Love the 1.0 and haven’t looked back, used to play the Winn pistol midsize which is still ok but not preferred. Just don’t buy the cheaper ones on Amazon that are fake, I made that mistake. They are not as durable and the feel is different.

Have had a Fatso 5.0 on my putters for about last 5 years and couldn't go back. It may not have as much feel on long putts as thinner grips, but for someone with overactive hands like me it's great for anything inside 12 foot.

I honestly think they probably aren't meant to be played by good players who rely on feel on the greens. More for hacks like me with twitchy hands.

Looking thru the Golfworks 2018 order catalogue and they list 24 or 25 separate styles and each one of those has 3-6 different colour patterns.  That’s about 110 different sku’s. That doesn’t even cover their iron/wood grips.  Talk about overkill.

I went back to my Ping Man on both putters. Putting it too streaky and weird to use the same grip forever lol

I use the 2.0 and love it. I do think they are best once they've been "broken in". I'm not a fan of them when they are new.

I still love the size and weight of the ss1.0

The problem is it peels easily in my humid climate.

I'm using the ultra 1.0, still like it even though I could probably live without it.

Really? Jordan Spieth, arguably the best putter in the world, who is a feel putter (his own words), plays one. Gimme a break.

I started with a 2.0 and eventually moved to the 3.0. I can’t go back. I just wish they would start offering some wilder designs on their grips. The logo is looking s bit dated.

Meh, had one on a putter I traded for, the slimmest one. Played it for bit, went back to Pingman.

The bigger size didn't bother me, I just like the feel of rubber grips..

Went from an Iomic midsize to a slim 3.0 to a flatso 1.0. The slim 3.0 just didnt feel like a putter grip I lost feel with that grip.

Have tried many different putter grips and always come back to the Mid Slim 2.0. Just gives me confidence and a comfortable feel.

I've been using the SS 2.0 for years and I love it, but their manufacturing tolerances are dogs***. I just went to Dicks to get a new one, and just about every one was a different length. I had 6 of them lined up next to each other, and they were all different. Some of them even different widths. It took me 20 minutes to find the one I wanted. I'm definitely a little OCD about my putter, but that's crazy. Note to self: Never order one online.
