Stainless PT grip rusting


Recommended Posts

Some grades of Stainless will rust, especially if there is salt around, such as from sweat.  


What makes Stainless resist rust is a rather clear and tightly adhering Chrome oxide layer, which prevents any more oxygen reaching the steel.  If something removes the chrome oxide layer, and/or prevents it from forming, you will have rust.  


I have no experience with that model.

Have you contacted PT? That's where I'd start. Chances are they'd make it right  

What are they supposed to do? It's a steel grip being soaked in sweat all the time. It's gonna rust. Stainless or not It's gonna rust. Just wipe down with oil and let it sit for a bit then wipe clean.
