Badminton Grips Buying Guide
Badminton Grips – there's loads to choose from, what are the key things to look for when choosing?
What Types of Grip are there
a. Full Grip / Replacement Grip
b. Towel Grip
What size of Grip do you need?
What Style of Player you are?
What level of tackyness/dryness grip do you need?
Another aspect to look for is on all our Badminton Grip product pages, where we have 2 performance bars. 1 for durability, highlighting how long to expect the grip to last before needing replacement. Secondly, stickyness, which is how much the grip itself holds to the skin of the hand when playing.
What Type of Grips are there:
a. Full Grip:
This is used by players who generally only want 1 major grip on their racket. It's usually fitted straight from the wood of the handle.
b. Towel Grip:
Like a full grip its usually used for players only wanting 1 major grip on their racket, it's also the thickest of the 3 types of Badminton Grip. Towel grip is designed for players who's hands get particularly sweaty during play.
Used in 2 ways by players. Firstly, its a much thinner grip than the other 2 versions. Some players prefer overgrip on it's own, to enable a small racket grip for excellent control when playing, however most players use overgrip as it's original intention, which is to go over a traditional full grip and thicken the size of the racket handle.
What Style of Player you are?
Power Attacking – Usually suits a thicker grip, as players with this style generally hold their racket handles tighter to force powerful shots
Speed, Control & Deception – Players with this style will prefer a thinner grip to enhance control over the racket head for quick changes of racket head position. It also enables a quicker changing of grip from forehand to backhand.Full Badminton Grips Buying Guide
