as i don't tend to sweat much, i dislike stick grip aids. there is nothing that can replace the feel of the wood of the stick. any grips for drumsticks make them feel unnatural and sluggish.

I've tried the UniGrip, and ProMark stick wrap, both are nice. I also use to use Hockey tape. I don't use tape any longer due to stick size, style and I switch back and forth between traditional and match grip. Tape doesn't work well for that.
