Thwack - New racquets launched with patented grips
Thwack is a new kid on the block. They have launched two racquets with researched patented grips. The grip structure looks quite unique. Hope their products are good too.

Pretty funky. Good luck trying to use an overgrip or replacement grip on that racket.

Even I was wondering the same. How does one apply an overgrip on it

Neat idea - is it just for practicing your grip or for improved performance during play?
I guess over grip should be wound in the same direction as the grooves twist.
BTW - how is the company name pronounced?

The complete Thwack catalogue
A quick enquiry at their website, and they sent me their product literature as well as a poster. Interesting stuff, these guys are making the whole hog from the very start. Take a look.

Interesting concept. The 'Super 5' series looks interesting (and reasonably priced too).

They seem to be sponsoring a lot of European players. Has anyone managed to play with one? I am very keen on the 'Falcon' which is the blue model in the centre.

It comes from India and by the sounds of it they didn't come through with the $$$. Mark Phelan was something of a brand manager for it in Europe and from the reply tweet also got shafted.

Just wanted to add: there is a Thwack thread already and besides possibly not coming through with sponsorship $$$ it could also be on the business end in form of the goods not getting delivered for example.

Tried dealing with this company while looking for my replacement racket. I still have not received my racket up to this day. It's close to impossible to deal with this company. I am not sure if there's anyone monitoring their mailbox.
Replies take long enough, and sometimes there's no replies at all. You have to keep emailing and emailing and hope that you get a reply..
I guess their only redemption is that they do not ask you to pay first before receiving your rackets, otherwise it's reputation is going to go to the drains.
