    I think it would be awesome if members listed what grip it is (name and replacement/overgrip) with their picture..

    It can avoid a lot of, "what is this grip?" threads.. I've seen so many pictures on this forum but I have no idea what the grips are but would love to know/try them!

    elijahwong, is that a VTFZ LTD? I see that your cap is somewhat damaged up top. Does that cause your racket to make funny noises when you swing?

    Somehow, I failed to grip my grip until the top of the cone... the grip will get crumble and looks real ugly. Wonder how some of you can do it nicely... :confused:

    You have to stretch the tape once the grip gets thinner.

    My gripping style - overgrip on top of factory/replacement grip.

    Black grip = Toalson Neo Quick overgrip, White grip = Toalson Power Grip. Prefers the Power Grip more since it is more durable. Using Toalson as it offers tacky feeling. My hands are very dry hence without tacky grip, my grip tend to be very dry and no gripping power...

    I always like to grip the same way as LCW. It looks just so neat! I have a problem thou. No matter how many times I re-grip, I can't get the same "neatness" as how LCW did.What's the key to do that? He is using 50% overlap?

    here is how i grip my racket.
    start with 4 overlaps at the butt to create good grip for palm.
    finish off to the shaft without using any tape.

    thank you
    i think whats most important is to wrap it to be comfortable in your hands
    some prefer thicker some prefer thinner.
    wrap it half way and get the feel of it before the finishing
    ;)

    I'm looking for a replacement grip for my racquet. I'm not too fussy, but I do want some suggestions. My hands don't sweat much. I don't want anything dotted, bumpy, ribbed, etc. Should be soft and comfy - but not spongy. I don't want it to absorb sweat - that just makes it look and feel and smell disgusting. I'd rather wipe off the sweat if I have to. And I don't want to have to think about changing it for atleast a year.

    :p

    Please suggest!
