    Default Is it ok if I remove the plastic wrapping of the grip?

    Hello everyone! So I got this Yonex racquet well it the grip of course, it has a plastic wrapping I want to remove it. But when I remove a small portion of the wrapping I saw some parts of my grip is fading then when I touched it it sticked at my hand! Is it normal if the grip of my Yonex racquet is really like this?

    I think most of the rackets come with plastic wrapping the grip. I remove it as it's slippery if used to play. Some just leave it as it is because they use another grip to wrap the handle. the plastic protects the inner grip so it doesn't become sticky when they want to replace the overgrip.

    Racquet sat out in the wild too long, original grip disintegrated inside. Just remove all of it and get a replacement grip like the AC420EX or Karakal PU Super Grip.

    Or you can wrap a overgrip on top of the plastic. It works either way but not sure what you like or how thick you'd like it.

    Thank you Esppy! I Already bought a grip fromblack knight. It looks like a wave grip and thank you! It really is disintegrated because the seller told me it's their best selling racquet yet the final stock! It was in the store for more than 3 months!

    If the racket was stored in a cold room, the rubber grips will degrade pretty fast, I see it all the time with clients I do regrips for.

    Yeah sure, as I said, just remove the original "leather" grip and just use a replacement grip or towel or overgrip, really.

    What a question...

    Do you leave the plastic on your mobile phone or your TV?
    Du you leave the paper inside your new shoes? Or even in the box?

    I would remove it and get rid of the degraded grip, fit a nice new grip. Also another tip, if you want to use another grip on top, the plastic that protects grips when they are bought can be used over the normal grip first, then the second grip can be applied. This makes it easier to take the second grip off without sticking to the first.

    Kindest regards,
