I have the opposite problem. When i've used grip sticks (both Dolomite and x:60), my bottom hand essentially sticks to the shaft with no freedom. Whenever i'm making a move close to my body and i want my bottom hand to move freely up or down the shaft this becomes a serious problem. It drives me nuts.
As a result i'm much more comfortable with non-grip sticks. I do like some grip on my shaft however, so i put about 4-6 strips of tape about 6-8 inches apart down the shaft. This gives me different gripping points, but allows my bottom hand to smoothly ride up or down to the next piece of tape.
