    i use karakal grips. i tried 3 types, the PU super grip, Kumfy grip, and the groovy grip. I didnt really like them except for the PU super grip, so far is my first choice grip for badminton.

    Half of the players in my club use them.

    I just tried using one myself for the first time.
    I've only played three times with the new grip, but I'm very please with it so far. :)

    Mine is a PU Super Grip Duo. ;)

    yup, i having been using the PU supergrip for quite a few years now.
    mainly because they're the best grips i can find easier in malaysia for a decent price.
    they do lose tackiness after a couple of months though, by which time they should be changed anyways.

    Yonex Super Grab and Karakal Pu grips are the top on my list.

    However, i prefer the Karakal Pu anytime i love them...The are tacky and rubbery..it is awesome..

    I agree, alot of my friends are using karakal grips too. Its the most popular at the shop that i go to, finish quite fast especially black coloured ones.
