    What kind of replacement grips will be good for me? I don't mind changing often, but I just want something that allow me to have a good grip of my handle. Or maybe the "tying method is wrong" ? Please advise...

    Just get karakal PU. If that does not work for you, nothing does

    What is it that you find "wrong" about towel grips again?

    If Karakal Super PU doesn't get the job done then I'm afraid only towel grips will. From my experience I only need two similar racquets with towel grips that I rotate around while I wait for the sweat accumulated in the grip to evaporate.

    I used YY towel grip before and I find that I can't feel the racket... Maybe I'm too used to have a hard handle surface.

    You can try removing the original leather grip off the wooden handle and apply the towel grip straight onto the bare wooden handle. It worked perfectly for me.

    Heh - it isn't really a burden for me any more. I automatically go to the bag as soon as a game finishes and give the resin pad a few squeezes:D.

    How about having a type of "island" grip? Just measure the width of your clenched fist, which is about 3" to 4", and simply fashion a grip of this length and place it in the middle of the wooden handle. The shortened grip is like an island in no man's land. This island can be placed anywhere along the handle so that you get the most comfortable grip.
    You will find that it will be more airy and almost non-slippery.
    Try it and let us know.

    taneepak!! wah... feel so honoured to have ur reply ;)

    yes, i thought of that too. i know tt lin dan does something similar right? by the way, should i layer the wood with a PVC tape or overgrip first? i did try with a karakal PU grip, cut short about an inches before the shock cap. it felt horrible to me though. probably i would go try and give a field report soon...
