Karma Golf Regripping and Care Tips

Regrip with Karma

 

Why Re-Grip?

Nothing is worse than the feel of a worn or slick grip.  Yet a high percentage of golfers simply ignore the grip as being a factor in the performance of the club. If a grip is worn, the golfer’s hands will tend to slip as the club is being swung, which can cost the player valuable strokes.  Golf grips are made of materials that age and wear over time.  They naturally degrade from exposure to heat and sunlight as well as the dirt and oils from your hands.  While proper cleaning can prolong the life of a grip, there is only so long the grip can last.

Avid golfers will routinely re-grip their clubs at the beginning of each year to ensure them maximizing their potential, while others will elect to re-grip every 2 or 3 years based on their frequency of play. 

Cleaning Karma Grips

 

GRIP CARE: Cleaning your grips

The one practice you may want to start is to regularly clean your Karma grips to provide a more slip-resistant surface and extend their life.  Under normal play, the soil and perspiration from your hands will either permeate the grip or lay on the outer surface to create a slick exterior.  For rubber grips, the best way to clean them is with warm soapy water.  Mix common liquid dishwashing soap in a bucket or in a sink.  Dip a soft bristled brush into the water and started scrubbing the outer surface.  Next, rinse with clean water to remove any soapy residue then allow the grip air dry.

Cleaning Karma synthetic over-wrap grips is accomplished slightly different.  Don’t use a brush and soapy water as you can scratch the outer surface and destroy the tackiness and slip-resistance of the grip.  Instead, take a soft clean towel moistened with water or rubbing alcohol and simply wipe the exterior surface.

DO NOT immerse any grip in a bucket of water to clean them. This will saturate the underlying layer of tape and potentially cause the grip to slip on the shaft and may even ruin the grip.  In addition, it may cause a steel shaft to rust from within.
