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.

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
