PostSubject: where to buy new grips   Thu Sep 13, 2012 2:18 pm

Hi Smile
Anybody having a good advice on where to buy new grips?
I want it for all of my irons and clubs as well as putter...
I used to have 1 extra layer of tape and midsize (60) grips on my old set, and I haven't really feel 100% comfortable since buying new irons with standard grips...

Also, how much is it supposed to cost??
I went to Far East yesterday and a shop there offered it for 18SGD/grip, including putting it on.
No discount for more... think it is very expensive!!?

Transview at RCC is doing it at $10/grip. Golf pride duo color. The last time I did it at far east @$15. Bishan is charging @$13.

depending on the models and brands of grips u prefer.. some putter grips esp the fat ones can be very expensive like $40-50 each, fitters shd also hv them like BFG, Bobs Golf and Sigma.. also if u go to a golf range there shd be a shop there which is able to change for you

You guys live in lala-land.

And I can give strokes but only if No. 1 play blindfolded and No. 5 play with one hand tied behind his back.

Thanks for all the advices Smile
It turns out that I also need to have the irons extended by 1 inch for better fit...
BFC asks for (outrageous) 30 SGD/iron to do so and 21 SGD just to change the grip (as mentioned I want midsize, but also with treading for better gripping)...
ANYBODY know a better place (read cheaper)??
Especially the extension price took me by surprise...
It is >10 SGD more expensive compared to Denmark (where I originates from)!!!

You more pay more but you get quality service.

That said, this is a free market. There are various places where you go to change your grips. Golf House in Suntec does it. Or, try any of the other fitters (Wizgolf, Torque, Sigma etc.) They all do so. Prices vary.

Jesper, which model of grips are you talking abt? My advice, go to a good fitter because I encounter before some fitter they don't used grip tape, instead they used only elephant glue Crying or Very sad

dude, i'm sorry to tell you that singapore's prices are far and away above those is europe or US. so honestly, for quality workmanship, you'll be looking to pay between $30 to $40 for extension and about $20 for grips locally. personally, i wouldn't trust anyone who tells me that the will change my grip for $10
