Title: Kwikgrip applicator?
Post by: Mattsky on January 25, 2015, 08:59:14 PM
Been struggling to get a Kook Max grip over a chevron grip using the plastic bag method (never going to happen) and stumbled across the Kwikgrip applicator.
Can't find them for sale anywhere - Aswani don't appear to stock them now.
Any ideas? Or would a cone be the next best thing?

Cone is the easiest in my opinion.

It just takes some practice.

From experience these (No Swearing Please) pump contraptions just don't work for applying a bat grip.
Invest in a good old cone, easiest way by far  :)

I don't like them, not great to use.

Comes are best, in my opinion.

They are pants. And not wide enough for a second grip on most bats.

Use a cone.

i have both and as much as i like the vacuum pump they dont work for second grips and after a couple of goes cones are far easier

Those vacuum pumps can have some fun alternative uses though!  ;)

they work if you tape securely both ends of the grip but never work on octo grips

Mine works fine... much quicker and easier than a cone.. even for a 2nd grip... sometimes have to secure one end on my thigh to ensure vacuum remains as well as a continuous pump.. can't remember the make but not one of gm's black ones...

The only problem with using a cone is that it is very hard to get a thick grip on, like a GM control

Thanks for your thoughts, folks. In the end I went for a good old cone.
Managed to get the job done, but it was a bit of a struggle with the thick Kook grip.  :-[

Blast from the past there, but someone seems to be selling the Fearnley ones on eBay now for a tenner.

Guessing someone found a stash of them in a warehouse or something. Interested to know why sort of grip types the manage. Not many using normal chevrons these days, but in true CBF style
I bought 2 before checking  :D

Nice spot!
So the question is... is it any good?

Got mine in the post today, not the easiest to get a thick GM grip onto but once it's on it works a charm! Top spot @Kulli
