    Default Preson Grip

    Hi all...

    Have any of you tried the Preson grips? I have the opportunity to hold one today and it is REALLY tacky... much tackier than Karakal...

    However, I tried to find the photo of the grip but couldn't find it... found other model instead...

    Any experience to share?

    The place I am currently playing, ELEMENTS Badminton Centre, its sport shop sells Preson grips although I have not tried them. I am currently using Karakal PU.

    I may just do so the next round of grip change

    I think I have found the grip that I was mentioning. I think it is the new Karakal PU Air Grip... It is almost the same as the one I saw (based on my memory). The photo can be found below:

    http://www.karakal.com/NEW-PU-Air-Grip.html

    I think the person used the preson tape to tape the grip... I hope I can double confirm this... That is really a very tacky grip though... Anyone used this Karakal PU Air Grip before?

    Well, I never used the overgrip you mentioned so... I cant compare and comment. Price? I cant find anyone selling it in Msia... one Indo website is selling about RM8 though.

    Hope that I can find the racket again and capture a photo and try to see what grip it is...

    After searching the website, I think it is not preson grip but Karakal air grip. I think maybe the person just used the preson tape. What I saw in the first place is like the karakal air grip, not duo colour...

    It looks almost exactly like the Karakal Air Grip that I posted the link... I failed to find the racket last week at the venue that I play. Will try to snap a photo tonight if I can find the guy around!

    Good News!!! Manage to capture the grip for you all to see. According to the guy, this is a Kawasaki brand grip. I tried to search from the web but couldn't find any info... Here is my review on the grip based on what I can feel...

    Tackiness - Very tacky, definitely tackier than Karakal
    Spongyness - This grip is hard type and not spongy, unlike Karakal
    Thickness - I think it is almost the same thickness as karakal or less as it is not spongy. It give you a very firm grip feeling...
