COMPARE GOLF PUTTERS PUTTING | Blade? Mallet? Symmetric?
Linear Symmetry -- Linear Symmetry is symmetry of length; in other words a grip that maintains its cross-sectional symmetry for its entire length. A tapered grip for example, is not linearly symmetrical, and for good reason -- field clubs with high swing speeds would be flying all over the golf course if it not for tapered grips, But putters have very slow stroke speeds and so they do not require any tapering; in fact tapering of golf putter grips is detrimental to putting performance. Why? Because golf green always sloped one way or another and that requires you to change where you hold your grip - sometimes lower and sometimes higher, But it is important for precision putting for your grip to feel the same no matter where you hold it, and that can be achieved only with a linearly symmetric grip. Golf putters today almost always embody linearly asymmetric grips, but not the new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter; it embodies a perfectly symmetrical grip and that makes big improvement in precision putting performance.
Polar Symmetry is an absolute requirement for golf putter design (we will talk more about this HERE). Suffice it to say now that old technology golf putters embody design defective asymmetric grips and that need to be fixed because it it is symmetry that eliminates stroke wobble, impact twist, unreliable launch, and annoying impact vibration -- all major hindrances of golf putting performance. Grip asymmetry ruins overall golf putter symmetry, so that makes it a problem that needs fixing and Lateral & Linear Symmetry are the two embodiments we need to consider.
While the golf putter head does the business of putting and the shaft/grip enables its movement, the GRIP connects you to the putter. So any design defects that the grip might embody should be fixed as the first step in achieving improved putting. Six old technology golf putter grip design defects need fixing, including...
TEXTURE & ABSORBENCY + LATERAL & LINEAR SYMMETRY + FITTING + COLOR
Golfers come in all sizes and so hand size varies, some large, some medium and some small. It would seem logical that golf grips would come in various sizes too, some with larger diameter, some with average diameter, and some with smaller diameter. Old technology golf putters today, do not generally offer those options, but the new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter does, and that is another reason why it is the best.
Golf is a long and game and the enemy of good golf performance is fatigue. Because the golf putter is the most used club in your bag, putter grip slipperiness is a major contributor to golfing fatigue, and that makes it an important problem to solve. Grip Texture and Absorbency are the first two grip embodiments that need fixing.
Lateral Symmetry -- Lateral Symmetry is symmetry of cross-section. When the cross-section of the putter grip is round, the golf putter grip has perfect lateral symmetry. Old technology golf putter grips have a flat face for some unknown reason, and that ruins lateral grip symmetry which in-turn ruins overall golf putter symmetry; but it gets even worse -- some even have odd shaping (pistol grip, rectangular grip, etc,). The new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter embodies perfect laterally grip symmetry, so as to preserve overall golf putter polar symmetry.
Golfers today have a choice of hundreds (maybe even thousands) of golf putters on the market today, but it really boils down to Ping Anser Style Blades, or Odyssey Style Mallets, or now the new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter. When comparing golf putter grips, there are six factors to evaluate. The new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter scores perfect six of six, while typical blades and mallets score a miserable zero of six. Of course, grip evaluation is only one part of overall golf putter evaluation, but without a good grip nothing else matters much.
Ever wonder why golf putter grips are so gaudy and colorful? The reason is that putter makers want their product to attract attention in the retail store's putting corral. Of course color has no effect on how well a golf putter works, but it does matter some for your golf putting performance, How? When you walk onto the green with a putter that is colorful and gaudy like what a clown might like to use, it can effect your self-esteem and confidence. Don't laugh! This is the reason why you drive your wife's black BMW to the golf course instead of your old white F-150. The new Quantum Golf Putter grip is basic black and that is best for your self-esteem, your conficence, and therefore your putting performance.
Texture -- Most golf putter grips today are too smooth, and that requires excessive hand=hold pressure which over the long haul contributes unnecessarily to fatigue. The new Quantum Golf Putter embodies a "tactile" grip which cures this problem. It features tiny knobs that protrude outward into the skin of your hands and that enables you to have a firm hold on the grip with no excessive exertion, and that significantly reduces fatigue over the long haul. .
Absorbency -- Many golf putter grips will absorb moisture and become slippery on hot humid conditions especially during misty mornings and rainy days. This is a major contributor to golfing fatigue. The new technology Quantum Symmetric Golf Putter embodies a tactile grip that is "impervious" to moisture, so it feels just as secure in your hands whether dry as a bone or sopping wet, and that significantly reduces fatigue over the long haul.
