P2 Grips

Recommended Posts

Strictly feel I had the React Tour then switched to the Aware Tour. It just fits better in my hands. What do you play now?

I went back to my old standby Lamkin Deep Etch Full Cord. I had tried a Super Stroke Slim 1.0 as well as a much larger Super Stroke and didn't really care for them.

I would suggest the Aware Tour grip then. It's the smallest of the four. It will be bigger then your current but not huge

Very interesting looking grips, I've tried the superstrokes and did not like them, just to big and had no feel. The Aware tour looks like it could be a fit. Are these slightly over size?

Just slightly oversized. They have to be a little bigger with the design. The Aware Tour is a perfect size IMO.

I have to rescind my previous "meh" on these. I put one on my old High School golf team gamer Ping Anser. I really, really like the feel of it locking in my left hand. Its a little on the slick side for my tastes but hopefully it will tack up a little over time.

 

I have become mildly addicted to the Ping app putting handicap lately and regardless of putter or grip I always tested out as needing a more upright putter, either a blue (71*) or Green (72*), and my fit for me Edel is a 72* lie angle. Immediately after placing the P2 on the Anser my testing showed to be in the Black (70*) standard lie angle and I seemed to be getting less side spin on putts because of it. So their claims of getting more upright over putts has definitely proven true in my case.

 

I putted so well with this one today on the practice green that I am going to give it a short go in the rotation to see if it can knock the Edel out of the bag.

That's awesome to hear. Seems like they are really starting to get a lot of attention.

I really would like to try them the flap top is what I want and the shape looks like my hand would fit them better than the SS3.0

You would probably like the Classic Tour if you like a bigger grip or even the React.

Thanks for the info. I think shape might be more important than size to me. I like the looks of the Reflex shape. I think I'm going to order one for my new Cure CX2 that arrived today.

Look what came through the mail today. I have replaced a lot of putter grips over the years but I never got one that came with a ball marker and an 11 page booklet explaining the science behind it. I just installed it so I can't wait to give it bit of a workout.

Cant wait to hear how you like it. This grip has been a game changer for me.

I got to take my new Cure CX2 with P2 Reflex grip to the practice green yesterday. Both the putter and grip seemed nice, but it was a totally new feel for me so I don't know what exactly to attribute to the grip or the putter. I wish I had taken my Ping Zing 5 gamer along to side by side them.

 

The P2 grip is comfortable and I do like the shape much better than the Super Stroke grip I'd tried previously. It is a larger grip but feels more natural due to the shape.

 

It will take a few more practice sessions and some rounds to decide if this whole high MOI, oversized grip thing is for me or not.

Keep us updated as this is a route I am considering going down as well.

Well, I've taken the Cure CX2 with P2 Reflex Grip to the practice green 5 times now and I don't think this whole high MOI large grip thing is for me. I have always been a pretty good putter, I learned as a kid to grip the putter with both index fingers pointing down each side of the shaft. That method has always kept me from getting wristy in the stroke and it has worked for me. The large putter grips like my previous Super Stroke and now the P2 also keep you from get wristy in your stroke, but the oversized shape made it impossible to take my normal grip, which then made the club feel unstable to me, though it would probably work for others. That feel combined with the size and weight of the high MOI head just didn't result in more made putts for me. I pulled out my Ping Zing 5 and was making more putts and the small grip felt more natural.

 

I'm sure this combination will work well for someone, I'm just not for me. This one will be in the Classifieds soon as I'm going back to my classic Ping and blade putters.

I'm sure the Aware Tour would be much better feeling on your Zing 5. The high MOI thing isn't for everyone. I personally don't like it either.

I decided to adjust my grip with the P2, instead of having my left index finger running down the side of the grip I tried the same overlap grip that I use on all my other clubs and it felt much better. I drained 2 pressure birdy putts on the front 9 and sank 2 other pressure par putts on the back.

Yeah, maybe jumping in with both feet wasn't the best way to go. I had no real complaints with my Ping Zing 5 or Ping J Blade. Just thought I'd give all this cutting edge stuff a try.

 

I've actually amassed a small collection (5) of vintage Ping putters and putt pretty well with all of them or my 1950's and 60's blade putters. Doesn't really make a difference in my scores.

Did you have the Reflex Tour or regular Deejaid? The regular is listeed at 182 grams which is crazy high weight. That might have been some of the problem?

No I went with the Tour. Like you said the regular is 182 grams which is crazy. I think I'm just old school. I grew up in the 80's playing mismatched blades and persimmons from the 50's and 60's that my grandfather had in his barn. I still play pretty narrow soled forged irons.

 

Now, I'm no Luddite. I have a 460 cc driver with graphite shaft, and even a hybrid in my bag, but I've never seen much need for putter tech. It's putting. Children do it at mini golf courses everyday. I think many times we get caught up in tech instead of just using the simplest tool to roll the ball in the hole.

 

I did want to try the latest and greatest just to see if I was missing something. Well, I tried it and it's just not for me.
