New SuperStroke 2.0 Putter Grip Spotted on Tour

Published

on

SuperStroke’s new grip, the 2.o, fills the gap between the company’s previous standard and midsize putter grips, the “Slim and Ultra Slim.”

The “Slim” grip, used by Jason Dufner, was the company’s most popular grip on the PGA Tour, measuring 1.3 inches in diameter. The 2012 Ultra Slim was thinner, with a 1-inch diameter. The 2012 lineup also included its “Fatso” grip, which measured 1.67 inches in diameter and is used on tour by Matt Bettencourt.

“A lot of players on tour wanted a grip that was thicker than the Ultra Slim, but not as thick as the Slim, ” according to Jon Luna, director of marketing for SuperStroke. “So we created the 2.0, which measures 1.2 inches in diameter.”

Luna said that the 2012 line had names that were sometimes confusing to consumers, so to correspond with the 2.0 the company renamed the Ultra Slim the “1.0,” the Slim “3.0” and the Fatso “5.0.” A 4.0 grip is also scheduled for 2013, although the product is still in the development stage.

Along with the name changes, the company also changed the texture of the new grips, adding what Luna called “cross traction technology.”

 “We received feedback that the grips got a little slippery in humidity or when [a golfers] hands would sweat,” Luna said. “The new texture feels fixes the problem.”

The 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 5.0 will be available in the same six colors as the previous line: black, orange, red and lime green (pictured above), as well as in pink and blue.

Spotted: Nelly Korda’s TaylorMade P7CB irons

Published

on

We have seen some prototype TaylorMade cavity back irons floating around professional tours recently. The irons were just labeled “Proto” on the back. Rory McIlroy had the 4-iron in the bag, while Michael Block had an entire set in play at the PGA Championship.

We all speculated what the iron was and what the name might eventually be upon release, and now we know. It looks like TaylorMade is going with “P7CB,” since we spotted Nelly Korda testing clubs that bear that name this week.

We have heard players like Rory speak about the irons and how they are seeing a little better ball speed and controlled spin on mishits. A softer and more consistently solid feel has also been mentioned as an improvement with these new irons.

@golfwrx Spotted: New @TaylorMade Golf ? MILLION DOLLAR BABY (VHS) – Tommy Richman


We still don’t know all the details yet as TaylorMade isn’t ready to give those up, but hopefully, we will learn more soon about these forged cavity back irons.
