What’s the texture of the gravity grip like?
Finally stopped by GG today and got to the roll the black ER5 with that enormous gravity grip on it. Loved the new black look and loved the ER5 but was not a fan of that huge grip. Id buy one with the normal grip on it and will probably shift some items around to do just that. Very slick putter! But gravity grip, no thanks.
I am interested to know this, too. And when you say “huge” is there a comparable size to one of the Superstroke grip models, for example? Also, what was your sense of the tech and how it is supposed to work (even if the size was off putting to you)?
So texture wise it reminded me of a Superstroke grip. Had that same tacky sort of feel to it and that didn’t really bother me much.
If I remember correctly it was slightly tapered and I will say I did putt very well. It’s just very large like a jumbo SS grip and I’m just not use to large things in my hands? Lol I mean the putter and stroke was super smooth. If you dudes don’t mind the size you’ll probably like the grip.
I have the Gravity Grip in my hands - I find it's more comparable in texture to a Rosemark without all those nubs. It has a design on the grip that is indented, perhaps, to draw off moisture in the heat. I don't appreciate SuperStrokes because for me they tend to get slick in the heat. As to shape, think of the Gravity Grips as a smaller diameter Rosemark - skinnier but flatter on the sides. I find it comfortable in the hands. I think the flatter, slightly longer sides help the stability of your stroke.
At first putt, I wasn't sure that I liked it (the internals are that it has a small metal rod down the entire back of the grip (part of the tech)), but have stuck with it for 6 weeks. I found the design/tech helps to keep the back of my front wrist square to the line - you are more aware of the face. When I practice, I think of the back of the front wrist on my line and it stays square a bit longer. Tested it on the putting stick.
After a week or two with the GG, I switched to left hand low (where ball position is muy important) and started making everything - of course, it's a keeper. Happy I stuck with it. I am more precise with the hands now.
