I don't know the 'recommended' wait time, but so long as you do the re-grip the day before you play you should be fine.  If you're in a rush and are playing same day as regripping, I'd just hold off.

Yea the recommended minimum is 2 hours.

But I've had solvent coming out of the grip hole after 2 hours. I have a really aggressive swing and I've had grips twist on me after 2 hours. Just do it the day before and let it fully dry so you don't have to redo it.

I thought the rule of thumb was an hour. But I had some done yesterday and they still don't feel solid today. I'm wondering if it's because of multiple wraps. Also these grips were pulled/saved from another club just before so I'm wondering if they were soaked and need longer or worse they're atretched and ruined. Ot could it just be the case they used too much fluid, the tape got too "gooey" and they'll never dry?

Air and you can play immediately. If you're in a rush and air isn't an option, hairspray works fine and dries in minutes.

Air as in blow them on using an air compressor instead of using solvent and tape. Quicker, less messy and painstaking. I didn't see they were already on. A hairdryer should help the solvent dry up quicker though, I'd use it on the lowest heat setting though. Hot will make the tape turn loose and could dry the grips out.

Its been a day already and they feel a bit loose under the pinky and ring finger on the top hand. I think tape is already loose as there was just too much solvent in there with all the saving and regripping  going on. Probably need new ones again .... ugh

The other day I re-gripped a driver and was hitting it 20 minutes later at the range. I usually use gasoline since I always have some around.  I sometimes use naphtha or mineral spirits. They all are good to go in less then 30 minutes.

The trick is not to use more then you need. Just fill the grip and pour it over the tape catching the drippings for reuse. .

Do you ever run into a situation where the tape is just too soaked and mushy to ever dry and the grip never feels totally secure?

only if you use too much solvent, and or do not seat the grip properly so the excess gets trapped in the butt end and does not squirt out the grip hole.   I always check to make sure the hole is not plugged before i put on the grips, and always slam the grip end into the ground on a towel to push any extra out.

I guess that's what they since I took a few practice swings felt it getting looser and pulled it off with my hands. Oops so much for that grip. Now I'm concerned about the 2nd one I had done yesterday too. Probably feel better to yank that off too and start over.
One odd thing about the grip I just pulled off with my hands: seemed like the bottom part wasn't double sided; side in contact with grip was smooth. Does that make any sense? These grips had 3 wraps on the bottom remember

sounds like who ever put those on for you used buildup tape and didn't put a top layer of double sided, take them back to the shop and tell them to do it right...  if you did it, don't do it again.  I always use only 2 sided even if i am building them up, i just use more of it. I would just buy some materials at a golfsmith or wherever, and learn to do it yourself.

If you slid it off without damaging it, clean it out and install it yourself. That's the only way to know it's done how you want it and that it's done right. That's why I started doing clubwork, because I was never satisfied with the work I'd get done.

Reading this reminds me why I blow all my grips on.  Clean grips on clean shafts work like a champ.  I haven't used grip tape on my own clubs in 3 years.  

I do tape a regrip that is for someone else, its much more of a pain.

LOL!!! Biggest fail I've ever seen.

Additional lessons
1. How to slice your arm open by pulling knife toward you.
2. How to "do what I say and not what I do" regarding removing the old tape.
3. How to wad up new tape, creating multiple "alignment ribs" around the grip.
4. How to be environmentally friendly, by getting grass, dirt, sand on the tape as you lay it down on the ground.
5. How to kill the practice green by pouring mineral spirits or actone all over them.
6. How to hone your profanity skills, when using acetone to put a grip on, and the adhesive grabs when the new grip is has been installed 1 inch onto the shaft..
7. How to remove a functional grip, and ruin a brand new grip within 5 minutes.

Doesnt this guy also have some additional videos on youtube?  I think it was how to swing a golf club?

This is one of the worst thing about Youtube. People look up regripping and think this is correct. That is pathetically bad!

I will always stick a nail up into the grip hole to make sure it's not clogged with anything after sliding on the grip.  A few good raps on the floor with the butt end will also make sure the grip in completely on the shaft.

I've put grips on in the middle of the summer and driven to the golf course with the clubs in the trunk and played 18 with no slipping.
