    Thanks for sharing and I give a damn whether Murray uses a black replacement grip or not

    I was also interested in knowing, nothing is useless on this board.

    Murray uses a black karakal PU replacement grip. He has it gripped with no ridges so it lies completely smooth.

    yep, he has used karakal for years, if someone can find a pic from 2004/5 you will see. he only started using the tourna after he started working with brad gilbert. the pu grips are very common here in the uk, usually only costing £2.50 there a good, cheap option if you want to change alot and a nice feeling grip

    I just didn't really see how this *specific* piece of info was doing anybody any good, I personally do like knowing what kind of stuff the pros are using I personally just don't really give a crap what kind of *grip* they use because it affects me in no way

    I also thought for some reason that he was using leather. But hey, maybe it's just a PJ ;).

    Then don't comment and just move on. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

    I lost all interest in Murrays endorsements/equipment when he moved from Fred Perry to Adidas. Still like him to win Wimby though.

    Some of his FP's clothes were ugly. No desings, just fade colors with a little logo on the chest.

    I'd quite like to try this grip but I can only buy it in boxes of 25. Wondering if it would be a cheaper replacement for the Head Hydrosorb grip which I currently use. Would like to try one out.
