hi there,
my cousin has just bought a babolat power game racket and wants to wrap a new grip on its handle!
he can't wrap it up truly as he wants and the end of grip doesn't fit as it should!
is there any advices or pics of wrapping a grip on babolat rackets??
thanks in advance...

I always do it starting with the triangular end because that way the grip naturally wraps upwards without wrinkles.

-pull tight
-keep overlapping to a minimum (1/8-1/4)
-wrap clockwise for right-handers

lol I wrapped counter-clockwise once...didn't make much of a difference, but it felt weird since the overgrip was wrapped for a righty :p.

For the OP, the tenniswarehouse links as shown by nyc are really good.

Me too. I like to start with the triangular end also.

you need a pair of scissors to do a proper job, so you can cut the end at an angle so it tapers off as you wrap
