    how do you get stickers off?

    i just bought some titleist vokeys with the oil can finish because i hit them at the range and they felt very solid
    so i got home and i've always had this problem with everyclub that i've ever bought, they have those stupid stickers and what not on the shaft
    so how do you guys get yours off? i've been using rubbing alcohaul after soaking in a little water, but that doesn't seem to be powerfull enough for titleist's tape... any suggestions?

    thanks

    Urine tends to get the stickers off really nice.

    3M Adhesive Remover.

    You can find it at auto supply retailers such as Pep Boys, NAPA, etc. If it's good enough for taking tacky dealer stickers off the paint jobs of $75,000+ cars, it's good enough for your clubs.

    I've just ever used warm water, dishsoap, and a plastic bristled scrub brush and they come off easy. Of course they have all been Callaways and everything is easier with Callaways.
    If this doesn't work I hear joeysdaddy can lick the goo off just about anything.

    well i used warm water with soap and one of those green scrapy thingies, and it worked pretty good
    i'd try using the goo gone, but i dont have any (but my neighbors do...they went outta town this morning)

    and why do manufacturers have to put so many d*mn tags onthe club? they have usually 2 or 3 price tags, a warning or w/e, and then a piece of tape holding them on... why can't they just use like something that tightens over the shaft and then you can slip up against the grip???

    edit: yeah, my callaway clubs (x460 and heavenwood) were much easier but i think that that's because they were graphite shafts and not steel

    If you have gripping solvent (aka tape solvent), that works well. Just take off the sticker as best as you can, then when there's just that annoying residue left, apply some of the grip solvent to a paper towel and wipe it down...comes off easy. You can get this stuff at your local Golf shop (Golfsmith if you have to). Hope it helps.

    When I purchase clubs from Edwin Watts, they always use what looks like a hairdryer on the stickers and they turn black and come right off.

    This stuff is the best and is great to clean clubs and cover light scratches up. I even use it on my grips.

    I gave up on trying to get them off. I just leave them on and then when I sell them I can say "Only used a few rounds, still has the price tag on it" Those things will stay on forever though. I just got my old 360XD back from my dad, it's almost 3yrs. old and still has the stickers and price tag on it.

    WD40 works excellent. just peel off the sticker, then spray some WD40 on a rag and clearn the rest off, comes off easy. WD40 also good for maintaining scotty cameron putters.

    I see now why he was blasted, rightfully so. So much anger at such young age. On a side node, so do you actually live in Elgin? I used to live in Carpentersvielle/Streamwood/Schaumburg. I used to goto Bartlett Country club all the time, one of my favorites in the burbs.

    Almost any non-polar organic solvent should do the job. Rubbing alcohol is not truly "non-polar" from an organic chemistry standpoint, but does a so-so job. WD 40, lighter fluid, paint thinner, gasoline, and a host of other organic compounds mentioned should do the job. Ther is basically no risk to the finish on a steel shaft. I'd be a little more cautious on graphite shafts to be sure you don't ruin the finish.
    Seldom right, never in doubt......

    Someone mentioned the heat guns used at golf shops. That is the best way to remove them but if you don't have a heat gun then you can use a hair dryer. That works just as well but just takes a little longer.

    Ah so that's what they use. I figured it was just a hairdryer, cause it looks and even sounds similar to one

    Steam will soften it to the point that you can get them off....or any light solvent...lighter fluid or there is something called goo-be-gone in the paint section of your hardware store....works great.....goof luck

    because they bug me
    and some of the stickers i've gotten are like f*ckin yellow so then they distract me, and eventuallyi've found that they wear down and then get sticky, and after a good shot i always slide the club down between my hands...just out of habbit, so when there is a little sticky spot then the club gets stuck and then i look like a dumbas and sometimes the sticky sh*t gets on my glove

    so i just take them off

    Iron covers and stickers are mutually exclusive.

    Iron covers are for anal-retentive / "where did i leave my good pocket protector"-types. Leaving stickers on is for slobs. No one does both.

    I'll join the chorus touting the benefits of Goo Gone. It & Goof Off are differently branded versions of the same cleaner. Both are great for removing the adhesive from stickers, etc. They're also great for cleaning windshields, but that's another story.

    Lighter fluid works, also, but it is what I use when putting new grips on my clubs.Squirt it inside the grip, then cover the opening with a finger & shake vigorously, before sliding onto the club shaft. It does better than the expensive stuff golf shops sell for the purpose, plus it costs only a fraction of the amount.

    FTR, I remove ALL the stickers on my clubs, even the TT sticker that tells the shaft flex. I prefer the unadorned look. Also, I seldom sell any of the clubs I buy, so it has never been an issue about resale value either...

    Orange stuff that you use to clean your house ie. the citrus cleaner. Takes them off no problem. I use this stuff on everything in my house and even on my car as its a lot less toxic than other stuff.

    Goo gone, or some hyper citrius cleanser... or WD-40.

    Do not use a scrubbie (3M pad), use only your finger nail and start rubbing. Rinse with luke warm water... avoid watering the hosel or any part which may have adhesives (except the sticker).

    Warning... selling used clubs with the stickers intact may add value.

    LyleG... You did get the extension right but it's pretty bad when you misspell a four letter word... come on, admit it.

    Good reply LG, I liked the work around on them fukcers.

    I though I was this Hints From Heloise genus by using WD-40 all these years. I don't know why I didn't think of Goo Gone or Goof Off. Guess I'm not a genus after all.

    I just picked up a used TM Rosa Daytona at Play it Again Sports tonight and it had two old stickers on it. I'll try the Goo Gone and report the results.
