Apology accepted Mel but this is one of the problems with forums. People type things that can be a killer for small businesses. It's a constant battle for the small sole trader companies with no form of investors other than themselves to compete against the bigger boys that have big financial backing. This is why the small companies generally give such good customer service because it's the way they survive alongside the quality of their products. One small piece of criticism in any world sticks around far longer than a huge piece of praise and therefore will stain a fantastic reputation, I learnt that very quickly as a professional cricketer that is why i will stick up for myself for the simple reason I have sacrificed so much to create my business on my own just myself and my wife and when I know I do everything I can to make it not only the best product but the best service and advice that you can find it hurts when one simple line can be written and totally misconstrued by others. I don't say this just for myself I say it for the other small companies out there fighting to build a business

I do understand that bad rep can stick Paul, but it honestly was not meant that way.

With the bat in mind, has my message found its way through to you?

Thanks

Mel..

Thought I'd add my input on this as I have a shed load of grips now all of them white apart from one.

2x White and 1x black spiral salix
1x White GM shock absorb
1x GM control white
2x new GM white/black/green
2x new GM white/red/blue
1x kookaburra players white
2x new kookaburra vee white
3x white chevron
2x new GN supernova grip white/blue
1x kookaburra snake white
I think their is a comple more kicking round just don't have my bag on me atm.
Always use to be a fan or the old spiral grips felt they sat nice in your hand and had a lot of grip. But now after testing them all I have to say kookaburra have pulled it out of the bag with the vee it has so much comfort and very grip haven't felt my hands move at all on the bat. It's a bit like an all over shock absorber but without the flexibility of it. But you can only get it in black or white at the minute.

Some would say it's a lot but I do have 6 bats in total and always nice to have the right feel when batting. Plus it's nice to have options. This year their seems to be a lot of new styles of grip and lots of options if you look around a few shops.

You looking for that style or exact colour way?
Its the kook Max grip style, bought a job lot off Lorimer's (ebay) pre christmas and aswani sorted me out the year before.

I like the wave grips but they dont get on with my gloves and wear them away quickly so going back to the good old chevron.

Currently in the process of sending some bats for refurb at Gray Nics nod stumbled upon the grip options. I was wondering if anyone had run into a foam grip (presumably under the standard one) and what they thought of them? Seem quite tough to get hold of elsewhere

Probably one of the worse grip, comes with CA bats


These grips are great as a first-layer grip in a two grip setup. I need a few for my new bats that I am preparing. Anyone got any?

The omega xrd has strips of xrd foam underneath the grip, but I've never heard of a foam grip before
