    Does anyone know what a candy grip is? My friend uses it to hold the grip in place instead of using the tape that comes with the grip. Its like a round rubber band. I'm not sure with the spelling but she said its called candy grip. Thanks in advance.

    Yes they used to come with fleet and yehlex rackets in the UK but haven't seen them for a few years.

    I can't find any on the internet. Wonder where she bought it. I don't have the chance to talk to her in a while. Thanks.

    I never knew that's what they were called. I have no idea where do buy them separately, I only ever got them free with rackets.

    Oh. So they're just free with rackets. I did ask some shop here, they have no idea what I'm talking about. Maybe my friend did get it for free too. Better talk to her. Thank you so much. :) But I think I won't be buying them if they cost too much. It's just that my friend's grip looks so neat with the use of it.

    You may be able to buy them, I'm sure someone on BC will be able to find some but unfortunately I don't think they sell them in UK. Speak to your friend and see where she got it from. Just to double check is this a picture of what you meant? I just remembered I had an old one in the pocket of my bag, obviously it would be instead of the tape but I just put it on quickly to take the picture.
