Fat Grips on Putters

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

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.

I love my SuperStroke 3.0 grip.

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.
