Just stumbled onto this site, which is probably known to some:

http://cricketbatgrips.com

They offer custom grips, with a minimum order of 3.
Various styles, and you can have up to 4 colours.
'Players Matrix' is the in grip for 2107. Who knew?
Free postage too.

Looks good.

Not sure I'm up for waiting 90 years for it to turn up though.  ;)

crappy picture, but these are the ones. They were the nuts.


My annual beg to see if anyone knows of anywhere still stocking these, the king of grips!

what grip tends to be the best to prolong the life of your gloves?

after reading parts of this forum - I see that the Octopus grips seem to be the worst (which is what I have always used since trying them lol)

I like the look of the salix hybrid ones

any recommendations?

I'd imagine chevrons would be best on gloves, and hybrids would probably be pretty good on them too, as you say octopus tend to shred the palms

Might be biased but I'd say the Hybrid ones i posted above your post are by far the best all round grips, unfortunately they're not stocked many places.

Somehow I seem to have stocked up about a million grips and after much faffage have stuck with GN chevrons as they are reasonably thick, stay in place and seem to last well.

I'll have to embrace my inner geek and get pics and weights of all the spares I have when back home  ;) :)

Aero bat grips are lighter , the one i expermented with with was about 18gm , but now that i think about it , my handle was thin so i cut a little excess off ....but still, would have definitely been less than 25gm .

Heard of them a few years ago, $60 a go to see if they like it might discourage a few. Gimmick in my opinion.
