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.

    • Hmm, where have I heard that a DUI arrest is a medical issue before? Oh yeah, when his agent was arrested for DUI: http://www.golf.com/tour-and-news/tiger-woods-agent-mark-steinberg-arrested-drunken-driving-charges Color me skeptical. Not that it really matters. A DUI for an "unexpected reaction" to medication, which probably has a warning on it not to drive when taking it, is just as serious as a DUI for alcohol. If he's going through personal issues, I hope he sorts through them. But he shouldn't get a free pass because alcohol was not involved.
    • I figured it was meds, and while it still bothers me, i'm not as dissapointed as I was when I thought it was alcohol, just because I know how meds can affect you without even realizing it. I went through third degree burns to my left leg, and I did the same thing as him (though I wasn't caught or charged) for a few days thinking I was fine, before once becoming suddenly very tired at the wheel, I mean nodding off like a heroin addict. I had to pull into a parking lot and call some friends to come pick up me and my truck. I didn't drive again until I was off the meds. But it was a reaction I wasn't expecting. I had been tired throughout the ordeal after my surgeries, but I thought it was just my body telling me I needed rest. I had no experience with pain meds, or the anti-anxiety (Clonazepam or some such drug) meds they gave me after my workplace accident, and didn't know how they were affecting me.    I'm not defending Tiger, just like i'm not defending what I did. Had I been caught, I would have rightly been charged, just like Tiger.    And if you think driving at 3am post-surgery when you've slept most of the day and can't sleep at night is something out of the ordinary, I don't know what to tell you. I still go for a drive in the middle of the night when I can't sleep sometimes.  And in Tigers case, he is apparently also a known insomniac. 
    • Uhhhh…? You can have a different reaction weeks into a set drug regimen. Plenty of other factors can change. Dosage. Lack of sleep. Diet. The specific times you take things. I don't much care either way (he should not drive impaired - that puts others in danger) as it's off-course stuff, but I still like facts and dislike speculation.
    • From Sat: 1 - 3 putt 9 - 2 putts 8 - 1 putts I call that a pretty good day with the chicken stick!
    • Haven't been to a driving range yet this year and went out to play my first round of the year on Sat.  No warm up just right to the first tee and bam, nice lil fade to about 100 yards.  Drop it to 4' and I am putting for a birdie!  WOW!  What a way to start. Second hole I pared, third hole I pared as well!  What is going on I thought?  Bogey most of the other holes with a real bad triple but end the front with another par.  42 on the front is looking good! Play about the same on the back with a lot of bogeys and 3 more pars and end with a 43. 85 my first time out this year was sweet!  Only missed 1 fairway and was 14 & 15 for putting.
