    I'm relatively new to tennis. I started playing about 8 months ago. My grip is worn out/torn up. I have a Head Speed MP 300, 4 1/2. I got it second hand and the grip is missing chunks. I want to replace it. Where do I start? What is important? I like the feel of what is left of the grip, but I'm open to grip that offers great feel.

    No recommendation on the under grip but do 2nd the overgrip idea. I've tried a fair number of those recommended on the board. Volkl BioFeel blows them all away of the ones I've tried. Baffles me why TW carries Volkl overgrips but not that one. Quite of few of my regular tennis group use it now. Good durability, just a touch tacky but still easy to change grip position while playing and holds up well to sweat. I know a lot about the last feature! (Though I also use the Price Grip Plus stuff on my palms which is a big help)

    Thanks for the advice. I wasn't sure exactly what grip is on it. It's a white Head grip. I have been using over grips since I got it, but the grip itself is getting missing chunks and it feels "wrong" sometimes. Actual wrong, or mentally wrong, not sure, but it definitely gets into my head when I play at times. I have enough work to do only my technique without grip phantoms creeping in too.

    I will definitely give the Volkl over grips a try after I replace the grip.

    Wilson Shock Shield is excellent.

    Actually, just tried out Dunlop Leather and immediately ordered another one for my second racquet. Really nice.
