    Really? IMO, it's much cleaner looking with double sided tape or super glue.

    Any way, up to individual preference, cos no other people will be really looking at ur finishing area. lols.

    Btw, any idea will Eric have more colors for his towel grips in the future?

    The G15 towel grip reel is really big and really cheap; a great deal. It's comfortable and soft to the touch but putting it directly on the handle was not cushioned enough for me at all, and even with a thin overgrip on the handle under the towel grip it was still too thin. If you like thin towel grips then this is definitely worth trying. I personally don't really like the feel of towel grip in general anyway, so I'll stick to my Elites :)

    the thickness of G15 towel grip:
    feels about similar to that of G05 ULTIMATE grips

    that might takes a long time. However, you could take VICTOR reel 10m towel grips first. We also offer VICTOR all series items (VICTOR do not allow us to list it on our e-Bay store)

    You may try the RKEP G08 soft75 grip,
    to me it has rougher surfaces compare to G09 Elite,
    slightly thicker and softer.
    They do absorb sweat quite well. To me, it is similar with Yonex 102EX absorbtion, but way much cheaper.

    it seems that the king grip is too thick to my liking :(
    I just cannot generate the power and it is hard for me to play backhand since it is very big and I cannot find the edge

    after I stretch it for a bit, the grip becomes thinner, I hope it would be better, I like how it feels on my hand

    I'm curious to try the King grip because it sounds nice, but I'm also scared it will be too thick :p

    if it's too thick (it is very thick) you can stretch it and make it thinner
    it has very nice surface

    but if you are afraid, I would strongly recommend power master, bought 6 of it before, and really happy with it
