Thread: The Search For The Ultimate Grip

Towel grips have a rather short playability life. The sweat tends to make the towel stiff when dry and it gets stiffer from more sweat. You can use a knife edge to soften the towel grip but you will not get back the feel and touch of new towel without a replacement.

a grip that is like a towel?

I use Yonex Titanium grips. Shock cushioning is very good, as is sweat absorption - very important for me as i have very sweaty hands and live in the tropics. Its a rather heavy grip (20 grams, i think) and very thick, but i find that the thickness helps. I'm more relaxed while holding my racquet as compared with thinner grips - I can hold it very loosely and it has done wonders for my smash.

I use supergrap from yonex. I buy those giant packings with 30 grips at a very low price. I use them 2-3 weeks before I replace it with a new one.

I always use towel-grips, and buy it in large rolls at the time. At the moment the color is pink =)
I find the towel-grip best reasoned by the sweat-absorption, and it's fairly easy to improve the absorption with some grip-powder.

Anyone recommend the cheap place to get a roll of 30 supergrap?

I'm now using an Ashaway overgrip, I bought a box of about 50 for ~£30, I don't know what I like about this grip but it feels perfect to me . its cheap as well although really its false economy because it isn't a durable grip

Now, let's add a massive 100kg mass directly over the fulcrum:

Hint: it also explains preferences of people to big vs small grip, more comprehensive Beside, we're dwelling into O.T.

2nd moment is sum of mass x (distance from axis)^2
if the axis of rotation stays in the same place (i.e. you hold it in the same place) then adding weight anywhere can only increase this value.
holding near the cone reduces it, and holding near the butt increases it, because you are moving the axis.

but I agree that a different size grip can make it feel different
