    synthetic grip is better than the towel grip because it is more durable in a sense of hygiene.
    But what are the other aspects of a synthetic grip?
    Friction,
    sweat absorbtion( moderate or high?)
    grip mass(isit true?:confused:)

    I have an unbranded grip which is quite durable in sense of hygiene.
    After like about 2 weeks, there is no pungent smell,
    However it looks quite black(sweat stains maybe) after 2 weeks.
    Is this grip good?
    Does the dark sweat stains affect the grip cushion and friction??:confused:
    When i smash,
    the grip is not so frictionalised anymore.
    It like fly through my palm a little.:confused:
    please comment!:D

    for me, even though i have EXTREMELY sweaty hands, i prefer the synthetic grip. I have tried some towel grip in the past and it is believed to be good at absorbing sweat and stay grippy, but when i sweat it kinda fly around my hands.

    Therefore, i go for synthetic grips which are very tacky + good at absorbing sweat. I find the Karakal PU super grip ideal. However, i ilke to point out that Karakal PU super grip is good but its a little thick and i think it weighs a bit.
