Grip report: Tecnicfibre Pro Contact ATP
I havn't found a thread about this grip, so I want to give you a short report.
I normally play with the grip: Yonex AC102EX. Basic grip + one of the AC102EX. I like it much but after 2 - 3 weeks I have to change it because the tackiness is gone completely.
Some weeks ago, I went to a sport shop and saw a few tennis and badminton rackets. Next to the rackets - the grips. There were only tennis grips but I thought "why don't to test one of these". So I picked this grip:
Tecnicfibre Pro Contact (ATP World Tour).
0,6mm thickness (as AC102EX).
The first surprise at the cash desk:
3 pieces in one pack for the prize of 8,99€.
For comparing: 3 pieces of AC102EX costs round about 4,50€.
I already found a better prize in some online shops for this but that was the prize I paid in the shop.
If have to say - the start of the wrapping was at first a bit tricky. The grip is not as stretchable as the AC102EX. I normally stretch it a lot at the beginning to reduce this small wrinkles. I didn't get it the first time, so I had a few small wrinkles at the bottom. As I read, the most of you wrap the grip that it ends with the glued, sticky end and don't need a special tape. I don't do it that way - I always use the tape. The delivered tape with the grips is really really good and have a better quality than the Yonex end tapes/strips.
Never had a better grip feeling in my hand before.
The wrinkles at the bottom were not noticeable.
It feels much softer than the AC102EX and the tackiness is pure awesome.
A little bit spongy, not hard or "flat", just soft and nice.
The control and handling with this grip is magnificent.
As I only played 4 times with this grip, I can't already say how long the tackiness will be kept, but till now, it's as tacky as at the beginning and the nice feeling is still the same.
I can tell you more about that after a few more sessions if you like to.
I hope it will last some more weeks that it's profitable compared to the AC102EX because of the prize.
This is my first grip report, I hope everything is understandable and okay.
Maybe some of you guys already played with this grip, too?
