There are 4 basic types of Badminton Grips: Over grips, Replacement grips, Soft grips and Towelling Grips
Soft Grips are by far the most popular grips for badminton and are an "in-between" type of grip. They are often used either as thicker over grips or as really thin replacement grips. Most badminton players use these to build up their grips slightly or to give extra cushioning, comfort and absorbency. The main brands featuring soft grips are Yonex, Karakal and Tecnifibre.
Towelling grips (available in the over grips section) have proved to be the most popular grips amongst the badminton pros. This is because they provide extra absorbency and a rougher texture, creating a firmer grip.
