Thinking of switching to a superstroke slim

13 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I'm thinking of replacing the stock grip on my Cleveland classic brz (blade) with a superstroke slim grip. I feel like I miss a lot of putts due to pushing or pulling in my stroke, and I'm thinking that this grip will help. I'm worried I'll lose feel for distance though, and that the fat grip will mess up the balance of the club. I know others have made the transition to this grip and I'm wondering if you can guys can help relate your experiences with it, I don't want to sacrifice too much distance control. Thanks, Seb

I love the feel of mine, and my putting has improved.  Give it a try.

I have the same putter, a few different CC blades, and the SS Slim on all of them. Been using a Rossie XG with the Slim lately. Can't say the SS grip has improved my putting but I do like the feel better. Like any high capper my putting is up and down. More a symptom of my overall short game than anything.

i use the slim superstroke and it has improved my putting greatly. it reduces the pressure and keeps you more relaxed when holding the putter. helps seperate the feel of your other grips from your irons and woods. i will never use anything else for my scotty putter.

I've been working on it a lot and have it pretty consistent now, so I think it's pretty good.

Yeah I would go for it. I just recently switched my grip on my Scottsdale Anser from a standard PING man cord to a Super Stroke ultra slim and am loving it so far. It really adds feel, and for me it felt like it added weight to my putter which helps

Thanks for the responses guys!

I think I'll go to my local shop and have them drop a superstroke slim on it.

Hopefully he can get to it within 2-3 hours, otherwise I'll have to wait until monday to get it.

I held one in the store today and it felt really good in my hands, I'm looking forward to trying it out.

I just finally bought a superstroke slim lite. I'll try it out these next two weeks and report back

I went to the superstroke slim for awhile last year. I'm not at my golf bag right now but I think it is the one that has a reverse taper... thinner at top? If so be careful. I putt lefthand low and it felt great at first. But I quickly found the thickness of the grip to be too small. I started putting too much wrist/hands back into my shots. Grip felt too small. Grip is still on the putter but I went back to a tigershark paddle grip for my backup putter. 48 inch long putter is still my primary putter. The SuperStroke comes out about twice a month... lasts a day or two then goes back in the trunk of my car. Also the grip got dirty quickly and lost tackiness after a few cleanings. It doesn't cost much to give it a try but I might not start with my favorite putter. Kind of like that old girl friend you would love to have back...

So I have used the grip for one nine hole round and an hour on the practice green and I love it. I feel like my distance control is better than ever, as I consistently got the ball within a foot from putts from the other side of the green (my wedge play was a little off). I didn't miss a putt from inside of 10 feet today, and it helped my game considerably. I missed every single fairway and still posted a +6 through nine. I really like this grip.

go for it, i did and it feels great.

I felt about it the same way, i was missing so many 10 footers, i put my stroke on video and saw i had a slight wrist action

on the backswing. By putting a superstroke mid 3.0 on my putter i thought i might reduce that. I was so right with that. club head stays much more

on line, and i start to hole those putts.

I'm using the SS Slim 3.0 and found that my distance control actually improved with it compared to a standard-size putter grip.  Seems backwards that a fatter grip would improve feel, but it worked for me.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
