    Default twisting grip on racquet...

    ...is it finished? I noticed it when playing in a tournament yesterday, the entire grip twists back and forth; that's the wooden part as well.

    What you mean twisting? Do you mean the handle is loose or the grip twist on contact?

    If you meant the grip is loose or worn-down, then yes, you should replace it.

    I mean that entire handle twists. The handle is made of wood and twists back and forth around the bottom of the shaft easily.

    I noticed this when I went to swing and my racquet head would turn.

    Then you need to fix/patch the handle and cone. I am not sure what the problem is, but most likely you can tape or staple the internal wood firmly to make it work.

    Then you should just buy one then

    Can a loose handle be fixed properly?

    Is it just a matter of gluing the contact point of where the shaft meets the wood through the hole at the top and then gluing the cone back to the wooden handle?

    Yeah, some handle can be easily fixed, but not all, depends on the situation.
    It would be nice to post a pic here.
