grip rings?
« on: November 21, 2012, 04:27:44 PM »
Has anyone found a grip ring that works really well, or for what its intended purpose is for ?  I have tried a few eastern ones in the past , and they didnt work (grip just snaked over the ring after some time ), yet i have used Marcel's rings, but they only lasted so long.


Have seen some people use tape , but would like a nice clean look .


I dont mind busting out the air compressor every few days to get my grips back to where they should be , but i am getting to the point of not wanting to do it , if i can come up with a realistic solution (or part) to stop this from happening that would be great!

WOW I was just about to write this!!! I dealt with throttle grip for a few years now. The grip rings help, but the gorilla glue is #1 solution.

i never really had a issue with throttle grip , except it would always seem odi grips wear from the inside out .....really have yet to experience it ever again since i switched from using every single chemical (such as paint/hairspray/wd-40) to using air to put them on. Just have issues with the grips snaking over the grip stop , and curious if anyone has ever found a part to work good, and stop this from happening .

The only large diameter grip stops I can personally recall is Huck's design...
The new STLN grip rings visually appear slightly larger in comparison to the Eastern's...

I'm simply plagued...can throttle any grip in just about any weather condition within minutes 8(
...probably won't make a huge difference, though is your air supply nice-n-dry or contain some moisture/oils?
Some clean dry filtered air might offer a few extra days
