Changing Your Grips-How Often Should You Do It?

How Often Should I Change My Golf Grips?
I have already said it is important to replace or change your GRIPS routinely. You want to replace or get different golf grips often, especially if you play often. How often is often? If you play 2 or 3 times a week, then you should replace them every 6 months or so. If you play more, then every 2 or 3 months may be needed to maintain your GRIPS sensation within your hands. If you play only on weekends, then you may only need to replace once a year.

You can have your grips replaced by a clubfitter, or some golf shops offer golf grip installation services. The cost of a new set of grips vary from store to store, and from manufacture to manufacture. You must pay the cost of each grip, and then you must pay for the installation of grip. The easiest way to determine the cost, is to call some local places and ask around. Many are willing to take care of them for you, because this is an easy way for them to make money. I know, because I used to do it. In fact, for a brief period I had a business of doing nothing but changing golf GRIPS. My company used to be called, Get-a-Grip. But anyway, that was a different time, and for those wanting to start a business this is much easier than you might believe! So consider replacing GRIPS! I went into the business of repairing furniture, and that's what I have done over the past 20 years, by the way.

Is It Easy To Change Golf Grips?
But one can ask: "Can I change my own GRIPS? Sure! Is it hard to do? Not really. And 'expensive? Not as expensive as to leaving it to someone else do it for you. You will need to pay for your new grips, purchase some grip tape, and buy some grip solvent to help you slip the grips on easier. But the cost will ultimately be its advantage. An easy way to get started is to get a Professional Regripping Tape & Solvent Kit. It is not difficult to do, it's inexpensive, and also allows you to experiment with different types of grip sizes and thicknesses, so that you can get your golf grips just the way you like them. So, change your golf grips regularly, but most of all, have fun!
