Square Strike Wedge Unofficial Review

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you ever changed out the grip and if it affected your shot making?

Curious if the smaller grip size by the manufacturer was intentional because they learned it was easier to hit chip-type shots with it?!?

 

Good review...thanks for taking the time to do it.

 I did change the original grip to a larger grip (Super Stroke Slim) and it feels MUCH better now.  No doubt the smaller grip was in their (OEM) design however for me, it did not work.  Now I'm going to take the Super Stroke putter grip off.  I'm liking the SSW so much I want it to be USGA approved. I'll go with a midsize Golf Pride grip and it should be perfect for me. 

 

The SSW is a solid golf club which IMO can benefit a large section of the golfing community.  I'm happy that I took the plunge and now I wouldn't leave home without it. It's my comfort blanket for those shots around the green that use to cause extra strokes on my scorecard.

Why not go jumbo like your other grips?

I went with jumbo the first time I took the original grip off. I had length added from 35.5 to 38 inches which made it too heavy.  I bet now with the club back to 35.5 the jumbo would be the ticket!

Today I went by Dick's and picked up this grip for my Square Strike Wedge

It looks great with the green backing on the wedge and feels just right with the stock 35.5 length and the grip size that works best for me.  

 

I have really put this little club through the wringer while playing with the stock grip and length, changing the length and removing the stock grip to a super Stroke one, and then bringing the length back to stock and putting the MCC Plus 4 grip on.   Whew a hunk a hunk of changes huh? Oh well that's how you put a club through the paces and believe me, I have really put the pocket picker through a workout!  I honestly think there will be no more alterations so the club can relax in the bag without fear of surgery.  :D  

 

Once the dayuuuummmmm rain gives us a break, I'll get back out there and hit/video a few 75 yard pitches and fairway bunker shots.  I'll throw in a few greenside bunker shots too.

Happy you like your “little green friend”[emoji16]. I just don't think I would like it, but I am intrigued [emoji106]

PJ this may be pure speculation on my part but perhaps they put a smaller thinner grip on it to enhance feel

Get ya one of these, and green-out the white script and markings. ;)

 

 

Edit:  I like it I think  :unsure: ....     After some thinking about it, my artistic penmanship would mess up that grip big time.... lol

lol You got to remember Rick is an old fart and they often talk to themselves.  :D  

 

Actually after talking to a friend of mine who is a golf pro I went with the midsize with a couple extra wraps.   It balanced the weight out closer to original spec and it feels good. Win Win.

Oh man, that's harsh[emoji12]

There's nothing like being blamed for a post I didn't make. Hope that's done...
