    The Nano and King grip are significantly more tacky than the Super Soft.

    The RKEP grips are by far the best over grips i have ever used. They are tacky, long lasting and value for money.

    Been using the super nano grip for 1 month plus now. I am using the white color.

    As compared to the Karakal PU Super Grip, Nano grip is tougher and less tacky. It feels more like a tennis grip to me. But as the time goes on, i feel the grip become tackier but still Karakal is more tacky.(Depending on color too, yellow and light blue is the most tacky, too tacky in fact). Overall a good grip, I will still use it.

    Everything comes with price I guess. If you buy it at expensive price, it should last a little longer. But may smells. If you buy cheaper ones, it won't last that long but you get the chance to change it regularly. So, the price evens out eventually. I have many customers buying bulks from me so that they can change the colours regularly. Just like ladies changing their shoes... lol. ;)

    Based on all positive feedback above, I ordered some and tried it. Here are my 2c.

    The grip looks and feels like YY102. Initial feeling is almost the same, however, after sweating, it is not as tacky as YY102 to me.

    2nd, the length of PKEP is about 6in shorter than YY102. So for longer handle, if do 50% overlap, it is not enough.

    So for the same price, I still go back to YY102

    if you want them to be about $1 a piece, you will have to buy those 30-pack grips on ebay. i got them for about $28 total. the colors are really limited, only red, black, or white.

    Here local tennis / badminton stores carry 30pack for $28. Some online store also carry for the same price including shipping/tax. Yes, there is only white/black/red.

    This is true, however, I bought many 3pack for $2.99 each in many different color, which is $1/pc. Now the price goes up to $3.99 per pack, not too bad. For this price, I still perfer YY102 over RKEP.

    Tried a few more and I have to stand on what I said earlier. This is not as good as YY102 to me. Put on a new one on my AT900T, 10 more minutes high clear warm up, I already started losing grip, have to put some grip plus lotion to continue. This actually reminded me a grip I tried before, Pro Supex, soft feeling, but not very tacky after sweating, only good thing is cheap.

    After using this Nano grip for so long, I think that karakal is still better. The initial tackiness is there but after continued usage for a few games, it does not absorb sweat as well as karakal. It will get kind of slippery and racket will fly out if not careful. Therefore i will go back to karakal after i finish my current stock.
