    Hello.

    I'm wondering if normal electrical tape can be used as grip tape after I finished applying my towel grip on my racket. The standard grip tape that comes with the towel grip isn't sticky enough. I'm using ASHAWAY and FLEET's towel grips.

    Thanks!

    Yes it can. Personally use electrical tape for my rackets since it's much better than the tape coming with the grips.

    The tape that comes with the grips is almost impossible to use on a towel grip. Personally, I don't use any grip tape on my towel grip, I don't really see the need.

    sure u can use electrical insulation tape as grip tape

    they r defintely beta than grip tape given

    but i prefer to use the black rubbers band over the grip tape

    the black rubber band is the same used on tennis rackets.

    my own preference only.

    haha, i used to use rubber bands once to hold my towel grip. the kind for food wrapping :D lasted quite a bit til i replaced the grip :)

    now i use electrical tape for under and grip tape, you have to wrap it around at least twice though. or else it'll just fall off when you're not using it :(
