    Question Grip - Is it a Must?

    Guys.. soryy if this question sounds silly.. but I just wonder is it a must to aplly a grip to the racket....

    If yes.. then why does the racket comes with different grips sizes? ( G3/G4//G5)
    One can always buy a grip and stick it to the racket according to his/her personal preferance rite?

    Add another layer of ovgrip / towel grip is more like perference. It serves mult purpose:

    1. Change grip size: In various regions, not all grip size could be found. Therefore, add/replace with grips can change (increase or decrease) the grip size.

    2. Shift balance point: Make the center mass more toward handle.

    3. Protect original grip/handle: Overgrip and towel grip generally absorb sweat better than the original leather grip.

    4. Increase tacky feeling

    As long as you feel comfortable, it should be ok. It's like adding on a jacket on top of the T-shirt u r wearing, whether the T-shirt is brand new or not, should not effect the result.
