CHAMPION GRIP This aerosol spray is an excellent alternative to toothpaste tube grip polish such as Betts, Grippo and Willgrip (q.v.).The main advantage being that it is crushproof and won't split in your bag under pressure. Your clothing can be safely stored alongside the Champion can. Because the spray is much finer than the toothpaste type of grip polish, a little goes a long way - no greasy smears on your ppolishing cloth either.
The most popular bowls cream for pre-game tuning of your bowls. Best applied after washing and drying the bowls.
We have had customers who come and say they don't want Grippo because they don't want to polish their bowls and the tube says 'Bowls polish'.
We at the shop sympathise - after all, when you polish something it becomes all shiny and slippery. Frankly it's a marketing mistake by the good people at Henselite who are losing sales because some customers in our shop think they should only buy this product when they hang up their wets for the last time and prepare to lock their favourite Tiger Pros in a glass case for their great grandchildren to admire.
HOWEVER - there is a twist - or rather true grit - in this polish as our lab tests have confirmed. As well as looking shiny, bowls which receive an application of Grippo, buffed and rubbed conscientiously, acquire a rubbery friction, as if a monkey from a latex tree had licked the bowl's circumference and set it to dry in the tropical sunshine. In short - it does what it says on the tube.
What can we say about Betts grip that hasn't been said already? Oh, I know - don't brush your teeth with it if they are natural and don't try fixing your falsies with it if they aren't. Other than that, it really has all been said.
Oh, just a mo..... OK, my colleague Denise tells me that there is more to say, but only after a few cans of Fosters....
Tackifying cloth, no mess grip enhancer for the strongest, cleanest control of your bowl. Keep a firm grip on your game!
