    ex. what's that white grip gong ruina uses?

    ex #2. what's the most popular grip among the pros?

    etc. thx, i just wanted know... if i can't copy their raquets (too expensive...:( ), mind as well follow their traditional grips!:D

    Yonex! Can't you see that they wear Yonex clothes! Can't you see that they use Yonex racquets! Can't you see that they wear Yonex shoes! Can't you see that they use Yonex bags!

    And for grips, of course, are YONEX!!!:D

    ps.


    plz don't post any remarks like ' don't copy the pros, use the ones that suit u' or that stuff. i do believe i should use ones i like, but i 've come across several grips and i can't really find the one that suits me, so i need some inspiration. thx:)

    There are some that use towel grips, seen a couple from some vids. Also some have those bright ass grips/wraps.

    Hmmm... u really know what some of us going to say, right? ;)

    Anyway, why not ask this question to the local store owners for suggestion, or fellow club members. Try their racket, etc. Some ppl have dry hand, some have sweat ones, some prefer the feeling, some prefer the thickness (or thinness), or tackiness, etc.

    It's very hard to come up with "the one solution". Also, do a search, I believe even some sticky threads talking about this issue.
