Last I knew, it was a black Karakal PU Super grip. No over

Thank you Thomas. From the pics I've seen, the bevels on the handle are very pronounced, the way they would be with a leather grip. Is the Karakal extra thin?

Thomas, didnt Tim use to use the original chequed grip tape that came with the grips? I'm sure I 've seen him with that on his rqt. And strange he uses such a cheap grip too.

hey Thomas: what racquet does Tim REALLY use? Specs would be cool if you happen to know. Thanks.

On Henman's website he says he uses the Karakal PU Supergrip as Thomas said.

Yes Henman thinks they're the best apparently. I have one on my old racquet. It's not a thin grip at all. I used it as an overgrip over a thin one and it was too much for me...but each to their own.

He plays with a Slazenger X1, but with cosmetics of a ProBraided by the looks of things. I always assumed he played with the ProBraided but I'm told otherwise.

are u serious siward? i find it hard to believe henman would use a reverse paintjob.

look at how well defined the bevels are on his handle. either it's leather or an extra thin synthetic.
