How To Apply Grip Tape

If you're new to re-gripping, first read through the "How To Re-Grip Your Clubs" guide to understand all aspects of re-gripping. Then come back to dive into the details of using grip tape here.

 

Here are 3 important topics to review before applying grip tape.

 

#1 - HOW MUCH GRIP TAPE DO I NEED?
To install a grip, you need at least 1 wrap of grip tape to match the stated size of the grip. This means there is one layer of tape that goes around (and does not overlap) the grip, regardless of the size of the grip. What happens if you apply more than 1 wrap, you ask? Well, head on over to #2:

#2 - HOW DO I USE GRIP TAPE TO INCREASE MY GRIP SIZE?
Our Premium Double-Sided Grip Tape has a thickness of 0.0075 inches. Using one layer of tape around the shaft already increases your diameter by 0.0075 x 2, or 0.015 inches. Based on this calculation, here are the number of wraps to use when you want to increase the size of your grip, starting with a bare grip: 

A) To Increase your grip size from Standard to Midsize:
Apply 5 WRAPS of grip tape (which will add 1/16" to the diameter)

B) To increase your grip size from Midsize to Oversize/Jumbo:
Apply 5 WRAPS of grip tape (which will add 1/16" to the diameter)

C) To increase your grip size from Undersize to Standard:
Apply 3 WRAPS of grip tape (which will add 1/32" to the diameter)
IMPORTANT NOTE: You only need to apply solvent to the last layer of tape, before installing the grip. Solvent is needed to both lubricate the grip as well as activate it so that they when dry, the tape adheres to the inside of the grip. We recommend using a generous amount of solvent to avoid the grip getting stuck halfway.

 

 

#3 - VIDEO INSTRUCTIONS
It's extremely helpful to watch one of the video instructions. Here you'll see a professional club-fitter applying grip tape and subsequently using solvent to activate it. Watch the instruction video for your brand of grips before you begin. If there is no specific video for your brand of grips below, then use this General Instruction Video as your guide.
