    There are other brand name of grips that are cheaper yet good. I find that my palm is sweaty after the beginning of a game. Then I used those liquid/cream that dries up your hand (forgot the name) and they work very well. I personally don't like those tower grips so I stick to those sythetic grip, which I change quite often.

    Mizuno grips. They are thin grips so another underlayer of a thin grip seems sufficient for me.
    I also use Yogi's suggestion.
    I consider my hands a very decent test of grips. Most grips are good new but the real test is how long for?

    I bought the PACIFIC towel grip. It comes in one long towel stripe (cca. 5 grips long). You must cut the length at your own need, which is cool cause you can make the grip thinner or thicker that way. It only costs as 2 Yonex towel grips but must remind you that you actually get 5 grips length.

    The towel grip tends to harden when it dries out. That is manly because of salt, so I try to wipe the grip with wet (not soaked) sponge or towel, then let it dry and afterwards I use a hard brush (the one for hand-washing) to brush a grip.

    It's not like new but is 70% better. Try it out. This is a trick I figured out recently. My palms sweat A LOT and the only grip that does for me is towel grip and this 'technique' keeps it in shape, so you don't need to change it that many times and u donít get blisters either.

    Good luck,
    Gregor

    Karakal are well known for making the best grips, for example the 'Kushy Grip' or the standard PU grip, both are these are very good and durable. I tend to use the Ashaway Super Grip, mainly because i get sweaty hands and these become more 'Grippy' (good word!) as your hand sweats. If your hand does sweat, then towel grips maybe a possibility, Yonex towel grips for example. But if you want a good frip then get the Karakal PU grip, it all goes down to preference...

    Well i can't say which one is best to choose but try Karakal X-Shock Grip, or Karakal Kumfy Grip these two are my fave ones. I stuck with X-Shock grip for ages and see its price go up and up boo cry

    If you do suffer with sweaty palms though, get a towel grip they are super absorbant! Get a bundle of grips and try them to see what u preferre...

    Default Towel Grips

    Matt,

    I find my racquet handle getting very 'wet' from perspiration. Where in the UK, do you get the towel grips from ?


    cheers,

    Hi all,

    Sean: What grip have you got at the moment and what do you mean wet, as in slippy?

    Jay: I think it's quite close between Yonex and Karakal, but i think Karakal have the grip expertise and Yonex have the racquet expertise. Don't get me wrong, Yonex are good for grips, but i don't think you can beat Karakal.

    Yonex grips arn't durable... I haven't really used towel grip much but I don't think those are durable either...

    Karakal ones feel pretty good although I only had a chance to use it when using friend's racquet.

    personally, i like the think cloth ones, because they have a nice feel... but unfortunately, i wear them down too fast.... so now i usually use the yonex ones... cuz they're quite durable... unless someone wants to recommend a durable cloth one...

    For me, a grip usually lasts about 2 months (6 hrs play /wk) as my hand don't perspire much.

    I prefer the Yonex Grap though I've tried other tacky-feeled grips without any noticeable differences. As to durability, you can always reuse the grap by unrolling and re-rolling from the other end. Though at less than $2/grap, I usually re-wrap with a fresh roll.

    Default Towel Grips

    Matt,

    Yes ....I do mean 'wet' as I seem to get a lot of perspiration in the end part of the grip handle ....

    It does get slippery but instead of some powders/sprays you can get I thought it might be time to at least try a towel grip.

    Do you know where I can get some towel grips ?

    Sean

    Sean,

    Well there are many good towel grips out on the market at the moment, for example the Yonex and Ashaway towel grips. But if you want a good grip which is super absorbant then i would get the Yonex towel grips.

    Go to www.centralsports.co.uk I feel these are the best suppliers and they dispatch the product the same day as the recieve the order. The Yonex towel grips come in at £2.00, where as Ashaway do a long roll (20 meters) for £19.99 (red only). The choice is up to you, but it's up to you which ones. Also, the Ashaway grip powder would be good also.

    Hope this helps

    Matt

    My current favorite is the Babolat "Pro Team", which has a dry, spongy feel. They also make a "VS", which is thinner and a little less spongy. That comes is a charcoal gray color which goes so well with the MP77!!
