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:

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.

    • I travelled back to NZ (from England) to visit family and had a chance to play a round of golf while there. I turned up dressed as I normally would for golf in England (longs, shirt, jersey) and bugger me...these guys must have thought I was a PGA Tour pro! They were all dressed in tatty shorts, tee shirts, no gloves and tennis shoes!! Thankfully I managed to keep the lie going (that I was a PGA Tour Pro) for at least the first drive! By the time Real Life (tm) caught up with me I was comfortably down the fairway and out of site of everyone else (apart from the 3 chaps I was playing with) :) Regards Mailman
    • Continue to struggle with my driver comfort which is typical for a new driver. I did have an amazing range session with it, set at 9.5 degrees loft. I know right now it is just me and I need to still get on a launch monitor.
    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings.
