    I have really sweaty hands when i play, and currently use a conventional grip, having tried various 'Super absorbent' type grips with special materials, but I find these all go the same way, so have gone back to a standard grip. Anyone got any suggestions?

    I'm a heavy dripper... I use the prince deraperf if I can get it, or duratread as a back up.


    I also found that when it's really hot and muggy to use the narrow wrist band ( or a head band warpped twice) to keep the sweat off my grip.

    Thanks for the suggestion mate. Can't seem to find those in the UK though on the web unfortunately. Will maybe try my local shop or wait for other suggestions.

    if u guys really have serious problems with sweaty palms, u might consider going for surgery. my friend went for one such thing where his vein was burnt and now his 2 arms cant perspire ( from palm up to arm pit). in the past he comlained of slipping off pull-up bars, etc. but tts all history now.

    I had no idea that was possible :eek:. If I happen to do that on my hand, are there going to be any problems if my hands get too dry? Around how much did it cost?

    i dont think there are much problems involved because my friend didnt complain of any. however, since u cant perspire through your hands so it means that ur hands might contain more heat than usual, my friend said that he has gotten used to it. im not sure how much it costs, but u should consult a doctor first and seek his opinion before u decide on doing anything like this.

    dont think so. the process involves burning the vein in your arm which produces sweat.
