Leather Grips



One of the most important part of the relationship between equipment and player is the handle and grip. It is your point of contact. Players are very sensitive to the feel of the grip, and each grip must be wrapped identically.

For this example of 'how to fit a Leather Grip' we have chosen a Fairway grip by E.B. Balmfouth LTD. formely of Leeds, now in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. England.

 
 


The Fairway Grip is arguably, the best in the world.


It is produced from the finest calf skin obtainable and will retain its tackiness indefinitely, provided you look after it.

 

Cleaning you Leather grip.

You will find after considerable use your grip appears to be losing its "tack". This is only because it needs cleaning and the best way of doing this is to saturate a cloth in methylated spirits and rub it over the grip (this will remove all the dirt which has collected on the surface)

Allow about half an hour for the spirit to evaporate from the leather, then apply a small quantity of caster oil.

Allow eight hours for the oil to penetrate into the leather and your grip will be ready for use and will feel as good as new.

Do not apply too much caster oil as this will result in making the grip greasy.
