REGRIPPING - SELECTING & INSTALLING NEW GOLF GRIPS
If you think about it, the grip is the only contact we have with the golf club. Depending upon how they like it, the grip’s feel will either promote or lessen tension in a golfer’s swing. That is what makes the grip a very important part of the golf club. The texture, size, and yes, even colour and surface markings, are important in applying the least amount of grip pressure to secure the club while swinging it. Regripping ill-fitted or worn grips is a quick method of improving the golfer's feel.
Lighter grip pressure will promote freedom of movement and a better release of the club during the swing. The result - higher swing speeds, better face control of the club, and ultimately greater shot distance and control. This also applies for putter grips, except that “shot distance” is replaced with “distance control and aim”.
What happens when we have worn grips? Just the opposite- tighter grip pressure to secure the club, less freedom of movement, etc. – you get the picture. That’s why it’s very important to first clean your grips regularly, and secondly, regripping them when they become worn. Tour Professionals change their grips 3 to 4 times per season. Avid golfers should consider changing most types of grips after 60 rounds depending upon the amount of wear that occurs. Be aware that many grip models will harden and become slick just with time. So for the less avid golfer, check that the grips still feel comfortable when starting the new season.
Engineered Golf recognizes that the size of the grip is also uniquely individual for each golfer. The customer selects grips types and sizes the proper way; by “fondling” different examples of different grip sizes, mounted on shaft selections. That’s the only way that a golfer can match the diameters of the grip beneath both hands so that they can hold on to the club with the least amount of grip pressure.
We are very careful about applying generic statements heard in the golf community such as: “All grips that are too small for the golfer cause a pull/hook and all grips too large cause a slice/pushed shot” - that’s not always true. Grips are installed to different sizes strictly so golfers can obtain more comfort in holding on to the club. Shot shape and direction are an outcome of this.
So to summarize, there's no debate that the grips contribute to the feel of the clubs. For the clubs to feel comfortable to the golfer, they need to be fitted so they deliver the most comfort. Regripping by Engineered Golf does that, the golfer will be able to lower the tension level in the hands and arms and be able to repeat their swing more consistently.
Please feel comfortable to ask Engineered Golf to check the condition of your grips. We will provide you with an honest assessment about regripping.
REGRIPPING - INSTALLATION PROCESS
Engineered Golf uses proprietary quick-connecting tools; the simple power of air pressure installs many types of grips without double-sided adhesive tape. Once installed on a steel or graphite shaft the grip is truly stable. The elasticity of the rubber and friction ensures the grip will not loosen or slip.
- Regrip a club in 1/4 of the time it takes for double-sided adhesive tape installations.
- Allows for easy demonstration of grip styles.
- Will not slip or turn in place.
- Clubs can be used immediately. You could get them regripped as you wait and take them directly to the golf course. You have to wait 5 or 6 hours for solvent installed grips to cure.
- Once all tape is removed, grips are as simple to remove and reuse, as they are to install.
