Speed Review - Best Grips Major Leaguer putter grip

The Count is now three.  Three products from the guys over at Best grips.  My first purchase was a custom fairway shoe which to this day still gets oooooooo's and ahhhhh's on the golf course.  With the fairway shoe, to my surprise, “Zack” throws in a Gridiron grip.  The gridiron will probably get installed this spring, I am waiting on a new wedge that I ordered to put it on.  The third, a custom laser engraved Major Leaguer D putter grip which was won on the “Forum Member – Product Reviews”.

I was super stoked that I won, which was short lived when I realized that I would have to replace my beloved Pistolero grip on my SC Monterey.  After contemplating a couple days I decided to go for it:

 

 

Installation:

Without a doubt, I was going to save my SC Pistolero grip just in case I did not like the Major Leaguer.    The Install was fairly simple.  I usually reuse the tape but for this installation the tape was replaced with 2 inch masking tape.  The grip slid on fairly well.  I had to shoot a couple shots of air for the last couple of inches otherwise I ran into no problems. 

 

 

Install time including the removal of old tape:  4 Minutes

This putter went from a perfect 10 in looks to a 15!  The construction is flawless,   I absolutely love the contrast of the stitching on the leather.  The premium leather looks like what the name says “Major Leaguer”.  It presents itself as if Best grips took a baseball mitt, threw it in their magical grip making machine, and out came a golf grip.  The laser engraving is NUTZ!  Very sharp and clean lines.  The pictures serve no justice on how precise the lines are.  You have to see it in person!!!!!

 

 

 

On a side note:

The design/ordering process is first class.  You throw some ideas at best grips, and you come away with an amazing PERSONALIZED product in the end.  Your product is not put into production until YOU are happy with the final design that Best Grips emails you.

 

 

 

Performance

This is where I “thought” that I would have a major issue.  Let me start off by stating that I am a “FEEL” player.  I love to feel the club head at the top of my golf swing, and with putting, I love to feel the golf ball at impact in my putting stroke.   I do not know if it's the leather, construction, or magical fairy dust they use in the manufacturing, but the feel actually improved 10 fold.

Nice write up. I ordered one myself. I should have tho't to add some engraving. No idea why I didn't think to. Took it out once so far and actually putted better than normal which is saying something, because I hadn't been out since early November. Now every club in my bag has Bestgrips connecting my hands to them. That's saying something again because I have hundreds of new rubber gripps in the garage. Sold several sets on eBay and bought Bestgrips for myself.
