    works best with towel grip. makes the towel grip feel more dry and 'grippy'.

    other powders would work as well, like baby powder, tapioca flour, potato flour etc :)

    I have also heard people use climbing chalk (magnesium carbonate).

    grip powder is still better than chalk, at least for me.
    it has kept my hands drier than chalk, the feeling of chalk mixed with perspiration is not a very nice feel.
    anyone has the same feeling?
    btw, i m literally soaked after 1 game n nd to change shirts; normally, ard 3-4 shirts.
    combined with wristband, both have kept my racket on my hand instead of flyin all over the plc.
