Grips- where can i buy them?????

While i was watching Queens on TV, the commentators started talking about forehand 'grips', calling them Eastern, Western FH grips.
id like to know, how do grips affect players shots and where do they buy them??
are they expensive( and only pros can buy them) or anyone can?
also whats the difference between, lets say, Eastern or Southern grips????

Eebex.

They are referring to the way they hold the racquet, not a product, sweetie.

The forehand grip is the way that a player holds the racket when hitting a forehand stroke. The Continental FH grip is the least extreme, then the Eastern, Semi Western, Western and the most extreme is the Hawaian.
More extreme grips are better for producing shots with more topspin while less extreme grips are better for flatter shots.

P.S: Rofl at Southern grip
