I have 2 and a half bindings and then 3 grips on match bat, but different amounts on different makes
Tried the trend of having only 1 grip to promote extra bat speed.
 Surely it's what suits everyone ??? (and each bat?)

Must've missed this, why would one grip make your swing faster?

It's been a trend over the last 8 / 10 months, the idea is you will create quicker bat speed.
All rubbish in my opinion, surely a bat/handle/grips etc is like finding your ideal partner (beauty is in the eye of the beholder)
Also it's surely what works for each of us ????

Technically, doesnt more grips improve the overall pickup by shifting the weight balance upwards?

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.


Same here thought i was the only one! But  i build up the bottom using electrical tape or tennis racket tape...

Id argue over probably at least five year handles in general have got thinner, weight reduction to get the bigger edges and spine heights?

But correct that there is more than one way to skin a cat. Billings, Buttler and Galye probably all have very different bat styles and grip set ups. All three can hit a 100m six with ease... its not wrong its just different.
