The number of grips you have on your bat will be determined by personal preference. As a rough guide all of the bat weights we have specified in recommendations are with one rubber grip. Each additional grip will increase the bat’s weight by one and a quarter ounces.
We do have double thickness rubber grips for those who like a thick handle or have big hands. These do weigh three ounces so add weight to the bat.
Increasing the number of grips raises the centre of gravity and improves bat speed, as well as the feel of the bat. Too many grips, however, can make the bat feel very heavy and seem ‘lifeless’. Most batsmen use either one or two rubber grips.
