Sarasota driving range shop on Moyer Loop near Morse Blvd across from the the fire station. Or, you can try the Arnold Palmer golf shop.

I've had grips done at Jim's Golf Shop on 441/27 next to Jersey Mike's in front of Target. Also at the Sarasota Golf Shop just south of 466A in TV between Morse and Walmart. I've seen them regripping clubs on the sidewalk in front of Birdie Golf, that's on 466 just east of Morse in the tan shopping next to Villages Discount Golf Cars.

Default Grips

I usually re-grip clubs myself. Shopping grips at Sarasota, they seem to have limited choices and inventory. Your experience?

Birdie's Golf on 466 close to Morse. Large selection and they install while you wait for the price of the grip. Usually about 10 bucks per grip for good quality.

I've been re-doing my own grips for 40 years. The toughest part is removing the old tape. Once that's done it's less than two minutes to apply new tape, lube with paint thinner and regroup. Then you let dry overnight/or 3-4 hours.

I buy my grip tape(2" wide double sided stick)and grips either from amazon or eBay. I always buy Golf Pride or Lamkin. The cover material for Winn grips is so thin it takes no time to wear through no matter how light your grip.

Jim's hasn't been Jim's for some time...........it's Edwin Watts now and I wouldn't let them touch any of my clubs, not even for a re grip.

I still go in there, and last time I was there the name Jim's Golf Shop was still on front along Edwin Watts. Seems like the same employees as well. I never had a problem with the other Edwin Watts on 466, bought a lot stuff there as well, just bought a new pair of Adidas Golf Shoes on sale for $50 at Christmas. I bought a new set of Taylormade M-4 Irons at Jim's just after the change over and last summer a Garmin Approach wrist GPS on sale for $129, and they're still selling online for $150 to $180, that was good deal. What has changed since they've become Edwin Watts that would make you stay away?

Well when you get a couple of clubs reshafted, and regripped by them, and the first time you get out on the course with them three days later the heads fly off the shafts on the first hit.....I kinda have a problem with that.

I've been doing mine for several years. Buy them on eBay. Cut the old grips off and use my air compressor (Watch on YouTube) to install new grips.
They're ready to play instantly. No messy solvent. Did them for a golf shop in Virginia as well.
Also have been putting golf components together for years. I've never had a head come off or anyone else's set I put together.

Amazon or eBay, you can get a kit ( tape, fluid, j-blade) and decent grips for far less then going to a golf shop.

Just had mine done at Edwin Watts on Wedgewood lane. They charged $2.00 each plus the grips. Dropped of the set and picked them up the next day, they offered to do them immediately, but I chose not to pressure them. I can't complain about them.
