    I used Kimony over grip. Kimony grip is very tacky when it is brand new.

    I usually put two rackets inside the badminton bag. (But sometimes three rackets.) After playing with a new set of over grip for a few sessions (with each session lasting two hours), the grip loses its tackiness. I at least play twice a week, but sometimes four times a week.

    Why the grip loses it tackiness so fast? I don't understand.

    Why? Is it because

    A) one grip rubbing against another grip
    B) Dry hands
    C) Kimony overgrip is too thin
    D) It is normal to lose tackiness after a few sessions
    E) none of the above

    thanks... P30606-212046.jpg

    i use Toalson Ultra grip and it's very tacky on the first session, normal tacky the next 5-7 sessions, then becomes more dry than tacky, but OK for a few more, especially with some sweat on the handle.
    RKEPs G09 are about to be delivered, but I believe the situation will be about the same with them.

    swunk, thanks. I tried Toalson before in the past. It's very good. But it's not easy to find in Hong Kong. I am now trying Victor GR218. Hope it's good.
