Tour Edge Golf has gotten into the putter grip game, launching their SphereTac oversized grip with the promise of unique levels of tackiness for more control over the stroke and confidence gripping the putter.
The SphereTac grip utilizes a thermal plastic created through a process called Thermal Plastic Suspension Polymerization (TPSP). The process mixes an undisclosed monomer with a special liquid, mechanically agitating the monomer to polymerize and form into spheres as a polymer. These polymer spheres take the shape of white dots, which sit on a black thermal plastic base on the grip.
The end result is a 52-gram sticky grip that holds up in the weather conditions golfers face without losing their feel. Tour Edge president David Glod compares the material to what's found in wide-receiver gloves.
The oversized nature of the grip is designed to prevent a golfer's putting action from getting too wristy, while minimizing grip pressure and head rotation.
The SphereTac grip debuted as part of Tour Edge’s PureFeel Template putter series. The reaction and demand to the grip led Tour Edge to release the grip individually separate from the putter.
Tour Edge is now selling the SphereTac grips for $20 each on their website.
