I agree with Mr. Schran as to using the marker to help adjusting the Grip.

Giffin Grips need to be tuned to the wheel they are going to be used on. We
have one here at the Arts Center and it really only fits one of the many
Brent wheels we have. Most all of the ones that I have seen that people say
are "off" are simply improperly tuned.

Giffin Grips are simply another tool. Using them is neither good nor bad.
