Thread: Preson Grip
09-20-2012, 11:15 AM #1
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 see... after trying, do let us know... the one I tried which is very tacky is like double layer... the base is orange colour while the top is black mesh... like fishnet with tiny holes....
Tried to find the photo but couldnt...

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:
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...

How does it look like?

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...
