    * Yonex Wave Grap (Dinkalot sent me some - it's my favourite, but I haven't been able to find it in the UK)
    * Carlton Aerogear Ribbed (hard-wearing, but not very tacky)
    * Karakal Ripple Grip (haven't tried it)
    * Fleet Nano Super Ribbed (haven't tried it)

    i've tried the yonex ones and the black knight ones
    they're both pretty bad...
    haha
    what i do is double up on a thin strip of the karakal pu super grip to give it some texture
    this, however, creates more bulk and it's heavier (changes bp)

    There is a trick way, if you take a real soft grip and slightly overlap, you'll create the waves, and it's nice because you can control the size and thickness of each wave.

    Toaslon Volcanic - a grip with a thin strip of rigid foam running through the middle. Can be had from W&D. No tack to speak of (bad for me), but you're not gonna let go of the racket!

    karakal ripple grip= the best ! My favourite ribbed/ripple grip, outstanding durability, performance sweat absorbsion, highly recomend it. I did a review on it somewhere, it will probaly be on page 2 or 3 of the grip section
