  • Where does everyone get their clubmaking supplies?

    Looking to build a rough set up for changing grips and I'm wondering where the DIYers go for supplies and grips. Checked out Golfworks and the grips are the same price as golftown, plus there is no free shipping. Thanks.

    Grips, just wait for sales and close outs as I'm not particular. For basic set up, just a vice and the rubber shaft holder with the metal sides works fine.

        Torch is also handy for removing tape vs. a scraper. I just use varsol rather than solvent, cheap and easier to pick up. Could use soapy water if you're fast enough and don't want to spend money.

            You won't beat the Golftown deal in the winter. YOU MAY FIND SOME GOOD DEALS FOR GRIPS ON EBAY BUT YOU RISK FAKES OR OLD .. (Oops excuse the caps) hardened grips. I have had good success on Ebay for Golfpride corded, but it's more you want to DIY your own grips than any value proposition.

                Do you use a torch on graphite?

                  Found a decent deal on some SuperStrokes at Golfworks and picked up some basic tools. Already have a bench and vise so not much more to go to get set up. It will probably be a while until I realize any real cost savings, but looking forward to just doing it myself and not feeling gouged at $3x15 every time at golftown.

                    Re: golfworks. Just wait till a holiday, as they usually offer a free shipping promo. They have all the tools and supplies you'll need. As for grips, as stated, wait for the 40% off Golftown deal in the winter.

                      you can, but an electric heat gun is the best method. In either method you're passing the heat from 3'' height over the tape for 10 seconds.
                      In a pinch a hair drier held at 1" height , on the high heat setting, will also work.
                      I'd refrain from using varsol and a tape scraper because it softens the glue on the tape and makes it messy to remove on graphite and. you then have to wipe the varsol off the shaft very thoroughly or the new layer of tape will lift.

                        Amazon for tape or tape strips. Also there for Karma grips. Kijiji for more quality grips, mostly new. Paint thinner from Crappy Tire. Golf grip remover bought from Golftown. Extensions from Ebay. Or use old clubs and cut with a pipe cutter. That's about it.

                          GT doesn't gouge on the grip installation considering the cost of tape,solvent and most important the requisite labour time.
                          If they want to be smart they should,forego their annual grip sale and include the FREE installation with the regular grip price.

                          gouging, IMHO, is buying your coffee at Starbucks.

                            $3 is actually extremely reasonable when you think about the time and effort involved.

                            Golftown actually increased their "customer provided grips" to $5 recently.
