Curious if any claw grippers out there have purchased and used the new SuperStroke Traxion claw grip? If so, is it worth the investment? I know it's subjective, but wondering what people thinks so far. Thanks in advance

    i use the pistol gtr 2.0, and use the claw exclusively. i haven't tried the claw putter grip on an actual putter, but, when i tried it in the store i didn't like how it felt in my left hand.

    Didn't like it at all for claw gripping i prefer to tour 2.0. The claw is more rectangular at the bottom and it just didn't feel right to me.

    Was about to post a question about grip preference for claw grippers myself. Don't want to hijack your thread, but for those of you using the claw, what grip do you use?

    I'm a pencil gripper Ala tommy fleetwood and I tried the new superstrokes but I prefer the non tapered regular series so both my hands are on the same size of grip. I like old mid slim 2.0 aka the new tour 2.0.

    Been using the pencil grip for about 2 months now and has change my game tremendously, in a good way. This is sad to admit, but i put on a flat cat like Justin rose uses and it’s so legit.

    I have the traxion claw 2.0. I originally bought it to use with a claw grip, but never fully transitioned to the claw technique. I still love the traxion claw, and still use it with a conventional grip technique.

    I use a weird version of a claw/pencil grip and use the Flat Cat. I think it’s the most stable for the way that I grip it. Not a fan of the Superstroke Claw grip at all. The fact that it tapers really takes away the same feel that the Flatso or Flat Cat provide.

    I tried the new SS claw grip and did not like it. It is not long enough for my liking. I really wish they'd bring back the old 13" SS Claw grip. I made the change to the 13" Lamkin putter grip and it's decent.

    Didn’t like the claw grip but I have always been a fan of the Pistol GTR 2.0.
