I was trying out one of the new "TR" putters in the shop the other day, and couldn't get over how good the grip is.  Is anyone using one of these are your gamer?  I'm thinking about putting one on my Cleveland Classic 5.5 (my backup of my backup).  I really like the superstroke slim 3.0 I have on my Ghost Spider S and Metal-X #7, but this ping grip really has me thinking.  Any thoughts on the new Ping Midsize PP58 putter grip?

I know it's only been a few hours since I posted this, but I am really surprised nobody else has posted about it yet. I really liked this grip when messing around with the TR's at the store.  I am almost certain I'm throwing one on my CC 5.5 when I get a chance.

I didn't see any when I searched before I posted this thread, but just found one now from back in february talking about the grips on the scottsdale tr putters.  I couldn't find any other threads besides that.  This being golfwrx and all, I expected practically a megathread about it, but I guess it's no superstroke. ;)

I have a Scottsdale TR Piper C, but I don't like the grip. I would actually like to put on a back-weighted grip, but the only one I know of (Secret grip) is too big. Hopefully, Lamkin or Golf Pride will come out with a weighted grip.

The cord on the TR grip makes it feel too slick.

I guess I'm being too specific looking for info about the midsize version, or does the pp58 only come in midsize?  Thanks though.

I have to disagree with the guy that feels the cord makes it feel slick. For me, it feels very substantial and solid in the hands. I've only had it a few days, but so far I am enjoying this mid size ping model on my Nome TR.

Have it on my Redwood Anser (two tapes) for one round and a few practise sessions.
For me it's the perfect grip which I've been searching for years.

I would say it's the opposite to slick.

The black version is Midsize and comes on the Scottsdale TR. The gray version is regular size and comes on the Anser line as standard. Both are available on Golfworks.

I put this grip on my putter in the beginning of the season. It felt great when it was new, but now it's grimy and hard. I tried wiping it off with a towel and it still feels the same way. This grip feels amazing when its new, but the durability on it is non satisfactory.

No, not to me.  I've had one on my old stainless steel Anser 2 for a couple of months now, and it feels like it was made for this putter.  Shot my best round of the year with my Anser 2.

had this grip for a few months now and these go slick pretty fast. At first it felt great but after a month or two its just bad. Im going back to non cord grips now since theres no good cord grips anymore. I will probably get iomic or pure.

+1 on the sand paper.  I use it every couple of weeks followed by a bath in warm soapy water, seems to do the trick.

As I mentioned, I've had my grip on my old anser 2 now for two months, and mine isn't slick at all. I play 2-3 times a week, and practice putting at home almost every day. What are you doing with a putter grip that would wear it out so fast?

I kind of agree with you about the grip getting slick, ill change it once the putter goes sour.

The Lamkin Deep Etched Cord grip is this best cord putter grip made. Golf Pride had a great one as well but very hard to find these days.

I did not use sand paper but I did clean it twice. I just ripped it off and threw on a ping man grip. My favorite grips are iomic, pure, ping man and the lamkin version of the pingman grip. Iomic grips are very nice feeling better than pp58 and better than most grips IMO. Its just the price.

The Deep Etched Grip can still be had from GolfWORKS for around $4

The Golf Pride one that I'm talking about was call the the Pro Score Cord Pistol ( I think)

I have the PP58 Midsize on my Scottsdale TR "Tatum". That was the original stock type of grip.

I have the large Iomic on my TR Mills putter.

The size of the PP58-Mid up near the butt end is only slightly larger (and somewhat squarer) but down toward the bottom of the grip the large Iomic gets a fair bit skinnier than the Ping. So overall the PP58-Mid feels noticeably bigger.

The cord grip also has a firmer and much coarser texture, that's the whole point of a cord grip. It is not remotely "slick" unless you let sweat and crud build up on it for several rounds without cleaning it. A rubber/cord grip will quickly accumulate gunk and needs to be wiped off regularly and occasionally cleaned with a brush and some water. But it will take hundreds of rounds, if ever, to actually get worn shiny and slick like a rubber Pingman or similar.

In any case, no rubber/cord grip is going to feel remotely like an elastomer grip such as the Iomic. That slightly squishy, clingy feel is once again the whole point of an Iomic grip. If you like the Iomic feel, that's the grip to get. If you want firm and scratchy the PP58 cord grip is great.

P.S. In my experience, wiping firmly with a washcloth and warm water gets an Iomic about as clean as it could ever be. You'd have to get something pretty darned tough and nasty on an Iomic for it not to come clean when you wipe it off with a wet cloth. A rubber and cord grip is going to absolutely have to be cleaned with a brush and soapy water once in a while and eventually it will benefit from a sandpaper treatment. So once again, if you want a grip that easily wipes clean you do not want the PP58 or any other rubber+cord grip.

I have a 1018 carbon head putter with some deep milling, thus wanted a bit firmer grip....End up with this by accident.  I guess these are not made any more, bought the remaining inventory at the golf shop - Lamkin something
