I was wondering if there are any basegrips for lefthanders, that you can wrap around clockwise seen from the buttcap?

No and Yes.

No: I have not ever seen grips for left-handers.

Yes: I used to wrap all my grips in the other direction. I also did this for top-ranked juniors when I was string racquets.

I would purchase two-handed (Fairway) leather grips. These are longer than standard grips. Then I would cut the grip with scissors at opposite end to form a taper for starting the grip in the opposite direction. This shortened the grip only very slightly, because the finishing end would normally be trimmed anyway.

I am really glad you reminded me of this. I had completely forgotten. Thanks.
