Hello, not really a question about playing, but the racquet Itself, I am left handed, and I heard the grips for leftys are put counter clockwise, or something like that, I did that on my Microgel Mid Plus, the thing is, I dont know If I did well removing my grip, putting another one and removing a kind of a plastic glued to the racquet while I was removing the grip.
Now I wish to be more carefull, I am going to buy 2 BLX Surge, I just want to know If I have to change the grip, If I do what should I be carefull about when doing it.

You can find vids on you tube to guide you. Personally I just use overgrip it's very easy to do easier than taking off and replacing the primary grip.

Don't worry about it too much, Just start at the bottom and wrap it around, overlapping by about 1/8 inch or so. Overlap it as much as you can without having the edges stick out in ridges. Anyway, it isn't strictly necessary, Nadal uses a grip wrapped the right-handed way if I recall correctly. If it doesn't look right, you can unwrap it and start over in any case.
