    If I were your stringer I would donate you a fresh grip.

    Old towel grips are the worst though. Some of them I've been given have made me want to throw up.

    Lust:).

    And it means I don't have to restring for restored tension every two weeks. Mind you, there have been a couple of sessions where I've broke two... had to drive home in the middle of one of them to restring!

    You are actually married with GOSEN, right? Which string? You must be a bad guy that no one borrowed you a racket. ;) I would borrow you one. ;)

    I'm with the Gosen, but I'm cheating with BG80 at the mo.

    And the next highest tension at my club is 24 - I just get a mental block trying to play that loose these days... machine's fault.

    I understand your dilemma. Before I must play something which is 6-7lbs lower than my go-to, I would drive home, too

    A bit late of a reply, I grip it with the opposite side so that it ends with the adhesive (sticky part at the end) that you would usually start with

    Did you guys remove the original grip then left the wood itself and replace it with a new grip or plainly overgrip the original one?

    depends on how think you want your grip. While i used overgrip tapes i left the factory grip on and just wrapped my overgrip over it. but some do 2 layers of overgrip on bare wood or even one. depends on your preferance

    Towel grip on my Li-Ning Flame N55 II

    2015-08-17 01.43.53_2.jpg

    I like gripping up to the cone since I'm a doubles player. Just the usual "Korean style" grip on my Li-Ning Flame N55 II. I prefer using towel grip rolls now. ;)

    Removed the original grip. Placed a layer of athletic tape on bare wood then wrapped it up with towel. Plus multiple layers of thin stripped athletic tape on the racket's butt. :)

    What is the point of the athletic tape?

    Only avoid the grip on the wood or is there something else?

    I think mainly to avoid water (sweat) getting to the wood handle.

    And usually one should use iso tape for that ^^
