Anyone ever used these instead of cricket at grips?

I've used Aero bat grips before. Seemed a bit too spongy for my linking.

I did try some 3M hammer grip tape stuff from the Lidl once. That worked well but can't seem to find it anywhere online.

Remember the aero grip. Looks very similar.

Surely baseball players wear gloves...

Think might give the aero grip a go as it's a 'cricket' grip.

You will need to buy the Aero batting gloves aswell

Im not joking Im trying to be helpful. The Aero grip is only designed to work with Aero gloves.

Wearing normal calf or pittards gloves the bat will twist all over the place in your hands and be unusable.

In that case I'll pass... and instead try the new GM grips  :)

GN did a hockey style grip years back, it was good but wore out stupidly quickly.

I had one on a Longbow Titanium, around 2002-2003 if memory serves. It was comfortable, but overall was an awful grip, which was way too thin, and if you put another on top the outer grip would slip all over the place.

I've used squash tape/grip stuff before and quite liked it, although after a while it started to peel and would need putting back in place every few balls

Did however score my 1st ton using a bat with this grip on, was 10 years ago though

Well I'm definitely now convinced to stick to normal rubber cricket grips...just seemed a fanciful idea after seeing the multicoloured grips for hockey and baseball... typical CBF in the moment crazy idea... :D

The old SS Turbo came with a hockey style grip. Was decent while fresh but faded.

As a hockey player, I know the current grips are very sticky in general, unless you went for a shammy style grip, which seems to work better when it is damp/wet.

That's correct.

Aero grips work with Aero gloves.
