Luckily I'm not sponsored by them, and btw I don't think they find this a problem, I mean, Taufik does it as well.

So its time for a new Grip and i tried the LCW style.
Now my ArcSaber 10 PG looks really cool without the black border of the yonex tape
But i hope the grip will not peel up when iam doing a backhand serv because i always put my thumb in that area....

do u guys know how to make the bottom caps looks obvious like the one showed in the 1st picture?

Here's the procedure in my own words:
1. You put on a layer on the butt cap. Use either [a whole roll of] 2.5cm fabric tape or (which is the way I do it) padded industrial double sided tape. Make the layer as thick as you like.
2. Put on the towel grip starting from the top of the handle then finish off at the butt cap. This ensures that the butt cap area has the fluffiest appearance.
Lastly, I shall repeat what one of our members have said in these situations with you guys re-asking questions that have been answered:

i know the extra thick bottom if for protecting the fingers when you're on the ground but ...
how would it affect your swing? would it act as a counter-balance and help your smash too? of would the burden of carrying an extra few grams be not worth the weight?
my arm gets seriously tired after playing 2 and half hours on medium flex 3u racket :S

well, i just experimented this whole week on my game after making it bulge at the racket butt. smashes seems to be sharper and slightly more powerful. i believe its due to the fact that it improves the awareness of my hand position on the racket. i'm reminded to grip slightly lower to smash :P
and i didnt lose "touch" feedback since i made the top portion less overlapped than the bottom (middle finger downwards)
oh, i play with a 200g dry weight squash racket for shadow drills and 2u racket for warmup :P

If you have looked at pictures of the grips (without the towel grip on top, yet) of the professional players who use towel grip with that bulge you will see that rather than using the towel grip to put "under-grip" layers as suggested by the video, the professional players in fact use athlete tape layered.
What I would like to add is, instead of using pieces of towel grip or any other grip underneath as shown in the video, just layer athlete tape or thick industrial tape at where it is shown in the video for that bulge and grip from the top and finish at the bottom for a much smoother bulge.
