Hey, it’s another review! This time, for the Golf Pride Tour SNSR putter grip.
You might be wondering: “Why now, Justin? Why are you reviewing a grip this old”?
That’s a good question. Honestly, it’s because I used this for a full season, and I wanted to give you real information.
Speaking of that, let’s actually get real for a second. Yes, I’m going off-topic, but I promise it’s only for a little bit.
There are tons of reviews out there. Not just golf stuff- all kinds of things. I have them… hell, I have a whole category devoted to reviews!
But there are some things you need to be aware of:
One: If a product’s new, and it’s being reviewed, be wary
How in the hell are you going to get an in-depth review of something you’ve had for all of a few days? An initial impression, maybe… but a full-fledged review?
Stuff happens, many times well after the initial receiving of the product. You gotta give it some time to truly use the item to really give it a good review.
Two: Paid advertisements hidden as reviews
Truth: Some of my reviews are done with affiliate links. I have a disclaimer in the beginning of every post, plain as day. This is a CYA kind of thing (and legally required, I might add). Nearly all websites do this… but how many actually use the product?
I don’t know, and it’s beyond the scope of this post to speculate. All I can speak of is my own practice.
Take my Voice Caddy review, for example; it has affiliate links, but I actually own one. That’s why the pictures you see are of the unit I own, not stock photos. My reviews of the Inazone putter and DynaGrip gloves are unpaid reviews, but I actually own these, as well.
Same goes for the Golf Pride Tour SNSR. I’m going to use affiliate links, as a means to help keep GLG operational, but I actually own one.
OK, 300+ words is more than I wanted to spend on this, so let’s dive into the review!
Golf Pride Tour SNSR; a Green Lantern Golf Review
This is for the 140cc “pistol” model. If I had to compare, it’s as big around as the SuperStroke 2.0, but with that extra “padding” on the butt end, to give it the pistol shape.
It feels soft, and kinda squishy. Comparing it to the SS2.0 or a P2 grip, the SNSR’s not as firm. Personally, I’m not a fan of that.
Now’s as good a time as any to say that, as with any review, this is a YMMV thing. I’ll describe it as best as I can, tell you what I liked and didn’t like, but it’s ultimately up to you to decide.
Anyway, it’s obviously made of rubber, as opposed to a SS’s synthetic material. It is very tacky, so even when you’re sweating on the course you won’t feel any slippage.
Honestly, I don’t know why the hell I’m including this, but it’s something people seem to want to know about, so why not?
My benchmark would be, did I make more putts with the Golf Pride Tour SNSR? Compared to years past, no. But I didn’t make less, either. I always seem to hover around 1.9 putts-per-round, so there was no change there.
Remember: the grip itself won’t magically change how you putt. If it fits, if it’s comfortable, that’s what’s going to help increase your confidence as well as your putting performance.
This, to me, is the real moment of truth. As I said earlier, I used it for a whole season. I didn’t see any wear, not even loss of paintfill on the logo (or the markings underneath).
I cleaned it weekly, like I do my other clubs, so that definitely helps. Yeah, I get that there’s less force on a putter grip compared to, say, a grip on the driver, but come on- it still looks new!
Total Rating: 9.5
