Hi there.  I'm looking to get some feedback on a product I'm working on.  The below model would be designed for players who use the left hand low (cross handed) putting grip.  The idea is that it locks your hands into the same position every time creating consistency in your putting stroke.  The only down side to the grips is that they don't conform to the rules.

  • Would you use this grip if it wasn't tournament legal.
  • Would you buy it as a practice tool for off season training?
  • How much would you pay for it.

Thanks for your help!

Forgot to mention I would be making around 4 different styles:  conventional, conventional variation, cross handed, and claw.  Would this change your mind?

  • No, I would not use the grip if it isn't legal.     There are plenty of different size and shape grips that are legal, and have no issues finding something I like.
  • No, I would not use it as a training tool.    Gripping the putter isn't something that I need training on; I need practice stroking putts and ingraining the stroke, not the grip.
  • Zero $.    Actually that's not correct because even if you gave them away for free I wouldn't use one for the above reasons.

This may be good for instructional use.  Like for beginners?  But beyond that... I don't see a use.

No, no, and $0. Do people have problems with not gripping the club the same every time?

Negatory. I think it's a slippery slope to suggest there is a "correct" way to hold the putter, even when talking in generalities (cross-hand, conventional, claw, etc.). The best grip is the one that allows you to repeat a good putting stroke.

I Hate practicing thread necromancy, butI felt the need to chime in. Golf fanatics I believe hate the idea of non confirming equipment, even if all their play is strictly casual. I could say I have a normal looking driver that let's you hit it 400 and dead center every time, and I believe everyone here would give the same response. Non conforming seems arbitrary when it comes to some things, but non conforming is non conforming. Why don't I just shoot the ball out of a mortar or slingshot then?

NOW. I believe there is a market for non conforming equipment that claims drastic improvement, but it aint the sand trap! Christ I'm sure we have all seen things like that putter that looks like a hammer, I mean they have to sell some of them!

No.  I am comfortable with my current midsize pistol grip.  My issue with training tools like this, is that you are not working with what you will have on the course.  I tend to minimize the use to training devices unless I can translate them to the course.

I would have to agree with this 100%, which is why I voted NO......

No and for more reasons than being non-conforming. I prefer as little contour on a putter grip as possible.

Not to mention the double faced chippers.

No. Using it in play would taint my rounds. I don't care if they are casual rounds. I compare myself to others that I expect are not cheating. Although I will never make as a pro, I at least know where I stand when I play legit.

Your product gives me some hope for my son!

I need something for my son who has handicapped fingers (6 joints as opposed to 18). I require something that can mold to fit his grip and be something I could transfer between each club or have a dozen made that could get put on a set of clubs.

Could you assist?

PS.

Legal or not golf should be about fun and spending time with your kids as they grow up!

This thread is very old, but.....

Why would I buy a grip that forces me to grip the way someone else does, even as a "training aid"?

I seriously doubt whether repeating a putting grip, which is a very individual thing, is a problem for many golfers.

And, if it were, what are the chances that this particular one would suit them?

Hate to be negative, but this is not going to work out for you.

    • Carry-on one Driver golf club in airplane? US and to Eurpoe?
      Let us know how it works out. I'm pretty skeptical of your chances, regardless of the Huffington Post article, but am interested to hear how it really plays put. 
    • Your worst golf bargain
      The Alien wedge. That was the last gimmick "As Seen On TV" thing I ever got.
    • My irons keep breaking
      Hi all, first time posting. Basically looking some advice.  Bought a new set of wilson staff irons 2 years ago after being custom fitted for them in the local American Golf store.  About a month after i got them, the head flew off the 4 iron upon striking the ball from the fairway. Returned it to get repaired.  A few months later the exact same thing happened the same club. The store arranged for the whole set to get sent off to be checked.  Then just on Saturday past, the same thing happened to my pitching wedge. I returned to store yet again and they've sent the whole set off again.  My issue is that I've got zero confidence in the clubs. What can i do in this situation? I'm not in the position of splashing out on a whole new set of irons.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I scored a set of MacGregor IMG woods for nz$1 (50p uk, 70c US). Maybe not the most exotic clubs. In fact, they'd aspire to being ordinary. But I can't complain about the price :)   bm
