What can I do to the raptor grip?

Postby cmgee67 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 8:44 am

I would like to improve the traction of the raptor grip on my shockwave. I know i can buy talon grips for it but my beef with those is when it gets hot sometimes they slide around. I have seen some stipple the grip but I thought you can’t change the grips physical shape? I will prob cut a piece of bicycle inner tube and slide over the grip to give me a good purchase on it. Or can I even do that? Please shed some light on the subject guys and gals! Thanks!

There's actually quite a bit you can do to it, as long as you don't make it shorter.

What about gloves?

Saw that Hickock45 put some hockey stick tape on the end of his Shockwave. I think that's a pretty good middle ground between uncovered and Talon grips. If I didn't already have some in my hockey bag, I'd probably just order the Talon grips and be done with it, but I'll check out the hockey tape first since it's a short trip out to the garage.
