Anyone had any success with blowing on Winn Dri Tec grips?
Why not. If you don't use double sided tape.
I can even take the Winn grip off if it's not installed with double sided tape.
Use a little water instead of solvent to lube the interior of the Winn grip before blowing it on.
Takes a little practice, no bog deal.
Winn are the best to blow. No real worry of explosion due to how they're made.
Okay, great. I just hadn't done any Winn grips yet and didn't know if they would be any different. I seem to remember there are some grips that you "can't" blow on. Wasn't sure if it was Winn or not.
I haven't found ANY that can't be blown on. Now blowing them off after double sided tape and solvent was used for install is a whole different story
LBlack14 I got a syringe to inject solvent, with practice and patients, you can get damn near any grip back off. I don't have a whole lot of patients so I isually end up cutting them off and replacing haha.
D, as do I, but have the same patience as you do, LOL!.
Whenever I am using Winns, sliding or blowing them on, I add a 'cap' of grip tape over the butt of the grip down about 1". It makes them MUCH easier to install.
I just blew on some Dri-Tacs, I use regular 3/4" masking tape long ways on the shaft,(2 pieces) and lube the tape with some baby oil. They go on like Butta...
I had never heard of using grease or oil to lube the grip tape.
Oil or grease do not evaporate and will stay on for a long period of time. Twisted grip after a few golf swing will be expected.
How does it hold up after you take a swing or two ?
The easiest way to install Winn grips is to use Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips....................
Lubing the masking tape means very lightly using a oil soaked paper towel to lube it, never had an issue with it.
I have moved a set of Winn Dri Tecs around several different sets of irons blowing them on and off. I use 2" masking tape. All I do is dip the tip of the grip in a small jar of mineral spirits about a 1/4" deep then pinch the grip mouth and slide it on the shaft and blow it on. Very easy and it is ready to use immediately.
Love Star grips & move them with air like most of you all, can't wear them out.
Just wish red was stocked again

Looks like Value Golf has red and blue Sidewinders. http://www.valuegolf.com/star-sidewinder-red-grip
I really like the feel of Winn grips, until they begin to look like a mouse was eating them, that takes about 2 years to happen.
You're lucky to have Winn last two years. Depending how much you use it and care for it , how you store it. Usually it's lifespan is about one season of use for the average golfers and probably a few months for frequent fliers.
Guess you're right, I only play once a week, clubs stay in a/c house, so 2 yrs.
LOL, 2 years sounds about right in that case.
The killer for the synthetic compound which made up most of the Winn' s structural formula is fluctuation of temperature. Storing the Winn grips in the car trunk during hot Summer months is the worst.
