    The Karakal "sticker tape" is terrible. Electrical insulation tape is superb - use that instead.

    Electrical tape eh? Mmm i'll go get some for the karakal grip. I have 2 racquets using it. One is using the karakal sticker only which is loose now, while the other has the karakal tape on it but has the yonex tape on top of it covering all traces of the karakal name ^^.

    Babolat Symbrio (i think that's the name of the grip) Rocks!

    It has an antibacterial coating so it doesnt get all smelly and moldy.

    I think electrical tape is better than the adhesive tapes that comes with all the grips. I find the electrical tape more resilient to wear and tear. For holding up the grip, nothing works better.

    Default Grip Help needed

    PacificX(Control Tack 0.7)(Thicker)
    Extreme Tacky
    Extreme Control
    Extra Dampening
    The centre of the grip has some lining like a sponge(Rip Tech).This makes the racquet has a proper place to hold the racquet.

    Wilson(Thinner)
    Anti Twist and Anti Slip

    Which do you think a better choice?
    Thanks in advance for those who helped.

    Default Factory Shrinkwrap

    (Quote)
    So, all my racket handles are now look just like the original Yonex Plastic Shrink-Wrap (Quote)

    Hey Bluejeff...where do you get those shrink wrap stuff? I just got my new AT500 and it still has its original shrink wrap on the handles...so I think I am gonna just put a Yonex supergrap right over it...have you tried leaving the original factory shrink wrap on it?...will it stand up to normal play?

    Default Super Grap

    one more thing I forgot to ask is do your sweat go through the supergrap and reach the layer of grip underneath? I have only been using towel grip all this while so I dont know if super grap is waterproof on the other side...

    heres one combination that i've come to love.
    black knight TUF grip, with yonex a440 super grap over it.
    finished off with a lovely job of electrical insulation tape thats cut in half.
    http://www.blackknight.ca/en/img/pro...c082-grand.jpg

    the black knight TUF grip felt a little slippery to me, but i like the ridges on it.
    and the super grap fixed the slipper part. so with it on, all i have to do now is just replace the super grap if it wears out.

    however, even after many months of usage, it still feels very good.

    i think i'm going to cut and peel off the oem grip on each racquet from now on, and put on this combination.

    OH MY GOSH!!! Doesn't the combo tip over your racquet's weight bias?! Your racquet must be really head-light with those stuff on... unless it's really head heavy in the first place (which might make it slightly balanced).

    its not bad actually. just the TUF grip, and the yonex wrap.

    295mm balance point now. i'm not too sure what it was before.
    i DO notice i have to work a tad harder to get the same amount of power out of my hits - as compared to when i tried my friend's mp - though.

    Recently, I broke open the last T.U.F Re-Grip I had on my spare racquet. It reminded me again why I switched to Yonex SuperGrap and other thin overgrips in the first place. I changed my grip too much to feel comfortable with the enlarged grip size, the ridges actually hindered my finger movement and sometimes I couldn't find the face of the racquet w/o looking at the frame during a rally because T.U.F. Re-Grip made the grip rounded rather than hexagonal.

    i guess i lucked out...
    i think its because i started with a small grip size, and only have one TUF re-grip as the base, and one SuperGrap layer on.
    i hope you can see it in the following photos, but i think the hexagonal shape is still very prominant.

    what do you use as your base layer now?

    and have you tried the BK competition grip? if so, what do you feel about it?

    Actually I moved on to BK Competition grip after BK T.U.F. Re-Grip. It's pretty good, but still not thin enough for me after I begin to use fingerpower.

    Current combo: base layer is electrical tape to protect the wood followed by a roll of Yonex SuperGrap.
