    I bought 4 dozens and nearly 1/2 has been claimed in less than a week. At this price it is a really nice value grip.

    I had about 100+ Elites, now only 54 left. Friends just gobble them up because there so affordable when i told them. Very good grips and excellent pricing.

    If there is a longer version of G-09, I'll definitely order 50 of them. Go for it, Eric.

    We are negotiating with the factory whether they could offer longer version. If they really could that the name will be G09L.
    However, according to most badminton users oppinion that current length is very good for their use.
    Too long tape will need to cut some part off.
    But I know that tennis users will like it longer.....

    Eric, not to be pushy, but how long will it take?

    I'm looking to place a large order of overgrips and replacement grips for my tennis, badminton, and racquetball rackets, but I'd prefer a longer length for my tennis handles (grip size 4 5/8), so if it will be within a few months, then I will wait as I still have some in reserve.

    What07, let's combine orders to reduce shipping time and cost. Wanchai07, if you would like to participate too, let's get a huge group order going

    Eric I don't think there is a problem with having to cut some part off the tape as you have to do this with many grips or over grips that are already on the market. Better the tape is too long so you can cut to the desired length rather than be too short.

    A longer G-09 would be fantastic.

    I like tacky grips. The best grip I used so far is the RKEP G09 Elite.

    I have thoroughly tested my grips:
    elite, power master and ultimate
    all three of them were very tacky; elite, ultimate being noticeably tackier than the power master
    After 6 hours of play, there is a visible wear on the elite grip, I will liken this wear and tear to be on par with ac102 from yonex, but rkep is slightly more durable and markedly tackier

    the power master is probably my favourite right now, feel and durability is exactly what I need
    as well as having the right about of sweat management

    the ultimate grip is my least favourite among the three, but still highly recommended
    i've never noticed a sweat problem (except with lower quality bk grips) but with the ultimate i found myself wiping my hands 2 hrs into a badminton session

    conclusion:
    if you have average-sized hands, elite grip on a g4 racket is perfect
    power master on a g5 is good for me and probably my favourite set up
    So far, with 3 weeks of use all three grips are still quite tacky and very minimal wear

    email Eric directly via eBay. I do that all the time, last time I ordered about 50 grips and 50 packs of string.

    On that note, I'm getting ready to do a bulk order for next week, just going to do a final check before I order if anyone wants in, since no one has contacted me yet.

    e-mail him, but he refused to sell to me .... :D
    he asked me to order via Dink-a-lot .... :eek:

    I would like to buy 100 - 200 pieces of Power Master grip and to be sent to Malaysia .... I have no idea if I can share it with you ....
    I have the wholesale price for other grip but not for Power Master.
