customer review

Comments: Every racquet I pickup from RB Warehouse, I automatically have them put a python grip on before they ship it. Just picked up royal blue on a blue gearbox max2 and its pretty sweet looking. These grips are great with or without a glove. I will never go back to a conventional grip. My coach who is a top 25 IRT pro swears by these Python grips.

Comments: Best grip available and I do use a glove with it as I turn my hand 1/4 from forward continental to backhand eagle claw as you all should. It does not tear up gloves. Nothing lasts forever.

Comments: While the Python grip itself is really nice, it is very stiff and doesn't offer a lot of cushioning.  It is actually designed for use w/out a glove.  Which is why gloves tend to get torn up when using this grip.  I actually prefer using either a black knight or karakal squash grip under a black knight or gamma over grip.  It gives a better tacky grip and a lot more cushioning!  Durability-this grip is top notch-will probably outlast whatever racquet you put on...Years. And because it is so stiff, it is hard on your wrist, and forearm especially.  And I suppose from an economical point of view-it and the head tacki-mac are the winners hands down, both for durability and that you are better off not using a glove.  Which over time could save you hundreds of dollars!

Comments: 7 years of hard playing and with all the racquets I have used and all the tournaments and games I play, there is no other grip that you should be using... PERIOD! Durability wise, no other compares, best $6 investment you can make for your racquet and your game!

Comments: Best grip available... very aggressive threading, goes on great.. comes in every color you could want. Went with the vibrant pink cause that's just how I roll! Very satisfied with the grip!

Comments: Best rubber grip available. Doesn't twist in hand when wet, like the Ektelon. Strong and tacky rubber. Used by more pros than any other grip for a reason.  A+.

Comments: Love this grip, the only one I use now on all my racquets. What I like most of this grip is that after many hours of play the rubber starts to conform to the shape of your hand. I don't think I will ever go to another grip.

Comments: Very satisfied with the grip. I have noticed that it is starting to chew up my glove a bit, but I think that is more user error than anything. I am convinced you could grease up your hand and still not have it slip with a Python. I will use this until something better comes out.

Comments: Python are the best grips I have ever put on my racquets...PERIOD!
From: Oscar, Pembroke Pines, FL 01/08

Comments: This is definetly the best grip ever, i've been using it for about 1 year and it totally changes your hold of the racquet. I totally recommend it. PYTHON ROCKS!
From: Jorge, Tijuana, Mexico 05/07

Comments: This grip is x-tremely terrible an i do not think anybody should buy this grip the best grip around at the moment has gotta be the head tacki mac pro!!!
From: Jonothan, Miami, FL, USA

Comments: I replaced the factory grip on my Head Liquid Metal 180 with the green version and it has been the best investment for my racquet besides having it restrung by Curtis Morgan. These grips rock. Dont waste your money on conventional grips that wear down to quickly, use the rubber and protect yourself!! You will thank yourself later, I promise!!!!!
From: Jason, Reinland Pfalaz, Germany (USAF)

Comments: These grips are far superior to anything else on the market. Until you feel the difference, it's hard to explain the benefit you get from a better grip. Python really understands what players want in a grip.
From: Parker, Olive Branch, MS USA 12/06

Comments:Every racquet I've owned for years has had the Python and I wouldn't have anything else. They do wear eventually, but I hit quite hard and have no complaints of the life I get from them. Installation can be a challenge, but no more than any other rubber grip.
From: Eric B., Placerville, CA USA 06/06

Comments: I replace any/every grip with a Python - right out of the box. Have tried PK's rubber grip but, when compared to the snake, it feels slippery. I recommend all new players to change their grips (to the Python) as part of my instruction...
From: Randy S., Minot, ND, USA 03/06

Comments: These grips are much better than the ektelon grip that came on my Ektelon more attack. I don't think I will ever use another girp. The python grip outperforms all others.
From:Mark G., Johnson City, TN, US

Comments: I've now replaced the factory wrap on both of my Ektelon TT Vendettas with Python rubber grips. What a difference from the factory wrap! The Python provides a sure grip even with sweaty hands, no matter the weather. Both my racquets now have Python grips, as will any racquets that I will own in the future. I highly recommended these grips. Thank you Racquetball Warehouse!
From: Scott, Holbrook, AZ, USA. 12/04

Comments: An IRT industry standard as a replacement grip to the manufacturer synthetic wraps. The herringbone pattern offers an amazing hand to racquet grip. This grip outlasts any synthetic and other manufacturers rubber replacement grips by up to 3 times longer. The raised flare offers players an even greater amount of gripping power.
