    Hi guys
    I m currently using yonex replacement grip but it becomes slippery as I swear alot. I won't be able to play properly then. I was thinking of getting g08 or g 10 but was wondering is it necessary to change my replacement grip. I was thinking should I replace it to karakal replacement grip.
    What do you guys think?

    Add an overgrip over your stock grip if you need a bigger handle. Replace your grip with overgrip if you need a smaller handle and replace the stock grip with replacementgrip if the sizing fits you. :)

    if you're happy with the size, then just replace the overgrip. naturally overgrips wont last as long as replacements because they are thinner - they cannot soak up as much sweat before becoming saturated.

    You're playing in MAS, so towel grip may be your best option. Whereas for us in northern hemisphere, G10 or G08 is fine.

    I still prefer Overgrip the most. I don like sticky stains on my racket handle. It's annoying :mad:
