These are the hottest grips on the PGA Tours and growing rapidly every week in their usage. If you have not tried these grips, do yourself a favour and watch your putting improve.
The non-taper technology increases consistency and lower scores by allowing even pressure in both hands thereby eliminating added tension in the wrist and forearms. This in turn helps the arms to swing free, further enhancing a pendulum putting stroke. The split colour graphics are designed to ensure repeatable hand placement for more consistent putting.
SuperStroke grips are trusted by hundreds of top professional golfers. So far in 2023, SuperStroke users have won 38 tournaments on golf’s major professional tours, totalling more than $27 million in first-place prize money in those events.
Team SuperStroke is pumped for the upcoming Ryder Cup matches and is getting golfers into the spirit of the biennial event with limited-edition Team USA and Team Europe putter grips in all of its most popular and Tour-proven grip models (including the sought-after 17” 3.0 used by the reigning U.S. Open champion).

SuperStroke has introduced its new Zenergy line of putter grips that offer a lot of options, shapes, and sizes to accommodate just about any player.
SuperStroke’s new line of putter grips features enhanced Spyne technology, new multi-zone texturing, and patented no-taper shapes to help with confidence and quiet your hands. The new Spyne™ Technology has an improved embossed ridge along the underside of the grip, engineered to make it easier to square the face at impact, while the new multi-zone texturing is strategically placed in high-sensory areas designed to optimize feedback and comfort from the soft polyurethane outer layer.
The patented No Taper Technology minimizes grip pressure with an advanced parallel design that enables golfers to quiet their hands and add consistency to their strokes.
The Tech-Port located at the top of SuperStroke grips allows golfers to easily add game-improvement options including the patented CounterCore weight system and performance tracking sensors. The CounterCore can be crucial in fitting for the most advantageous weighting of the putter for optimal performance.
Of the new Zenergy models, the Pistol series is a modern take on a beloved classic.
These putter grips merge a pistol-style top section that helps golfers lock in their upper hand position with “No Taper Technology” to help golfers maintain even grip pressure and boost the consistency of their stroke.
The CounterCore weight is not included with this grip but may be added separately. It comes in 7 colours and 3 sizes. The Pistol grip is one of the most popular. PGA Tour star Rory McIlroy just had a specially made “Rors” Zenergy Pistol Tour grip installed on his mallet putter.
The SuperStroke Flatso™ putter grip features a distinct pentagonal “Flatso” profile: a wide, flat front grip shape with five pronounced edges. Now with the addition of Enhanced Spyne™ Technology and Multi-Zone Texturing, the Flatso™ Series has been refined to offer an even better feel and feedback. It is one of the most popular grips played on professional tours. PGA Tour professional Jordan Spieth trusted the Flatso™ grip for each of his three major championship victories.
A CounterCore weight can be added. This putter also comes in the Flatso™ 17-inch model as an extended version that meets the needs of golfers who prefer mid-length putters. It works well with its distinct pentagonal profile and is a smart choice for golfers who position the putter grip against their lead forearm, offering increased stability from its 17-inch length and wide-front design. These putters also come in 6 colours and 3 sizes.
The XL+Plus™ Zenergy Series grips measure 13.75 inches, which is 3.25 inches longer than the standard length. The XL+Plus™ extra length makes them a great fit for golfers who use mid-length putters or want a little extra counterbalance. They are available in three models.
The SS2R Squared has a unique one-inch square profile for players who prefer opposing hand placement. Heavier than most SuperStroke putter grips at 109 grams, the SS2R Squared provides additional back-weighting and pairs well with heavier putter heads. A CounterCore weight is not included with the grip--but may be added separately.
In 2022, SuperStroke users won 61 tournaments on golf’s major professional tours, totalling more than $58.5 million in first-place prize money in those events. The company uses feedback from more than 450 tour pros in its designs and innovations.
With these and the many other new models of Zenergy grips that SuperStroke has introduced, it’s well worth taking some time and visiting your local club fitter or retail dealer to find one that feels just right.
Prices per grip range from $29.99 to $34.99
