Jumbo putter grip

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

I purchased one of these this weekend:

I no longer play grip games while lining up a putt. I'm getting a little arthritis and this year I've noticed myself fondling my putter excessively when getting set up. Not sure if it's minor hand pain or lack of confidence over the ball but adding one of these has helped me. I know they're laughable and look atrocious but it's helped me.

 

I'm curious about others who've tried one of these and if you liked them enough to continue using or went back to a more normal size grip.

How do you fit that thing in the bag?

I put a Super-Stroke grip on my putter a month ago....and since have never rolled the ball better in my life! Could be mental, could be I just needed a new feel, but either way I love and don't see myself changing back anytime soon.

Ditto with me, its been about 6 weeks and I've never in my life been looking to make every putt inside 15 feet like I do now.  I have a Nike Tour bag, its not as big as most tour bags and the putter fits in it fine.

I putt a Winn jumbo putter grip on my putter sometime last summer and I've loved it. I can't imagine not using one now. It really keeps the hands still and has helped me with some of the yips.

B-Con, you're in Frisco! I'm up in Denton, we should meet up at Westridge or Plantation sometime.

I've been using a Super Stroke Slim for about six weeks. Love it!! What I like best is it has no taper. I putt "left hand low" and having a straight grip really feels great.

I'm a recent convert and really loving this new grip. Much more confident over shortish putts m

I has a Instructor recommend an oversize putter grip. I was reluctant, but he said to try it for a few months, and that If I didn't like it, he would buy me a regular grip to put back on. So I gave it a try, that was 6 years ago. I have used an oversize grip ever since then. Not as big as the one you posted, mine was a Tiger Shark grip. I now use an Odyssey Jumbo size grip on my putter.

 

Seems to be a more natural grip for me, and it's one less thing for me to worry about when putting. My hands just seem to naturally go into the right place.

A week into this grip, 45 holes and about 3 hours of practice putting. My lag putts are for sure more steady and consistent distance wise. Inside 10foot just feels much better.

 

I've had this putter about 7 years now, this grip will keep me on it for another 7 at least.

i play the superstroke slim on both my ping redwood anser and my tm spider and will probably never go back.

I have been using the Super Stroke Fatso for about a year. Love it, will never go back to a slimmer grip. Lots of folks start to make fun of it until I let them try it. They ALL are amazed at how "natural" their stroke feels.

As far as carrying it, I made a small add-on for my ClicGear, 9like the water bottle holder) works great.

Don't have the one mentioned, but I did try a huge Win grip on my putter and it had the opposite effect on me. I went back to a standard type grip. I felt disconnected with the putter.

I've used an oversize grip since 1996.  Back then....the "Tiger Shark" was the only one I could find and it wasn't as big as many of the oversize grips of today.   Whenever I buy a new putter, the first thing I do is have the grip that comes with the putter cut-off....and replaced before leave the store with it for the first time.

 

 

My current putter grip is a Winn Giant Pistol....

Big grips aren't for everyone....if they were,  every putter would come straight from the manufacturer with one already installed!!  LOL

 

 

.....but I love the oversize grips.......

I just put a Super Stroke Slim on my Ping Anser 5 and it feels great, I haven't played with it yet but I changed the way I grip the club and have more fingers on the grip and this really helps lock my wrists.

i have a winn jumbo lite grip and love it. At first, I had a hard time judging distance, but immediately, aim was spot on. Now distance is not an issue and ive never putted any better.

Winn Jumbo Lite FTW!
