    It doesn't say how thick the grip is on the packaging but it is similar to a yonex Towel grip.
    Havent reviewed the grip yet might do.

    I just bought Li Ning Towel grip at Quensway and Yonex Towel grip at Far east. The thickness of Li Ning GC010 is same as Yonex AC 402 EX.

    If you want the thin towel grip, you can try Yonex AC204 slim or AC402DX

    Li Ning towel grip is very thick.
    You must apply it on barewood unless you have monster hands or something.

    Got some grips from Badminton Nation to try out: the GP101, GP102, and GP108.

    Here's a description of the grips from one of their Market Ninjas:

    GP101 – this is what the china national team uses. Best of the bunch hands down. As with a lot of great products they don’t last nearly as long.
    GP102 – this is actually a “ribbed” grip. Preferred by some but makes your grip much bigger. Interesting grip, some swear by it but most people cant get used to it.
    GP106 – Grips with texture surface which prevents slippage. Lots of color options.
    GP108 – your general run of the mill grips.


    The only one I have tried so far is the GP101 which is supposed to be the best. It has stayed tackier for longer than Super Grap does, which is good. Super Grap tends to adopt a dry feel pretty quickly. I haven't found the GP101's to have significantly more cushioning though.

    Another minus to the GP101 is its very expensive price. $5 for one, that's hitting replacement grip territory.. I guess one has to decide whether the quality or price is more important when choosing between this one and the standard Super Grap.

    GP101's are definitely better than Super Grap and will be replacing them for me. Durability is better so it can make up for the higher price. Disclaimer: I have not yet tried my soon-to-be-incoming RKEP G09 Elites, which could very possibly displace the GP101's.

    Hey guys. Are there any very original replacement grips by Li-Ning? I mean the grips which are already put on the rackets when newly bought.
    I'm looking for the replacement grip of N55.

    GP 306 is horrible, only lasts for 3 sessions at max and the surface starts to peel of and lost its tackiness. If you pull it too much during the wrapping process, the whole surface is destroyed and it's not even tacky.

    I like GP51 though, durable and tacky, lasts my for at least 1 month which is around 8+ sessions at least
