  1. Official Forum Member Review Golf Pride Tour SNSR Putter Grip Golf Pride's new SNSR putter grips are one of the more interesting and innovative grips introduced in the past year. They seem to have pulled off an interesting trick - soft yet firm at the same time. Do they perform? Can the SNSR help make you a better putter and hole more putts? We have 3 Forum Members testing these babies out and they're ready to share their thoughts with you here.

  2. Sifting through the notes and pictures from the PGA show and wanted to share the story on the new Golf Pride SNSR Grips.... Met with Bruce Miller, Golf Pride's Retail Products Manager, and he shared the following tidbits. First, Golf Pride doesn't pay anyone to play their grips, but it remains the #1 grip in golf, and by a pretty wide margin. These guys can get any grip they want and the fact they choose Golf Pride is a source of, well, pride.... Did not know this -- Golf Pride is far and away the #1 putter grip on Tour, as well. That primarily due to their OEM business, but they say when it comes to putter grips, no one else is even close - they have more putter grips on Tour than #'s 2 and 3 combined. Which brings us to the SNSR. Bruce said the most important part of a putter grip is feel - it has to feel good in your hands if it's to perform. They can enhance feel two ways, with material and with shape. The new type of rubber compound in the SNSR is 40% softer than the material GP has been using in their standard putter grips. It's kind of interesting - despite being so soft, it actually discourages you from gripping the putter too tightly. It actually "springs back," so you won't be choking the grip to death over a 4-footer to halve the hole. The Red SNSR is a pistol countered grip - it has a wide paddle to rust your thumbs on, which should help alignment, as well as nicely beveled edges for comfort. The Blue SNSR is a straight profile from top to bottom. Both are available in 104 CC and 140 CC. I was planning on liking the Straight blue model more, but after trying both I did find the contoured model more to my liking. The pistol, combined with the beveled edges and wide front paddle seemed to fit in my hands nicely. Just goes to show, preconceived notions are easy to cling to, but they can often be wrong. Golf Pride says roughly 75% of the Tour uses the traditional contoured and tapered pistol-type grip. The SNSR grips are just the beginning - Golf Pride figures these will fit into the middle of the bell curve for grip styles, and they are planning on more and different styles in the future. Both 140 CC models weight in at 124 grams, the 104's are both 90 grams. Both have a .580 core size. SNRS will hit the stores April and will price out at $25 each.
