SuperStroke WristLock Putter Grip Review

50 Words or Less

The SuperStroke WristLock putter grip is longer than standard grips and has a pronounced butt section designed to lock your wrist during the putting stroke.

Minimizing the number of moving parts in the golf swing is a longstanding obsession for many golfers.  Countless clubs, training aids, and instructional systems have been sold on this premise.  The SuperStroke WristLock putter grip is among those pieces of equipment promising to remove a variable from your game.  I tested one to see if it worked as promised.


The SuperStroke WristLock is instantly recognizable as a SuperStroke grip.  SuperStroke’s logo is the dominant feature along two sides of the grip, and there are large swaths of color on an otherwise white grip.  Also familiar is the “Traxion” branding at the top of the grip.

Three colorways – orange/white, green/white, and black/white – give golfers some options for matching their SuperStroke WristLock with their current gear.


The WristLock putter grip will feel very familiar to anyone who has used a SuperStroke grip in the past.  SuperStroke states that this grip features new Traxion, but it doesn’t change the classic feel dramatically.  The grip still has that light, somewhat hollow feeling, and there’s ample tack to keep it secure in your hands.


The WristLock’s raison d’etre is right there in the name: it aims to lock the wrist in place to create “greater consistency in starting the ball on-line.”  It does this through its unusual (though USGA-approved) shape, which juts out at the top of the grip like a super-exaggerated pistol grip shape.  I’ve pictured the WristLock next to the Golf Pride Tour SNSR Contour [review HERE] for reference.

My first thought when I saw the WristLock was, “Will I need a longer putter to get the grip into my wrist?”  Answer: not necessarily.  The WristLock grip is 3″ longer than normal grips.  This can work on a longer putter, or you can adjust your set up with your current putter.

Per SuperStroke, the WristLock grip can work with many different putting styles, but the loft of your putter may need to be adjusted.  I found that the WristLock felt best with a Matt Kuchar-style set up where the putter shaft became an extension of my lead arm.  I could also see this working well with a lead-hand-low putting style.

In my testing, I found the WristLock grip to be effective at providing feedback, and the stroke I was making got solid results.  The main issue I had was being uncomfortable in that putting position.  If I were going to switch to a WristLock putter grip, I would want to construct a new putter around it.  I would likely want a little more length, more loft, and a head I could aim reliably with a lot of shaft lean.

Finally, the WristLock grip is designed to accept all SuperStroke “Tech-Port” accessories such as the CounterCore weights.  Weights are not included with the WristLock, but 25, 50, or 75 gram weights can be purchased separately for about $10 each.  Given the extra length in this grip, adding a back weight can have a pronounced effect on swing weight.


Innovations in putter grips are few and far between, so I applaud SuperStroke for bringing something new to the party with WristLock.  While I think that a switch to WristLock may take more than sliding on a new grip, it’s certainly something worth exploring for players who struggle with their putting.

  1. Would it be a great grip for left hand low?

  2. Matt I would just like to comment on the “grip will extend your putter 3 inches”. I have one of these grips and it did NOT extend my putter. My putter plays the exact same length as it did before the grip swap.
    Love your reviews but just wanted to let anyone know reading this one that it will not extend your putter.
    Keep up the great work

      Thank you. I emailed SuperStroke to verify that but didn’t hear back. Now I need to recheck my installation…

    I am a 14 year-old with a 5 handicap (thinking about playing for college). I noticed you did a review on the T-200 irons. I have them PW through 5 iron. I was looking for some 2/3 irons because the T-200 only goes up to a 4 iron. What irons do you recommend if i’m playing really well with the T-200 irons? (160 carry with 7-iron extra stiff shafts) I was thinking the P-760‘s?


    • Matt Saternus


      If you’re aiming to play golf competitively, you need to get fit for your equipment. The P-760 might be a good option for you, it might be terrible. The only way to find out what’s optimal is to work with a fitter.


      • Max McWilliams

        Thanks for the reply! I got fitted for clubs about 8 months ago but my golf coaches have told be lower irons would be great for my game. I would definitely be fitted for them just wanted to have some prior knowledge about what 2/3 iron would be the most similar to the T-200’s. Thank you!

        • Matt Saternus


          Are you talking about a similar look, similar launch/spin, similar forgiveness? Personally I would forget about finding something similar and just get something that hit the number I needed very consistently. I’d probably be looking at utility irons like the New Level 4955HB, Wilson Staff Model Utility Iron, and Titleist U500.

    How much more length would you want on your putter for this grip? And how much more loft?

    • Matt Saternus


      The answers to both of those depend on your body and the way you set up with this grip. Personally, I would need at least a couple inches and about 3 degrees of loft.


  5. Daniel Cantu Moya

    Is the super stroke wrist grip 5.0, 3.0, etc.?

    • Matt Saternus


      There’s only one size of WristLock grip, and Super Stroke does not have a numerical designation on it. In my opinion, it’s somewhere in the range of 2 or 3.


  6. Andy LaCombe

    I have just started looking at this and can not believe that Super Stroke do not have more information on their website. How can they not have:

    1. Detailed fitting information
    – Where does the grip go on the wrist
    – Is it intended to just replace a regular grip with no shaft modification
    – Do you need to modify the putter loft (in general, how much)
    2. Recommendations for best types of stroke
    3. Recommendation for best head types
    4. Any head types that may be worse than others
    5. Andy strokes/grips that might struggle with this grip

    The way I see their site is, they came up with a p[istol grip that they rotate 90º and said here it is, without really guiding their customers. I would hate to tear into an expensive putter with this grip, only to find it did not work and I have to have the putter reshafted and/or relofted.

    This looks like a great idea but more info is needed – you provided some on the length of the putter might not change, but you showed it against your forearm rather than your wrist.

  7. Matt,
    I have a 34″ Odyssey Double Wide Flow Black putter with the Stoke Lab shaft. I have a left hand putting style. I’m 5’11” – 6’0″ in height. Will the WristLock Grip be a good fit for my putting style? Also, will I have to adjust the loft of the putter, the lie of the putter, or both. Your input on this would be greatly appreciated.

      Only a fitter or coach working with you in person could make a meaningful guess as to whether or not the WristLock would work well for you. Same goes for adjustments after the fact.
      My suggestion is that if you’re unhappy with your current set up, changing the grip is a pretty cheap way to try something new. You can always go back to the original grip if you dislike the WristLock.



  8. Just added this grip to my PXG gun boat putter and have been so pleased with the results so far! I made four putts over 10 feet in my last round.

    You do need to lengthen your putter by about 2.5in for this to work.

    I place the extended part on my watch and did not have any issue with my wrist hurting.

    I think it also helps to put the ball a little more forward in your stance.

    Can’t say enough good things about this grip. Definitely staying in the bag.

  9. Thank you for the review. I tried armlocking for about 6 months but couldn’t overcome the feel aspect & went back. I do miss the “no breaking” of the wrist though so this seems like a viable option. However I see many basic engineering flaws in this grip right off the bat. 1st is you will need to extend your putter shaft as the grip doesn’t have the last 3” inches filled in (butt end). Another huge issue is the bulb not being large enough (for most) to fit comfortably in the wrist pocket. I see many reviews including this one where the subject is resting it 1-3” passed the wrist defeating the purpose of the wristlock grip & going into armlock territory. I think the concept is great but some more changes are needed.

    Do I need to lengthen my putter? If I don’t will it be too short?
