    As a girl with sensitive hands, I must use a tennis grip beucause of the cushion.:p I tried many over grips but they don't work for me. I currently use the Wilson mirco dry feel replacemnet tennis grip, but i find this grip to be too thick.
    Is there any replacement grips out there with good cushion but is not too thick?:D When you list the grips can you please list the thickness if you know it?
    Please, no over grips or towel grips. thank you!:p

    Seems to be proper badminton grips. Also try the Yonex website. They have grips too. Good luck

    Gamma Supreme Over Grip is the best grip I've used. It's tacky, has good cushion, absorbs and lasts a long time.

    I'll do a complete review of all the grips I've used one day...

    I tried different ones but have settled on the GAMMA grips now. They are awesome & i found they are much better than the Yonex overgrips.
    But I could find only white ones here in dallas......

    Malayali: buy from http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/catthumbs.html?CREF=101, it's a very good place and inexpensive. I bought locally for $4.95/pack of 3. TW sells for $2.95/pack. :)

    No offense to Yonex but compared to its peers, Yonex grips suck. :p

    They wear out WAAAAAY too fast. For example, the tacky Super Grap has a good feel to it but I will shred that grip in 1 week. The Wilson Ultra Tacky or Gamma Supreme Grip I've been using for 2+ weeks with out any damage.
