    Default Ashaway Grip Powder

    Does anyone out there use Ashaway Grip Powder (or any other grip powder), and if so, how good is it? I'm having trouble holding onto my Karakal/Pointfore PU grips at the moment and I don't get on with towel grips at all, so grip powder might be a solution.

    Any other potential solutions would be appreciated was well.

    Hi,

    I use Ashaway grop powder, infact i carru two bottles of the stuff in my bag. It is kind of like a small, gritty powder that you apply to your hands and grip. i find it very useful, it takes away the sweat almost immediately, it does smell like cheesy feet though . But it is very good.
    I used to use Physio Sport Grip, that liquid stuff that you rub together and it dries. Absolute crap, so i wouldnt reccommed that

    Cheers Matt - Do you get yours from Centralsports? I look forward to smelling cheesy every time I play

    Does anyone know what the stuff is that Kim Dong Moon uses? It seems to be a sticky liquid type substance.

    Can you remember how much it is Matt? It doesn't say on the site.

    I have sweaty hands and I've tried a variety of things

    I used to use hand conditioner powder like ten-pin bowlers use (because I had some left over from my bowling days)

    then I tried that Physio-Sport Grip liquid which I thought was good but it didn't last very long and the bottle always got gunked up.

    then I used talcum powder for a bit while I was looking for something else. this was probably the least effective of all.

    then I switched to a towelling grip which helped

    then I found gymnastics / weightlifting chalk
    excellent
    check out www.gymnasticexpress.co.uk and look for Grippy Chalk blocks
