    Here's mine. First two are whipper replacement grips, one with a very slight overlap for a little more grip. The last one's a Toalson overgrip taken up to the cone for more comfort while defending.

    Could someone tell me how to grip like this?

    Look closer to the bottom of the grip. It's like Taufik's gripping style. The only difference is the material. LCW doesn't use towel grip.

    This is my newest try, Tourna Gauze grip tape, I have wrapped this over Yonex-Supergrap.. This feels tacky!! I have not tried playing in this. Did any of you guys try this Gauze one? I know its good for tennis racquets. Any thoughts?

    LOL ;) It does look like first aid tape :p.. But the good thing is its easy to wrap and remove self-adhesive. Also lil research on this grip says that it might reduce the blisters on palm, @davlee: not sure about durability just going to try my first game with this in few hours.. Will keep you guys posted!! :)

    It is tacky. It has rather an ugly feel, but it's just my personal impression when I've used it on the bare wood (to avoid any damage after removing a replacement grip).

    Alright Guys! Its been a week since I started using this "Gauze Grip" so far my feel is that: It is Tacky.. Also first few days I had this feeling that it absorbs moisture so well. The only problem is you have to frequently change the grip say 15 days once? If you play daily! Other than that, wrapping it on top of a synthetic grip felt so better than having a towel grip(my preference).. :)

    It's gripped! :D

    Here is my grip. It's a Karakal Nano 60. Very thin but very tacky. I have introduced a bulge on the end cap with a few wraps of an old grip underneath the new one to increase the size at the bottom but keeping the usual size at the middle and top. Going over the cone has made a convenient hole to put my thumb. The only drawback is it looks dirty very quickly.

    You're ok with the tape not completely attached to the cone?...

    Yonex towel (I sweat a lot :eek:) direct onto wood with no overlaps (I like a loose grip when required for touch shots, can grip hard when required and produces a bit of extra 'snap' during smashes), electric tape cut in half to reduce width to secure.

    How do you get it completely on the cone? Whenever I do it I can't get the tape to stay down.

    It just looks ghetto, that's all... Can be easily remedied by stretching the tape to conform to the cone, which is how it's usually done. But hey, different strokes for different folks. :)

    Ghetto? I like it how it is. TBH I think going all the way over the cone serves no purpose and looks rough. I like the bulge it makes just before the cone.

    I think visor is pointing out that the tape doesn't seem to be holding the grip in place at all and is 'floating'

    If you buy individual grips (I don't, I buy reels of towel grip), throw the supplied tape in the bin, in my experience it's rubbish. Use electrical tape, and stretch it as you apply it.

    just my personal preference to have it taped on the cone completely to make it neater, but i'm stupidly picky about little things :)

    Oh, okay thanks I always get the 3 packs of grip so I just use the tape that comes with it. So maybe that's why I always get my tape looking like that, not that it really affect performance at all.
