Slazenger OctoPlus is my favourite at the moment, cant find a decent picture though.

Normal octupus style at the top, with the 'suckers' getting gradually bigger the further towards the bat you go. Gives a really nice cushioned feeling on the bottom hand.

what do people think about scale grips? they are on gn bats and a load of Indian made bats, partially because they are light.
 
I think they are truly ghastly.

I quite like them. They are nice and grippy, and don't tear your gloves apart like octopus do! Mind you, I think the best scale grip I have tried was one on my Hunts County Triumph. There's something different about that scale/snakeskin/half moon grip compared to the GN ones. It's probably because they are made of a better quality rubber. I actually used a GN half moon grip over my Laver to prevent some shock while knocking in, and had to actually cut it in half before I could roll it off. Was really surprised with the bad quality of them, as they really should have been easier to put on and take off, but it was a struggle. I was actually in pain trying to take it off, as the grip kept rolling over my fingers! :-[ A bit disappointing, as it was a brand new GN Legend one. I can at least use it to make a round handle more oval at least, so not all is lost! 8)

My favourite type of grip currently is the hybrid. I got a few from Vantage, and they really were top quality, easy to put on and had good grip. :)

Hunts scale grips are different to grays and kookaburra ones.

The hunts ones are very nice in my opinion. Grippy but not harsh on gloves, thick enough to provide good cushioning, but not so that it feels like you are holding a drainpipe.

I'll take some pics tomorrow.

Tend to agree, got one on my Hunts, I've had it for 3 or 4 years, and I've only used 2 Hunts grips in that time, it's lovely.

I do stand corrected then, well the ones Dean has on his vulcans and on the choice willow sticks are really nice, sound similar in description to the hunts ones

I'm a fan of the scale/half moon grips myself. They are grippy, have nice cushioning and have been durable so far. They also work well on my GM Grip Applicator.

I used an octopus once and it tore on me while batting. Never again...

I love the hibrid grips and think that the kookaburra ones are perfect, I have tried the diamond grips and they improve when doubled up, as they came on my GM bats.

Pardon the pun but I just couldn't get to grips with chevron, even though my laver came with two.
