Golfers are gear heads, equipment nerds and endless tinkerers, so when one of those late-night infomercials comes on promising instant results after having a few drinks, we listen a little more intently and have a tendency to get a little click-happy online. That’s where our Late Night Online Purchases franchise comes in, a review of a certain piece of equipment, training aid or something else that caught our eye with the help of our friends at BudgetGolf.com.
The advent of the oversized putter grip has not only made it to the PGA Tour, it’s taken over. From the early days of K.J. Choi’s jumbo grip in the early aughts to the company’s ubiquitous use today, Super Stroke cornered the market in oversized putter grips. The question has been answered as to whether players like them, but the deeper inquisition deals with how they work.
Super Stroke’s inherent principle lies in its tubular design. With their “Parallel Technology,” which essentially comes down to not tapering the grip — that is thicker at the top and skinnier at the bottom — Super Stroke offers a consistent feel in both the golfer’s hands while making their stroke.
You’ll often hear on professional broadcasts that the best putters in the world are able to use their “big muscles” the best in pressure situations. What this means is that instead of tending to let your hands flip through impact and the most important parts of the stroke, the no taper technology helps to keep your hands quiet while your arms and shoulders do the heavy lifting.
Super Stroke offers a variety of different sizes, widths and weights to help each golfer dial in their best putting grip. The proof is in the results, and no part of the game is more apt to a personal touch than putting.
