install sample for your reference:
How much overlap did you use?
Can you not see the green lines in picture 2? Perfectly illustrated by eric for you .
I'm not really sure how to interpret those green lines
EDIT: Oh, does that mean that should be the width that should be "exposed" when I do the overlap?
Yes sir. Even without the green lines, I can see that he overlaps leaving half the previous overlay exposed, to create a more uniform feel and look. More or less overlap would result in a more ridged feel to it, but more means a thicker grip, and less means a thinner overall grip.
And of course, it doesn't have to be the same all the way up the handle. There are some users here who do a very thick overlap pattern at the base and a thinner overlap the rest of the way up to create an "ergonomic" feeling handle.
Oh ok, thanks for the info
Is the Elite overgrip a big improvement over the G10 and 11 grips?
The Elite over grip has a different texture, different feel; the feel is the over grip version of the Ultimate replacement grip.
Panda has not tried the Elite under extreme wet conditions.
Ok thanks alot Dinkalot.
Would putting the Ultimate Grip in a bare wood grip and overlapping it for about half the width of the Ultimate Grip be the normal thickness for a normal person?
YES, defefinitly it will be very good for both more control and more power.
I have now had a good 50-or-so games with the Ultimates, and I can review it with a single sentence: all other replacement grips are now obsolete.
To go into a bit more detail, initial tack is right up there with the KPSU, but the tack just stays and stays and stays, and no amount of sweat can dislodge it. I find myself reaching for the grip owder less and less these days.
i agree with u mark i experienced the same RKEP ultimate grip is the best
Hello Super64 & Mark A
May I know whether You both have used any OVERGRIP alongwith the RKEP Ultimate Grip or not?
it depends whether ur hands can grip ur racket with an overgrip . for me i remove my orignal victor grip then directly wrap the RKEP.
It means you did not need any overgrip over the RKEP Ultimate. Am I true?
Hello Mr. Squash Eri
Is it necessary to use an overgrip after applying your Ultimate Grip (G05)?
No. It's all up to you, whether the grip feels right for you or not.
So you guys still feel the contour of the wood of the grip of your racket? Does it hurt your thumb?
in my case i didnt bcoz my hand is small so its hard to grip the racket also use a towel wrist band to help absorb sweat.
