Get padded up don’t do “UK made” as far as I am aware. For most people that means the softer, more latex feeling ones without molding lines inside.

I’ve always used Uzi sports but their postage is a killer. Lately Woodstock for a better all around price

I was chevron fan, then my hands started slipping a lot. Switched to gm new terrain grips. They have lovely grip but texture feels a but rigid to me. Switched back to chevron again and using newer pair of gloves with sheep leather palm.
Where can we get uk made chevrons in australi?
Have used gn as well as kookburas.
Kooka.s are thinner an gn are thicker.

I like  a coil/ribbed grip. always feels more grippy/secure to me.

A nice thick ribbed rubber for me.
But what about your bat grips?

UK made or Indian made is literally pointless when discussing grips - rubber is rubber regardless of which part of the world it's shaped into a grip (I would argue the same for a piece of willow but lets not debate that one again!)

The key I've found with grips is the thickness, quite a few brands use very thin grips to save on weight. The difference between a thick and thin grip can be over 0.5oz, this may not sound much but by the time a thicker grip, toe guard, scuff sheet etc have been added it can be a good 2/3oz more for a properly finished bat than one with just a thin grip and labels - which leads us into the deadweight Vs pick-up rabbit hole too...
