    I have bought some grips from Eric few months back.Eric tool a photo of my package and thrown in a G01 grip for free.

    I really like them from beginning. They are best grips I ever used. The G09L ELITE over grip doesn't have much back linen like other brand does. It can be re-applied easily. They are very durable. I play 9 hours per week. I only changed them because they are dirty.
    G05 ultimate is thicker than G06. I used them on two identical racquets. I can feel slightly difference. All grips are very tacky.

    I picked green, grey, orange, silver and light blue color. I like orange color more. These grips will last long time before another order.

    Is the G11 Wet tape just G09 Elites with holes? Or are the materials slightly different. Or for people that have used both, what are the tackiness and resistant to sweaty hands like?

    G09 tacky type with a little stiff feel)
    G11 soft with dry feel --- very close to that of YONEX SUPER GRAB
    (but G11 might even better as they come with hole -- increase gripping power)

    You are right, "tacky" means grippy.

    Also, G11 is tackier than G08 from what I feel.

    all,
    can i conclude that
    1)overgrip
    may i know which one is the best for tacky?
    G09 or G11?
    G09 and G08 share the same tacky but G08 is more softer, right?

    2)thick grip
    which one is most tacky between G01 and G03?

    over grip:
    tacky:
    #1 G09
    #2 G08
    #3 G11
    G11 is not so tacky but it got go through hole that it could increase gripping power

    thick grip:
    tacky:
    #1 G05 very endurable, a little stiff
    #2 G03 got go through hole increasing gripping power, soft feel
    #3 G01 with a very soft feel --- can not endure very long
    #4 G06 a little dry but with pattern on the it could increasing power --- very endurable

    We are in Kaohsiung
    If you want to our city
    Transfer airplane from HONG KONG will be much easier

    Actually if you ever want to Taipei that the international airport is still about 50km away
    and need to take some more hours to take bus.

    Ultimate - slightly hard and tacky feel

    King - soft and spongy feel

    Kind of hard to compare, since they are very different, but dingboy said it pretty well.
    The biggest difference must be that king is very elastic while ultimate is pretty firm.

    Hard to say.
    I think Ultimate and Powermaster for replacement grips. Prefer powermaster myself.
