Best tape / grip solvent to buy

Recommended Posts

I used to buy Golfsmith tape (before they closed down) along with Klean Strip Odorless Mineral Spirits from Home Depot. Now I can't find any tape that don't have issues. I tried "Wedge Guys Kit" from Amazon last. Pre -cut tape was only 9-1/2" instead of 10" so I ordered the roll so I could cut myself. But a few grips didn't stay, tape seems not to have enough glue. So I tried their Wedge Guys Grip Solvent, and same thing. Who has a quality tape /solvent combo online?

I’ve used the GolfWorks tape for years and never had any issues. Also use the odorless mineral spirits, I’ve tried the Brampton grip solvent but prefer the mineral spirits.

+1 on GolfWorks. The tape doesn't quite give overlap on most shafts, but overlap isn't a necessity. I've yet to have a grip slip for lack of it.

I use blue painters tape, Brampton grip solvent and a bit of rubber cement and an air compressor and air grip installation tool.  It works great, especially for my BestGrips Microperf grips.  I don't need to use a round grip sleeve to control the expansion of rubber grips since these are leather stitched grips and don't over expand.

I've used Golfworks tape and it's fine.  More recently I order Suretape from Amazon and it's also fine.  https://www.amazon.com/Shurtape-Application-Installation-Wrinkling-Mounting/dp/B07BQJ3JBB/

 

For solvent I prefer Bramptons HF-100 in a pump bottle.  No stink and easy application.  A few squirt shots inside the grip and then mist a few more shots over the tape on the shaft.  No spillage like when using mineral spirits (which I've also used.)

I use the tape and solvent from Golf Galaxy (same as in Golfworks catalog).  Use the solvent with green trim on bottle part #SOMQT.  I used to use the odorless mineral spirits with good results but recently it became hit or miss - possibly EPA forced a change in formula.  After switching to the Golfworks solvent the grip would slide on MUCH easier.
