Anyone game one of these? I'm a hockey player and wondered what it would be like so I figured I would give it a shot

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I played hockey when I was a kid. This putter grip looks like a winner and I love the concept. I'm hoping the golf shop has one when I go there tomorrow.

    Circling back on this vs starting a new thread.



    Any updates on users of this grip? I think this might be a concept that would work for me, but was unsure on what the sizing might be like. I have not seen any of these locally.



    Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

    I always turned my super stroke where its flat on one side, keeps the putter and hands quite.



    Great product should have thought of this one my self!!

    Seems that grips like Cameron's Pistolero grip is somewhat similar. Skinny side to side, and taller top to bottom. Gives a flat like feel to me. I never liked the Pistolero though, I prefer wider side to side, as I have long fingers...

    I've tried this and a couple of my friends use it. Its an odd feeling at first but does keep the hands square.

    We started to carry the grip about 3 weeks ago and its been doing pretty darn well, we have only had a couple customers pull it off within a few days and most are really liking the benefits so far. I have to admit I'm pretty surprised.

    This is along the same concept but with a few more colors...considering that the flatcat only come in one horribly ugly green

    I tried a friends and strangely liked it. Just bought one today. I have a conventional grip rather than left-hand low, and this grip could help keep both hands are square. I'll have to at least try it. I don't see how I can get the grip back off without cutting it if this experiment goes sideways. Using a Superstroke 3.0 on my custom Edel right now.

    Straight up old school minus the two sided tape.



    I've hit a few putts with this thing and I thought it was pretty awesome. Liked it more than the super stroke.

    Got my 2 Flat Cats in the mail today, STD and FAT. have installed the STD on a UST frequency filtered shaft, all ready to go in my Seemore Project putter. initial thoughts on shaft without head, pretty **** fine!

  • smithjohnjrsmithjohnjr Grinder16 Advanced Members Posts: 838
    Careful which size you get... the key is matching size of grip to hand size I wear a L Titleist Players glove and the standard was way too big to sit properly in my hands. Just my opinion though - I think if I were to try again, the slim would be nice!
  • poppman2142poppman2142 Advanced Members Posts: 1,134 ✭✭
    I just put a slim on my Toulon Memphis putter and I really like it so far. I really get a sense of where the face is at during the stroke. I wish it was a little bit heavier, and had a darker color.

    I'm fortunate enough to live 10 minutes from the Golfworks outlet store where they have an absolutely wonderful display of all grips, on a simulated shaft piece so you can get the feel. I was looking at the Flat Cat, and I chose the Super Stroke Fatso 5.0 CCT. But I can tell you that I really liked the Flat Cat, and it would have been my next choice. It felt very nice, and I don't think you would go wrong choosing it (my opinion). Of course putter grips are something that everyone has to decide on for their individual liking. But it was very nice.

    I use a rubber clamp and vice. The guy in the install video used his foot on the ground and the base of a cabinet and threw the grip on like he didn't really care. I take my time and do it right.

    Why doesn't flat cat come in a color other than the green??? Seems odd to me. Maybe if you had lime paintfill on your putter or something. Maybe it's just me.

    Lots of people do it that way. Works just fine. A vice with a rubber clamp is better but isn't required.

    I installed my grips like this for years before I finally had a place to install a vice, and I'm extremely particular about my putter grips. Is it easier with a vice? Absolutely. Is there any less care or craftsmanship just because a vice isn't used? Absolutely not.



    The video was clearly an attempt to demonstrate to the average player that this grip can be installed at home by anyone. No special tools required.

    I put one on last week and the first round with it was actually quite good. I worked very hard to make sure that the grip and the putter face were in alignment. It felt really nice. I'll give more of a report after playing this weekend.

  • gunmetalgunmetal Advanced Members Posts: 1,801 ✭✭
    I've been using a Superstroke SS2R Squared and I'm guessing it's pretty similar because the concept seems similar. I like that the SS2R is heavier and acts as a counterweight. I'm sure at some point that I'll give the Flatcat a try as the whole concept of a flat leading edge aligned with the putter face makes a lot of sense.

    Bumping for more opinions on these grips.




    I ordered one several months ago - I just installed it two weeks ago because I couldn't decide on which of my 15 putters to try it on! But that is another discussion. LOL I finally put it on my Odyssey Works versa 7h, replacing the original SuperStroke grip it came with and I LOVE IT. It helps me with alignment since I know the back of my left hand and palm of my right are pointing directly to the line I am aiming for. It also helps to keep your wrists form breaking.



    I was a big fan of the original PING Palmlock grigs that are no longer available. The Flatcat is almost identical.

    I put the standard size on my Cameron X7M as a trial last night. Had a putting session during lunch and was pretty impressed with how many putts up hill, down hill and breaking both ways that I made from 10-15 feet and the ones I missed the speed was on point as well. Inside 5 feet is pretty much in the hole every time unless you get jerky or the wind blows.

    Installed a Fat model on my X5R. Had a flat grip on my custom Ping Anser Specify a while ago and loved it. I putt left hand low. Still getting used to the Fatty. Figured out today I need to grip my right (top) hand tight for best results.

    Anybody used a Flat Cat with game golf live? Air hole on side of putter grip rather than top, not sure if that'll matter w the game golf system (i.e. If I **** the tracker in the side hole).
