Maybe someone here can help me out. Mods feel free to move if in wrong section.

I like the idea and feeling in my hands of the superstroke slim lite putter grips.  My issue is i dont like the actual material on the grip.  Im used to the rubber feeling of a golfpride Tour classic.

I was doing a little research and stumbled upon "tacki mac big putter" grips and thought this might be right up my alley.  the material of the simple rubber grips and the size roughly of a superstroke slim lite.

Has anyone tried one of these grips?
would love any imput!

I used the Tiger Shark oversized putter grips for 15 years or more and still have an extra one somewhere in the house. I gravitated towards them because they reduced overly active hands in my putting grip and encouraged a very light grip for me. Surprisingly, a little more than a year ago I bought an old Bullseye and bought it only to own, but when I tried it out on my uneven wood floor, it felt so right and pointed so easily I put it in play as is, small skinny grip and all, and have bagged it since.

There are a wide number of grips, made of many materials, in many shapes and sizes, available these days. It doesn't take long to drop in on your convenient shop and see what's available.

thanks for your reply Shambles.  Unfortunately for me in the area I live I only have three choices.  Golf USA and Golfzilla being the reasonable ones.  Neither of which even carry superstroke grips and the only big grips they have are Tour Classics or Winn Avs. I might just buy one of these tacki macs to see how they feel.  Id rather invest 11 bucks and then 30 on a superstroke if i dont like it im not out that much.

250 grams for a grip!!! That's crazy. How much does the Superstroke weigh?

I recently bought a tour 2-ball blade with a Winn Jumbo on it. I fully expected to replace it but liked the feel and the low 60 gram weight.

Hanging 250 grams off the handle of your putter is gonna change things big time.

It is in the listing:

GRIP SPECIFICATIONS: .580 CORE, 250 GRAMS.

I think any grip that size that is made out of real rubber is gonna weigh a ton. Rubber is heavy… think how much a tire weighs.

good call, haha i hadnt looked at the listing fully! whoops my bad.  I guess i will have to go another route with my grip then.  I just love the feel of the rubber golfpride Tour Classic but prefer a non tapered grip.  Maybe there isnt anything out there like that, at least i havent seen any.

Check this out. It's an older model of Super Stroke slim lite. Pure rubber. I didn't like it because it was too much like a killer whale for my taste, but you can still find them online.

if you are just looking to see how it feels to use a fat grip, go buy 2 rolls of athletic tape and wrap up your grip with both rolls and test it out. I did that and ended up using it like that for 2 years before i broke down and paid for the super stroke. I now have the UST ST1 Super Jumbo on my MannKrafted and it is the shizz.

MY Ping Craz-E iWi came w/Winn grip that I found too small for comfort. I had a Lamkin JUMBO put on. I had the swingweight checked before and after, it went from F7 (w/Winn) to D6 w/Lamkin JUMBO. But, sooooo much more comfortable.

Not sure what the size difference is. But what about a Winn Jumbo firm? I play with a Midsize and the Jumbo is considerably bigger to me.

i wouldnt mind the winn and the ust for for its shape, but i hate the texture as it wears very fast! i prefer the oldschool rubber grips as they last forever and feel really solid and its all about feel for me when putting. i have tried large grips and that is what is making me search.  Find it funny that almost all superstrokes are reverse tapered.  Just measured the bottom and top of my slim lite 55 and its another superstroke reverse taper

Not as big as the super strokes or tiger sharks but have you tried the Scotty Cameron pistolero grips?

I was a local shop today and they feel real nice. Like the pistol grip feel.

Forgot to add. Tried both large putter grips mentioned here. Didn't last long as they are a pita to get in the bag.

Winn lite GIANT for me and I love it. My bag has a putter pocket though so that helps otherwise I'm not sure where it would fit as the rest of my bag has 14 openings and it would definitely not fit in any of them. My putting still sux but I seem to push/pull less puts with the huge grip.

You can also just get one of those tennis wraps, install it yourself and see if you like the resultant feel of a larger grip. There are many materials that can be made into a grip.

I hope Winn or superstroke reps are reading this so that they can make a foam filled grip that has a rubber outercovering. it would be perfect for feel and weight.
