SuperStroke Plus Series Putter Grip Review

The SuperStroke Plus Series putter grips combine the company’s large, taper-less designs with the ability to add a 50 gram counterweight.

Introduction

Counter balanced putters are supposed to help you make more putts.  Big putter grips are supposed to help you make more putts.  So, if you had a putter with a big, counter weighted grip, you’d never miss, right?

That’s the idea behind the Plus Series putter grips from SuperStroke.  They’ve taken their already-popular grips and made adding counterweights easy.

Looks

With the exception of the “+PLUS” logo, these new grips look very similar to SuperStroke’s other grips.  They’re primarily white with splashes of color (black or yellow) and large branding.  The other obvious difference is the size: the Plus Series is 3 inches longer.

Feel

The grip itself feels identical to SuperStroke’s other putter grips.  It’s soft, but there’s not too much give in it like some other soft grips.  There is some tack, but not much.

Performance

Let’s start with the grip itself.  I’m already a SuperStroke convert – the 2.0 grip has been on my putters for over two years.  The main reasons are the size and the taper-free design.  If you’re wondering if these big grips are for you, I get into that in detail HERE.  For those that already know their favorite SuperStroke grip, the Plus Series is currently available in the popular 2.0, 3.0, and Flatso 2.0 profiles.

What makes the SuperStroke Plus Series Putter Grips stand apart from other SuperStroke grips is the ability to seamlessly add a counterweight.  Currently the only weight available is 50 grams, and it’s a really nice choice because it’s noticeable but not too heavy.  With modern putters trending towards heavier and heavier heads, this counterbalance can be a nice way to put some feel back in your hands.  Also, if you tend to get a little shaky with the putter, the counterweight can help to steady your hands.  As we discussed in a recent Golf Myths Unplugged, counter balancing isn’t for everyone, but it’s a clear benefit for many players.

Of course, counterbalancing has been done for years.  What makes the SuperStroke Plus grips unique is that they make counterbalancing easy.  Though many golfers are intrigued by the concept, few would even know where to go to buy counterweights.  Even fewer would know what weights to buy.  Finally, who wants to drill holes in their grip and wrestle with weights that may or may not stay put?  With the SuperStroke Plus Series, everything is clean and simple to use.  If you find you don’t like the counterweight, simply take it out and screw the cover back on.

Conclusion

While I think this concept is really going to take flight when there are more weight options, the SuperStroke Plus Series is a big step towards making counterweighting (and the custom fitting thereof) available to more golfers.  The SuperStroke Plus Series grips make counterweighting simple and affordable for every golfer.

    Don’t see much point of this for a traditional putter unless you also extend the length of the putter 2 to 3 inches.

    Had grip installed with 59 gm weight. It rattles. How can it fix it. Tighting weight does not help.

      Brant,

      Sounds like you got a bad grip or a bad weight. I’d contact SuperStroke.

      Best,

      Matt

      Wrap some tape around the weight itself so it fits inside the shaft snugly. It will stop the rattle when you reinstall and tighten it down.

  3. Hi
    I am considering trying this out as I suffer with the Yips with a normal putting grip. Can one use a ‘claw’ grip with a Superstroke grip and a 39″ putter ?
    Any advice/suggestions would be appreciated…
