Colour Bleed on Multiple Coloured Grips
Due to the manufacturing process (which involves vulcanisation of the grip to a required temperature, altering the rubber to a state required in a cricket bat grip), bleed on colour joins is possible and to be expected. The degree of bleed depends on the texture of the grip with players matrix lite and dynamite quite susceptible, scale, octopus and other highly textured less so.
