SuperStroke putter grips were the spark behind the revolution in big putter grips and they continue to offer more variety to golfers than any other company.
Just a handful of years ago, having a large putter grip meant you were a hopeless putter. Now, thanks to a major championship and millions of dollars, SuperStroke has changed all that. Golfers today realize that grip size (and shape) is a matter of preference and fit, which is helping more golfers make more putts.
SuperStroke has always done a nice job offering a wide variety of colors, and they’ve recently expanded that effort with the release of the Midnight Series, seen here. As you would expect, the Midnight Series uses black as the base color instead of the standard white.
SuperStroke is also getting into the spirit of the Ryder Cup with American and European models.
SuperStroke grips have an interesting way of blending soft and firm feels. The core of the grip is firm, but the “cover” of the grip has a nice softness to it. The result is a balanced feel – not mushy but not hard, either.
One of the things that I constantly preach from my soap box here at PluggedInGolf is the importance of fitting. It’s because of the importance of fitting that I think SuperStroke grips are so good. Before they existed, your choices in putter grips were tiny and slightly less tiny. Now, thanks to SuperStroke, golfers have a huge variety of choices for not only size, but shape. If you look at the picture above, you can see the SuperStroke 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and Flatso Ultra. Additionally, SuperStroke makes a 5.0 (a larger version of the same shape as the 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0), the Claw (a grip designed for alternate hand positions), and the Flatso in two larger sizes. With all these options, you can find a grip that fits your hands and your stroke precisely which will lead to better putting.
One other thing I like about all SuperStroke grips is that they have a “Parallel Design” meaning they don’t taper or get smaller as you move towards the head. This allows for even grip pressure and helps to fight the wristy “flip” that so many players battle in their putting. It’s that lack of taper, plus the larger size, that caused me to switch to a 2.0 – a grip that you can now find on all my putters.
So which SuperStroke grip will help your putting? I wrote a complete guide to big putter grips which you can check out HERE, but the thing I’d like you to take away from this review is that SuperStroke gives you more choices than ever before. Using a big putter grip no longer carries a stigma – Jordan Spieth and others make tons of money with them – so check out all your options at your local pro shop and find the best grip for your game.
