Different grips seem to suit different bats and I think the handle shape and thickness influences it.

Out of choice, it would be a UK made Chevron on top every day of the week and another chevron from getpadded up underneath as they are quite hard and thin so two grips doesn't feel too spongy.

Either a yellow or black snake scale grip with a thin half grip chevron underneath

GM matrix grip, soft light, high quality and grippy... I haven't used anything else for ages!

I think GM make pretty good grips on the whole. I've been using their "terrain" grip recently, it's a bit like the old shock absorba

Coil in either black or white.
I like the feel a ribbed grip gives.

Chevron but looking forward to using new GM terrain grip. Generally outside the chevron the GM grips look good.

Depends on handle thickness and bat weight considerations:

Snake/Scale grip for reducing weight
Coil/wave grip if i can go extra weight or need handle thicker

Can't go wrong with GM grips in general  - haven't used recent terrain grip but older diamond grips feel fantastic..

No octopus under any circumstance

Thin Chevron pattern used by Laver & Wood. It is light and feels secure in hands but it doesn't last long.

Used snake/scale for many years, but now have the wave grip on my oval handle B3 with a chevron grip underneath. Perfect for that bat, nice thick handle with a grip that has give in it. Works for me!

The New Adidas Ones are pretty nice not too thick or thin and double up and it's just right :D
