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.

What do you like on your pizza?
Pancakes, Waffles, or French Toast?
What kind of putter grip do you like?

Kind of comes down to personal preference.

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...

    • THANK YOU!!!!  No crap, really!! If you recall I asked about putting with trifocals and you as well as others gave me some great advice.  But this, this one putting statement supported what actually made all the difference for me in putting.    I started to do this, what you stated and it makes me feel good that I am actually doing something right with this crazy game.  Been frustrating day/week of practice
    • Your wish is the easiest one in the world to grant.  In fact I asked the Greatest Wish Granter I knew this very thing.   I said "Dad I wish somebody would improve the playability of my irons" Dad's response "Go practice". Those were irons from the 1970's if you recall the only game forgiveness they carried was hitting it in the very center of the face. So as my Dad granted me my wish 50 years ago, I now will now grant you your wish "Go Practice" Today legitimate golf club manufactures can back up their marketing claims with science and hard data.  Funny thing is, I can even back up their claims.  At 58 years old I can carry a Driver 264, that is supported by Trackman as well as on a golf course with GPS marking.  In 2019 my longest drive went 340 yards, that was only 1 drive and it was crazy.  Flat hole I will add not down hill.  Probably will never do it again and I wasn't even trying to crush it when I did. At the peak of my physical shape roughly 36 years ago, mind you I did play some college football I didn't hit one drive 300 yards and probably averaged at BEST 250 yards with roll out.   The difference is 100% gear, clubs are more playable, more forgiving, longer by a lot because I am not stronger and faster in my swing today then at 22. Only issue, I scored significantly better with those old inferior technology clubs then today by a lot.   And oh by the way, not trying to attack you.
    • My son actually looks at a spot about an inch in front of the ball at address. His line of line is determined by a blade of grass about two feet in front of the ball towards his target. He originally stared at various points on the ball and experimented some time ago by moving his attention to one inch in front of the ball. 
    • None of the above. I’m usually thinking about b00bs or booze. 
    • I'm fully on board with you, yeah. I've had my Whoop auto-detect a "nap" when I sit and watch a movie mid-afternoon. I had one of those around Christmas when we watched a movie. 🙂 Of course, I don't expect it to know if I'm actually asleep or just lying there not moving much. I'm sure my breathing slows a bit, my heart rate drops a bit, and it's a lot like "light sleep." May even be almost as restorative. So I don't have a problem with that (though I did delete the nap, as I wasn't actually asleep).
