    Default Cheap alternative for yonex grip powder

    Hi, FYI.. if you want a cheaper alternative to powder grip look for Teknik Chunky Yeti Chalk. Or any other powder that's made with pure magnesium carbonate. I find that the drying agents they add to some of the other brands leave a weird feeling. The yeti chalk is relatively inexpensive as well. You get a pail of about 250grams for $10CDN while the yonex powder grip is ~$15CDN and come with 25 grams or so. I just have a small container and fill it up. and store the pail in a dry place. You can find this chalk at the rock climbing places. Mountain Coop for example. It also doesn't leave your hand crusty after playing. I play about 2-3 hours a session 5 days a week. It's the same stuff as weight lifters and gymnastics people use.

    I'd just thought I'd share.. Thanks for your time.

    Yeeup it sure is! The ones with added agents doesn't work as well. IMO

    I actually use a lot.. Like I refill it in a smaller container.. But the small container is larger than the YONEX pwoder grip and I barely scratched the surface.. Unless you're making kilograms of this for the same price. I don't see why not just buy the Teknik Chunky Yeti Chalk. It's 8 dollars CDN..
