Is there really an advantage to using the Super Stroke shape putter grips, or is the old style Ping putter style grips better? What say you?

I like grips that are totally round, no flat side

See? That's why chocolate isn't all the same! I like the flat sided Super Stroke putter grip. It feels very comfortable to me.

Why does Super Stroke have an optional weight for the grip? I thought you would want more weight in the putter head rather than the grip? I have an older Ping Anser 4 that I’m putting a new grip on.

The concept is known as counter weighting or counterbalance

Be careful adding weight to just the grip end. The putter head will feel very light. Counter-weighting putters also adds weight to the head.

Yeah, that is already a light head.  All the older Ping heads are.  We have a couple at the course and it’s like putting with a straw it’s so light.  I have a Ping Redwood Anser and an Anser 2 milled which are heavier.

Grips are such a personal preference as you can see from all the previous replies.  I use a midsize Pingman grip and build it up a couple extra layers.  I tried a putter with the golf pride Snsr grip and liked it too... not too far off from my Pingman.

 

I have the SS midslim on an old Scotty which is only take out if I’m putting like crap and need a different feel to get back on track.

I have one putter with the Golf Pride Tour SNSR and I really like that grip

I have another putter with the L.A.B Forward Press Grip and I really like that grip

The L.A.B Forward Press Grip is winning out to become my new go to grip at this moment with the Tour SNSR fading to back up status

I have a ping putter with a really fat grip I don’t like, think I’m selling it...

re-grip with a Ping grip and you'll get better money for it.

I have a very old, original, Ping Anser that I just replaced the grip on with a Lamkin, SinkFit, pistol grip and my putting improved dramatically. I’ve never putted with a heavy headed club so I can’t compare it to the lighter, vintage Ping. I just know the fatter grip was perfect for me.

Note that there are serveral types of Super Stroke grips.  I use a Super Stroke 2.0 Flatso grip; absolutely love it...used to have the fatter 3.0 (not flatso).  Either way, I can't see myself going back to the thin putter grips.  Only other one I may try is the pistol grip.  Best luck in your search.

Yeah I’m not sure what I will do now I’ve played 2 rounds with the fat grip and it’s feeling better lol...

    • Do your students lose their sponsorships when they use that word?
    • I agree completely.  Two reasons.  First, when you've learned Aimpoint Express, you've learned to collect the information presented in those books, for every single golf course you'll ever play in your life.  No need to buy another greens book, ever.  Second reason, once you have the book, you still have to learn  how to turn the arrows and numbers into an actual read.  Yeah, you'll know the putt goes left, but you need to learn how to estimate how FAR left it will go.  Aimpoint Express teaches you not just how to collect the data, but how to actually use the data to determine your start line.  I haven't priced an Aimpoint clinic for a few years, but I'll just about guarantee that the clinic price would be less than buying three greens books, and quite possibly less than buying just two.
    • I've been buying the Strackaline combo books. The price of yardage/green book combo is $125, and yardage only is $29-$47. A guy on Youtube was saying you should only buy the yardage book, and spend the $78-$96 you save on learning Aimpoint. Any thoughts?
    • And those who continue to downplay it prolong how long it will continue to be used. A friend postulated that the word is much more common in the south. Can't say that's true or not, but it "feels" somewhat accurate. "We" (my age group) said it some in the early 90s, but even by the time I graduated from HS we knew it wasn't a good word to say at all. I can't remember I said the word other than when discussing the "word" itself since 1996 or earlier.
