    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but opening a new topic for it was a bit silly I guess..

    I was wondering if anyone had some experience with the Carlton Stitched Grip? I'm looking for an alternative to the Yonex SuperGrap: I would prefer a more durable and a little thicker grip.

    Kind regards,
    Stijn

    Update: an updated grip review will be coming a day or so. I've focused on tackiness and wet ratings and am minimizing the "relative to its peers" method of rating to a "this is what I think it is and that's how I'm going to rate it, regardless..." method. This should make some ratings more "realistic" rather than scientific.

    Also adding a few new grips.

    Hi everyone, nice work DinkAlot, I'm interested in your upcoming review... I have also one suggestion: to avoid "this is what I think it is and that's how I'm going to rate it, regardless..." methods, can we make a poll? We should choose 10 best grips and then people can vote about their characteristics (from 1 to 10) like tackiness, durability... Is this possible? Like they did on this page about tennis strings: http://www.stringforum.net/stringsea...w=10&details=1

    I really miss such reviews in badminton central. It can be made for badminton strings, grips, shuttles, even racquets...

    And yes, I also hope that you will include Karakal and Pointfore Supreme (white) grip - I use this grip now and I'm very impressed.

    If you want to do a poll, by all means go ahead. I'm not going to do one here. Also, I don't have access to the Karakal and Pointfore grips you mentioned so cannot review them...as of yet.

    Yeah, but here is the problem: I can't do a poll - there is no option at "make new thread" or anything like that to make it

    i dont like Yonex SuperGrap grips for some reason after around 5 hrs of play they arent tacky anymore and it feels dull. I always regrip after every 2-3 sessions of playing and its costing some money.

    i just got some wilson xtra tack wilson. It is very tacky, but i pefer the feel of my Prince Duratred it feels softer with better traction. The wilson xtra tack is good but doesnt got the feel and cushion i like.

    I'd agree with you there but DuraTred doesn't last at all. Recently I've purchased quite a few other grips and there are some promising ones.

    I think overall, it's still hard to beat Prince MicroTac. It lasts a long time, relatively speaking and good cushioning and tack. Probably my favorite now.

    Two other grips to consider: Volkl Super Grip II and Technifibre Contact Wrap.

    Yep, good cushion, texture, and durability. However, in the very wet, it's quite slippery. It has a rubbery feel. Some love it, some don't. I like it but not for the wet...actually, I don't think there's an overgrip that's truly "adequate" for the wet. I'll reflect that in my updated grip reviews in a few days.

    Is it advisable to wrap 2 layers of overgrip? My current racket is a G3 and i feel that i dont generate as much power compared to my old racket where the grip size was bigger becuz everytime i hit hard the racket seems to slip away.

    I prefer something "bulkier" to hold on. Or should i try a tackier grip? Currently i'm using karakal pu grip. Any advice?
