    I've always loved that grip shape like the SNSR Contour Pro but prefer it a little larger than the Tour Tradition and be a firmer, single rubber feel. I currently use the Superstroke Pistol GT Tour and while the shape is right, the surface feel isn't ideal.

    I want to try that grip because my hands get very involved in my stroke and the larger style grips seem to help keep that from happening.

    Have only ever played what grip comes on my putter and would like to try out a GP grip since I have always played them in my irons. Don't like the softer super strokes. Would likely not test out a new putter grip on my own so this would be a good opportunity. Saw these in store and edited to blue star since I liked the feel of it best.

    • Tell us why you want to your selected grip. I currently play the Tour SNSR Contour, which I really like the shape of. However, at times I think it may be just a bit too soft as I like a firm feel with the putter grip. Would like to try out the Pro Only model.

    I typically like this shape of putter and one of my favorite Golf Pride putter grips is the Players Wrap. I build up the players wrap with a few extra wraps and I feel like the Green Star will give me what I am looking for in terms of size and texture.

    I want to test this against the Golf Pride Classic, as I am always searching to eliminate those dang 3 putts (unsuccessfully).

    Why? Because I have a strong arched putting stroke and have always gravitated towards pistol style grips. The green star appears to be the most pistol style of the three. Plus I can’t putt for the life of me right now and could use a switch-a-roo on the grip.

    Why? I love the feel of the Tour SNSR and eager to see the difference in the two. And plus with Golf Pride you cannot go wrong.

    I prefer the feel of a smaller pistol style grip. In addition to on course reviews I have a putting green in my basement where I can continue to provide updates and a detailed review regardless of weather.

    Currently looking at switching up my putter grip and this style of grip is what I am looking towards as it is close to what I have played for a long-time but slightly smaller and better shaping

    I've tried Superstroke, various Lamkin grips, etc. Thus far nothing has been ab;e to knock the Ping PP58 from my bag. Maybe the Golf Pride Pro Only will. I love the look of these.

    Flat/Square top just works for me. Still have 2 putters in the stable with the OG Pro Only. Yeah, I'm old... so what?!?!

    Tell us why you want to your selected grip: looking for something a little larger than a standard pistol grip, while maintaining a firm feel. Enjoyed the superstroke mid, but the feel wasn’t great and it didn’t last. Hope the new GP offering can beat the SS!!

    I’ve had the SS tour grip for a year now and been thinking about going back to a smaller grip for more feel and control. Would love to give this one a go.

    -I take a lot of pride in my ability to read greens and lead teammates and golf partners to the hole. I'd love to take my own putting to the next level with the added control from a larger, flat-fronted grip.

    I'd like to find a more traditional shape that is narrow on top but deeper on the sides for more surface area in my palm. I'm not enjoying the trend toward bigger grips and would love to find something like the original pro-only's that I grew up with.

    Would like to try the grip to see how the flat front helps my putts. Currently have a super stroke on there and don't care for the shape.

    Every grip in my bag is round, it only makes sense to have a round putter grip...
    every grip in my bag is golf pride except my Putter, It only makes sense to have 100% GP.

    Tested a lot of grips and Tour velvet 360(woods- adjustable setting reasons)/ tour velvet align (irons )/ tour velvet plus 4 (wedges) are my favorite and I’ve tried just about all the grips.

    I got fit for a putter and they recommend the SS GT PISTOL 1.0.. it’s a good grip performance wise, but the colors aren’t my style. These GP grips are so clean looking.
