    I've been plagued by this problem, towel grips would be great for the first day or so, too slippery afterward.

    I've tried basically all of the grips in Panda's first post, Gamma and Volkl worked okay for me, though both ended up getting slippery after a few games.

    What seems working best for me is Tournagrip, most commonly seen as a light purple grip in tennis shops. Surprisingly absorbent for a non-towel grip it remains very tacky, the only issue is its durability. I find I have to change it after about 8-10hrs of play. I know Tennis Warehouse carries them, at pretty reasonable prices $35 after shipping for 30 grips.

    Yeah, Tournagrip and Tournatac are meant to be the absolute best for wet hands. However, I've heard they can make your hands blister if it's not wet enough.

    Not necessarily true. Your technique maybe fine, you maybe playing too much badminton.

    i've used this before & it's channels sweat away very well.
    I purchased a GUTR Head Band and though it does channel sweat away, it goes to the back of your neck and around your ears. And if you pour like this Panda, it's very uncomfortable, not to mention gets on the ground.

    I'm in agreement with Teoky, the www.haloheadband.com is the best I've tried and I've tried just about all of the headbands available. Once it gets saturated, just go to a water faucet and soak it very quickly, twist dry, soak again, twist dry and it's basically ready to go again. There's a bit a dampness but it's not a big deal.

    If there's no water available, you can just twist dry and continue to use it. You'd be amazed how much water the Halo Head Band can soak up.

    Finally, the best headband for all out absorbing sweat is the Under Armour thick basketball type headband. It looks very similar to the one LeBron James wears. The UA headband soaks up every last ounce of sweat, the only problem is it gets heavy very quickly and is very puffy/cumbersome looking.

    Finally, I always keep 3 or 4 headbands ready for use...just in case.

    No such thing as "too much badminton".

    I thought it was a funny reason to grave dig as well....but, I'm glad he did. I happen to sweat to the point where it looks like I've been swimming in my badminton clothes so some of the tips in this thread were actually of interest to me.

    Wilson Comfi: haven't tried yet

    Alpha: I have not tried it in depth but so far, very good

    Head Super Comp: very good to excellent so far in feel and tackiness

    Kirschbaum Touch It: very good feel, good tackiness

    Dunlop Hydramax: non-tacky, velvety feel, excellent at absorbing sweat
    How are these grips compared to RKEP grips like the G08, G16, G03, G06 and so on?
