    I guez not all towel grips are the same.. there are grips which has more percentage in cotton material and there are also has more nylon than cotton. I prefer to use the 100% cotton towel grips coz it absorbs more sweat than those with more nylon. And they dont cause statics. But somehow looking for those kind of grips here is hard. I dunno what brand was it since it was given to me by a friend. Now am usin those leather ones.

    If same brand, same model, the feeling should some what to be close, unless they totally change the design. If different brand/model, the feeling could be significantly different.

    Dark towel grips are rougher than light towel grips. It seems that the dyeing process hardens the grip. The best colour to buy, therefore, is white.

    You also get some thinner ones and some thicker ones, the thicker ones take a few hours of play to bed down to be comfortable.

    I would agree with the white ones being the best to play with and also seem to last longer except from getting dirty of course, even when you wash your hands thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap before playing they still get dirty

    once ur towel grip wears out, and turns all nasty and stuff.... u Remove it, and put on a new one...... u don't reuse them unless its those slip-on ones(condoms)

    and u still sweat even if u do clears ~.~...

    .....well.....i find that if you wanna keep your grip longer and keep it from going nasty, spray some of that Axe deodorant stuff on the towel grip every once in a while and dry it with a blowdryer when you get home or at least just put it somewhere and let it dry overnight.....other than that.....towel grips are nice to play with, but they can get a bit slippery sometimes when you really start to sweat.....

    It is more economical to buy towel grip in bulk reel. After a few games, the nice soft feel fades away. You can use the blade of a knife and just run the blade cross-wise against the towel grip to give you another couple of games. If the grip gets hard then it is time to strip it off and put in a new one.

    Hi...was curious about what you said in your last post...how does running a blade across the grip help it last longer? And what exactly do you mean by running the blade cross-wise against the towel grip?

    Btw...do you still get white towel grips in HK? They seem to be extinct in spore...

    You just hold the blade across the towel grip and scrap the towel grip from butt end to towards the shaft end and then from the shaft end towards the butt end a few times, and in the process some of the hardened "towel hairs" will loosen somewhat by standing up a little.
    I have seen bulk reels of towel grip in many beautiful colours but I can't recall seeing any white ones.
