to get back though :( they are pretty backed up

I took mine in Saturday afternoon (around 3pm) to the GT on Vega Blvd., got 9 GP Tour Wrap Full Cord grips at the 2 for 1 price, and picked them up yesterday at 5. My wife got 13 clubs done as well. All look to be put on properly aligned, feel secure with no bubbles etc. Have never had a problem with GT and club work.

I got the regripped clubs back from Golf Town a day early today. They did a very good job and boy do I like the Decade Multi-Compund grips.

I took a couple dozen swings hitting a plastic ball into the net in my house and they felt terrific. Time will tell how good they are, but so far, so good.

for those of you who had their grips done and say they did a good job...I am not doubting you...BUT...alot of people can't really tell if there is only one extra wrap of tape, yet the difference in shot shape can be pretty big...I usually hit a decent size draw...and when I had the one extra layer of tape on my grips I could only hit it straight...a draw was nowhere in sight...so...if you find, when you start playing, that your shots seem to be a little off or that the new grips your trying feel kinda weird...dont be so fast to attribute the difference to the new grip....I wouldn't be surprised if you take them off and find there is one extra wrap above what you asked/were fitted for.

It happened to me...I hated the multi-compound....thought it was just the grip...took em off and noticed that instead of taking off the old tape they just put an extra wrap on top...regripped them with multi-compound again and the correct amount of wraps and viola...best grips I've ever played.

Anyways...I just thought i'd let everyone know.

Had mine regripped at the store in Kitchener on Saturday. I originally had 10 clubs regripped and they were done in about 40 minutes. But while they were getting gripped I had bought a new 60* LW and had it regripped also.

From what I read on here, I feel bad for you Toronto guys. It sounds like your Golf Town's are horrible compared to the one here. I always get great service and they're never overly busy. I wasn't expecting to have 11 clubs regripped in less then an hour.

Plus, last Tuesday, I was one of the few people in the store and started chatting with an employee...he mentioned they had an FT-i demo in the back. He asked if I wanted to hit it...of course I did. Yesterday, I was there again and they let me hit the Sumo demo they had.

My best friend and I took our clubs to the Heartland location for a re-grip....
When we took our full sets the pro shop told us not to leave our headcovers. Well the end result is my driver and 3 wood, now have marks from the irons hitting them... my best friend drppoed off a never used outside (indoor range only{got it new in the winter}) Nike SasQuatch 460 (http://www.golftown.com/gtcommerce/stores/1/Nike-SasQuatch-460-Tour-Driver-with-Diamana-83-P2050C20.aspx)and he got it back with a dent. They replaced his stuff, but the staff told me that they are only surface marks on my clubs and that they used some turtle wax to remove the marks... turtle wax.... really turtle wax... golftown still put marks on my clubs... So when I got home I cleaned my clubs with some soap and water and the wax came right off, and the marks are still on them. Why is it when you buy 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 hundred dollar drivers from golftown they give you headcovers, but when you leave your clubs to get work done, they put the all together in a garbage bag. Do they not think the heads will get damaged when you put them in the bags together. Some of the bulls**t I was told that it is hard to keep all the clubs during the re-grip, somethings may happen, beacuse they have so many clubs right now (hey golftown that is your problem not my problem). With the prices they charge for stuff you would think they would appreciate the value of the clubs and take care of it. People just do not care about other peoples property!

Upset Club Hoe!

golferboy
Feb 9, 2007, 11:39 AM
I think it depends on who you get when you drop your clubs off. I had my three wood and putter regripped a week ago and left them with the covers. If the staff would have asked me to take the covers off I would have refused...

Benny
Feb 9, 2007, 12:54 PM
That would be taking your car to a garage and the mechanic says to take your fancy rims and tires off so something doesnt happen to them. What a croc. I agree they should be more caring and if they think they have or could have a problem they should look into it. If that happened to me I would snap on the spot cause I am VERY picky about the condition of my clubs.

Golfbum
Feb 9, 2007, 01:04 PM
It could be the fact that who ever is doing the re gripping might be too damn lazy to pull of the headcover before re gripping the driver or fairway woods. You need the headcover off to line up the grip. So that would mean taking it off. WOW an extra 5 seconds of time consumed and no scratches on the driver.
If it was me (It won't ever be) I would go to the store, demand to talk to the manager and show him exactly what happened to your club. If he really does not seem interested then walk away, and casually say "My brother in law, who is a lawyer will be in touch, since you seem to think this is not an issue." This tatic works well :D

tickyboy
Feb 9, 2007, 05:16 PM
When I would regrip clubs I'd just put the original grip in the vice so it lines up straight, then install one the same way. That or line it up with the shaft graphics. Not rocket science by any stretch.

You guys must all have tiny hands - I get two extra wraps (total of three) so they actually fit my hands.

You know what they say about small hands ... :D

Oh - and I took my head covers with me because I didnt want them to get lost. I dont really mind if my clubs knock together, since I go out and HIT GOLF BALLS WITH THE DAMN THINGS. However, there was no damage to the clubs regardless, so it was a moot point.
