    What is the disadvantage of towel grip? And if I were to buy one. Just apply over the grip or need other stuffs?

    Thanks! :)

    it smells horribly after use, plus the towel will harden up after using it for a couple of sessions.
    another disadvantage is that its not tacky like the synthetic grip.

    towel grips i find make me hold the racket not as tight as normal tacky grips, which isn't a bad thing at all i tend to get a lot of power using towel grips but they're certainly not for everyone. If you have not tried a towel grip you should no doubt. I also find their very slippery initially but once the towel gets slightly wet the grip is good.

    should try for sure ! :D

    My choice is a PU grip , karakal is my choice , these are thicker than over grips and will resist rolling up , they have adhesive back , as I have a large hand I leave original grip on , remove the film on new grip which I use to cover old grip as the new grip will tear old grip when replacing the outer one
