    You mentioned a counter balanced grip. I would have been curious to know what the adjustable mechanism weighed or if you could get it off to weigh it. And what was the weight difference between the Ping SS grip you took off versus the new one you put on? Far as you putting with it could you feel any difference in balance? Really I am just curious on the engineering side of things. Another question for you and not busting your chops in any way. Why do you not use air to put on grips? I think the air method would have worked on that grip too. BTW the comment will show up under my wife’s name because she has a Facebook account and I do not but this is Big Stu off of WRX asking

    Excellent, Knuds!!! When I first saw the release of the Sigma 2s, I wondered if the grip could ever be changed at all.

    Nice video Knudson. I was just thinking about the regripping process of the exact putter! Is it just me or about half the comments on pretty much every single video either people complaining or acting like the safety police???
    Nothing wrong with the way he cut off the grip…im sure hes done it a thousand times! He still has 10 fingers as far as i can tell! As far as it being square??? Who cares? It was a demo video. To cut a grip of by cutting away from your body you pretty much have to be standing on your head!

      I guess it just matters on your point of view on this video – is it supposed to be educational or just entertainment? If the point of the video is to show how to change a grip and he does it unsafely and improperly then why is it here? If the purpose is for us to giggle at then good job!

    What was the outside diameter of the adjustable sleeve? was it 0.580 or 0.600 inches? Or a custom size?

    I have an adjustable TaylorMade Ghost putter (Actually an adjustable TM Fitting Tool putter, and the sleeve diameter is 0.680, for which I cannot find a replacement putter grip. Any sources for a replacement grip?

    “Perfectly vertical” without the aid of any type of level – that’s new, and once again you managed to make an easy process dangerous. It does not matter what you are working on or what you are doing, all materials must be secured properly before adjusting. The concept of basic shop safety escapes you. Please stop – these are getting worse every time.

    You need a plumb line drawn on the wall across from your work to at least help a little with the club face alignment. Looking at the from the side with your head cocked 90* is the worst method for squaring the grip that I’ve ever seen. This is especially important for a putter, as you know. Not a small thing or an advance detail. Also, SAVE THAT GRIP! That’s $15 on eBay!

    Too bad you didn’t save the $25.00 grip.New grips are VERY easy to save.

    Thanks very helpful video. As a regripper I have not come across one of these yet so now I know what to expect! Though, when doing instructional videos please use safer razor blade technique, always slice away from you.

    That grip was 30* off square to the face. At least. 🙂

    I’ll give him credit for showing the mistakes; we are after all human.

    what a hack.

    So I saw that you just slipped the grip on like normal. Did you cut a hole in the new grip to allow yourself access to the adjustable screw? Just curious.

      No, I didn’t need to cut, or expand, the existing hole in the grip. I was still able to use the wrench to adjust the length with the grip as it is.
