In this review I will write some about the new cushion grip coming from VT Advantec with their revolutionary Anti-Vibe technology (read more about it here). I have previously reviewed other products from them which you can check out by clicking on these links: Leather Grip – “Lead” Strips. I’ve tested this new grip on the exact same racquet (Head Extreme Tour “Prototype”) as in previous tests to make it as equal as possible.
From “VT Advantec Leather Grip – Why use a leather grip? Product Review“: The material used is called the VT Smart Layer and it is made by world class scientists, engineers and technologists. The results shown on the court was a cushioned impact with a more stable feel, consistent feel and a reduced level of effort that was still providing good power.
I found the same result as in the previous review, only becuase it is the same technology used. The only thing different is the outer material against my hand. I preffered this one over the leather grip since I use similar grips on my own racquets. I can’t say which is better, it is highly personal and depending on what feel you’d like. The technology works, it does what it says. Can I recommend it? Hard to say. I think it is again very personal. I didn’t enjoy it as much as I’ve heard others do. As I’ve mentioned before this can replace a dampener in terms of dampening but the main reason why I use a dampener is to remove the “ping” sound which this grip won’t do for you. By dampening I mean less vibration and not less touch etc.
Thank you for reading this short little review, I hope it was enough and keep having an awesome day, bye! I would be even happier if you wanted to check out my Instagram and maybe also subscribe to my Youtube channel 🙂
