    i have always hated using those tapes for the finishing when wrapping my grip.
    last time i go to the hardware shop to get some double sided tape, cut a small piece and just stick it at the ending.

    done~

    ya... i do that too... very clean look

    only trick is to prestretch the last few inches of grip before taping it down at the end under much lesser tension ... this will prevent the adhesive and grip from creeping loose over time under the tension

    Use a rubber band for neat finish.

    i wonder if there's a glove out there for badminton, back in high school i've seen some guy play badminton with a batting glove. one thing tho, no one would go near that glove, pretty gross after his games.
