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.

Tried it and no magic in it for me. Got tired of it sticking in my bag too.

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.

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
