    What colour of grip and string do you guys prefer? I personally like the combination of bright yellow grip, and purplish blue string on a grey or silver racquet...

    That depends on the rackets.
    For example: I would not put a green grip on MP-100 because I don't want to see christmas tree. :)

    I prefer yellow or orange color. Sometimes light blue is an ok backup.

    when i purchase grip and string i usually go for white string and black or grey grip since i have more than 1 racket.

    Yonex string colors are not that exciting and its hard to find decent colors for BG85.

    I have black string on my Ti-10.

    But my grip is a black karakal grip with red fading, it's really cool! I'll probably post pic of it when my friend is gonna pass his camera.

    On my Forza (Lots, I like to go with the purple/lavender colour, matches my racquet, and I have red grip on that racquet. When I got my racquet restrung, they ran out of that colour so I stuck with white.. The colour scheme of this racquet is a purplish blue.. to grey, to white etc.

    On my newly acquired 2012 (red), I have white strings and yellow grip. When restrung, I'll probably change the grip to black and have black strings. Black and red look dangerous :)

    Oh no, I don't like hockey (especially I can't see the "poc" on TV, it's just too small and too fast)

    Blue? ha :D
    (Sometimes people said I look blue, and sometimes I just like blue colors:)(not always))
