    Kimoni stuff is all very good in terms of performance. However, they don't last that long, on par with Yonex stuff which is average.

    Yonex's CyberGrap is excellent as well, super duper tacky initially and has great feel but durability is only average.

    I believe their website is currently down.

    Kimoni/Kimony, I believe it's the same thing but officially on the package, it's "Kimony".

    Sir! I already purchased the grips. I purchased a few packs of everything they offered...otherwise how would I know the grips were good?

    Yes, I tried the 100. I bought a few packs of everything from 100 to 135 and everything in between.

    I don't understand your question about "fit in the quality".

    In terms of performance, Kimony is right up there with the best. However, durability is just average. Other than durability, most of the ratings are excellent.

    I'll be posting an updated review...probably this weekend.

    This is my last grip review update.

    I finally got a chance to test Karakal and Kimony grips and I'm glad that I did. Both are among the best grips I have tried. However, both are hard to find. I had to get the Karakal grips from Vietnam and Kimony from Hong Kong.

    The Karakal PU Super Grip is my favorite followed by the Karakal Nano 60. The PU Super Grip is more of a replacement grip. The Nano 60 is simply first-rate for an overgrip. It's my go to grip.

    Kimony makes great grips as well, they are just not durable. But all of them are good performing and feel great.

    Yonex's new Cyber Grap is an ultra-tacky great feeling grip. But like Super Grap, it's durability is a bit below average.

    Thanks for the update, DinkAlot.
    I think I'll try out the Krakal PU Supergrip soon, because I know a shop nearby which sells them.

    Default Any UK/US sellers have the Wilson X-tra Tack? :)

    Try as I might, I can't find these anywhere in the UK without incurring a ludicrous postage charge ($10... for a bloody pack of grips weighing 2 ounces?!?!).

    As such, do any of you guys fancy selling me some? I can pay in $US via Paypal if you're of the colonies.


    Many thanks,

    M.

    Rapid repairs is one place that carries the X-tra tack in the UK.
    http://www.rapidrepair.biz/rr-shop/index.html

    I think shipping is free (I've not ordered from them before, as I still have a lot of grips to go through, so can't tell you for sure), but minimum order is 10. Give it a go and let us know if shipping is free =)!

    I have also something to say about one grip - I played 4 times now with Karakal Nano 60 grip and it is unbelievable! Durable, tack and dry! What else to wish... I used before Pointfore (really good, but in a time it can loose tackiness) and Pacific original (fine in first few minutes but completely useless after ~few games). And yes, choose WHITE grip - one guy told me that coloured grips are a little less tacky because of the chemicals which are used to coloure them. I used orange and white Karakal Nano 60 grip and I could say that white is more tacky.
    However, my rating for Karakal Nano 60: 10/10!

    I've tried the Karakal PU Supergrip on my AT700. heck, it's so tacky and coushion'y I dont want to let go of it. Only bad-side, it makes my AT700 rather head-light.

    i understand that the Yonex SuperGrap is not very durable. but then when it is priced at US$27.00 for 30. even after shipping, i m still saving lots. i m changing it frequently. at the end, i think it beats all the grip for me because it's superbly cost effective. even if i change it every 3-4 weeks, it's super cheap! it's tackyness is just right in both wet/dry hands. xtra tac is super tacky, but it slips when my hands got really wet. Karakal's replacement grip has the absolute best tackiness feel i've ever tried, but i prefer A440's thickness. i m using the white supergraps.
