Putter grip choices
« on: Jan 31, 2019, 12:55:42 »
Does anyone know of an alternative to the Scotty Cameron Pistolero grip.  I really like it but the price for a new one is rediculous. Are there any aftermarket alternatives? I've got an odyssey one that is similar in shape but just not quite right.

I've tried Iguana grips (clubs and putter) and they've been fine.

Don't know if something like this is worth a punt ?

Keith - the PingMan grips are probably as close as you can get ......but they're more akin to a Pistolini than the Pistolero. I've had one ( a Pistolero ) on my Newport for over seven years though and its still going strong - they're pretty long lasting so perhaps the cost of a new replacement isn't as bad as you might think. I really like the feel and prefer the  "axe handle " profile - I've pulled it off two or three times and tried all sorts of experimental alternatives but keep going back to the same, original grip.   I've a "pulled" spare at home which I was given by a mate  ;)  as a long term replacement.....but if you know anyone who is headed over to Uncle Sam's any time soon and can get one shipped to their US Address,  they're thirty seven bucks a pop from scottycameron.com

P.S. Brilliant news re. Arabella today  :) :)

Thanks Graham - that's been some journey and I'm very glad it's coming to an end.

Funny you mention the Ping grips - I'm just looking at them now.  I totally agree with you on the way the "axe handle" feels in your left hand.  For me it's a grip that's not to thick and not too thin and really reminds me of a putter I had when I was a kid. 

From my limited google searches (and some long WRX threads) it seems there is nothing out there that has the same profile.  GolfPride don't do one either, even though they make the Pistolero.   I guess it's getting pulled and transferred.

Take a look at the Lamkin sink 11" squared grip. Similar profile and I actually prefer the feel of the Lamkin.

They don't make them anymore but plenty of stock knocking about on places like Ebay with quite a few colour choices too

These are the ultimate combo for me, love the no taper feel in the bottom hand, but the straight one's feel tiny in my left....
Have the 1.0 version on my TM Spider and it gives me the best of both worlds.
Like a fat pistolero...

Is the the Superstroke Pistol GT1.0 Scotty?

I have the Pistol GT Tour which is slightly thinner but the same profile. I was actually going to suggest that to Keith - but obviously has a larger bottom hand with no taper. I like them.

Another one that is quite close in shape is probably the Golf Pride Players Wrap - same shape(ish) as the Pistolero, but with wrap effect under the back half. Maybe not quite as big at the top. https://www.golfpride.com/grips/players-wrap/

Yup, mine's a horrible red, black and silver colour on the Spider, so getting switched for a nice monochrome version shortly....
I didn't know they did a thinner version, the GT1.0 is certainly not 'thin', so the Tour version sounds much closer to the Scotty

Gamola has been knocking out a load of the previous years superstroke grips

Also worth looking at Lamkin deep etched. Same profile as Sink squared, but wider on the flat front section
