    You can get them off ebay direct from Eric, as many or as little as you like.

    Just order a bunch from Eric and some Nitto tape from MBS! To me, a bad (wet) grip significantly deminishes my performance. Now I can change it as soon as I need to and not have to try to prolong the usage and hopefully it will last longer than the other grip against my sweats too.

    Cheers

    Maybe it's just me but I don't think the RKEP G09 Elite lasts longer than Yonex Supergrap. It last just as long. However, RKEP has better value since it's half the price of Yonex.

    Anyone find that the green G09L doesn't stay still and insists on sliding about on the handle ?

    White doesn't stay tacky as long as red or pink, although it's already better than black or gray.

    Good to know.

    My comparision was white RKEP G09 vs white Yonex Supergrap. The longevity is about the same for both. But RKEP is much cheaper...about half the cost of Yonex. So I'll be changing grips every 2 weeks.

    Which RKEP Grip would you recommend for me?

    I have pretty sweaty hands but don't like super tacky grips. Which RKEP grip would be closest in firmness to Super PU and texture of Supergrap?

    Eric: Any plans on re-releasing the G03 replacement grip? ETA for new G11?


    On another note, anybody in Vancouver mind selling me their grip to try?
    Interested in trying G03 (King), G05 (Ultimate), G06 (Power Master), G08 (Soft75) and G09 (Elite).

    Willing to pay $3CAD for replacement grips and $1.50CAD for overgrips. Let me know what colours you are willing to part with.



    I second this... and maybe a list of stock weights as well
    Maybe Dink can make a new table :D

    G06 G05 G03 all got favorite
    Each one got his own preference. Very hard to tell which one is the best.
    You could tray each model first before purchase a lot.
    I could offer one each trial sample at sample price if you wished.

    Do you also ship to the Philippines? Or can I get the sample from authenticbadminton distributor?

    I have G06 and G09 (both are white) that you can try...no charge. You just have to pick them up. PM me for details.

    So the G03 and G11 are new replacement grips that are supposed to be better than the current models?
