    I was gonna ask the same question as the OP, but I was always told to search for similar old threads first before making a new one. :twisted:

    I must sell my RNC since I now work in LE and you know how the RC is not a legal move in that line of work.

    Would you consider a trade? Gogoplata and a match with the GI Ho?

    I thought Minotauro invented the anaconda less than 10 years ago. Wait... Are you actually Nog?

    Watch out for suspiciously low-priced ones from Argentina...they may be part of the swag stolen from a certain overweight pro. Be very wary if they are stained with powdered sugar!

    I may need to buy one of my friends one of these for Christmas.

    His game is deteriorating.

    LOL That's awesome. Great to see this ancient thread surface again. One of the best ever. Oh by the way, If Ronaldo wants to unload his Gogoplata, can I find a buyer for my twister? Will pay top dollar for a decent triangle-armbar combination.

    There is a minor surcharge if the non-dominant hand is Eastern, slightly higher if it's Continental.

    I'm concerned...I'm seriously considering investing in one of these grips but a prominent Tour player who uses one has a nervous tic I don't want to develop. Has anyone out there switching to these begin to suffer from a need to adjust their gluteus Maximus between points and even before second serves??? Could it be an allergic reaction from the material?

    LOL and I believe he smells his finger too...as well as fixing every hair on his body. Those western grips must put off some static electricity!

    Roddick is selling his old western grips although they appear to be on the semi-western side. Perhaps he can give the buyer a discount since his grips haven't been really useful since 2003.

    Sorry, too schwetty! Although, I may be interested in some of the later versions if they can be documented to be installed by Brooklyn!

    You can probably get them at the same place where pitchers buy those breaking balls.

    Taking a page from Bill Tildon. One of the all time great players and a bonafide deviant, with the charming nickname "Stump Finger". All true.

    Sorry to say, but Eastern grip are really hard to find these days. Maybe on the bay or ask some old pros like Lendl or Becker if they have any to sell now when they dont use theirs any longer :twisted:

    Is there a SouthWestern grip available to aid all those players in the draw Down Under? If so, would it be wrapped in a reverse direction?:)

    I'm down to my last pair of eastern grips and I can't find anymore. Seems like they're out of production.

    Aussie grip is best.

    With the thumb down under. It's better than strange.

    Was at Indy Wells this week. In addition to balls, they were heaving western grips after each match.
