Hi Alois and Jeff,
I was watching a video where the guy was discussing the tackiness and grip of two rubbers.
For the grip test, he put a metal tuning fork on the rubbers and tried to rotate the blade 360 degree.
For the tackiness test, he pressed the rubbers on a ball, and counted how long the ball stuck to the rubber.
I can't really see the difference between tackiness and grip, because I feel that they are the same?
I think tackiness refers to how tacky the rubber is on the surface. The rubber can also grip the ball by wrapping around it on impact. I don't know the Physics of it exactly. Perhaps someone with more knowledge can help out.
