    I ended up using the white one. First impression is that it is a bit too tacky for me. A few games later, probably suck up enough dirt and sweat from my hand, now it feel just right for me. Durability-wise, it is definitely much better than AC102.

    THey all feel durable, Just the pink ones I have feel more tacky and have a more solid feel as kwun said. The white ones are differently good too, but I like pink. Heck Pink is for real men anyways. =P

    i like the the ultimate and elite but wish the ultimates were just a tad cushier. do you guys think the super soft would be a better choice, is it still tacky enough. i tried the elite over the ultimate it was a bit better but seem to affect the feel of the racket a bit more than i wanted.


    i would be willing to trade of afew of my ultimates for some super soft if anybody interested.

    and looking forward to the g09L for a tennis rackets.

    Just tried the power master from Eric, great grip. Was putting the g-11 overgrip prior
    so this eliminates the need for it. ;)

    So the Powermaster is more effective for sweaty hands than the Ultimate?

    Where else?
    will the G09L cost the same as the G09? also would it be possible to mix between G09 and G09L in an order?
    can't wait for the G09L to be available :)

    Did you notice that G09 white is out of stock now? Probably preparing for G09L white to become available.

    Since the first batch of G09L will be to test the market, probably the same pricing as G09?

    Ordered 10 RKEP overgrips, 5 G09, and the other half G11. Yet to test the G100, but had some chance to try some white G09 today, and even gave some to my friend to test. I must say, we both think it's way way way better than yonex white supergrap. :)

    I've been looking for grips for a while now that are good + affordable, then i stumbled onto RKEP through this thread.

    I've recently ordered a bunch of G11's to try, and I can't wait to receive them!

    If I have very sweaty hands, which RKEP grip would you guys suggest? Apparently I should go for red or white, which is fine because my racquet is that colour already. I haven't tried any yet, but I'm looking at the G09 and G11 since it's 10 grips = $10.95? That doesn't include shipping does it.

    Hi guys, North America (and worldwide if you wish), group buy is going to be completed on March 10, coinciding with the new stock at RKEP. If anyone is interested, I will be ordering 500+ grips, so please place your orders now.

    Then you might look for more comfort or more of a rubbery feel rather than tacky. Some people still prefer the tacky feel even though their hands are not overly sweaty.
