Interesting. I haven't seen that before. From the picture, it just looks like a piece of soft leather.

All you do with the Vic Grip is rub it on the butt end of the sticks. It isn't like a grip tape or stick dip.

I'm more a fan of proper grip than grip enhancers.

Ah, those. I thought you meant the pad. :)

Just learn how to hold your sticks properly.

Has anyone tried them all, Pro Grip? Vic Grip? Uni-Grip? Stick Stuff Grip?

Please help with your ideas and interest in my, "First of its Kind" Water-based grip so you can dip your own drumstick of choice. See link below V
