SuperStroke Grips burst onto the scene in 2009 and had almost immediate uptake on the PGA Tour. A strong tour presence coupled with a truly innovative product made SuperStroke Grips a household name and the putter grip everyone needed to have. Part of the companies success is also due to its close working relationship and official endorsement with Jordan Speith who games a SuperStroke Traxion Flatso 1.0 Putter Grip on his Scotty Cameron 009 putter. Sergio Garcia is also a SuperStroke ambassador along with Putting Guru Phil Kenyon.
SuperStroke offers two models of putter grips – a standard grip and counterweighted model called CounterCore. Each of its putters features Traxion material and some now sport Spyne Technology (think reminder putter grips) that promote repeatable hand placement.
Conventional SuperStroke Grips
The ‘standard’ SuperStroke Putter Grips could loosely be called Round and Flat. We introduce to you the SuperStroke Traxion (Round) and SuperStroke Flatso Putter Grips.
SuperStroke Traxion Tour Putter Grips
The flagship model and No. 1 Putter Grip in golf. The SuperStroke Traxion Tour Putter Grip comes in four variants: the Ultra Slim 1.0, Mid-Slim 2.0, Slim 3.0 and Fatso 5.0. The no taper design (grip remains the same size from top to bottom) is what put SuperStorke on the map. Traxion Material, Spyne Technology comes standard with the option for CounterCore weighting available.
- The UltraSlim 1.0 has a diameter of 1″ and weighs 71 grams. The Edel equivalent is the Round Slim which has a diameter of 1″ and weighs 85 grams.
- The Mid-Slim 2.0 has a diameter of 1.17″ and weighs 55 grams. The Edel equivalent is the Round Standard which has a diameter of 1″ and weighs 105 grams.
- The Slim 3.0 has a diameter of 1.26″ and weighs 66 grams.
- The Fatso 5.0 has a diameter of 1.52″ and weighs 90 grams.
SuperStroke Traxion Flatso Putter Grips
Another flagship model from SuperStroke is the Flatso Putter Grip. Not surprisingly, it features a flat side and comes in three variants: the Flatso 1.0, Flatso 2.0, and the Flatso 3.0. The no taper design (grip remains the same size from top to bottom) is what put SuperStorke on the map. Traxion Material, Spyne Technology comes standard with the option for CounterCore weighting available. The Flatso grip is also known as Jordan Speith’s grip…
- The Flatso 1.0 has a diameter of 1.02″ and weighs 87 grams. The Edel equivalent is the Flat Slim which has a diameter of 1″ and weighs 85 grams.
- The Flatso 2.0 has a diameter of 1.08″ and weighs 50 grams. The Edel equivalent is the Flat Standard which has a diameter of 1.2″ and weighs 105 grams.
- The Flatso 3.0 has a diameter of 1.38″ and weighs 61 grams.
Counterweighted Superstroke Grips
SuperStroke has expanded its range and includes the ability to counterweight the majority of its grips with ‘CounterCore’ technology.
SuperStroke CounterCore Putter Grips
The CounterCore grip comes with a 50-gram weight and wrench with optional 25 gram and 75-gram weights available. Two variants are available: the CounterCore Flatso 1.0, CounterCore Flatso 2.0, and CounterCore Flatso 3.0 as well as the CounterCore Pistol GT Tour, CounterCore Pistol GT 1.0, and CounterCore Pistol GT 2.0. Unless you’ve been properly fit and understand the effect of counterweight on overall weight and feel, tread with caution as these changes can seriously affect your path, cadence, and tempo.
Pistol Putter Grips
A modern twist on the classic pistol. This is SuperStroke’s take on the Golf Pride Pro Only or the Golf Pride PP58 Putter Grip. (or the PP58 blacked-out version famously used by Tiger Woods) Traxion Material, Spyne Technology come standard.
SuperStroke Pistol GT Putter Grips
Another hybrid design, the Pistol GT has a pistol upper and no taper lower along with all of the SuperStroke technology – the Traxion material, Spyne Technology, and Tech-Port counterweighting. Three sizes are offered: the SuperStroke Pistol GT Tour, SuperStroke Pistol GT 1.0, and SuperStroke Pistol GT 2.0.
Other SuperStroke Grips
The model current offerings have significantly expanded and the variants constantly evolving. For 2021, the SuperStroke line-up includes the following:
SuperStroke Traxion Claw Putter Grip
The grip for those who have adopted the newest putting grip in golf. A pistol upper section transitions to a triple flat-sided lower section to accommodate all the variations that are being trialed. It is available in the 1.0 and 2.0 sizes only. This makes perfect sense as most claw users will be ‘cover golfers’. Why not watch this video in which David Edel explains if you could benefit from this grip. The Edel round is another great option for Claw grippers as explained here. If you’re confused after watching the video, get in touch with The Putter Tailor who will explain all!
SuperStroke Flatso 17 and XL+ Putter Grips
SuperStroke offers longer grips for those who use mid-length putters. The XL+ is 13.75″ long or 3.25″ longer than standard and the Flatso 17 is 17″ long or 6.5″ inches longer than standard.
SuperStroke SS2R Squared Putter Grip
The SS2R is a square version weighing in at 107 grams. If you like edges, this is the one for you.
SuperStroke WristLock Putter Grip
If you have significant shaft lean, forward press, or use an armlock approach, this grip has a pronounced butt section that rests above the wrist and lower forearm. If you’re thinking about this one and looking for lightning in a bottle, why not get fit first by The Putter Tailor before grasping at straws…
Edel Golf and SuperStroke Grips
Edel Golf promotes its own proprietary round and flat grips which come in flat or standard variants. As options, Edel clients can have a factory-installed Superstroke Tour 1.0, Superstroke Tour 2.0, Superstroke Tour 3.0, or Superstroke Tour 5.0 grip installed, or the SuperStoke Flatso 1.0, SuperStoke Flatso 2.0, or SuperStoke Flatso 3.0 grip.
In many ways, the SuperStroke Grip option comes as no surprise as the companies brand pillars are similar to Edel Golf’s. For example, they are driven by innovation, believing there is always a better way. Secondly, they won’t launch a new grip unless it’s better. Thirdly, they believe one size doesn’t fit all. As well, SuperStroke develops its product line based on the biomechanical needs and personal preferences of golfers.
