    Hi guys...i want to ask, can i use grip powder with karakal PU supergrip ? i heard that grip powder only works for towel grip...and 1 more, based on ur experience guys, how long will the karakal PU supergrip last ? fyi, i still nt have the grip powder yet as it seems like no one/shop is selling it in my area. so, can i use talc powder as an alternative ?

    any advices will be greatly appreciated..:D

    Yeah I agree with Danny. Personally I wouldn't recommend using grip powder on that as well (still have a whole bottle of grip powder in my bag, unused). The karakal super pu is one of the best grip I've used for tacky-ness, so depending on your frequency of play, the initial tacky feeling may probably wear off in about less than a month, but overall I think it'll last for about 2 to 3 months before it gets sort of soaked up and slippery, then you'd have to replace it.
