The Importance of a Tight Pole Grip


Just for general purposes I thought of a little brain storming exercise.  I know GhostGrip can be used for a lot of different things from sports, to working with hand tools, to competitive shooting and playing your favorite video games on Wii, XBox 360, PS3, etc...  Then I thought, what about people that use poles.  Who uses a pole.  Let's see, fishermen, pole dancers, fireman, gymnasts, serious karaoke people (I've seen it done, jus sayin), pole vaulters, javelin throwers, martial artists, ninjas, and construction workers.  


 We Know Who Needs to Increase Overall Grip, but Why?


That's all I could brainstorm for now, besides one group of professonals I won't mention.  So why do these people need good pole grip.  A fisherman would need good pole grip just in case he gets surprised by the big kahuna.  It would be a shame if a trophy fish and an expensive pole and real got away due to sweaty hands.  What about pole dancers?  It looks like pole dancing is not only a form of art these days, but it's also a fitness trend.  I'd imagine that a set of dry hands would not only help you in not getting a concussion but also save your hands from some nasty blisters, ouch.  Speaking of pole dancers, I was watching a special on the Discovery Channel the other night, and believe it or not, firemen still slide down poles to get to the firetruck. 

I don't kow if pole dancing is an official form of gymnastics or not, but it should be.  However, although I don't know any of the official names off the top of my head, I'm sure there's some pole gripping going on in gymnastics somewhere.  Which brings us to our other two olympic sports.  A pole vaulter obviously needs good pole grip is s/he wants to clear the bar.  I'm sure the slightest slip for them could spell not only a failed attempt but danger.  How about javelin throwers.  I'd say the javelin pretty much qualifies as a pole when it comes to pole grip.  The better the grip the better the throw.  Which leaves us with our last two categories.


Serious Karaoke and Contruction Workers and Grip


I had to put these two in a category all their own.  Why?  Well, because these last two out of the list have other people at stake if their grip on the pole fails.  I know, firemen may fit this category, but they are in the immediate vacinity of professional first aid should their pole grip fail.  Serious Karaoke often takes place in a bar, where people have been drinking, so slipping on a pole here will draw laughs not medical attention.  Not only that, if your pole grip fails during your Karaoke routine, you'll disappoint your friends, not good.  Construction workers need good pole grip too because their mishandling of a pole could cause a safety hazard.  Not only are all the other construction workers interdependent, no body wants their roof to collapse 10 years later because the dude installing the support beam slipped up and put just a little to the left.  That goes the same for plumbers and natural gas, who handle a lot of pipes or poles, whatever you wanna call them.


Conclusion on Pole Grip


If throughout your day at some point you need to handle a pole, make sure  you get a good grip on the pole by using GhostGrip.



Liquid chalk is referred to as the lotion that acts as a preventive against the syndrome of excessive sweating which is also known as hyperhydrosis.

Chalk that is liquid helps in inhibiting the perspiration of your hands and feet. Chalk in its powdered form is often used as an antiperspirant. Liquid types of Chalk are also used for giving a good grip to your hands.

Advantages of using Liquid Chalk


There are several advantages of using Liquid chalk. Liquid chalk, to start with, is different from the balls of Chalk since it has non dust properties. It is something that is responsible for preventing the creation of a mess. The yoga practitioner is the person who must remember this fact in mind. The Liquid powders and solutions are used for various types of gripping purposes. If you want to go for an effective Chalk antiperspirant, it is best for going for the Ghost Grip lotion that allows you to fight sweaty hands.

Liquid chalk is used in a variety of sports as rock climbing, golf, bowling, gymnastics, and weight lifting. Chalk that is Liquid is made of non toxic components. Liquid chalk includes:


  • Magnesium carbonate
  • Thickening agent

Far from being a slippery substance, Liquid chalk is something that is in fact rather manageable. Chalk is thus toned down to go back to the liquid version which is indeed quite helpful for the players as well as athletes. Liquid chalks are used in various forms, one of them being the fluid one. It can be applied both to the hands as well as the feet for improving the grip of your hands as well as in the reduction of sweat.


Chalk Solutions

Chalk solutions alleviate the process of perspiration if it is spread on the ends of the yoga mat or applied on the hands and feet in minimal quantities. You can also focus on your training or competition, as the liquidation reduces dust inhaling, particularly while you are rock climbing. The lotion prevents sweat and enhances adhesion process without being shoddy. Liquidated chalks work in cold conditions.

Chalk powders are generally used as the traditional versions of the Chalk solutions and alcohol and acetone. Liquid soluble versions are used, although they are not as effective in prevention of soiling as the Liquid chalks. The watery chalks are powdered solutions that do not stain your clothing too. Moreover, you do not inhale it like the dust. The watery chalks are available to the users in the form of 250 ml plastic bottles which can also be resold. So, the solution to bettering the hand grip of a person is that you get liquidated Chalk. Other than helping reduce sweating to a great extent, it also improves physical grip and betters your performance.
