    I just ordered a reel of towelgrip by ashaway, I have the black one...
    But it's awesome! My karakal rackets are roughly a G4 (bit thicker compared to yonex), so normal towelgrip makes the grip way to big. So I was very impressed with ashaway's paper thin towelgrip.

    I saw an english shop list 9 different colours and I just ordered a standard "box of 24" with 8 colours, so I have to ask; does anybody know which colours?
    Also, is there a difference in thickness between the colours? My experience with the indonesian-type towelgrip is a pretty big difference in thickness...

    The one that Stringerworld sells? I heard that one was quite thin, have been looking for that for quite some time now. Could you perhaps post a picture of the grip applied on your racket?

    yeah, I got a reel from stringersworld. The black one is almost see-through when you're wrapping it

    I recommend the yellow one. It's just about as thin as the black but feels fluffier. On the other hand I find the red one's the thickest of the colours.

    The good thing I find about them is that they're pretty cheap per pack where I can buy them and are thus dispensable.

    They leave a nice towel finish on your hand too, which gets transferred to the opponents hand during the customary handshake.....lol

    Just got my reel and I am really surprised by the thickness, it's so thin. Another nice feature is that the whole of the grip is sticky underneath and not just the middle as with some other towelgrips. Seems real nice to mee, will be playing tomorrow.
