    I think you can buy the packages that come with the grips, tape and extras. Other than that, your best bet would be to go to Golfworks and buy your supplies there. Sure, you might have more than you need now, but you'll then be stocked for future projects.

    Tape from Golfworks is cheap and well worth it. I'm sure any grip tape GT sells you would be from Golfworks anyway. You can also try Golfsmith Canada and ebay.

    Golftown does NOT sell grip tape. I asked when I bought my grips there. Then proceeded to Golfworks, if I am not mistaken they will sell you pre-cut strips as many as you need.(I ended up buying a roll for the above mentioned future projects)

    I'm sure they sell strips at GW. You don't need to buy a roll.

    More or less.

    In a pinch I have used non-grip tape double sided tape and the adhesive is different and resulted in a very gooey mess.

    At one point GW a couple years back GW ran out of regular grip tape. They substituted with carpet tape(with the brown backing)available from Cantech in Montréal: http://www.cttgroup.com/cantech/cm1.asp?SMID=7

    It gets the job done but like you said very gooey.

    when you install them. All you need to do is clean up the stuff that comes out at the bottom of the grip with solvent.

    And they are not fun to take off! Many times I have cursed a previous clubmaker for using double-sided carpet tape instead of grip tape

    Silly, a roll of what would essentially amount to a lifetime supply of griptape for you is about 7-8 bucks at GolfTown. Just grab some and forget about the carpet tape

    I wish I had photos of all the clubs I have purchased over time that had poorly applied grips put on by someone with a compressor. I know some people swear by them however I myself prefer using grip tape.

    I had one bad experience installing them when I first started using a compressor. They were blown off(with solvent and air) and reapplied with a compressor. I guess they stretched.No f and good. Brand new ones that have not been stretched will not twist. To be on the safe side I use .580 grips. Now whenever I use a compressor I try my darnest to twist them off. If they don't budge they stay. If they do budge grip tape goes on. You learn from your mistakes.

    Yup, I haven't run into a problem. I always remove the old grip and the old tape, apply one layer of masking tape and on she goes. Works like a charm and you can save old grips and try different ones quite easily.

    I'm sure both you guys both do a terrific job with the compressors. For anyone who installs a lot of grips it is certainly a worthwhile purchase.
    For someone just doing their own grips however, I think it is worth it to start off and learn to do it nice and carefully with grip tape and solvent. The extra time is takes is not that big a deal when you're only doing one or two sets.

    I agree with Reid that you should get a feel for it with the grip tape and solvent. My father in law and I share the compressor and we only do it once a year but we like to play with different grips and save the old ones. Not really worth the investment if you are going to them once a year and not save any grips.
