The GolfWorks V-Groove Grip Remover
A great tool for removing grips. The v-shape provides a channel to funnel solvent to where you need it most, loosening the tape, and it also strengthens the tool to give you some leverage to work the grip loose. If you are removing the grip to butt trim or extend the shaft, you can re-use the grip after using this tool.
Simply fold back the lip on the grip and slide the tool underneath. Pour a bit of solvent in the groove as you work up and around the grip. A little bit of patience will go along way as you let the solvent do its work.
Note: The V-Groove Grip Remover may not work well with cord grips or Winn grips, grips that have underlistings or grips that do not stretch a bit.

Worked Great For Me
Reviewed By: JefS
I used this tool for the first time today. Just a small amount of grip solvent fed down into the grip allowed this tool to gradually slide down toward the butt of the grip. Regripping my irons with the same OEM grips will save me $40+.

Save your grips

Iíve been a fan of using my air compressor to remove golf grips for the past few years. The only problem with this method is that you can only remove stock rubber grips. This is of course assuming that you would like to reuse the grips you removed sometime in the future. Winn and other cord grips simply blows out and it just defeats the purpose of using a compressor. I might as well have used a knife in the first place.
The V-Groove Grip Remover however is a completely different animal. If you do it right, you can pretty much save any grip so you can use it in the future. This comes in handy when youíre experimenting with different size grips or just purchased a new driver and want to match the grip to your other clubs. If you decide you donít like that driver and want to put it on EBay, you can then reinstall the original grip that you did not destroy when you removed it.
The V-Groove thus far has been perfect. I have even been able to remove a 17 inch belly putter grip using this tool. The trick is to hold the head of the club in the palm of one hand, with the butt of the grip resting firmly on the floor. Stick the tip of the V-Groove about a half inch into the grip and then pour a little solution into the opening. As it flows down between the grip and tape, you can start rotating the clubhead while holding the tool steady with your other hand. Every inch or so, just add a little more fluid into the opening between the grip and the shaft. Keep turning the clubhead and adding fluid until you eventually get all the way to the end of the tool or end of the grip. Once itís all the way down, I would place my rubber clamp around the shaft and place it in a vice (donít over tighten). Once in the vice, you can hold on to your grip and twist it off. Using a dry towel or leather glove helps you to get a firm grip.
Using the process, Iíve been able to get every single grip off, every single time Iíve tried. Every

After removing a couple of grips, I started to insert the tool first on one side of the shaft, then the other side, each time with a couple of squirts of solvent. Grips came off in minutes by twisting and pulling. Saved a full set of grips. This tool pays for itself each time.Read More Reviews
