How many grips?
« on: January 05, 2019, 03:27:26 AM »

I was wondering how many grips do you use on your bat? I personally was using two grips on each bat but decided to use 3 grips and my bat has a better pick up and absolutely no vibration at all.

How many grips do you prefer on your bat and why?

I use 1/2 grip on the bottom and 01 full on top of that. I prefer the thicker feel on the bottom of the handle.

One because I feel like any more over complicates things. Also like to feel the bat in the hand and I wear inners, so anymore and I'd lose that feeling.

I go with the feel of bat. According to feel I apply two grips or one grip with tape. I keep changing until i get right feel.

Depends on the bat, GM a single grip,  a Keeley and out comes the medical tape, the grip off cut box, and much fiddling ensues

Used to have 1 and half grips with chevron as the outer grip.

Trying GM terrain grips on all bats this year. Also finally bought some 3M white vinyl electrical tape for grips. Used to use any generic tape but this stuff seems much better...

That sounds very familiar!

On my 2010 Salix Fera, just the 1 Salix Spiral grip which is very thick. On my 2018 Keeley, one thin, plain underneath one Salix Spiral grip as the Keeley's handle was thinner than my Salix.

It's true what they say - a bat can feel like a totally new one by changing its grip(s)!

Were did you pick up the electrical tape. I tried using muscle tape and a tennis grip but doesnt have the right feel.
