    Have any one tried the Kimoni or Kimony grip ? We found it great and it is originally from Japan.

    I think this question shoudl go here.

    I recently bought a new arcket. but the gripsize was just too small. and now I have soemthing like a G5, wood, overgrip, very thin tape and towelgrip. (the thin tape is because when I remove the towelstuff I won't pull off half the undergrip)

    But now my racket feels a bit headlight...Any concrete thoughts?

    edit: nevermind...got it back to 293mm..

    Sotx is great: The buttcap has an extra layer above it wiht the Sotx-logo. Peal of logo, cut open butcap. romve some glue. glue the "extra layer" back on.
    It's all good now...

    Yes, Kimoni makes excellent grips. Hard to find in the U.S. though. I really like the perforated, tacky grip they have. :)

    I bought a new grip yesterday, the Karakal Traktion grip. Very expensive at £5.00 but its an excellent grip, ideal feel for me and very 'grippy' without being too tacky. Probably the best i've tried but too expensive

    So far i used the yonex dry grap which is pretty decent for absorbing sweat if your hands get sweaty easily like me lol sometimes only though. I might try out the yonex towel grip but i heard it has really bad durability and costs more.

    welcome to BC! I think I can help out here, just above the name of the poster there's a date, the post you're replying to is from 2001, so most likely he won't reply...Because I'm pretty sure reviving an 11-year-old thread is some sort of record ;)
    However I can recommend http://www.stringersworld.com/section/452/1/ashaway or direct-badminton.co.uk
