    Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy still owns the patent on western grips so you can probably find the best western grips for sale there. You may want to post your used eastern grips on Robert Lansdorfs classified section.

    Guys......this is almost 2 years old.

    Yes, it's funny, but we shouldn't revive old threads unless they indeed have helpful information.

    Hey guys can you help me out?

    I bought a western grip on E-b-ay and I think it might be fake.

    On first glance it looks real but when I play with it, I get no topspin.

    Is there a way to tell if a grip is fake?

    I'll try to post pictures later on. I gotta go to my class.

    Thanks for your help.

    That is absolutely the funniest post in this thread!!!

    Does anyone know where to add lead to the Asian Grips to make them heavier... but retain their mid point balance?

    It's not just that it's beating a dead horse; it's not proper forum etiquette.

    He started a thread... if you don't like it... don't read it. Fun threads build the community too.

    You should be able to get one in South America or Spain. I'm pretty sure everyone there has them.

    That's quite clever of you. Now imagine if you could actually buy a grip called the Western Grip? :)

    I think you should try those stores which sell car tires. I've seen them advertise Continental, so probably they have the Western ones too!

    I'm looking to buy some topspin. I heard that it really helps if your shots are all over the place, and my coach thinks highly of it. I know a few who managed to acquire this item, and they are very consistent now. I did a Google search, but all I could find were some video games. Also, I think it also comes in a 'heavy' variety, which is more expensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It's almost 4 years since this joke has started. Why are we still joking about buying a western grip? Couldn't someone lock this thread?

    Sorry to bump, but this is still one of the funniest threads I've ever read.

    Whether or not the OP was serious or not, It still made me crackup.
