Ok so you need a new grip for your putter. Lots of options out there. To help write this article we decided to narrow the comparison to two putter grips that have a similar style. We of course speak of the pistol grip style which has a flatter front and a larger portion of the grip at the back so you can get a better handle on it. There are two putter grips under $20 that caught our eye. One by Champkey and another by Golf Pride. Let's dive into the comparison.
Below is an example of the Tour Putter Grip by Golf Pride. Apologies for it being so small. Not exactly the best picture on Amazon for it. It is currently on there for $18.76. It has a 4.5 star score on over 450 ratings.
Then you have below and example of the Champkey USA Pistol Putter Grip. It's on Amazon for $15.99 and it has a 4.8 star score on over 1200 ratings.
On face it looks like Champkey has an edge on several aspects, including price, score, and amount of ratings. So what's the catch? We'll we have heard through the grapevine that Champkey is a knock off of Golf Pride. So is that a bad thing? We'll let's run it through Chat GPT to see what they think and see if we have missed anything. We made the question more generic about the comparison of brands instead of the putting grips specifically. Let's see what we got...
"Champkey and Golf Pride are both popular golf grip brands, and which one is better will depend on your personal preference and playing style.
Golf Pride has been a leading brand in the golf industry for many years and is known for its high-quality and durable grips. They offer a wide range of grip styles and materials, including rubber, cord, and hybrid options. Many professional golfers use Golf Pride grips, and they have a reputation for being one of the best in the industry.
Champkey is a newer brand that has gained popularity for its affordable prices and quality grips. They offer a range of grip styles and materials, including rubber, cord, and synthetic options. While they may not have the same reputation as Golf Pride, they offer a good balance between affordability and quality.
Ultimately, the choice between Champkey and Golf Pride will depend on your personal preferences, budget, and playing style. It's a good idea to try out different grip styles and brands to see which one feels best for you."
Ok so Chat GPT seems to be ok with Champkey. It does admit that it is newer and does not have the reputation of Golf Pride. That said, there is plenty of evidence that Champkey is a solid brand and if you want to go for it, it looks like it would not be that bad of a purchase at all.
