    Where can i get it in Singapore other than the ebay? Yonex AC-102
    Hope 30wraps is cheaper than 10x 3wraps (10 x $10).

    why do you even want to buy supergraps in the first place? they are really terrible grips.

    go to ebay and look for RKEP G09. one of the best grip ever made. and cheaper than supergraps.

    Isn't the Yonex AC-102 one of the world's best selling racket grips? I even heard it's popular in the tennis community. I'm not the biggest fan of yonex grips but I would never say "they are really terrible grips."

    Different ppl have different preference. :) RKEP G09 is not available in shops unlike supergraps.

    Hi Bro ..... :)

    While that is very true .... maybe you should, at least, give the G09's a try.

    I'm currently using the G09L (Long Version) for all my rackets and i absolutely love them !
    They're my go-to grips for all my rackets at the moment, and i suspect for a long time to come too. :D

    .... and at approx SGD$1.16 per grip, they're very very affordable.
    If you like, i can spare you one overgrip to try out. :p

    With import tax and other fees it's a little expensive to have grips shipped to Denmark so I guess I'm gonna have to stick to yonex or towel grips. :(

    I do believe they can send it as a gift, many people that sell off ebay will do that. Also if you buy 30 of the RKEP 009, isn't that under 50 dollars US? Taxes won't be that much.

    In Canada, I bought 30pk Yonex Supergrap for $50+12%tax = $56. I bought 24pk RKEP G09 for $16+$7shipping = $23. Price point for Yonex Supergrap is $1.86/grip. For RKEP it is $0.96/grip (actually less since I bought other stuff as well). So even with shipping costs...you can buy 2 RKEP grips for the price of 1 Yonex Supergrap.

    Another point to consider is which product you like more. Another factor is that the RKEP G09 grip weighs about 0.9g heavier than Yonex Supergrap if that matters to you. While it weighs slightly more it lasts longer (as per testimony from fellow posters).

    The supergraps are overpriced in Singapore. If you have friends going to Bangkok, they could purchase the supergraps (3 grips) for S$6-S$8 each. Or buy online from tennis warehouse (30 grips cost US$31 plus US$7.50 shipping)
    http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/catpage-YONEXOG.html

    Alternatively you could try the Wilson Pro overgrips which are similar imho. I read in this forum that its from the same factory producing the supergraps.

    Same here. RKEP grips have the best price/performance ratio.

    ^^Buy RKEP grips online from EBay (it's the only way). Or find somebody in Malaysia that will give 1 for you to try.

    I love how the RKEP G09 have no brand marking on it. And it looks so tacky as well. Definitely gonna get some from them. Anybody in Malaysia interested in group purchase?

    If you need, I have around a dozen or more of the RKEP overgrips left. RM40/dozen or RM25/half dozen. COD in PJ. Though expensive, I myself prefers the SuperGraps and stocked truckloads of them...:D
