Grip for 375g Piretti putter?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've recently bought a Piretti Cottonwood 2 putter.

 

I really love the putter, but I dislike the grip it came with. I've never previously played with a fat grip and it's really not for me.

 

The grip is a Winn Medalist Jumbo Pistol.

 

https://www.google.c...G6Q-7PzRj9NXSM:

 

I went to get the grip changed in my local pro shop, but I was told by the pro that there's probably a fat grip on it to counter the weight of the heavy putter head. He advised me to keep the grip that I currently have.

 

Spieth's Scotty Cameron 009 weighs 350g and he uses the skinniest Superstroke Flatso grip (the 1.0). Is there a big difference in 25g and would this grip work for me?

 

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Yes, 25 grams is a bit a weight, it means 12.5 swingweights difference. But there are so many factors. Like Spieths grip weight.

 

Looks like from what I see the Wynn grip is about 125g. You can always get the SS Flatso 1.0 in countercore and buy the 75g weight. That would match the 125g of the Wynn grip. And thus provide similar counter balance.

The Winn midsize pistol is somewhere between 75 and 78 grams. May be a good option

this. You need about 85 grams with that head. A super stroke 1.0 gtr is 85. Pure midsize also is around 95.

Could you find a standard sized counterbalanced grip you like?

Just insert the counterbalance plug and use your favorite putter grip. And it’s only $6

Thanks for the tips guys. Good point Orlandogolfguru, I wonder if there is an official minimum grip weight for a putter weighing 375g.

 

The Flatso Countercore 1.0 would get me up to 100 grams. Would be interested to know if that's enough weight in the grip for a 375g putter? Also does the thickness of the grip matter at all, or is it only about the weight of the grip?

The flatso 1.0 is 50g. You can buy a 75g weight separately

Do you want it to be counterbalanced? I use a Matera as well but with the standard iomic grip on it. The heavier head works well for a consistent tempo pendulum type stroke- same length back and through.

Spieth uses an accelerating stroke- forward press, short back, longer and quicker through; in which case you would want a lighter feeling head.

So it really depends on your stroke. I'd say sense you like the putter just put on whatever grip you prefer and try it out.

Did they not suggest any smaller grips with same weight?

not that cameron is the all knowing, but he has some dollars backing r and d with plenty of beta testing. He started using the 85 gram grips on 360-370g putters to align the SW more pendulum like, and not head heavy. Based on that and what I’ve used that feels good (to me), I’d use something around 85-95. I have a 365g Piretti with 85 grams and his perfect. Size doesn’t matter (lol) that’s all feel. Try a midsize pure they are 95-100 or the SS. Good luck!

My grindworks putter head weights 380g and I play it with their stock midsize grip that weights 88g. It's a great setup. But part of it is also the shaft and its weight distribution / balance. I play it with a heavier shaft (134g at 36") which has a balance point at 53,6% from the tip to butt when uncut.

Do you know the shaft specs of your Piretti putter?

Unfortunately the shop didn't advise smaller grips with the same weight. In fact after some investigation it turns out that Winn Pistol Lite grip currently on the putter, despite being a fat grip, only weighs 65g!

The impression I'm getting from others on this thread is that for a 375g putter head you need at least a 85g on the grip.

 

Similar to what Orlandogolfguru mentioned something around 85-95g would be ideal. The Superstroke Flatso 1.0 with countercore grip is 50g and comes with an extra 50g weight which would take me up to 100g.

I'm in the UK so it's not so easy to get hold of a 25g weight which would bring me up to 75g total. Do other weights work with the Superstroke grips I wonder?

 

I'm afraid I don't have more information on the putter shaft.

You should be able to make something like the tourlock work. Heck people have used clevis pins. So there should be a number of options to backweight the grip.

If you know the weight you can put a plastic cylinder filled with lead or tungsten powder in the shaft's butt end. Something like this: https://www.golfworks.com/shaft-butt-weight-ports/p/BWP/ But if you want to change it later you have to remove the grip first. Tour Lock Pro Weights are installed after the grip installation and easily interchangeable.
