    i thinking of either the following

    RKEP Soft Grip
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/6-x-RKEP-G01-1-7...tem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20b05db9c6

    Karkal PU
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/4-x-KARAKAL-PU-S..._Sporting_Goods_Badminton&hash=item439f270062

    or an over grip, but i have been having troubles finding a good replacement grip to wrap my over grips around cause i ripped off my original grip

    but anyways, which grip should i get and what is worth it more to buy in value and if there are cheaper places to buy grips

    Overgrips tend to ruin the original grip when you remove them - what you can do is apply a layer of shrink/food wrap around the original grip before applying the overgrip. Some overgrips come with a thin transparent film that you peel off before applying the overgrip to the racket handle - you can also wrap that film around the original grip before applying the overgrip.

    Of course, if you have other reasons for disliking overgrips, you can ignore what i've said. But it's always good to know! :D

    Sorry, it looks like i've misunderstood you. Just go with the RKEP grip then - can't go wrong with it at that price.

    You may as well get the King grip from RKEP and put in on directly on the wooden handle since you already junked the factory grip. With the King grip, you won't need an overgrip.

    both are good brands with good products.
    i don't think you will go wrong with any of those choices.

    alright thanks allot guys i got the karakal grip 3 of them for 9

    since i didnt have 15 dollars to buy 6, i would of got the rkep otherwise

    but yeah... karakal pu is perfectly fine taped onto the wood right? no over grip required after it? and if i did want an over grip to wrap over it, would it be too thick
