    Question towel grip reduces power?????

    hi guys,
    i just read from a really old thread (2005)that towel grips reduce power but increases control. is it true??
    another thread stated that the cushioning effect of a grip increases power (more cushioning=more power), i'm a bit confused, could you plz clarify the situation.

    i like using a grip that is 4.125 inches around (my perfect fit) but i laways buy g4 rackets or similar if non yy. then i apply a homemadetowel grip and over it a thin and tacky grip. if i buy g3 and only apply thin grip, the edges of the wooden handle bothers me.
    does this cause me to lose power??? will be buying tantrum 200 and would like to know if using towel grip on it will decrease my power but increase my control???

    thanks in advance

    It's interesting how many pros use towel grips but I personally can't stand them. They become to slippery for me but I've never tried using that grip powder either.

    I think too much cushion would have less control as you'd lose some touch/feeling.
