Grip: Su­perStroke Pis­tol GT Tour or Su­perStroke Slim

2.0 (Counter Core)

Toe hang: Slight

TECH: New fin­ger-shaped grips on the stain­less steel face plate are com­bined with a ther­mo­plas­tic elas­tomer feel layer to grab and in­ter­act with the cover at im­pact, lift­ing the ball into a bet­ter roll.

WE SAY: Many golfers think blade put­ters are just for arc­ing strokes, but it’s sim­ply not true any more. The #1 Wide, with its shorter but wider body, along with the sort of dou­ble bend shaft you of­ten find in mal­let put­ters, means this de­sign has much less toe hang, so is much more suited to straighter strokes. That mi­cro­hinge face in­sert feels ab­so­lutely per­fect and we all loved the new red high­lighted sight lines. We tested this model with a Su­perStroke Mid Slim 2.0 grip, which is big­ger with softer edges than the Pis­tol GT Tour, but just as nice to use.

VER­DICT: We love how models like this open up blade put­ters to a wider au­di­ence. Our testers felt the full shaft of off­set re­ally en­cour­aged get­ting the hands ahead of the ball to stroke the ball beau­ti­fully. A top all-round put­ter.
