Field clubs require tapered grips because of high swing speed (without tapered grips we’d see field clubs flying all over the golf course). But the putting stroke is slow and deliberate, so there is no need to taper a putter grip. In fact tapering is actually detrimental to precision putting and here is why: Greens are always sloped and often quite steeply. Sometimes you need to set your stance on the high side of a slope; other times on the low side. When on the high side, you need to grasp higher on the grip in order to reach the ball. When on the low side you will need to grasp lower. Only on the level will your grasp be normal, and level is rare on a golf green. When the putter grip is tapered or otherwise oddly shaped, the feel of the putter changes from one putt to another. This constant change of feel is detrimental to putting performance, and is likely the cause of the dreaded putting "yips". Old technology Ping Style Blades and Odyssey Style Mallets typically have tapered grips, and this is another way the QED Golf Putter is superior.
You will love to grip me!
Field clubs spend most of their time high and dry in the golf bag, but not the putter. It is in use most of the time and during hot humid weather its grip tends to get soggy and slippery. One golf putter is impervious to moisture; actually it could be dunked in a bucket of water and then used immediately without even drying it of. Even then its effectiveness is as good as when completely dry. Not so with many old technology blade and mallet grips that get soggy and slippery even just from sweaty hands and high humidity. This another way the QED Golf Putter is superior .
Old technology Ping style blades and Odyssey style mallets typically embody grips that are asymmetrical in cross-section; some are made with a flat side while others are made kind of like a pistol grip. The misguided thinking behind this is that this grip asymmetry might somehow help with putter alignment. Even if that was true -- and it isn't -- then how does the putter maker decide how to orient that asymmetric putter grip permanently on the shaft before you even buy it? The more you think about this, the more absurd it gets. Who would think that the putter should be put in charge of putting alignment -- that is the job of the golfer and any "help" in that regard the putter might give is actually a hinderance. Lateral Symmetry is an important feature that benefits golf putting performance, and it is another way that the QED Golf Putter is superior.
Fatigue is the enemy of performance. Quantum's comfortable tactile golf putter grip feels good and minimizes fatigue. Covered with tiny protruding knobs, it pushes gently into the skin of your hand as you grasp your putter and that enables you to have a firm hold without needing to exert excessive pressure. Old technology golf putters typically lack tactile grips; not so with the new technology symmetric QED Golf Putter, and that makes it better.
The Putter Grip is what connects you the Golfer to the Tool you use to putt the ball into the cup, so is it important? Yes of course it is! The best golf putter grip is "tactile" because it enables a good hold on the golf putter without excessive hand muscle exertion and that becomes more and more important as the day wears on. But there is more to it than that. The best golf putter grip is also impervious to moisture, symmetric both laterally and linearly. fitted, and even its color matters.
Do you know why other golf putter makers put flashy brightly colored grips on their golf putters? They want to attract your attention to their product in the putting corral of the retail store. But a gaudy putter grip out in the peace and quiet of the golf green seems oddly out of place; and most likely it also clashes with your golfing apparel. Maybe you think that has no effect on your putting performance, but it does. When you look good you feel good, and when you feel good, your putting performance is improved. You will look better on the green with a conservative basic black putter grip instead of a golf putter with a gaudy attention grabbing grip. Old technology Ping style blades and Odyssey style mallets typically have gaudy grips while Quantum's grip is elegant black = another way the QED Golf Putter is superior
Fatigue is the enemy of golf putting performance and slippery asymmetric grips are tiresome. Other golf putters embody grips that are attractive in the putting corral but tiresome out on the greens. One golf putter is clearly superior in grip evaluation -- QED.
QED Putter wins Best Grip because it is Tactile, Impervious, Fully Symmetrical, Fitted, and Black. Other golf putters fail miserably at golf putter grip evaluation.
Hands come in all sizes; ladies and youth usually smaller, and men usually vary from medium to large. A factory installed "one-size-fits-all" kind of putter grip is unlikely to fit your hand size and when it doesn't fit that is bad for your putting performance. Some even promote a oversized grip as being somehow beneficial, but using an ill-fitted grip seems ridiculous. Each Quantum Clients specifies the grip size that is most comfortable and that is as it should be. Old technology Ping style blades and Odyssey style mallets offer no such benefit, and that is another way the QED Golf Putter is best.
