    Hi guys and gals ! :)

    Might anybody know which place sells the Karakal PU Super Grips in Singapore?

    I prefer tacky grips and i've tried various brands like Ashaway, Babolat, Prince, Wilson etc...
    Since Karakal grips are quite recommended here, i thought i'd give it a try.

    Thanks in advance all. ;)

    Hi there ..... thanks for the tip !

    Was at Queensway Gala Sports last week, saw the 'Karakal' box there ...... but to my dismay it was empty ! :(
    the guy told me that they were out of stock for quite some time now, i wonder why?

    Maybe will have to go recce all the shops there the next time. :)

    A try that you won't regret. After being using it for more than a decade, honestly it's the best PU grip around;)

    i can get them for RM6 each provided quantity more than 5, i need to ask how much is postage depending on the quantity
    i can be middleman for free as long as you can come to Taman Universiti to get it from me
    and of course, payment first
