Hi all,

I recently got a Shrike from RMJ. Lovely item, but I wanted the grip to be a bit gripper. I thought about hockey tape or something similar, so I was looking around online and came across a product called "Sniper Skin". It's a shrink-fit grippy plastic sleeve that they advertise for going around bat handles, hockey sticks, golf grips, etc. Not sure how durable it's going to be, but I thought I'd give it a shot. They have a TON of different styles.... I chose one of the Golf Club grips, and it seems like the right size. It comes with a rubber o-ring to put at the "end" of the grip, along with vibration-dampening foam you can put on before you shrink the grip on. If you look at the pic, you can see the ring at the bottom, and you might be able to make out the slight increase in diameter where the foam is. Anyone else tried these things?
Below is it on my Shrike:

That is pretty cool 👍. I’m definitely interested in hearing your feedback after use.

Looks like more of a classic hammer style shape now. I bet it’s comfortable.

I usually just use self -fusing silicone tape as a wrap , but it's not very durable at all .

I've been looking for something tougher . Might give this a try .
