Help with regripping Putter

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

 

I just purchased this putter and want to regrip it with something like a 'super stroke', maybe this model:

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/flatso-17.html

or

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/belly-17.html

or

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/belly-17.html

would any of these work with this putter? It has a 35" shaft. I am concerned with swing weight changes.

thanks, Tom

Any of those will work. The difference in weight will be greater with the first grip, but still not all that significant. You can always adjust the swing weight with lead tape or lead powder. One thing I would say is to have someone put the grip on for you if you aren't particularly experienced with installing grips. Super Stroke's can be tricky. A good club tech should be able to keep the swing weight the same if you like the way it currently feels.

Actually, there is a redundant 'belly putter' link there that should be changed to this:

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/store/putter-grips/mid-slim-20.html

couldn't figure out how to edit original post?

No worries. The mid slim is the lightest of the three at 50 grams. This might actually increase the swing weight of the putter depending on the weight of the original grip. Again a good club tech should be able to install it and keep the swing weight the same if you like the way it currently feels. I personally use the mid-slim 2.0 and like it a lot.

I would definately get a golf tech to do it for me. I like the feel of the longer grips, 17" because I extend my index fingers downward when I grip the putter, so I am leaning towards this grip right now:

I appreciate your advice!

I use a Mid-Slim 2.0 and love it a lot.  I would suggest you wrap your hands around some examples to see what feels best.

 

I re-grip most of my clubs myself, but completely agree with having the Super Stroke (or any putter grip with a flat on the front for that matter) put on by someone that is good at it.  I take a grip on most of my clubs by looking at the face, not the grip, but a putter grip needs to be on square.  A lot of places that sell those grips have someone competent to do the install (it ain't rocket science, but it takes a skill). They should also be able double check the swing weight.  The one I have is light and didn't change anything noticeably.

When my putter arrived today, I took it over to Golfsmith to get the grip changed. This is the grip I choose, and at only 60 grams the JumboLite looks pretty good as well:

I wish I could say I did it myself, but didn't. I wouldn't mind learning how to make clubs.

Looks good. I'm sure you'll love the Winn, just curious why you decided not to go with a Super Stroke? It sounded like you were pretty set on one.

I liked the look, feel, and size of the Winn grip. It was available at the time, and the SS was not. It was also less expensive then the SS, and also seemed to be more suitable to my grip. I extend my index fingers downward when I grip, and it would probably extend further then the SS length, leaving a sharper edge. The feel of the Winn grip is pleasent, soft and easy to hold, whereas the SS has more of an extreme feel to me. It seems like the SS is the "grip rage" these days.

Fair enough. Putter grips are all about preference. Glad you found something you like.
