    Does anyone know anywhere good to get these in the UK?

    The international shipping from the ebay store isn't hugely attractive.

    Just didn't know if anyone was distributing them here.

    Can the p and p be combined, or do I have to pay postage for each thing?

    If you buy 2 or more things he will give you 1 price for the postage and that's it, which is fair of course. I suggest you e-mail him so he can give you the best price!

    Haven't been on this forums for a very long time and too lazy atm to read through 30 pages.

    Can someone update me which is the goto overgrips and which colours perform best.

    Thanks.

    Can someone tell me which RKEP grip is noticeably tackier than the G09?

    I have tried the G09 but find it not tacky enough, especially after a 1-2 sessions.

    Which color did you try?

    I'm surprised you don't find it tacky. It is probably the tackiest grip out there. I use the Black ones because it seems to be least tacky.

    I was advised that the blue is the most tacky.

    I ordered 6 the other week and I find them to be absolutely great.

    I've tried all colours for the g09. Tackiest would be the pink and green... when new it can practically shear off the top layer of your palm as it sticks to your skin like a suction cup. :p

    Agreed on the pink. It was so tacky beyond my tastes, I could hardly use it. You could almost see the cracks from lack of moisture on my hand after using it. :eek:

    I've only tried the white and black, I only use white grips really - my preferred colour.

    The best grip amongst the reasonably priced overgrips I've tried so far is the Artengo ones. Its definitely tackier than the G09 and the tackiness also seems to last longer.

    The G09 is tacky when new (although I'd prefer it tackier) but after a few sessions with it, it looses that tackiness quite quickly. It remains grippy, but not tacky if you know what I mean.

    Interesting. Mind to share a link to the Artengo ones you're talking about?
