HOW DO I CHOOSE A GRIP? THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY STRINGS TO CHOOSE FROM.
IT'S NOT DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE WHAT IS THE BEST GRIP FOR YOUR RACQUET. WE ARE HERE TO ASSIST YOU IN MAKING THE SELECTION PROCESS GO EASILY.
GRIPS COME IN MANY VARIATIONS. BESIDES STANDARD SYNTHETIC GRIPS, THAT COME ON MOST RACQUETS TODAY, WHICH ARE MADE OF RUBBER WITH A FELT
BACKING. MATERIALS SUCH AS LEATHER & CALFSKINS ARE QUITE COMMON. THERE ARE ALSO SYNTHETIC SUEDE GRIPS, LATEX & SILICONE RUBBER GRIPS. THE
SURFACE TEXTURE AS WELL AS THICKNESS MUST ALSO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. THESE INFLUENCE HOW GRIPS PERFORM, DEPENDING THE UPON CONDITIONS
THEY FACE WHILE IN USE.

PLAYERS WITH SWEATY HANDS ARE OFTEN BETTER SERVED BY CERTAIN TYPES AS COMPARED TO THOSE WHOSE HANDS TEND TO BE MORE DRY. SOME PREFER
THAT GRIPS HAVE A TACKY FEEL, WHILE OTHERS PREFER A DRY SURFACE, EASIER TO TRANSITION ON DURING PLAY. THERE ARE CONTOURED GRIPS WITH RAISED
CENTER SECTIONS WHICH ARE MORE COMFORTABLE & EASIER TO MAINTAIN A GRIP ON FOR SOME, AS WELL AS GRIPS WITH ENHANCED CUSHION TECHNOLOGIES
FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM ARM PAIN. JUST LIKE SHOES, NO ONE GRIP IS PERFECT FOR EVERYONE. WE'RE HERE TO ASSIST YOU IN MAKING THE BEST CHOICE
FOR YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION.

"AUTHENTIC" FAIRWAY TENNIS GRIPS by Balmforth of England
These are not the currently marketed remakes! / See availability below.




Fairway Leather Tennis Grips by E.B. Balmforth of England

E.B Balmforth Ltd. of Leeds England was the manufacturer of Fairway Tennis Grips.
The company consisted of a farm where they raised their own cattle and a Tannery.
Production ceased in the late 90's and the land was sold for real estate development.
Contrary to an Urban Legend, the shut down was not due to a Mad Cow Epidemic.
No other tennis grip feels, lasts or performs like a genuine FAIRWAY Leather Grip.
Fairway Scams seem to be rampant on ebay, so we must warn you "Buyer Beware".

Other tennis retailers including Tennis Warehouse sell what they describe as Fairway Grips.
We consider them to be "Reproduction Fairways", as they're being manufactured today, decades
later by a the son of the Balmforth's, somewhere other than the Farm & Tannery (see above).
If you compare these current production grips marketed as Fairways & sold by many retailers
to originals made in Leeds, you will no doubt realize that they are 2 very different products,
with a different feel, although they certainly are made to look exactly like the original ones.
They even have the same Original Gold Fairway Gold Logo embossed on them. Tennis Menace
charges considerably more, for it's ORIGINAL Fairway Grips, and for a good reason.
Which Fairways do you want on your racquet?

Our Fairways, were made by the original Balmforth Tannery in Leeds England in the 90's.
They have been continuously stored in a temperature and humidity controlled safe. Fairways can
be "Cleaned and Retackified". Request instructions when purchasing. Be aware that Fairways came
in varying lengths & widths (1 inch = 25.4 millimeters). Be aware that there's no adhesive strip
installed on the back of Fairway grips. Use of an 18mm Narrow Crown Staple Gun, & either rubber
cement or double coated tape, is required to properly attach & stabilize them on a racquet pallet.
While the Photo shows all the grips we had at one time, only the ones with prices remain.

Gosen Sorbothane Grip System
The Gosen Sorbothane Grip System is the worlds most shock reducing racquet sports grip.
It reduces the amount of shock reaching your arm through the racquet handle interface.
Made of the same material, they're like a set of Dr. Scholl's Gel Insoles for your arm!
Add to that, They're Permanent, & value for the price becomes obvious. The System
utilizes 2 components; the Permanent Sorbothane Undergrip, & a layer or two of any
overgrip or your choice. The only maintainence required of you is replacement of the
outer layer of Overgrip, as you deem it is required.

The Genuine Gosen Sorbothane Grip System is available only from Tennis Menace.
Don't be fooled by others selling products called "GOSEN SORBOTHANE GRIP".
They are BLUE & come packaged as shown in the photo below. With both Gosen and
the Sorbothane Brand Name, If not, you're looking at a fake.

The proper installation of the Sorbothane Grip System is a rather problematic, unless
you are very familiar with the product and had experience installing them previously.
The Material is not anywhere near as strong as a regular replacement grip, & they do
not stretch. Even WE occasionally have problems getting them on properly, & often we
must toss the one's we were trying to install and open up another. Thus, normally we
will only sell them installed on racquets we sell, or racquets sent in to us for service.
If you are feeling lucky and choose not to heed our warning, we will sell Grips to you,
but once the packages have been opened, they are not returnable, for any reason! We're
willing to guide you or your stringer through the installation process by telephone and
can provide photo's of how it's properly done, however, we can't guarrantee that such
installation attempts (not done by Tennis Menace) will ultimately be successful.
