i made some adjustments on my "hockey tape"method and guess what? hockey tape is not necessary!! just cut a long piece of towel, and grip in on the racket, and at the end of ur grip, put electric or hockey tape to secure teh grip like the yonex super grap. However, one thing to watch out for is that u should have a leather grip underneath the towel . For example, i have the yonex super grap (old , and beaten but doesn't matter) under my towel so that it feels soft and teh towel doesn't slip off... if there was only wood beneath the towel, the towel COULD slip off... rite now, i love my own towel grip... it's much better and cheaper than the ones i buy from yonex, and they are very easy to make... just cut a long piece of towel, and ur done!!
