    Help: Attack twisters grip replacement

    I run Attack twisters with my XTR 9sp set up, but the grips on the Attack shifters are worn out. Once upon a time you could buy replcement grips for the shifters, but I have done quite a bit of searching and can't find any. Does anyone know where I might be able to find some? My only other option may be to buy new shifters. Thanks.

    I'm in the same boat. I've searched and searched. I even called some stores and they say that none of the X line grips will fit. Has anyone changed these grips out?

    you could buy a set of MRXcomps for real cheap and rob the grips :thumbsup - I think the shape is great.

    I've got a pair of X.O.'s that use a different grip and attachment mechanism compared to X.9's or X.7's (which I stupidly bought without knowing this) so you might need to check compatibility.

    I gave up looking and made my own out of electrician's tape. No perfect, but working.

    If you were to go a tape route, I'd go with self-amalgamating (mastic) tape - it has a nice rubbery consistency.

    ^^^ also (I just thought of it) when building your grip profile, you may try under-laying some toothpicks or bamboo skewers (cut to length) to get a more hexagonal shape if desired.
