I searched the thread and found no mention of waxing your sticks (watch it boys). I was going thru a period of losing my grip when the meter topped 140 so bought some Zildjen wax... and man what a difference (beats the hell out of duct tape)! Its like the sticks really stick to your hands. I wonder if I'm the only one lame enough to need this grip enhancement? Do any of you have other ideas on improving grip? I'm doing a few stamina exercises to help the grip, such as the 'pyramid of pain' and Roddy's 10 minute killer (don't know what it's called), but nothing has helped more than the wax. Just curious if I'm alone in this and what other things I might do to help.
