Star Grip pioneered the tapeless grip installation method over 30 years ago. It's quick, simple, neat, and allows the club to be used immediately with no drying time! What makes Star grips the perfect fit for tapeless installation is that they use the highest rubber content of any grip on the market, which allows for extreme elasticity with no risk of stretching or tearing. You can install the grips over old tape, on build up tape, or directly on the bare shaft. It's also environmentally friendly as you are avoiding harmful solvents, and it takes less than 10 seconds! For those of you who prefer the “old school” tape & solvent method, you can do that as well.
