Comments: I've used this grip for 16 years. I just recently took my old rackets out for the first time in like 5 years. It feels just like I remembered it.  Just ordered two more for my new rackets.

Comments: A friendly tip for putting your new rubber grip on the racquet: DO NOT stretch the grip. Also, I found that the instructions which came with my new Python rubber grip very useful (wonder why it's not sold here anymore): 1) completely remove the old grip down to the handle, 2) spray WD-40 evenly on the handle, don't apply too much and also make sure NOT to get it on the outside of the new grip, 3) use a hair dryer to slightly warm up the grip, and 4) slide the new grip on the handle and position it properly. Wait for about 24 hours and the grip should be as good as glued to the handle. This worked very effectively for my Python grip on my Ektelon racquet, but please use your own judgment (i.e., follow the above tips at your own risk).

Comments: What a disappointment! Just got our order & tried to put it on my Head Black Widow racquet. Slide it over the handle? Ha, couldn't even get it an inch on! We read & re-read the instructions to no avail. I can't believe I wasted my money on this!

Comments: I just tried it last night and it felt great, not too thick, very easy to switch from backhand to forehand, thanks.

Comments: This grip provided amazing traction with leather palms. Downsides is that it has a larger diameter than a python. What happens is when it is on the XS grip, there is airspace between the grip and the octagonal handle. This creates friction and wears out the inside of the grip. Another downside is as great as the surface is, the little "prongs" of rubber eventually rub off (playing 4 times a week for 3 weeks), and becomes a slippery, virtually useless grip. I am sticking with python.

Comments:  Not recommended at all, very slippery after first set, gotta keep changing gloves per game very often, my advice stick with the Python...

Comments: Good Grip! Not very "tacky", but I would compare the feeling of this grip to somewhere between truck bed lining and sand paper. Weird, I know. I rock the Head Conquest and Renegade gloves and despite the description I gave before, it actually has a nice soft feel with gloves on, and has awesome traction.

Comments: This is an excellent grip. It took a while to get one, but it was my first time. I added some super glue to the top and bottom of the handle after the grip was installed for extra hold. It also has good tackiness. Its durability is yet to be determined.
