Super Stroke putter grip: Anyone else?

L*ttaBalata said: I have a few putters, so I decided to try the Super Stroke on my RH putter--Odyssey 2-ball clone. The 18 holes I played, was the first full round of golf I've played in about a year. I had foot surgery this past October after suffering with serious pain since March/April of '07 (Heel spur about an inch wide!!--and Plantar Fasciitis, ouch). I shot an 88, 45 on the fron and 43 on the backside. I will say that it took me nearly the entire round of golf to find comfort with the S.S. I didn't go to the practice green AT ALL. Actually, I had just installed the S.S. minutes before leaving the house for the golf course. I hit a 22ft'r, no practice. . .just walked up and stroked it. That was on the 11th hole of the day. The S.S. is definitely an acquired taste, so to speak. I do see its benefits. . .you simply cannot flex your wrists the same way as you would with a "normal" size grip. I will definitely use it for the next couple rounds, but I have some great lefty putters and just feel more comfortable putting from that side anyway. Chet

J*rmour said: I tried the S.S. But it was just a little too big I thought. I went with the Tiger Shark grip instead. It's a good "tweener" size for me. The only thing is it feels like it may wear out pretty quickly. It does feel quite good since I have just switched to the left hand lower grip as a righty. I had a lot of three putts last year. This year I have been 2.5 rounds and have been without a three putt. Not sure if I can say that its the grip or the new stroke or both. Im leaning more towards the stroke and all the practice this winter.

I'm certainly going to give the S.S. at least a few rounds. I think the strangest part about it is that I'm putting righty. Wow, what a switch. Putted lefty for years, strange I guess to hit away righty, and putt lefty. But hey :emot-ange

Flat as a pancake, and hasn't changed in 20 years!!! I always end up at the back of the green, and the pin is usually in the front. Its a small, small green. I was on the back fringe and the pin wasn't 6 feet from the front. I tend to put straighter and with better control if I don't stand over it for too long. Its like I forget what I'm supposed to do if I'm there for more than a few seconds. Anyway, thanks!! Chet

*racer said: I've got a Tigershark grip, and I like it. I've played three rounds with it, and I'm putting better than ever.

Lyl*G said: The new putter I have arriving today has the Winn jumbo medalist on it. Its the same size as the tiger shark. Looking forward to trying it out.

5*ron said: Good luck puttin righty SnapHook'R !

W*st Coast Duffer said: I think Tiger needs one after this weekend.

But I'm getting better at it! :) Good to hear your getting better at it. I was looking at this big putter grip because it seems cheaper than the SuperStroke. You got me thinking about a bigger grip, plus those videos on the SuperStroke website are convincing lol. Big Lite, i saw it in my new Edwin Watts catalogue.Biglitegrip.com Good luck ! oh, and with a bigger grip like the SuperStroke or the Big Lite, can i use an interlocking grip, because the Big Lite one says "conventional" ? Thanks-

Thanks- As big as it is, i still interlock. . .I even tried a double or 4 finger interlock a couple times but seemed too restricted and uncomfortable. And I can't imagine any putter grip costing MORE than the S.S. I paid $40 for it basically. So, going cheaper is always a bonus. I'm going to check out the biglite though. Thanks for the link

Ch*fjohn said: I had a bad problem with pushing and pulling and breaking of my wrists. The super stroke will not allow you to break your wrists and thus a straighter more consistent stroke. I used it for about six months and in 15 tournaments. In my opinion it is great between the 20 to 5 foot range, but inside of 5' you get a twangy feeling when you strike the ball. Plus lag putting was a problem for me, very difficult to get a good feel of the putt. I switched to a tiger shark and my stroke is great. I think the SS is better as a training device than a grip to be used all the time.

I just put one on last night and after playing around with it today I think I'm really digging it. I won't know for sure until Friday afternoon, though.

MGP said: I just switched my four favorite putters over to the Winn Oversize Paddle grip. I have a decent putting stroke but occasionally get a little "wristy" at impact which plays hell with my distance control. These grips have totally taken my wrists out of the stroke and I'm putting a very consistent roll on the ball now. I also like the larger flat on the front side of the grip as it makes it almost impossible to misalign the putter when I grip it.

I won't know for sure until Friday afternoon, though. I just didnt like the feel right from the get go. I am a good enough putter that I didnt want to risk buggering my own stroke getting use to this thing. So I offed it.

k*ithpbz said: I have a superstroke and used it for about 3 months and really like the way it felt, i took it off because it was a pain to put in and take out of the bag

I'm a shitty putter with rediculously long fingers, so thus far it feels pretty good to me. I have a regular-sized one in my box of stuff if it ends up sucking though, because I had reservations even when I ordered it. I'm still holding out hope for it though. I'll tell you one thing - it makes the putter look about 6" shorter with that fat sucker on the end.
