Was fiddling around with some Seemore putters that came stock with these and they felt great in my hands.  I believe it was the 1.52 model.  You don't see them very often, but I'm thinking of trying one out.

1. I like how a Superstroke is supposed to take your hands out of the stroke, but they've never felt natural to grip.  How do these compare?

2. How do they hold up over time?  They don't appear like they're going to be very durable.

3. Has anyone gamed both the 1.25 and 1.52?  Opinions?  What other grips are comparable in size?

I liked the 1.25 when I experimented with cross handed. Now back to conventional grip and skinny putter grip that I have used in the past. But I liked the Rosemark feel a lot more than Superstroke. I did not use the Rosemark a long time so have no answer for durability but I felt the would stay tacky a lot longer than the SS.

I have 1.52 Rosemark on my SeeMore Si5 putter.

Pros:

1.  Great feel/texture
2.  Looks great
3.  Plenty of markings to help with consistent hand placement, without being distracting
3.  I enjoy the size and shape, very much

Cons:

1.  White gets dirty extremely easy
2.  Horribly slick if grip gets wet, does not want to dry and becomes tacky


Biggest downside is I've had to take the headcover to towel with me to the greens.  If you place it on damp grass, it is horrible.  Other than that issue, it is a very nice grip.

I just got a new putter so not using it much.  I will consider putting one on my new putter (Bettinardi 2016 BB1F)

I have the 1.52 on a 2 Ball and am about to put a 1.25 on a Cameron.

The 1.52 is larger than a Superstroke Mid-Slim 2.0, but feels pretty comparable due to the shape.
The 1.25 feels a hair smaller, but is similar sized to the Lamkin Deep Etched.

Here is the 1.52 compared to the SS 2.0:

Here is the 1.25 compared to the Lamkin Deep Etched and Golfpride Tour Velvet:

Layman hit it dead on.  I found the Rosemark to be great UNTIL it got wet.  They just didn't work for me because it was way too slick when wet.

To be honest with you , I have been using Rosemark Grips for the past two  years  ( The 1.25)  here in Scotland & it gets mighty wet here & I have never had any issues with slippage....
In my opinion the best grip out there for using on a putter .
Only issue if any ,  is That of the ID of the bottom of the grip, it does not fit the shaft tight .. need to fill in, I wrap amalgamating tape prior to shafting up   & then trim off with a stanley blade
