    Hi, I was wondering how you should wrap a towel grip so that is kinda has a bulge at the end of the racquet. Something like the pro's racquet's. Usually I wrap my racquets normally so there isn't a bulge, but I find that I sometimes slip a bit while player.
    Thanks.

    To me, the normal way of wrapping is ok. But, u can cover the butt of the racket and wrap up to get the bulge.

    the bugle isn't from towelgrip, most of the time.

    I just use some athletes tape, wrap some half/quarter-inch thick lines around the buttend..just experiment with how to do it.
    Some wrap on used overgrip...

    It looks... a bit weird if you ask me...

    With athletes tape (thin strokes) it looks much better;)
    here with an overgrip, but it work with towelgrip just as well

    I have taken some pics, and hope it helps.
    1) u hold the towel grip diagonally across the butt of the racket.
    2) Then u start to wrap up, the racket.

    Its that easy.:)
    *The grip at the butt looks abit distorted as i pulled out the grip and regrip to take the pictures, if you use a new grip, it will look like the first pic that i just post. Just nice.

    By the way, thats my ti10 with micropower .66 strings:D:D

    I do not do it that way. It is of any advantage to me. But since a BC member asked, i just grip my racket that way to show him.:D:D:D. Hope it helps.
