    I recently purchased a new Aero DrivePro GT and wanted to put my overgrip on it but I realized that the grip itself already had something that looked like a white overgrip. I believe this grip is called syntec but am not sure whether or not this is the pre-set/default overgrip. This led me to question whether or not the white grip is suppose to come off or not, so can someone clarify this for me? :confused:

    The overgrip goes over the grip ;)

    The white, squishy thing is the grip

    Hmm I see, so the syntec grip isn't suppose to come off then? I only presumed it would come off since it resembled a white overgrip so much. :?

    Nope, it stays :)

    However, you can pull it off if you'd like to and then just use an overgrip. That will make the handle quite a bit smaller and more firm.

    Well if I do take off the syntec grip, then do you know what is under it?

    My bad, I meant what do you see under the grip? Is it just a black handle or something? :confused:

    Generally, you see a tan or yellowish handle pallet (what you'll see on your Babolat) :)

    Just peel off the white grip and look. You can re-wrap it.

    In this video, the Head frame pallet is grey:

    Here is a pic of a racquet without its grip:
