    I am from Taiwan and I asked my sister to look for me in the sport shop. I got red and orange but they never have white. Can you let me know where they sell it?

    Hi I can hook you up with a roll, but I have no idea what the price is going to be (probably around 30 CAD + shipping)

    Are you interested?

    White Towel Grip + Slim 10

    Sounds like a good deal to me.

    It is cheaper than buying individual towel grip.

    How much is for shipping?

    Now I can put them on my Slim 10 and look like Peter Gade.

    But I'll have to die my hair first.

    um, I am the guy Jason metioned above.

    Yes. I can give you a roll of white towel grip, for price cheaper than you thought.
    and shipping, I guess 5 dollars USD will do I guess.

    reply me to my e-mail

    takamsda@myrealbox.com

    with your shipping address.

    And maybe you need to write a cheque to my aunt (she lives in LA)
    Someone will go to LA this weekend and I'll have her ship the towel grip to you how's that?


    If you decided to get it from me, I'll send you a photo of the actual towel grip

    Sorry I don't think my aunt would take a cheque.

    Money order is the only method of payment I guess, sorry for the inconvenience

    wow, you actually dig this out.

    I don't have any on hand right now. I sold them all. And the last one was sold to BF member without paying me -_-||

    I have 4 purple, 2 red, 2 orange towel grip rolls left. If you are interested in any of them, it's 20.96 CAD + Tax + shipping. Since You are out of Canada. I'll charge you 20.00 CAD each + shipping + shipping insurance(we both don't want to lose money and reputation).

    If you are interested please send me a PM

    If anyone needs a D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) Badminton Towel Grip Kit, please PM me and I'll send you this latest kit complete with a full instruction sheet and 1 complimentary starter kit comprising of 1 big white towel, 3 rolls of double sided tape and a cutter.
    Each kit can make you at least 30 grips!
    During this promotion period, you can purchase this DIY Towel Grip Kit for just US$15 (add US$5 for shipping and handling).
    That's less than 50 cents a grip!!! Hurry! Stocks are running low! :p

    Hehe! I was just kidding... I make my white towel grips myself. :D

    I buy big white towels (cost between Singapore $4 - S$8 depending on quality and thickness), rolls of double sided tape (about 3cm width, cost me less than S$2 per roll, need about 3 rolls per towel) and a circular roller cutter.

    One big towel can get me more than 30 grips!
    That is like less than 40 Singapore cents per grip.
    The quality of these grips really depends on the type of towel you buy.
    Go experiment and have fun in the process!
