Cameron Grips Question

Scotty Cameron Junkies of the World, I need you!
Hey guys, I've got a question regarding Cameron putter grips...

I used to play a Scotty Pro Platinum Newport 2. The putter came with a stock black corded grip, that I believe had a white crown on it. Unfortunately, the putter was stolen last season. As I couldn't put without a Cameron, I decided to get a Studio Style this year. I grabbed a Newport 2. Thankfully, I'm back to my old putting ways, but the grip seems to be a different size. It's the red "dancing cameron" grip without any texture.

Basically, my question is: Was the pro platinum grip a larger diameter or differently shaped grip than what comes on the studio style? If so, does cameron make something in that old size? I didn't particularly care for the corded grip on the platinum, I just like the size/shape. I think I'd like the "Baby T" grips that I've seen, but I'm not sure about the size/shape of that either.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Yes the old cord grip is thicker the the dancing Cameron grip. The Baby T grips are probably closer in size to the cord grip but in my opinion a little thicker in the lower part then the cords.

 

What I've done to try and replicate the thickness in the dancing letter grip is put three extra wraps of tape underneath to bring it closer to the cord size.

Baby T's are standard on Futura and Red X putters so you should be able to get an idea of what they feel like before ordering them. You can get the Cameron Cord grips from the restoration shop, so any Titleist dealer should be able to order it for you.

I love the Baby T and put them on all my gamer scotties. Go into your local Golf Galaxy they have boxes of them(at least the two near my house do) which means they all should.

Awesome, thats great info, thanks a bunch. I know a few places that carry those in my area. Let's just hope that I don't get tempted into buying one when I test it out in the store.

Interesting thread here. My personal opinion on the Cameron cord putter grip is that it is the WORST feeling grip they make. The Scotty is all about the feel of the ball rolling off the face of your putter, and for me the cord grip seemed to 'deaden' that feel quite dramatically.

 

For me the scotty Winn grips transmit the feel back through the hands better than anything else they put on. An extra layer of tape should help the thickness issue, without compromising the softness of the grip too much.

I'm With Simon I replaced my Baby T with a winn grip. I'm trying to get our rep to get me an Orange Custom shop Grip for my Futura. I just wish he'd do some kind of custom cover for the futura putters

As I mentioned above, I wasn't crazy about the feel of the corded grip... its the shape that I'm after. I want something softer and more responsive, which is why I was eyeing the Baby T grips. With this current grip, my left hand just feels a little empty.

 

Thanks again for the comments. I plan to hit Carls Golfland tomorrow to check out a RedX and see if the grip feels right.

The other grip worth a look is ther Iomic. It is a nice large grip with great feel, and good wet weather properties, it also wears well. It suffers from being difficult to find, expensive and is not branded as Titleist or Scotty. But for the feel you want on a gamer, this may well be your best bet.

 

(There is an ebay seller 'Yelnats' whom I have dealt with succesfully before who sells them, Orange and red look great on Scotty's) :friends:

What does everyone think about the Golf Pride New Decade putter grip? I just put it on (red) and I love it. Has a great compromise between the feel of a Dancing Cameron, and size of a Baby T, similar to the cord/nocord. Does anyone use this grip and have any comparisons to the Scotty grips?

I've tried it specifically for the reason to find something thicker then the Dancing Cameron but not corded. I found the pistol butt end a little too much for me. I ended up taking a file to it and shaving it down for more comfort.
