Lizard Skins Bat Grips review, new designs and how to re-grip your bat
You’re up to bat. It’s a hot, humid day out and your hands are sweating profusely, even through your batting gloves. You step up to the plate, firmly gripping your bat preparing for a fastball to come right down the middle. The pitcher winds up and throws a heater right down the middle, a perfect pitch, the one you've been waiting for. You tense up, eyes on the ball, start your swing but feel something…. It's your hands slipping and losing grip! Before you can stop your swing or readjust, it's too late. As your bat starts to cross the plate, you miss the ball and your bat goes flying out of your hands.

This is one of the worst things that could happen when you’re up to bat!

How Do I Apply My New Lizard Skins Grip:

So you just purchased your new, stylish, comfy Lizard Skins Bat Grip and are wondering how to properly apply it to your bat. Below is Headbanger Sports’ OFFICIAL guide on a step by step process on how to apply your new Lizard Skins Bat Grip:

Step 1: Prepping Your Bat
Remove your old, worn grip. Be sure to clean all excess glue and debris off of the handle (the cleaner the better!)
Pro tip: Rubbing alcohol helps greatly with prepping the handle so the glue from your new grip will adhere properly and stay securely glued for years to come.

Step 2: How to start (Lefty VS Righty)
Depending on how you swing, whether you are a lefty or right handed hitter, will depend on how you start the wrapping process! This is crucial to the longevity of your grip and how the overall feel will be.
Left Handed Hitter: Lefty’s will have to start with the FINISHED side first and start wrapping CLOCKWISE. This direction will give the best durability and comfort for left handed hitters.
Right Handed Hitter: Right handed hitters will start normally and wrap COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
Now that you know how to start the wrapping process and what direction you’ll be wrapping, let's start applying your new grip.

Step 3: Wrap it up!
Start wrapping in the direction described above. The starting point should be where the knob and handle flushly meet.
Rotate the bat while removing the paper backing on your new Lizard Skins Bat Grip. KEEP TENSION and be sure you are overlapping the grip as you slowly work your way towards the barrel.
Once you hit the end of the grip, use some electrical tape to secure the end of the grip to the handle. Follow up with the finishing tape provided and VOILA! You’re done! Give a final, firm gripping all the way around the handle to make sure your new grip has been fully glued down.

Lizard Skins Review:

Based in Utah, the company Lizard Skins started their journey by making competitive biking handlebar grips. Being durable and Weather resistant, their grips provide tackiness and comfort for any rider. In 2012, Lizard Skins entered into the baseball and softball market. Confident that the transition would be a smooth one because grips for bikes and grips for baseball and softball are so similar, there was the same goal in mind: create a durable and comfortable grip for athletes. That momentum has continued to build as they have become a symbol of social status and creative style amongst younger players.

Lizard Skins Bat Grips provide a level of comfort that is great for removing a lot of sting on poor contact. The durability of their grips is terrific and is expected to last much longer than most pre-applied manufacturer’s tape. The aesthetic is unmatched by any other bat grip company to date along with a very large variety of over 200 colors and designs you'll never run out of a creative style for your bat. Here at Headbanger Sports, we carry a large selection of Lizard Skins Bat Grips, so come take a look and see how you can customize your bat and avoid sending your bat flying the next time you’re up to the plate.
