The Golfworks Grip Solvent is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to work with I have installed hundreds of grips and never before had such a hard time. Thankfully I had a can of charcoal lighter fluid to use instead. The product is Not adequately labeled, stating that it contains petroleum naphtha, but you can smell dilimonene, if it were simply naphtha it would work. Mineral spirits or lighter fluid work better, if you can handle it safely, chlorinated solvent dries faster. This product appears to be intended as an enviro friendly alternative but unfortunately it doesn't work very well. Use a better solvent, just handle responsibly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is useless, garbage "solvent" I don't know what is in this, but it's not mineral spirits. Grips stick half way on. Skip this junk altogether. Using regular mineral spirits from a metal can from the hardware store let me finish the grips. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good Found this solvent doesn't lubricate enough to allow smooth installation of grips. Ruined two wrap style Winn grips trying to slid them on. No slip at all. Will not ever purchase this stuff again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing peformance! The worst grip solvent I have ever used. I had to use excessive amounts and the grips still were difficult to install, zero time to adjust after installation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible grip solvent! This solvent was terrible. I ruined 2 grips because the tape and solvent did activate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from will not purchase again have tried to use this product twice and find it extremely horrible when applying grips. I used enough of solvent they should slide on easily, luckily had another product to use. for me a waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor I must agree with those who expressed their dissatisfaction with this product. I threw away three new Winn grips because I was unable to slide them down the shaft. This is a very POOR lubricant!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not nearly as good as the old solvent This was not the first time I've changed my own grips or used Golfworks products but I have to say using this was the worst experience yet. It dried out long before the grip could be slipped on the shaft. The old solvent may have been less eco friendly and took longer to dry but it worked so much better. I've always thought Golfworks products were top shelf but they dropped the ball on this one.

What is the difference between this solvent and the Brampton solvent? Why does GolfWorks sell two brands of grip solvent? Also, surprised at the poor reviews on the Golfworks solvent? Please let me know which is your premier solvent.

Asked by: HankC
The SOM GolfWorks solvent is a petroleum based (Mineral Spirits) solvent that is flammable and the Brampton solvent is a paraffin based solvent that is not flammable. The SOM solvent will evaporate quicker and sometimes it seems to evaporate to quick and that can cause grip installation problems. The Brampton solvent does not evaporate as quickly and seems to be slipperier and grip can seem to go on easier. You do have to let grips sit a little longer with the Brampton solvent before using them but I would always try to leave them set overnight with any solvent I use.

What are the directions for the product. There were none on the bottle or with the purchase. Things are warming up here in Minnesota, so I need to get these new grips on my clubs so I don't waste any time before the snow flies again.

Here is a link from our web site for regripping cubs and it shows how the solvent is used as well. https://www.golfworks.com/images/art/2008Regrip.pdf
