questions, what do you use to tape the end part of your towel grip? Like the tape thingie on the cone, what tape do you guys use?
Also, can someone tell me the dimensions of a grip from cap to cone? I don't wanna cover the cone, but rather to the beginning part of the cone like the yonex factory grips. Can someone give me the dimensions of that?

Excellent Idea!Originally Posted by New_Guy04
New_Guy04 has an excellent idea, if double sided tape is unavailable.
Now I can save a lot of money on xpensive grips!

The best thing to use to tape the end part of the grip is the black electrical tape, that you can buy at any local hardware store. It is also stretchy, like the tape that comes with a store bought grip.
The dimensions from cap to cone are different for most rackets. Just wrap the grip and cut it with scissors.

i made some adjustments on my "hockey tape"method and guess what? hockey tape is not necessary!! just cut a long piece of towel, and grip in on the racket, and at the end of ur grip, put electric or hockey tape to secure teh grip like the yonex super grap. However, one thing to watch out for is that u should have a leather grip underneath the towel . For example, i have the yonex super grap (old , and beaten but doesn't matter) under my towel so that it feels soft and teh towel doesn't slip off... if there was only wood beneath the towel, the towel COULD slip off... rite now, i love my own towel grip... it's much better and cheaper than the ones i buy from yonex, and they are very easy to make... just cut a long piece of towel, and ur done!!

hi.. first time poster.. (sorry for bringing back an old topic..!)
i looked at another topic before i got to this one... talking about types of towel grips... and someone mentioned the "sock" type of towel grip?.. apparently they're supposed to be reusable and washable...
has anyone thought of putting the two ideas together? --- homemade "sock"-type towel grip
you'd need a sewing machine at home though >_>.. no tape required except some electric tape near the cone to keep it from slipping off... if dirty, you could probably take off the electric tape carefully and home that there isn't thread flying everywhere lol.. then wash it or something
haven't tried this myself... but the idea kinda just popped into my head.. what do you guys think?

...and for all you people who have tried or are using the suggest homemade towel grip with the strip of towel and tape...does the towel fall apart where the threads separate as you use it and slowly become a big mess?

Tried that one , but the grip i could make is very thick. So i can not use it.
Tell me how to prevent the the grip from getting thick.

Damn I love this idea.. I can save money from buying grips. And i can even wash the towel by ripping it out the tape.

Great idea but, cheap towels make my hand have blisters lol, so i guess only the yonex towel grip has the towel i like.*peels towel grip off, uses it for a bath*

I'm suffering from "Hansel and Gretel" syndrome with my home made towel grips at the moment. Maybe it is the cheap towel that I used
