Can you purchase a new Racer 2 foam grip from Makro dealers? Thanks

I would email dilek about that.
I haven't seen them from dealers, but she may be able to help.
If you find out how to get new ones I you can protect them a bit. To protect mine I wrapped it with red coban wrap. The medical kind that only sticks to itself. Looks cool and also takes the wear. All my detectors now have it
Originally got it for a couple of my old tesoros that have worn down foam but now added it to them all.

Probably similar to coban wrap, I use the stuff known as Vet Tape. It comes in various colors and is pretty awesome. I have the foam handle of my R2 wrapped in several layers of camo for a better grip and the shaft is wrapped in black.

Yep. Mine is sold by a vet supplier. Called sensi-wrap. As a bonus comes in packs of 10, each sealed and sterile. In case I actually need to use it for actual medical reasons.
Down side is I don't get to pick the colors but it's only $12 for 10 3"x5 yard rolls. Gave the pink to my girlfriend haha. But I was able to color match my detectors a bit. Racer 2 gets red, if I do my relic it's light blue, purple for vaquero, green for cibola.
But I'd like to get the camo kind. That would be alot better. Couldn't beat the price though.

Try bicycle foam handle bar tape. It really increases the grip diameter which IMO is needed. Numerous youtube videos showing how to install it.

I am looking over my Racer 2 and wondering how I would go about replacing the factory grip IF I had one to replace it with. Doesn't look like a cake walk.
