    Hi guys,

    I love towel grip and have been using victor thick towel grip. However the grip gets really dry and not fluffy anymore... I swear a lot on my hand and hence I have to use a towel trip.

    Is there any other towel grip to recommend? Or what can be done?

    Kimony towel grip? Rkep?

    No other way except to replace the grip

    Seen a small brush that helps to unmatte the clumps on the grip before.

    Yeah that is one way. But the grip last only about 1 month. Playing thrice a week. 2-3 hours a day. Does powder help??

    Yeah exactly like a clumps! Would powder help?

    A lot of players use powder. You will have to try and see if it works for you.

    IMO, powder is essential for towel grip, the stickier, the better; resin/rosin is ideal.

    A small pet brush can be used to "reactivate" the fibres when they go flat.

    You may try those washable tower grip. It can remove easily after each play. I bought in Qoo10
