  1. Final results. I believe the problem was a combination of a couple things. The double sided tape was remaing a little gooey from leaving in a hot Arizona garage. And by not using any buildup masking tape the gooey tape was directly against the slick metal shaft allowing it to twist. I added a couple wraps of maksing tape on the shaft and then applied my existing (slighly gooey) double sided tape. The grip seems to be solid now after 2-3 weeks. So having the double sided now gripping against the rougher masking tape, plus a tighter bond from two wraps seems to have done the trick. Thanks for all the suggestions. Now if I could only make some putts.
  2. I use mineral spirits and have used it for many years and hundreds of grips with no problems. I'm suspecting the problem is leaving the grip tape in the hot Arizona garage for a couple of years and it has become compromised. Whether that turns out to be the problem or not I'll keep the tape inside from now on. Weird that you can just pull the grip off (with some force) after having it on for a few weeks.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. The putter is a standard odyssey with .580 butt diameter. So I don't think it is due to a diameter problem. Today I was able to just pull the grip off as I did with the last SS grip. It left a very sticky but gooey tape residue on the shaft. I'm thinking the problem may be the grip tape. It is a standard 2" quality grip tape but I leave it in the hot garage and I'm thinking while it appears very sticky it may not be setting up properly and just remains gooey. I will get some new tape and try it. I'll also take your suggestions and add a wrap or two of masking tape to make extra sure it is a snug fit.
  4. I've had two Super Stroke Pistol GT grips on my OWorks putter. I love the grip but with both grips (one original and one replacement) the grip will twist on the shaft. When the original grip started doing this I thought maybe it was due to the heat here in Arizona. I was able to just pull the grip off without any solvent or anything. I thought a new grip and new tape would help. But the new grip is doing the same thing. I'll look down and see the grip is twisted a few degrees. Then I can just twist it back into alignment. I feel like I could just pull this grip off as well. Has anyone else noticed this with SS grips? I'm thinking there may be something with the Super Stroke material that doesn't give a good bond with the double sided tape. Any thoughts or ideas? As much as I like SS grips this is becoming a deal breaker.
  5. How can they sell dozens and dozens of like new Sim2 drivers, all models, shaft flexes and lofts? Many "head only". I can't imagine this many like new trade-in clubs. Makes me wonder if they could be seconds or rejects from the factory. Anyone have first hand knowledge?
  6. I purchased these a few years ago and never built them. Now I would like to sell them but can't remember who they were from. They are a nice chrome plated forged, .355 taper, made in USA, but I can't remember what the "B" stands for. Anyone remember these?
  7. Great, thanks for the explanation! Now to find some hot melt.
  8. I just purchased a TM M3 440 Tour Issue driver head from quickshipgolf on ebay. It looked fine (shrink wrap, specs on top) and I assembled with a favorite shaft and looked forward to trying it out. The first thing I noticed was the extreme tinny sound from the head. Nothing like the normal TM thwack I was expecting. I hate it. Has anyone else experienced this or anything similar with TM drivers or tour issue TM heads? Made me wonder if it could be fake. The SN looked clean, 81PBB0N0. Thoughts or suggestions appreciated.
  9. I have a new set of Vokey SM non-conforming. I pulled them out the other day and went back to shredding balls. Makes me sick to hit a new ProV one time with a wedge and have it almost unplayable. Does anyone else have this problem with Vokey SM? Not worth the cost for a little extra spin. Besides, they said the non-conforming really only give you an advantage from the rough due to deeper grooves. You should not see much difference on full shots from the fairway. Does anyone know if the new conforming Vokeys shred balls as badely as non-conforming?
  10. Has anyone hit both Altus and VS Proto RIP? I would interested in a comparison and how they play to the stated flex.
  11. I am a hobbyist club junkie and have been using a micro torch for years to remove graphite shafts. I have had pretty good luck but with some of the newer composite heads such as RAZR Hawk I'm afraid even the micro torch may get a little tricky to keep from damamging the head or finish. So I want to give a heat gun a try. How long does it typically take to heat a head with a heat gun before the head will come off? Do you basically just point the heat gun at the hosel and leave it there? (with the micro torch you must move it around) Is the highest temp you can get out of a gun best? Or can it be too high? What temperature typically is used? Where to find a good gun? Thanks
