Opinions on Super Stroke putter grips?

11 posts in this topic

Thinking about putting one on my putter.. I've felt my friends but he's right handed. I really like the feel of holding it but not sure how I will hit putts with it? Anyone have any opinions on them?

I have one on my Ping Anser and love it. It's the Super Stroke Fatso. I love it and it certainly feels like it takes the hands out of the stroke.

I'm currently using the SuperStroke Ultra Slim grip and like it quite a bit.  I tried the Fatso grip, but thought it was too large and negatively impacted feel.

The ultra slim is tacky and comfortable, and I like the way that it promotes quiet hands and softer grip pressure, but maintains good feel of the putter face.

I have used Superstroke but keep going back to the Tiger Shark Jumbo... It's made by the same company but isn't as rounded. It is shaped more like a traditional putter grip.

What I have found with all of them is that my putting stroke has become a lot better. As many others will say it seems to take hand movement out of play. I think it really depends on the putter though... some seem to lose feeling others don't.

I use them on all my putters and like them.  Helps take my wrists out of my putting stroke.

I say go for it.  If you don't like it, cut it off and put a regular grip back on!

I put one on my SC KOMBI about a month ago. I like it better than the original grip.

I don't think I want a jumbo. Or the ultra slim. If probably go for something in the middle. And I like the more rounded feel so I would probably go with a super stroke over the tiger shark

ive had the fatso on my taylormade mallet for a few rounds now and although i had a few issues with missing short putts left from turning the club over which was soon sorted by moving my index finger on left hand over my middle and wedding ring finger on right hand instead of index and middle finger the putts are now superb, far better than before and i feel like if i make a putt it does go on the line i put it on every time now ,very pleased i switched also had 5 birdies in last two rounds from 15 feet and more and it will get better and better the more i get used to it :)

I've tried all of the sizes that SuperStroke offers and I've tried them on various putters.  At first it's a different feel and sometimes I liked it.  Eventually I ended up taking the superstrokes off, with the exception of the ultra slim, which i do like.  Maybe I have too much movements in my wrists when I putt and maybe I like it that way because I have always gone back.  The ultra slim is nice because it's not too fat and still allows me to putt the way I want without the sacrifice of feel.

Since I have too many putters, I have tried almost every grip out there.  I play Scotty Camerons and my favorite grip is the midsize red baby t grip which is red and has white dancing cameron letters down it.  It's a bit thicker than your regular grip but without the hardcore pistol feel of the Pistolero (which can be a bit too much).  Thus I highly recommend the midsize red baby t cameron grip as it's seems to be just thick enough while still providing excellent feel.

BTW - I have also tried several $100 Gripmaster grips.  They are okay but over time they lose their softness because they break in and this results in loss of feel in my opinion.

I put a Mid size 2.0 on my Odyssey #7 Metal X and LOVE it. I don't have large hands (medium size glove), but the 2.0 was just what I was looking for. I've tried the ultra slim 55 and super slim on some of my other putters, and ended up taking them off. In the past, the older model Superstroke had a "slick/slimy" feel to it when it was hot outside, and despite wiping my hands and the grip with a dry towel the feeling never quite went away. The NEW Superstroke has a much improved "tacky" feel to it, and I've had no problems so far. Bonus is the 2.0 grip still fits in the external putter well on my cart bag. Highly recommend the Mid Size 2.0.

      Well, I went ahead and bit. Amazon Warehouse Deals has a few for $86 each. I had a $25 Amazon GC from Christmas, so after tax, it's going to be $66. It says the packaging is damaged, but no mention of problems with the device. Here's hoping it comes in good shape, and that it warms up pretty quickly so I can use it!
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      The tournament I was supposed to play in was cancelled , so I played in a shotgun start today. The group I was in played at a quicker pace than the group in front and the group behind us, so I had plenty of opportunities for practicing greenside chipping and bunker shots as well as putting.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      While I expect it's largely accurate, I was more interested in a link to the actual quote than your paraphrase. The context of the question and interview plus the exact wording gives a clearer understanding of the statement. I accept deeper field of talent, I don't accept that it's automatically 'a ton' or an order of magnitude greater. What's the average score relative to the field (or % making the cut) in the PGA for the Pros vs. the PGA qualifiers from then to now? That could provide some insight to relative gap between majors field depth then and now. I am certain it's gotten harder for the PGA qualifiers to make it tot he weekend. I am less certain by how much the margin has shifted. The reason I stress the Majors and Opens is that size of field and openness to qualifiers is very important in making the top competitors face many elite players with potential to have a hot run of form. You're comparing apples to oranges there. That was ~ 1.5 million players in the U.S., not the world population of golfers. About 26 million golfers today in the U.S. Worldwide in 1920 who knows? But including Europe, Australia, and other 'commonwealth' countries it was likely double that - maybe triple. Also I can find no credible estimate that supports 100 million current golfers worldwide. Most generous is about 61 million. While there are a lot of clubs world-wide, participation of 'casual' unaffiliated golfers per club is not going to be the same as in the U.S. and that's the only way I get a number close to 100 million based on actual data. U.S. golf population talent base roughly tripled between Jack and Tiger and I expect worldwide it was a similar rate of increase. I think since the 1920's the U.S. has had about half the wold golf population, though that's started to decline of late as Asian participation increases. Jack was head and shoulders above highly competitive fields for nearly a generation similar to Tiger. I don't think human abilities change by orders of magnitude in short spans of time so I expect that Jack was an outlier of similar human ability as Tiger. How close and who has the edge is IMO debatable. Were Tiger's achievements (esp. the 'beat the field' streak) tougher than Jack's because of field depth, yes. How much more I'm not as sure as you. Did a relative 'competitive break' from full field events offered by the WGC's help Tiger there? Don't know but it's possible. Combine Tiger's regular wins and Majors and I have no problem giving him the greatest player of all time nod. I just don't think it's as cut and dried or by as large a margin as you seem to. They didn't play against each other so your confidence isn't any more a fact than my uncertainty. We're both estimating. Size of the field actually competing matters too, not just who wasn't invited to the party. I like the idea of a top player field and enjoy watching the events, but if only the top 50 players are playing they all have a better shot statistically than if the field was open to 156 or more players who are still very 'elite' in skill. As you've said in many posts, golf skill performance is highly variable. I agree and that's why I think size of field is relevant to the comparison, because I think the scoring variability of the top 90 golfers in the world overlaps considerably with the next 90 down and even a bit beyond that. That's why I wondered whether WGC wins are a bit less valuable than a major or a full field PGA tour event that's also open to Monday qualifying. Granted the world ranking system is better than it used to be, but it still weights international events more strongly than they deserve. Some of the reasons I think you may be undervaluing Nicklaus' achievement in comparing across eras.

      I managed to complete the January challenge (without missing a day, I believe). It was a great months' work for my game - having to blog every day sure helps to focus each session.
