stop the sweat !!!!
You can try any rock climbing website, not sure about prices abroad but megagrip is one of the main ones in the uk and it's saved my bones a few times so should work well with badminton rackets !!!!
If not I'm sure something like sure anti perspirant will work fine ?!?!

Guys, u can try KARAKAL...the brand sounds weird but its good to use...its for multi sports.....Lin Dan uses it too..in malaysia is so damn cheap..only Rm5 per bottle!!
Wrist band helps too....my racquets used to slip off everytime when i hit hard, with this powder and wrist band, it helps....!!

my advise is not to use antiperspirant. through some research, this invite cancer happening to your palm pores. still let it be natural.

There is no test yet done on the palm/grip that anti perspirant invite cancer, but the scientist is saying that anything that block the sweat from coming out( or natural process occur) then there is possibility that you are building up chemical dirts on the pores and in long term you are inviting cancerous cell or whatsever to your pores...

best way after playing for more than 20 years . get good syntetic grip, put a wrist tower to stop sweat moving to your palm and very important, hang a GOOD cotton towel beside your pant/pocket and dry it every time you feel necessary. I bet this will solve all your palm sweating problem.

my hand sweat alot so what is the best overgrip/replacement grip to get?

my hand sweat gallons too. get yourself some tournagrip tourna tac grip, these grip alone absorbs amazingly well. you'll be surprised, guranteed. tournagrip is associated with tennis btw. you can use the grip on almost anything. it's on all of my rackets.

Yonex Towel Grips for the win.
They also cost cheaper than the other grips. I replace mine every three weeks to one month of extensive use.

I've had this problem forever. Towel grips solve the problem temporarily, but then the towel grip gets hard after one use and it's no longer comfortable to use. I have yet to find a single overgrip that can fix my sweaty hands problem. I've used overgrips that have this really tacky layer sprayed on, and that only helps to a certain point (beyond which my hand sweat takes over and it's rendered useless).
My solution is to just use multiple rackets and keep switching between them. I put regular overgrip on these rackets so that initially they work fine when dry, and as soon as they get wet I just swap for another racket. It's too expensive to keep using towel grips, I'd prefer to invest that money in more rackets.

Yeah towel grip and grip powder I would guess will work great But in my country idk if they even sell proper grip powder... I've heard that grip powder is the same powder that climbers use. Is that true? Would it work as well?
