  • Re Gripping

    Hello everyone. I want to re grip my sons Easton Stealth bat. I see I can get the Easton grips at like Sports Authority. Is there any tricks to doing this that I might need to know about? Also, what kind of tape do they use at the top of the grip? It almost looks like electrical tape. Any help on all the materials I would need to do this would be greatly appreciated. I have never re gripped a bat before. Thanks.

    Buy a few of these grips, as the first time you do it probably wont be too pretty. You'll see that you have ti wrap it pretty hard.

      Oddly, they just showed a segment on making metal bats on "How it Works"....yep, that top piece IS electrical tape on them.

      Any brand of grip you use, it's pretty much all the same. Start at the knob, wrap around the bat at a slight angle so it "swirls" up around the handle. Then use a small piece of the electrical tape (in a matching color, if you get the colored grip) to make it even around the top.

      It helps to mark the top, too (pencil works, and it's easy to rub off before you add the electrical tape) as it's illegal to wrap it up "too high up", but I forget the specific length for legal wrapping.
