How can I make my grip more octagonal? It is way too roundish!

if you are using an overgrip, replace the original grip with a leather grip and put the overgrip on top. I recently did it to all my racquets and can definitely feel the corners more (Volkl grips are the best for leather).

Another thing I've seen is to put balsa wood underneath the grip. You would need to set them perfectly and on all 8 sides. Bad part is that it would increase your grip size.

If you don't like leather and don't want a possible increase in grip size, only thing you can really do is find a thinner replacement grip.

Hope this helps

I agree with changing to a leather grip... I just got my Pro-One and the syn. overgrip that it came with made the grip a little too round for my liking... so I just swapped it for a leather one...

Dispense with the regular grip altogether. Strip it down to the bare handle, then apply two overgrips. Two Tournagrips does it for me.
