Applying a Replacement Grip to Your Pickleball Paddle
The benefits of using a replacement grip include added cushioning versus the original factor grip, improved ergonomics, sweat absorption, tackiness, and an inexpensive way to fine tune your pickleball paddle and adjust to your grip size.
Let’s get started! The first thing you will want to do is take your replacement grip and remove the finishing tape and set it aside. Unroll your full grip and you will notice that one side near your ONIX logo is tapered, this is the bottom of the grip. You will want to take the backing off the adhesive strip. To begin wrapping your grip, you will want to take the bottom side of the grip and line it up with the bottom of the butt cap. We will then do one complete turn, keeping the bottom of the grip along the edge of the butt cap.
For our second turn, we will start to move our way up. On our subsequent turns, we are going to try to line up the grip and overlap it with our previous turn by about an eighth of an inch. As we work our way up, if we get off track, we can always go back and recorrect. When you get to the top, depending on the length of your handle, we may need to cut away the excess of our grip. To do that, you will just want to take a regular pair of scissors and cut a perpendicular line with your grip. To finish, we will take our finishing tape, peel off the adhesive backing, and wrap the finishing tape around the top of our paddle. That completes the process!

Applying an Overgrip to Your Pickleball Paddle
The benefits of using an overgrip include improved ergonomics, sweat absorption, tackiness, and an inexpensive way to fine tune your pickleball paddle.
Let’s get started! Our first step would be to remove the finishing tape from our overgrip and set it aside. We want to unroll our overgrip and at the red tab, remove the protective film from your overgrip. You will notice the adhesive strip at the bottom that will hold your overgrip in place as you’re starting. Starting at the bottom of the paddle, aline the bottom of your overgrip at the butt cap and make one complete turn. With each subsequent turn, we will start moving our way up.
As we near the top of the paddle, you will want to manage the overlap distance to utilize the entire grip. For our last step, we will take our finishing tape and remove the adhesive backing. We will apply the finishing tape to the top of the paddle. That completes the process of installing your overgrip!
