Help with regripping Putter

14 posts in this topic

I just purchased this putter and want to regrip it with something like a 'super stroke', maybe this model:

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/flatso-17.html

or

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/belly-17.html

or

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/products/putter-grips/belly-17.html

would any of these work with this putter? It has a 35" shaft. I am concerned with swing weight changes.

thanks, Tom

Any of those will work. The difference in weight will be greater with the first grip, but still not all that significant. You can always adjust the swing weight with lead tape or lead powder. One thing I would say is to have someone put the grip on for you if you aren't particularly experienced with installing grips. Super Stroke's can be tricky. A good club tech should be able to keep the swing weight the same if you like the way it currently feels.

Actually, there is a redundant 'belly putter' link there that should be changed to this:

http://www.superstrokeusa.com/store/putter-grips/mid-slim-20.html

couldn't figure out how to edit original post?

Tom

No worries. The mid slim is the lightest of the three at 50 grams. This might actually increase the swing weight of the putter depending on the weight of the original grip. Again a good club tech should be able to install it and keep the swing weight the same if you like the way it currently feels. I personally use the mid-slim 2.0 and like it a lot.

I would definately get a golf tech to do it for me. I like the feel of the longer grips, 17" because I extend my index fingers downward when I grip the putter, so I am leaning towards this grip right now:

I appreciate your advice!

I use a Mid-Slim 2.0 and love it a lot.  I would suggest you wrap your hands around some examples to see what feels best.

I re-grip most of my clubs myself, but completely agree with having the Super Stroke (or any putter grip with a flat on the front for that matter) put on by someone that is good at it.  I take a grip on most of my clubs by looking at the face, not the grip, but a putter grip needs to be on square.  A lot of places that sell those grips have someone competent to do the install (it ain't rocket science, but it takes a skill). They should also be able double check the swing weight.  The one I have is light and didn't change anything noticeably.

I wish I could say I did it myself, but didn't. I wouldn't mind learning how to make clubs.

Winn Jumbo Lite grip on Taylormade Rossa Sebring Sport-1 putter

Looks good. I'm sure you'll love the Winn, just curious why you decided not to go with a Super Stroke? It sounded like you were pretty set on one.

I liked the look, feel, and size of the Winn grip. It was available at the time, and the SS was not. It was also less expensive then the SS, and also seemed to be more suitable to my grip. I extend my index fingers downward when I grip, and it would probably extend further then the SS length, leaving a sharper edge. The feel of the Winn grip is pleasent, soft and easy to hold, whereas the SS has more of an extreme feel to me. It seems like the SS is the "grip rage" these days.

Fair enough. Putter grips are all about preference. Glad you found something you like.

    • 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?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
