trying to decide which grip for new 2018 SC Newport 2 - conflicting info, so asking if anyone can help clarify:
the new SC Newport 2 comes with his standard grip which i have been told, weighs 85g. considering replacing with the SuperStroke Flatso 1.0, which is supposedly lighter at 55g(?)
although, i have also been told, replacing a SC grip immediately reduces resale value (??)
given that one would think SC grips are designed to go specifically with HIS putters, taking into account putter head weight & balance, + the shaft, leaning toward just staying with how it comes. on the other hand, read good things about the SS, but "supposedly" since they are lighter, may affect putter head & shaft performance.
so, reaching out for any comments, advice. aware it may boil down to personal preference, but logically one would think SC has considered grip construction as part & parcel, but then again, it's his brand, SS is not. in addition, have read SC grips are simply Winn grips, disguised as a "SC", and have also read where many seem to be less happy.
thx for any input.
