    Does anyone have any recommendations for extra long grips?
    Not really to keen on the price of the Osaka Sex Tape.

    I use just bog standard EAB off Amazon as an over grip and I love it! Got 2x5m rolls for a fiver. So could be a cheap and touch friendly option

    I plan to start rolling a different type of grip into each subscription box (sign up today at bossfhockeybox.co.uk for the low low price of £20) the first box has 2 Gribbid ProGrips which are used by many top level players and is worth £10 by themselves, well worth paying the extra £10 for all the other stuff you can get ;) (shameless plug of my new subscription box service for field hockey equipment shipping worldwide over - well sort of)

    I was also thinking once I had some capital behind me I would start selling a one off grip box with one of each type of grip/tape in the box for people to try.

    My grips are fairly standard- just a Barrington Sports chamois attached with tape at both ends.

    However, there is a trick I've started doing recently. I run the stick tape at the top down the grip by about 2 inches. This provides a smoother surface for my top hand when hitting. It also helps keep the tension high at the top of the grip- I usually find the top of a chammy goes a bit loose compared to the rest of the grip when trying to fasten it with tape at the top of the stick.

    I have started a subscription model for chamois grips, £10 for 2 grips (includes shipping), £20 for 4 grips and a roll of tape (again shipping included). you can get it either every 6 months or 12 months.
    Use code FHF10 to save 10%. What other grips would you like to see as an option? Im trying to work out how to have a grip box with lots of grips in for people to try.

    Christian, the link you have above is EAB - no.4 in my list.
    Very nice as a grip and extremely popular. It is not the light version. Has a tan line down the middle of tape in your link.

    Width I use

    Tiddles, I prefer the wider size tapes so not as many wraps / join overlaps but that's individual preference and I guess most people would be happy either width.
