    Default smash grip slip

    hey everyone,

    I've been having an ongoing problem involving my grip slipping from my hand when doing a power smash. I don't think that it has to do with the actual overgrip itself, because my hand still slipped after changing the overgrip. How can I fix the problem?

    What overgrip?

    It's actually a good sign in a way, since it indicates your grip is relaxed.

    Ultimately you can thicken the grip butt, like LCW's grip.

    Sorry I meant the actual grip tape itself, I do not think the stickiness/tackiness of the grip tape applied makes a difference. My hand still slips when I do power smashes, almost as if my hand position slips all the way to the butt of the grip after the smash
    should I add extra tape to thicken the butt part of the grip?
