    Default recycling grips...

    are you as cheapskate... cough... i meant environmentally conscious as me? then try recyling your grip. i used this grip for more than a year, and then while it got completely worn out, and i don't have a replacement on hand, i just unwrapped it and then re-tie it backwards. the part that used to be covered is now on top. and the worn part is now covered. now it is just as good as new..

    you can still see the old part of the grip, all disgusting colored and worn...

    We now can see where you usually grip your racket handle...

    when my friend's grip came off he temporarily replaced it with duct tape... He felt comfortable with it hence never took it off...

    it won't work for some grips... some are multilayered and reversing them would result in very undesirable properties. I have a grip in which the inner layer melts together and hardens, which makes taking it off in one piece impossible.

    yes. it is indeed my iso600.

    used it today. feels like new.

    many grips i have tried also wont' work, these grips leave very yucky residue on the grip. and will stick so much that the grip will be destroyed by the time it is removed. but some grips are very good and doesn't leave anything behind when removed.

    frictionman, yes, but you also need to take into account that the grip is wrapped in reversed..
