Review: Best Grips Dinner Jacket PutterShoe and Major Leaguer Leather Grip
The cover looks great and it functions just as well. The thick fleece padding inside the cover protects the putter perfectly and the strong velcro closure keeps it on no matter what the conditions. It is a oiled suede leather so I was cautious with it in the rain, but even when it got slightly wet, it didn’t bleed or discolor. It is like a leather baseball glove, it can get wet, but still should be taken care of. I’m really impressed by the style and use of this PutterShoe.
While the company makes really cool PutterShoes, their namesake is also true, they do make the Best Grips. I’ve had a couple of their grips on my putters for the past 2 years. Their Gridiron grip is still one of my favorite grips they’ve ever made. I love the feel of a football in my hands. When they announced that they are now making a putter grip with the same leather as a baseball glove, I couldn’t wait to try it. While I might not be as big of fan of baseball as I am football, but I still remember fondly those days in Little League with that well-weathered leather glove in my hand just waiting to scoop up a grounder and throw it to first base. Those memories all came back when I installed the Major Leaguer on my Bettinardi Putter. It has that great feel just like a baseball glove; it just gets better as you break it in from use. I did get mine made up to match my Dinner Jacket PutterShoe with some blue stitchback for an amazing looking combo.
Best Grips recommends using the air installation method since an abundance of grip solvent could discolor or even damage the leathers used if you get it all over the outside of the grip. But honestly, just use air, it is really easy no matter what size compressor you have, a little puff of air and the grips slide right on and stay put. I prefer the air method for all my grips because it is easy and clean. Installing a Best Grip should be easy if you do it yourself with air or find someone else to install it, just don’t use too much solvent or too much air pressure.
Best Grips offers a great way to “Suit Up” your putter. Their Dinner Jacket PutterShoe and MajorLeaguer Grip are well worth the investment. You can take that old trusty putter and make it look like new or take that high-end putter you just bought and keep it well protected and looking sharp. Best Grips is the best option to “Suit Up” your Putter.
