Let’s face it, as a golfer, you want to take advantage of anything you can, whether it’s a new club design, swing technique, or warm-up drill. Anything to shoot a lower score. If that sounds like you, then look no farther than the end of your clubs – the grips, not the clubhead!
SuperStroke made their mark with putter grips; they reinvented the wheel so to speak. In 2009 the company launched a radically new concept – and design – in putter grips that have changed the game and helped golfers shave strokes ever since. SuperStroke grips have been used to win over $500 million in major golf tournaments and PGA events.
SuperStroke’s goal is to help golfers make every swing and every stroke the best it can be.
Golfers will tell you it’s all about feel and what’s more important than the grip that’s in the palm of your hand? And, as golfers change their putting grip and style, SuperStroke changes with them. Case in point is their new Traxion Claw putter grip. Its profile is unique and is designed to work with any number of variations of this fast-growing, deadly accurate putting style.
The design incorporates a pistol-like top section that helps to lock in the upper hand, while its three flat sides increase surface area to accommodate different lower hand positions. The grip uses SuperStroke’s Traxion Control technology – an advanced surface texture that improves feedback and tack. It places “X-shaped” treads in high sensory areas on the sides and bottom of the grip to enhance feel and comfort. Their “Spyne” technology – heavily embossed ridge along the underside of the grip – helps golfers repeat their hand position putt after putt which helps square the face at impact and start more putts on line. And their patented “No Taper” technology has been helping golfers minimize grip pressure and quiet their hands since 2009.
Another SuperStroke putter grip that is quickly gaining popularity is The new Pistol GT – a modern take on a beloved classic. They merged a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with No Taper Technology to help golfers maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke. They are available in 3 sizes: 1.0, 2.0, and Tour. All three sizes now offer Traxion™ Control, Spyne Technology, and Tech-Port to enhance feel, alignment, and back-weighting options.
SuperStroke’s club grips are gaining popularity as well. Their Traxion Tour grip is created with the company’s most advanced swing grip technologies. It all begins with their new surface texture – Traxion Control – which improves feedback and tackiness through its incredibly soft polyurethane outer layer. Just below the surface is Torsional Performance, a firm rubber core that adds high-performance stability and control. Lastly, SuperStroke has incorporated Taper Control Technology, which boosts the size of the lower hand area helping golfers reduce tension and improve clubhead speed.
I recently started playing the new Traxion Tour grips on my Callaway Apex irons and was amazed at the comfort, feel and control. Not only that, the red, white, and black color combinations looked great.
