    Default Grip or Grap? I'm so confused -_-''

    Honestly, I really don't know the difference between Yonex's grips and graps. I went to the store the other day and the guy told me for GRAPS (as in strong, mesh, clean.. etc) you apply them over your original manufactured grip, while for GRIPS you use to 'replace' the original grips Can someone point me to the right direction?

    Grips are the ones that come with the racket, the thick one wound on top of the wooden handle. The graps are sweat absorbing wraps that could be wound over the grip for better grip & also adjusting the grip size accordingly for you. They are usually thinner than the Grips.

    It's just a marketing thing. Yonex calls it grap while others call it grip.

    For Yonex:
    Grip: is the grip that you put on top of the wooden handle. Also known as replacement grips

    Grap: Also known as overgrips. You use these over another grip, not on top of bare wood.

    Graps are thinner than overgrips (normally)

    I use a Karakal PU single grip wound tightly over the handle, and a Yonex grap ontop to give a slightly thicker grip.

    Bang on the money. Most other companies just call it base or overgrip... Yonex just wants to be special
