Super Stroke grips

9 posts in this topic

Saw some other threads about the Super Stroke grips. I just put one (mid slim 2.0) on my Scotty Del Mar and love it!! I stuck with the Scotty "Baby-T" grip for a long time, but thought I'd give this one a whirl as it was time to regrip anyway. I am normally a good putter - what separates my good rounds from okay rounds. I average about 26-28 putts a round and hope this one will improve that :)! I am not sure I would go with one of those fatter ones... What I like mostly is the absence of taper. I was going to try the "pistol" one Scotty has, but the transition from top to bottom was to great. Felt good in the top hand, but like a #2 pencil in the lower and I got "snappy" when I tested one out. Since our greens were recently punched, I have yet to see it a whole lot on course, but my green at home is Augusta fast and it works great. I did take it to another courses practice green and did quite good on a ~10.5 speed green. Slower greens, not too sure about, but thankfully I don't play on many of those. So I would recommend trying one out! I would start with the smaller so it is not too drastic of a change. Plus, there are no screws, etc. that I read about.

The Super Stroke is one of the best putter grips available. I prefer the ultra slim version. I like that it has a consistent width and is close to round. However, I like the round grip on my Edel slightly better.

I prefer the Winn Jumbo Lite to any of the super stroke grips

I got the 3.0 Super stroke. My putting has improved a bunch, cuz I now have my hands much more quiet.

Funny I just put a mid slim 2.0 on my Ping center shaft & it's ok - doesn't really do anything for me though.     Doesn't bother me or anything, just seems meh ... everything considered, I think I prefer the tapered feel and texture of the Tigershark midsize

I've had mine for over a year now, and I can say that it definitely has helped. Especially for 10-15 feet and in. As the putts get longer, no major difference since it is more of a speed test for those 30-40 footers. The LINE might be a bit better, but the distance control is a different head game.

I did the same but it took me a few months to get used to them.  It seemed to really hurt me on longer lag putts but now that I have gotten used to them my putting has gotten better.

I've been using a 3.0 on my Scotty Del Mar for about a year. I liked the new black/red/white grip, so I just ordered it. Well, I didn't realize that I ordered a 2.0 by mistake. I decided to keep it and not return it. I waited until my important league matches were over and had it put on yesterday. Although, they say that it's not much difference between the 3.0 and the 2.0, I personally like the bigger 3.0. I'm going to finish the season with the 2.0 and see how it goes. I personally like the fatter grip as it has helped me quiet my hands quite a bit.

    • I am a Spurs supporter (England football team) and have a stamp with a cockerel on it. It's clean and it does the job. I think it looks really tacky when someone scribbles on a golf ball 
    • With the exception of club championship, most of the events I play in are essentially open to any amateurs who want to play.  You may have to do a little searching, but I'm guessing there are similar opportunities in your region.     
    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.
