Is this 50% off the charge for regripping or is it also 50% of the grips too? I've never used their regripping service. Normally the place I go to charges $X per grip which includes putting them on. I didn't know if Dick's charges for the grips AND adds a separate charge for putting them on. Thanks for any extra info.

"Buy your new golf grips at DICK'S Sporting Goods and receive 50% off the re-gripping charges." - From the email that they send you.

Ok. That's what I was thinking. I will have to compare prices and re-gripping charges to see if it would be worth using them. Thanks.

The words dicks and grips should not be used in the same sentence...

Unless it's free when you buy the grips, it's too much. Regripping clubs is easy, and no, you don't need any special equipment (vise, shaft clamp, etc). I regripped a putter, here in my cubicle, in my shirt/tie, in about 2 minutes.

The pgatoursuperstore does $1 per grip if you buy the grip there. Seems fair, especially if you don't have the space, tools, and time to do it yourself. I'd imagine if you play alot, change grips more than once a year, then it would be better to buy grips online and diy.

If you're considering doing this yourself, Golfsmith has everything you need, including videos and how-to's:

Golfsmith Re-gripping Videos [golfsmith.com]

I understand those that don't have time, or just want someone else to do it, but at the same time, this is REALLY easy to do yourself, and you can save enough money to regrip your clubs more often!

The ONLY tools you need are a sharp knife to cut off the old grip (best and easiest is a 'boxcutter' (also called a 'utility knife') with a hook blade so you can pull it toward you) and a rubber vice grip (so you can use a bench vise to hold the club).

Here are some Golfsmith links to these tools:

Hook Blades for your boxcutter [golfsmith.com] - but you can get these at Home Depot, Lowes, or your local hardware store as well.

Rubber Vise Clamp [golfsmith.com]

Golfsmith also sells a kit that has tape, solvent, and this rubber clamp--everything you need--you just pick the grips you want:

Grip Kit Package [golfsmith.com]

So--all you really need is to buy the grip kit, select the grips you want, and (if you don't have a boxcutter) buy the blades for your utility knife.

Watch the videos and you're set...

hmmm with the solvent on the tape and lubing the inside of the grip it should slip on pretty effortlessly... see the demo in the how-to video... Confused

I install and remove grips using an air compressor. No solvent, no cutting. Its fast and easy, plus you can change grips and save the old ones if you want.
