Reusable Bat Grips and Bat Tape
VukGripz bat grips can be reused! Although only tested and recorded by VukGripz employees, VukGripz bat grips can be reused on different bats. Through previous experiences while playing professional baseball, Owner RJ Vukovich was able to successfully test and reuse a single grip on 2 different bats on 3 different occasions (games, practices, and in the lab). Within his studies, he concluded a successful “re-grip” period for each grip. This “re-grip” has shown signs of lasting longer than the reported numbers below. His study include:
- New VukGripz bat grip was added to a new wood bat (Bat1)
- VukGripz bat grip was on the Bat1 for approximately 2 weeks (14 days)
- Bat1 had broke at the 2 week mark from when it was installed
- VukGripz bat grip was taken off Bat1 with the adhesive side facing upwards (do not let the grip stick to itself – will take a long time to undo)
- VukGripz bat grip was installed again on Bat2 and used for the rest of the month with no trouble (practice and playing)
- This happened on 2 other occasions and on both occasions the grip had lasted longer (no recorded time, number of uses, etc.)
*This was not a professional study. Owner, RJ Vukovich, has shared successful past experiences in which he has been able to reuse a VukGripz Bat Grip on numerous bats on numerous occasions. PLEASE NOTE: Each installation and re-installation is different. Use, time, installation, weather, exposure, along with many other elements can affect the re-installation of a grip onto another bat. If you have feedback or have successfully re-gripped a different bat with a VukGripz bat grip, please do not hesitate to email VukGripz at [email protected] Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
Grip lighter, hold tighter, even in wet conditions.

That means more bat feel and control with less fatigue.

Instructions for wrapping your sports’ equipment with a VukGripz bat grip.
For easy wrapping, if possible, use the skinniest tapered end of the bat tape to start the wrapping of your equipment. It is recommended to overlap your grip 1/8in as you wrap your equipment. This will allow for easy and precision wrapping. After the bat grip is installed on your equipment, be sure to go around the newly installed bat grip and apply strong pressure to assure the best adhesion possible (just squeeze the bat tape, do not squeeze and twist). Be sure to add a piece or electrical tape or any kind of tape to the finishing end to help protect that end. Best wrapping conditions: dry air and room temperature/70o F. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH.
PLEASE NOTE: Large tapered handles tend to take up more bat grip. The more overlap there is during installation, the lower the bat grip will be on the handle. Please be sure to take that into consideration when gripping your bat.
