RE-GRIPPING A STICK
Let's face it, grips wear out. Replacing a grip can make your stick feel almost new again.

How to put a grip on your stick

1. Remove your old grip (unless you are putting on a chamois)

2. Practice wrapping the grip a few times with the adhesive covering on to get the hang of how far to start down the shaft.

3. Sit with the stick across your lap. The handle should be to your right. This ensures the grip will be applied in the best direction for top performance. The original grip may have been applied in the opposite direction or from top to bottom, but the method explained here is proven to provide better results for performance.

4. Carefully peel back a little bit of the adhesive covering and place where the original grip started, near the center of the stick.

5. The point of the tip of the grip should be facing away from you and hold in place with your left thumb, pull the grip with your right hand in a downward motion and rotate the stick slowly. This is a counter-clockwise rotation.

6. Make sure the first rotation is very tight, then apply even pressure and be consistent with the amount overlapped (it should be about 1/8)

7. Peel the adhesive as you go.

8. Once you get to the top of your stick cut the excess grip off and tape with electrical tape. You can also tape the bottom of the grip to secure it if you like. If you prefer a non-slip surface you can use hockey tape over the electrical tape.

Two grips can be applied for added girth, but many players find better control with a thin handle. Remember to reapply electrical tape when it starts coming loose.
