    Please let me know if anyone is able to order anything from that page.

    Looks like a bad joke.

    did you ever have any luck with this ?
    I did not . It would be great not to cut up a 25 dollars sorbothane grip just to make one but I might have to just to try it out .

    I am a user of power V grip (PVG) I but want to go for a thinner version (PVG II). The website seems non functional.
    I tried to use double sided tape and etc but they are not good as the PVG as it is made of Sorbothane. Double sided tape is a bit harder and also rough when the racquet twists in the arm.
    Anyone know of ways to get Power V grip II ?

    There seem to be a guy selling strips of sorbothane on **** . You can also buy the real sorbothane grip on **** as well and use a strip of that up one side of your grip you will Need to wrap it after attaching otherwise it will eventually twist off or deform with the grip VS the black strips that are for sale.

    The best option for time being seems to be to create your own. Sorbothane strips from online ( I bought from amazon) and cut it to the shape based . If you have access to more sophisticated machinery, the dimensions are available on the non functional website.

    I tried it and it isn't bad.

    This kind of grip intrigues me. Like most I hit a semi-western to western forehand, and this looks like it could be interesting to try. How does it work with a continental backhand and a 2-hand backhand? And does it help with volleys? My backhand volleys are solid but I find that the racket twists a bit too often on the forehand volleys. I wonder if this would help.

    It looks like I'd have to make this myself like Dark Knight did. Doesn't seem to hard. Just use mounting tape cut to the right size and then wrap over it?

    Continental backhand is fantastic with it ...really powers up your stroke and far more stable . But if you really want continental then try it on the serve .....WOW!!! BOMB!!!!

    Two handed backhand ? I actually put a second wedge for the supporting hand . I use TWO wedges . Really powers up the stroke .

    Volleys ....again WOW....get ready for some great angles .

    Seniwest is a power up as well.

    ******Caveat: there is a very large learning curve . Because of all the extra power you will be spraying balls all over the place and losing matches left and right for about three months .
    Another thing you must be careful about is to make your decision very quickly because if you stick with
    It then you won't be able to go back to a normal grip ever again .

    Two wedges. Voww. Wouldn't that add to grip size. I'm a long time user of power V but only use 1. Especially when serving, wouldn't the second wedge get in the way of gripping properly?
