So… I've finally got my hands on some of the new Edel round putter grips made by PURE.

I loved the originals (made by Tacki-Mac) but they would get hard and dry out a little bit if you weren't using them too often (I think the oils in your hands helped keep them soft and moisturized).

Anyway…

The new grips are a little bit thicker. Many people might not even notice, but I've always been quite sensitive to these sorts of things (or swing weight, etc.) You can see how much thicker in the pictures, and the last one is versus a grip still in the plastic wrapper.

The new grips are a little bit firmer at first (though my original tacki-mac grips were quite soft, and the new one in these photos is similarly firm), and they weigh about 28-30g more than the tacki-mac. So, if you've had your putter fit for weight particularly in the heel, you may still want to order the tacki-mac grips they still sell.

I was between the 40 and 60g counterweight when I fit my putter, so I put the grip on without thinking too much about it. The putter head does feel a little bit lighter, but I don't suspect it will affect things too much. But… that said, my stroke is pretty stable across a wider range of weight profiles than a lot of people, and I was between two weights when I chose my putter and opted for the lighter one. Plus, my putter is a variable-weight putter, so I can always make the head heavier. You may want to think twice about putting a heavier grip on your putter.

That said, I am very, very happy. I don't know that I'll have to change this grip out for five, six, ten years.

P.S. https://edelgolf.com/collections/grips - That page doesn't list the new grips, but they cost the same $10 as the tacki-mac one. You could probably just specify that you want the NEW PURE GRIPS in your order notes or something.

My first impressions are that I really like it. I thought the original Edel grip was slightly too thin. This grips has a great feel to it. I do think it dulls the feedback off the putter head compared the original Edel grip. Yea, I think I will like this grip a lot.

Update,

The more I putt with this grip the more I like it. I do think it makes my putter feel a tad bit lighter. Though I don't think it will bother me much. I just like wider grip. It feels more stable for me.

Good stuff right there. My Edel round grip is over four years old now, so I could use a change. Still works like a charm though ;-) haha.

That said, I'm fearing ruining the putter somehow making this change... I'm sure I'm dumb enough to figure out a way to do it.

Oh sweet!! I am not actually a fan of my original round Edel grip. It feels...weird. This one looks NOICE.

    • It looking more and more like Michigan is going to be going back to masks required.   Nothing official yet but several counties have such a huge uptick that they are recommended that masks be worn for everyone.   MSU and UM have now made requirements for all staff, facility and students be vaccinated.  
    • I’m not a big fan of that drill. It can cause your right elbow to get stuck on your side. I like this drill better and the feel that the right arm widens the backswing. Also, ‘staying connected’ doesn’t really mean that your arms should be glued to your sides. Check this thread out.  
    • Bullshit. You’re trolling. Did you poll any other native Americans or just the ones who would agree with your take? Or maybe your ‘friend’ just agreed with you because they are tired of your endless whining. Stop embarrassing yourself with your ‘silliness’.
    • I’m simply sharing the thoughts and perspective of people who’s opinions on the subject seem to be a lot more relevant than yours and mine. I’m not at all embarrassed because you disagree with them.
