    Me synthetic grip all the way.
    tried last time towel grip, it's kind a slippery. One time my rackets flew away because of this towel grip, since then no towel grip. May be just couldn't get the right one.

    does anybody know "kimoni" synthetic grip?
    it's very tacky.

    Towel grips require sweat to have friction. When top players sweat profusely with sweat dripping down their body and hands, towel grips are useful and synthetic grips don't work so well. But towel grips that have seen too much sweat over time become useless and need to be replaced.

    Hey guys just want to share.
    I found synthetic grip that better than kimoni in term of longer lasting.
    you guys who like synthetic grip may try Prince over grip. It packed 3 grips in a box.

    this over grip is not as sticky as kimony but last longer than kimoni.
    Value for money. here I buy around us$6.

    I started with towel grip, then switched to synthetic grip. At one point synthetic grip gave me blisters, so I switched back to towel grip until now.

    Once I reach home after my weekly game, I store my racket in a cupboard with chemical dehumidifier (Thirsty Hippo, etc) inside. The grip doesn't smell (at least it doesn't have the yucky smell of sweat ).
