    I just purchased this new grip from Victor and its one of the thickest P.U grip out there in the market. Its even thicker than Karakal super P.U grip.

    Its tackiness is superb and sweat absorbtion is top notch. I completed the whole session today without any slippery feel (also due to its new).

    What I liked best about this grip is its soft feeling (Karakal is a bit hard/solid feel) and lightweight. I wrapped my racket the same way (9 folds) and I gained about 2mm in overall bp.

    Here are some pics I took compared with Karakal:

    What do you meant by padded? Are you referring to the additional foam put in like the Prince grip?

    Its the exactly the same type of grip like the Karakal super P.U but just thicker.

    After using this grip for a month now, I would say the Victor is more durable than Karakal.

    This has got to do with the grade of PU used on the grip which resulted an extreme tacky feel even when your palm is covered with sweat slightly. Besides, its thicker and offered a softer feel which makes your gripping more comfortable on a long and hard session.

    Especially recommended for those with tennis elbow and arm injuries as this super thick grip helps in reducing impact vibration.

    +1..agree.
    it's more sticky when playing halfway due to the sweat and dust. not sure if it will have similar effect for super sweaty palms
