Ektelon Vision II Rubber Grip

Comments: Good news, bad news scenario. The good news is there is no better grip out there for grip enhancement, period!(I have literally tried them all). As an added bonus, this grip provides a bit of dampening to ease racquet feedback without loosing racquet feel. Bad news is that they wear out faster than any other grip. I usually get between 20 to 40 hours on one before it wears through. If you try this grip prepare to fall in love with it and get used to changing it frequently. Hair spray install method is my favorite, gasket cement and wd40 work well also.

Comments: To Mitch: I recommend warming and stretching the grip before putting it on. Also, I use WD-40, and that works for me. Any excess on the handle butt can be dried with a paper towel if necessary.

Comments: When installing follow instructions and use hair spray not glue.  Do not use alcohol free hair spray it will not dry & the grip will keep slipping.  Spray the handle and grip to get it started.  Then spray the grip generously through the hole in the top of the grip and use a twisting motion to slide it down.  I have no problem doing it this way.  I prefer this grip.

Comments: During installation for my replacement grip, I have had two split on the end just as soon as I pushed it on. I used clear glue last time.  I follow instructions well. Any got some help on the replacement install?

Comments: This grip is the best I have used so far. I have not found it to tear or wear down at all. Someone who goes through gloves very quickly I'm sure tends to do so with grips as well. As for me love this one!!

Comments: This is, by far, my favorite grip. Only problem I had with it was when I forgot my glove once. My hand was perspiring heavily and the rubber turned into one of the most slippery surfaces ever. Aside from that one instance, this grip has been fantastic.
