    I bought a 30 pack of this from TW and after playing 2 hours my hands smelled weird. It kind of smells like sulfur...Anyway, I have never had this problem with any other grip before. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I smelled a brand new grip and the smell was still there. They must be putting some lotion or something on their grips. I think I'm going to go back to Yonex supergraps.

    Ya never know what the the Chinese are putting in that stuff.... probably a little sulfer, a little lead, some cancer causing plastics to make it look shiny... try not to lick your hand is my advice.

    Actually, I found out it was my Wilson BLX 6.1 tour 90.....

    According to JollyRoger the silicon in the BLX's handle has a unique smell.

    It smells a little weird. Not like sulfur though.

    It's still the best overgrip so it doesn't matter.
