    Thanks, So I guess it's a product characteristic and not just a bad batch.

    It's not a huge deal right now, as long as it isn't toxic or gives me cancer or something of that sort 10 years down the road lol.

    they all bleed, i have had yonex super grap orange bleed all over my white grips. the best color is still white since it's the natural color from a thread i read on here.

    You like extra grippy and tacky? Then you'll love the pink or grey G09 Elites. They can be so grippy that they can cause a friction blister on your palm. :eek:

    i agree!!! sometimes when i take a racket out of the bag by the head frame, the tackiness of the g09 grip got stuck together and i ended up pulling two rackets out of the bag...

    one thing i notice, when i do get sweat drip down from my arm to my wrist, the grip isn't too absorbent. i never had this problem with the yonex supergrap. i am wondering if it's the tackiness that requires more glossy-rubbery material which doesn't allow much liquid to go thru?

    again, i know i've said this over and over again, but my hand is considered very dry so even on a hot summer day when i play, my hand doesn't sweat, but my arm does, and the only way my hands would be sweaty is when i wipe my sweat off my face and fling it off court :)


    just realized that maybe a thin wristband is the ultimate solution since my arm doesn't sweat THAT much. this way it will keep my hand completely dry throughout the game!!!

    Has anyone try before - to put on a replacement grip with the upside-down method a.k.a LCW style? Mind to share the feel of it? Especially the feel at the cone when there is no finishing tape for the thickness of a replacement grip. :D

    I couldn't resist to get some G08-ssssss but what color best suit my VT80? :p

    With the length of G08, and 50% overlap, is it possible to wrap up till half of the cone?

    I do think so red will be nice and so with yellow, blue, grey, purple. *Headache* :rolleyes:

    In terms of length, AC102EX is longer than G08? Any idea?
