Reverse taper grips help stabilize the hands, i.e., removing hands from putting to improve contact with the ball and provide consistency in line and distance control.

Golf Pride, after extensive testing is marketing the three basic grip shapes with the smaller upper section gradually tapering to a larger lower section. The dimpled polyurethane surface has a soft feel and is slightly tacky. The distinctive color pattern of the grips aids in consistent placement of the hands.

“Within the putter grip category, we observed a trend in which manufacturers were actively trying to design products that removed the hands from the putting process, whereas our research indicates that by optimizing the connection between the hands and grip that players can improve their performance,” says James Ledford, President of Golf Pride. “Through hundreds of concept iterations, our innovation team created Reverse Taper, which has tested quite positively with players of all skill levels.”
