Best bat grips?
« on: May 13, 2020, 08:42:31 PM »

What are people's favourite bat grips? Best suppliers?

Best I've found yet are James Lavers - very high quality white chevron. Anyone know where you can get similar quality in the UK?

love a spiral.   I find they do tear quite quickly but, for me, lots of other grips are not 'grippy enough'

Spiral all the way. Used to get them from upfront cricket for about 2.50 inc postage. Then they ran out of black ones so had to go white. Lifes hard sometimes.

Salix used to sell high quality U.K. made chevrons.

The laver chevrons like you say are very nice and seem to be the same you get on ss bats which I love.

I always buy new grips, all different styles and always revert back to the uk made chevrons above

I don't know how to put this, but, I'm kind of a big deal.

Uk.  Made chevron grips for me all the way. Change my grip  roughly after every 5 games or so. Always got mine from a seller on eBay but he seems to have gone quote recently. Luckily i have about 25 spare at the moment so will last me a while

I like the gm matrix grips, soft and high quality. You can buy them relatively cheaply by the dozen.

I've bought from this seller various times in the past and always received good quality grips. Here's his link - https://www.ebay.ca/usr/cougarcricket?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

Ive got one really thick and grippy white chevron and have no idea where I got it from. Its sensational and Id immediately change all my grips if I knew where to find them this thick... any ideas?

I cant post a pic as the bats down the ground - sorry
