Does anyone have them or use them? Any advice and would you recommend giving them a try?

I use one and I'd definitely recommend using one, especially if you tend to use your wrists a lot during your stroke.  At least for me, it helps me in keeping the putter face square.

THIS! I also like the bigger grip ( I use a Super Stroke Slim 3.0 ), it helps me to remember to use my shoulders in the putting stroke rather than in my wrist/hands. I would recommend trying one if you are having trouble on the greens. My putts per round went down significantly when I changed to the Super Strike grips. Hope this helps!

Some people like them because it helps you to not be too wristy, and others don't because it takes some of your touch out of the stroke.

I switched to one at the end of last year (Super Stroke 3.0) and very happy with the change so far. Takes a little getting used to, though.

Switched last year to a Super Stroke 3.0 I certainly noticed a difference in the putts from about 10 feet and in. Outside of that, no real change in feel or make-ability. The one downside that I came across- many putts that would have missed completely turned into lipglancers and lipouts. Eventually, more went in than lipped out though.

My Taylor Made Rossa putter grip was falling apart so I just had a Winn Pro fat grip put on.  It's a medium sized fat one, I don't like the super fat ones.  I am looking forward to using it.  I have a tendency to just wiggle the putter to much during my stroke and miss putts, also need to correct my alignment but that's another issue.  I do like the feel of it.  I hate that it no longer fits in the dedicated side putter tube of my bag lol.

Likewise. What I like is that it gives me more control with my stroke, since getting the 3.0 my putting has improved a bunch. YMMV, but I would at least give one a try. BTW, I'm sure you know they come in different sizes, so get one that fits your hands the best.

I have been using a Winn jumbo grip for years. I like the lite grip I can have with clutch putts.

SuperStroke 2.0 for me. Put one on a year ago, and my putting improved dramatically, especially from inside 15 ft. Bonus with the 2.0, it still fits in the putter well of my bag and doesn't hang up. Highly recommend!

Ive used the Superstroke 1.0 and 2.0 in the past and theyre nice.  Im not sure that it really improved my putting though.  You might experience more of a benefit with the bigger ones like the Fatso though...

I like my Winn fat grip.  I'd get a Superstroke if it would fit in the bag.

I'm sure that my Super Stroke 3.0 would fit into most bags. I guess I'm lucky that I have a specific chamber on the Ogio carry bag for it. It is an oversize slot that has no trouble handling the 3.0 and could probably swallow a larger one as well. I have also made a small concession to back issues by sticking one of those "Halo" ball pickups in the putter. It came with a clip so the putter can hang on the outside of the bag while on the pushcart or golfcart, but when not in use the putter fits into the bag no problem.

I've used that grip for 2 years now. My putting improved dramatically almost immediately, hope you have the same luck.

At the Golf Galaxy nearest to me, I was able to try out the Super Stroke grips and hated the feel.    I went with the Winn Excel Jumbo.    I really like it and it seems to have helped my putting tremendously.

Would not recommend it for a blade though, it just will take away all the feel.

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
