Don’t take our word for it, see what Golf industry pros are saying about our unique golf putter grip…
The grip is unique no matter how you look at it and a uniqueness that should be tried by all serious golfers looking to improve their putting stats. I felt a real fluidity in the backstroke taking it back as one and taking my ‘flippy’ hands out of the equation. I also saw a real difference in holding the line through the stroke as I was effortlessly using my shoulders to move the putter and my hands had decreased their tension (and/or death grip) on the putter.
The PalmBird is unlike any other putter grip I’ve used, and I’ve tried pretty much everything out there. The contour of the grip fits naturally in my palms, making it very comfortable, my putting stroke feels a lot more solid, and gives me the control I’ve struggled to find for years. Bottom line … the PalmBird Putter Grip has helped me drop strokes off my putting and that makes me one happy guy! I highly recommend trying one yourself. You won’t be disappointed, I think you’ll see real improvement in your putting with the PalmBird.
If you put The PalmBird Putter Grip ($20) in your hands, you will almost certainly think it feels odd at first. But if you’re experimenting with various ways to get your hands and wrists out of the putting stroke, it is worth a try. “You can feel the putter face stay square all the way through the ball. It takes your hands completely out of the stroke.”
The Palmbird gives more head feel throughout the stroke. The crescent shape is slight. The sides, width elongated. The Palmbird grip makes your stroke almost yip proof. It takes up so much of your palms, it is near impossible to turn it over. It is smooth rubber and tacky. It takes minimum effort to grip it. If you are struggling on the greens $20 is inexpensive to find out if you can fix it. Getting a unique feel on the greens can do nothing but benefit your stroke long term in my putting theory.
The Palmbird provided stabilizing benefits without sacrificing feel and promoted a steadier putting stroke through proper hand and wrist positioning. Three more positives: It’s easy to install, It conforms with USGA Rules and it’s made in the United States.
I was impressed with how the PalmBird changed how the putting stroke felt to me..the more I rolled putts the more used to it I became. As I continued to adapt to the different feeling, I found myself getting better with my short range putting – anything inside of 10 feet or so. While I’m not a jumbo grip user, the grip just feels natural and comfortable in my hands. I definitely recommend that people who like the benefits of an oversized putter grip look into getting a PalmBird in their hands before deciding to purchase another product.
It is a big grip and definitely changes the way the putter feels in your hands as well as how much lighter the putter felt, but adapting to it was very easy for most players. Almost all golfers felt that the grip took the hands out of the equation and made for truer strokes with the putter.
Designed and patented by PGA member Phil Jaffe, the 19-gram Palmbird oversized putter grip ($20) is made in the U.S. It promotes proper hand and wrist positioning, counterbalancing and a natural fit – all for a steadier stroke.
The skinny: One of the heaviest grips in golf, the 169-gram PALMBIRD, as the name suggests, is ideal for golfrs who want to place their palms in facing positions on both sides. The grip also is perfect for counterbalancing. Non-tapered to allow balanced grip pressure.
With the Palm Bird grip ($19.95 each), the pressure is in the palms and not the fingers and thumbs. The result is a fluid backstroke and a more effortless follow-through. In other words, the back of the palm of the left hand (for a right-handed stroke) better leads the club head toward the target. It’s worked for me the past couple of weeks. It could work for you, too.
