Hi all I am getting a new Putter that's a done deal my mind is made up. This will be my 5th Putter in 50 years of golf so i tend not to change them to often. I was already to book a fitting but then read that some things changed with Edel and it got me a little spooked. So should i be concerned or not. Thank you in advance for you feedback
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.
