To those who tinker with their own clubs, what would you recommend to look at as far as tools go? I'd like to learn to repair/change grips/reshaft, etc - but don't know where to start.

I'd like to of course start with regripping. I also need to reglue whatever the plastic piece is next to club head (can't think of the name).

Thanks in advance.

The plastic piece is called a ferrule. I would start with a small vise that u can clamp or bolt down. Then u buy the rubber shaft adapter to hold the shaft in. Those two will allow you to clamp the club down and use two hands to work with. I also have a grip remover (looks like a long coat hanger with a t-handle), a steel shaft cutter (kinda like a tube cutter), a steel shaft hacksaw blade and a special graphite shaft blade. I also use emery cloth, Dremel tool and an air compressor. You can buy every thing except the compressor from the club making section of the Golfsmith website or have them send you a catalog.

Perfect! Can't wait to hack on old clubs rather than the course!

Thank you!

I forgot about the heat gun. Most epoxies break down at 250-275 degrees. A good quality heat gun with an adjustable temp setting is a must if you are pulling shafts. Especially graphite shafts, you don't want an open flame near them when heating the hosel so use a good heat gun.

I bought a regripping station from GolfWorks which is where Golfsmith and the like get most of their products. It was about $250 total for a whole setup that has everything you "need" to get started regripping. I use the same station for pulling shafts and Laddog is absolutely right with his 2nd reply. While possible without, a heat gun makes it about 10000x easier. I don't mess with graphite shafts myself though...


I don't use a compressor but I hear that a lot of folks do and really appreciate it.

In the end I went this route of regripping and reshafting myself because I spent a lot of money and time waiting to have GolfSmith or GolfGalaxy repair my clubs and figured I'd have a lot more "pride" in ownership as well as time and cost savings doing it myself.

While I've definitely been frustrated a few times while "learning" its been worth every second and penny!
