Hi, can someone adv if i can still keep my original grips when i go to the fitters to change them off? Or they have to slice them off? And which fitter would allow me to do that? Thx.

Yes bro you can. From what I know is that not all grips can be saved especially if the grips are too old. I've had my original grips saved at vinc golf and bob's golf before but you have to let them know in advance that u wish to keep the original grip though. Hope this helps Smile

yes, you can. provided the grips aren't in poor condition. i know the fitter at MBGC does a good job. he managed to save my TM grip even tho they are famous for being poor quality, mass produced grips. (:

The best person to get advice fm re yr fitter as he ll tell you whether the grip condition b4 layg hands to salvage it! Wink
Bt wat i knw s tat some fitter ll charge you fr a small amt fr this job...say ie: S$5.00 each only. Shocked

The IOmic stops me from trimming my shafts... Adds an extra high cost -.-

Yes, the old grips can be saved. I have just removed my Orange colour Pure DTX grips, only used twice in the range, just couldn't really gel with the grips and changed to GP multicompound. The fitter removed nicely the previous grip.
Anyone interested in Pure DTX grips, I am letting go mine. PM me if interested.

I used to save my grips.  most can be saved though some like iomic cannot.  glue does not stick or deformed shape or something.   grip prices and change grip price has come down abit and really no need to save them these days.
