Can't get a new grip on a Burner Bubble shaft.

I'm re-gripping some clubs for my dad, and he's got this TM Rescue club that has a burner bubble shaft. I'm putting some of the Lamkin Crossline grips on the rest of his clubs, but this shaft has such a large diameter at the grip end, I can't get a grip to slide over it. Anyone have a suggestion? I've tried the compressor, and used more solvent than I care to think about. Thanks.

I haven't done one of those in awhile but I used to have a tool that looked like a funnel that had been quartered and it would slide the grip onto the shaft.

Mine is the lazyman's suggestion, but I'd drop it off at the proshop on the way to the course and pick it up after the round...

Re: Can't get a new grip on a Burner Bubble shaft.

I had the same problem last year.

This solved it. And I use it on all of my graph. shafts now.

The grip installer works, or you could purchase special grips made for those old bubble shafts. I remember the butt being around 0.83" or so.

Those grips are junk though. All slippery and thin and stuff.

Any standard size grip you put on, .580 or .600 will stretch and feel huge on a bubble shaft. The reason the bubble grips are so thin is because the butt end of the shaft is so big, they are the only ones that will feel like a standard size grip on a bubble shaft.

There is a crossline grip that fits. Not sure if it's made for it or not.

Re: Can't get a new grip on a Burner Bubble shaft.

I would warm the grip up. Throw it in the oven for a couple of minutes at 200 degrees. It has always helped me get the tough grips on.

Re: Can't get a new grip on a Burner Bubble shaft.

I ended up just taking it to the new Golf Etc. store by my work. They charged me $3.00 for a grip and install, and they did it fast. Those bubble shafts stink for regripping. Hopefully I won't have to do one of those again soon, or I'll have to get the funnel thingey.
