Claw grip users, what grip is on your putter?

MattM97MattM97 Members Posts: 569 ✭✭✭✭✭

Recently it was suggested that I move back to claw grip based on a few things, I've used the claw grip in the past so I'll transition back to it pretty fast. A few grips I have are just not comfortable or compatible for the claw grip so I need to order a few and change up my putters. I'm thinking of going to the Flat Cat and install it Justin Rose style, but I want to see what everyone else is using.

So claw grippers what grip do you have on your putter?

    For me, it's the classic Ping AVS mid-size - but any mid-size pistol grip will do the job for me.
    Tried the larger diameter grips but they just never felt comfortable.

    I've been using a claw grip since 2003 and have always used standard sized putter grips - could never get the grip to feel right with mid/oversized models.

    This is what I'm currently using and I've used essentially this same model grip going back to the original Odyssey 2-Ball (the putter I was using when I went to a claw grip):

    Cobra KING F9 Speedback (9*)
    Cobra KING F8+ (4-5, 16.5*)
    Cobra KING Forged Tour (3-GW)
    Cobra KING WideLow (56*)
    Cobra KING Pur WideLow (60*)
    Odyssey O-Works Jailbird Mini

    So seems Claw is like any other grip in terms of preference. I do have the Garsen Max which is probably the worst for Claw grip with the taper.

    Superstroke has that claw specific grip, saw it at GT when I went in to get a flatso.

    Good looking grip. What putter is that on?

    I have it in the Black and Silver color on my PXG Gunboat H, looks really good on there.

    Are you playing an armlock set up or just have a 17" grip on a regular putter?

    I'm actually playing the JumboMaxx Mid-Jumbo on my gamer but it may not be saved after a few changes are made to my putter. That's why I'm asking in case I need to find a new grip.

    The stock SC grip that came on my Newport 3 works fine for me.

    Not doing the arm lock, just the standard claw grip.

    Interesting so a 17" grip on a regular length putter. Must get some odd looks when using it but if it works it works.

    Yeh it had a 15" Ping CB60 counter weighted grip on it when I bought it but I putted so good I wasn't going to change it. It also felt very balanced so I wanted the same weight on the grip end ( 130 grams ). Anyway when I put the Jumbomax on there I put a 3" extension in the shaft before putting the grip on. I'll take a pic tonight and post tomorrow if you want.

    I have the superstroke claw grip on my putter now and the putter I had before. Before the claw grip came out, I was using the flatso 2.0 on all my putters. Either of those grips feel good to me with how I claw/grip the putter.

    That's not as bad as I thought honestly. I think the pics on the Jumbo Max site make the 17" grips look like they're driver shafts in terms of length.

    Maybe I'll order one I do like the feel and weight of their putter grips.
