    replacement grip or overgrip?

    for replacement, try Karakal PU Super. They have many colours to choose from. I think Black or white will suit the Edgesaber10 well.

    Overgrip, Yonex super grap, i will go for pink for the edgesaber10.

    White AE102EX on your NCTUFF 8 and Red AE102EX on your Arc10 otherwise, Alpha overgrips of the same colors would work.

    Yellow is good for the NT-8. White or Red for the 2nd one.
    But if you want to use Karakal, go for the ones that involve Black in them.

    yes, i agree with jymbalaya. White is for everything. almost all my racquets are covered with white overgrips either from Wilson or Toalson.

    Does Toalson makes badminton grips or are you using the Tennis ones? I mean, it's not a bad idea, but it might make your racket heavier, right?

    I'm using Toalson Ion overgrip.

    http://www.toalson.co.jp/ENGLISH/a2_ionpower.html

    they are pretty thin & tacky.

    Do you have any suggestions for the colors? I know in other brands like Yonex, Kimoni, Alpha, etc, the colors in grips make a world of differences. The dyes chance the effect of the tackiness and the durability.

    Whatever it is, do not use any green, blue or black on the ES10. I like white the best but if you want something striking, try bright yellow.

    wow did you use nails and drill it into your walls to display your rackets?
    or is the pic inverted?
    anyway i like the white and still have not decided yet.

    Haha, silly. You can see the date on the right side of the picture facing that way too. This means that if the picture were up right, the rackets would be quite normally lying on a table. They're just put into the picture really neatly. :p

    It's on a table, he took it slanting. If you are using a laptop, then tilt the screen a bit!:p

    well,for ur es 10 i will suggest white is the best..bt if you do affraid that it would be dirty easily..another colour is red..as for the yonex..the colour i suggest is also white because ur racquet come in light colour..bt if u feel lik try other colour..i suggest that u deside wat colour string u want to put on it n choose the same colour grip with your string..it will luk nice that way 2..
