Do you guys do yourself or do you have them done for you?

How do you determine when it's time to replace them?

Replacing them is so easy...especially if you have no desire to try and save the old ones....

Time to replace grips does not go by a calendar...nor the amount of times you play...there's many variables that copntribute to when it is time...like the type of grip design, the compound material, how dirty they are..etc.

If I may suggest, many times people think they need to replace the grips when all they need is a good cleaning...best stuff to use is Bleche-Wite tire cleaner...spray some on and wipe off.

NOTE: Make sure you spray this away from you and down wind....if any gets in your eyes, you are seriously screwed.

You can buy this stuff at Wal-Mart or about any automotive shop.

Doc, I clean my grips every couple of weeks with a nylon brush and dish soap. I also clean my glove at the same time. It's surprising how long the grips last.

When I do get them changed, I usually go to GolfTown and let them do it. It only costs a few dollars and they do it very quickly...while I shop. LOL

I clean my grips at least twice a month and the only time I change is when they start to lose their tackiness or I get bored with them. Today's grips last much longer than the grips of 10 years ago. It also depends on the grip as some last far longer that others seem to last. I played Golf Pride Tour Velvet for quite a while, but they always got slick and hard after a while. Switched to Lamkin Crossline grips and they last forever. But after all is said and done, I usually regrip at least twice a year. Usually in spring and then just before the rainy season here in Oregon. Grips are like clubs to me, I change sometimes not because I need to but because I want to try another type grip. Usually I will just buy one of two and try them on my driver and PW since I seem to use those two clubs a lot. If I like the new grips I will buy 15 and use them when I get bored with the ones I have on my clubs at the time.

Rory is right, bleche white is fantastic. That being said, i replace them when they just feel wrong. Usually i get more mileage out my 7 iron on up and regrip 8-lw more often. I grip lightly too so i get a couple years out of grips.
