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!
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.
