    I have a head racquet, and this bit of rubber recently broke. I use Wilson pro over grips, and these look bad as the tape has writing on it. Can I buy these anywhere?

    Or you could use simple electrical tape instead of Wilson tape?

    Thanks for the reply. I have thought about that, but I prefer the look of the rubber thing.

    I would try and get my hands on the HEAD rubber part# TGK276.33 - that's the Made in Austria version. Later part# TGK279.38 was the Czech version.

    I won't even begin to tell you the elastic properties of the Chinese version. Rumour has it some longtime HEAD pros swore by the grip holding qualities of the MIA version and could instantly tell if it wasn't the real deal. Make sure your one is.

    A guy on the bay charges an arm and a leg for them.
