Types of Squash Grips
Your racket will come with a stock factory grip. You can put an overgrip on top of that, to help with sweat absorption, or to increase the size of the grip and make the racket feel more comfortable in your freakishly large hands.
You can also buy a replacement grip. In this case you remove the factory grip and put on the replacement grip instead.
I generally only use overgrips. My favorite has always been Tourna Grip. Here’s a video review I did of Tourna Grip, along with a brief tutorial on how to grip a squash racket:
I don’t use replacement grips too often but I’d have to guess the #1 brand of replacement squash grips is Karakal PU Super Grip. Tons of pros use Karakal.
Here’s a video discussing Karakal grips and another overgrip called RKEP:
Picking a grip is a very personal matter. Obviously, you need your squash racket to feel comfortable in your hands. So experiment with different squash grips and see what works best for you and your freakishly large paws.
