    Default Yonex Super Grap

    I recently purchased super grap and applied it to my racket over a week ago before my vacation and when I came back I recognized the grip felt less "tacky" and soft. Is this normal or perhaps, I wrapped it incorrectly?
    Thanks!

    If you want good tackiness, grip it loose. Perhaps you stretched too much.

    I think this is the cause; thank-you zombie.

    I don't know about karakal super PU but Yonex's super grap is REALLY bad in my opinion... it loses tackiness very fast and breaks fast as well

    True; but what is your opinion on the initial feel of Yonex Super Grap?

    Yonex Super Grap has an okay feel, but durability is crap

    Umm.... well the super grap felt thin and not very tacky. After I used it I found out its also too thin, it gives your hand almost no support (feels like you're holding the wooden handle :S)

    Hm, I assume you applied it over the wood and not over the original grip then, correct? I think I'll try Yonex towel grip after I run out of Super Grap.

    You won't regret the G09.

    Lol it's pretty good (I actually already have it ) I ordered 1 king and 5 power master grips. Can someone confirm if the power master is like yonex's wave grip?

    Does the RKEP G09 over grip have any symbols or is it "plain," similar to the Yonex Super Grap? And is eBay the only option for purchase?

    It has 'RKEP' imprinted onto the grip. Yes, eBay.

    I've used Yonex Super Grap AC102EX. White is very good. Do not stretch it at all during gripping. I think that is the key. It lasted very long for me. I finally removed it because of dirty. I did have a packet of orange that I kept for very long and upon opening and using, it fell apart. Maybe without coloring it is actually better. Overall it is good. It is tacky and comfortable.

    My grip is no longer tacky, but soft. I think I have a tendency to stretch the grip while applying to ensure neatness :/

    Question

    I'm using the Yonex Grap AC102EX in black. And yes, I think the key is, don't strecht it too much while wrapping around the grip. I play 3 times a week + tournaments at the weekend - so I change the grip nearly every 4-6 weeks.
    But another question: Have you ever tried to change the wrap-direction? From bottom to top - for sure. But wrapping it clockwise or counterclockwise? Does this make a difference?
    The direction of the basic grap is counterclockwise - but why? Any Ideas?

    (This is my first post - I'm new here, I hope it is okay)
