Superstroke grips on Scotty putters

Recommended Posts

I have several Scotty putters, GoLo S5, Select Newport, Select Fastback and black Newport 2.6 all beautiful putters and love them all. However some don't like me!! I have changed the grips on all of them but kept the old which I can put back if ever needed. The GoLo S5 with a Superstroke Tour 3.0 grip that allows me run my hands up/down the grip for long/short puts has been most consistant for me and my gamer for some time. I find the Matador grips becomes slippy and feel soggy to me in rain and have not worn very well so have been experimenting with Superstroke Pistol GT grips on them. I like how the ridge on the bottom of these grips sit in the crease of my fingers helping consistent hand positioning. However, I have struggled with getting that nice balance of a Scotty just right using the SS grips where weight, for example, the Matador Mid grip is 89g whereas the SS Pistol GT 2.0 is only 56g while the Pistol GT 1.0 is much closer at 82g (also feels better, maybe rubber like, to me). I would be very interested to hear any experiences from anyone who has experimented with SS grips on Scotty putters and what they did to get the balance "just right".

SS CounterCore weights, get a 25g then put some lead tape on the steel portion and that should get you close. That would be for the Pistol 2.0.

I have tried a Pistol 2.0 with and without 25g weight and have added lead weight today but just don't feel the balance is where I would like it. I see a lot of pros on TV using what look like SS Pistol grips on Scottys but cannot make out which models and would love to know the spec they have used.

Probably this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/114860076130?hash=item1abe31ac62:g:oXwAAOSwlOZgq72K

 

But they are also probably not trying to match the Scotty grip weight and feel, they're using what they like.

I have a Scotty Cameron 5.5 and I installed the Superstroke 1.0 counterbalance grip.  Without the counter weight I did nothing but pull putts left.  I mean every putt.  Put the 25g weights in the putter and 25g counterweight and this thing is money.  

And I used the putter for over 2 week with many putts before changing.  Im set now.  Just my experience.

I have a similar question. Just picked up a Phantom 5.5 and considering swapping the stock Pistolero Plus for a SS Pistol GT 1.0. The weight of these two grips is within a gram or two of each other. Will this be essentially an even swap? Or would you all recommend toying with the weight?

I highly, highly doubt you are that sensitive to weight so I'd just consider it an even swap.
