for those towel user out there, you should give a try with white colored synethetic grip. The one that i had tried is yonex grap. I don't know about white grip from other brands.

I am using pacific x grip(rubber with thread) its good but it wears out VERY quick i just changed to grip at late july and hardly playing then and now its rather worn out.. However it absorb sweat and giving a tacky feeling and gives a very good grip...

Here is my 2 cents worth...
Favourite grip of all time...Gripsy original, not sure if anyone knows if it is still available, it isn't here in Canada, not anywhere that I know of. Haven't seen it in 10+ years.
Tried lots of grips, favourite right now is Karakal Peachy in any colour or Klipper overgrips in white only. Even stretched out, it feels soft and spongy.

im using a normal protech grip.it absorbs swear but if you use a light coloured grip it will turn black and dirty after a while.its something like the pacific smash grip.exp its cheaper i bought it 4 s$2.definetely worth itbut if u re competitive you will have 2 change it once a month.i think this qn has been ask be4 but can anyone tell me wad kind of grip the professional players are using im just curious to find out.

I've been using Prince Dera-perf for a couple years now. I sweat a terrible amount and I've found this to be the best grip that retains it's stickiness. When I can't get it ( it seems to be harder and harder to find) I use dura-tread, but I find the stickyness of the surface wears down faster.

PArdon my ignorance but I have afew questions that my friends and I are arguing about with regards to the grip:
- Over grip and re-grip are 2 different product designed to be used differently?
- never remove the original grip that came with the racket, always wrap over it?
- remove the orignal grip, then apply new grip over the wooden handle
- Over grip are thin, re-grip are thick like tower grips

Recently, my friend told me that tennis grip on a badminton racket is usually better than badminton grip because it is designed to grip better when u sweat.. any comments?

Everyone wins. No hard and fast rules about the grip. As long as you like it, enjoy it! Many styles and colours comes with it.

but you got to see...
tennis is played in the open, so if u play during the day, u may perspire more, and therefore a tennis grip may be made to absorb sweat better.
however, a badminton grip also serves its function well if u r in tropical countries and playing under hot and humid conditions.
all in all, u got to try out different grips for different purposes to come up with a conclusion for yourself.
there are good grips, so-so grips, and lousy grips.

I personally like Yonex's Super Graps over the stock grip.

yonex canada will be bringing in more overgrips to canada
- AC105EX ( Excel overgrip)

i just noticed that they weren't A440's that i had and still use.
are they the same thing?
01-17-2005, 11:31 PM #254
From a local tennis shop, they have both of them. They are mostly the same thing, just under different product numbers. However, I saw some really old super grap A-440. Those even have yonex embossment on them.

they came in yesterday, and i got my share from him...
they're the same thing.
i wonder why they bothered changing the product numbers.
