    I actually use nano 60 as a replacement grip (i.e. w/o the stock grip) and it still works fine. I do that so the grip will not be too big. For your information, the PU super grip will increase the grip size by 3/8" and the nano 60 by 2/8".
    If you find that the PU Super is too thick, try pulling it bit when you wrap the tape. It will get stretch and get thinner. You'll lose some of the absorbtion qualities but keep all of the wonderful tackiness and feel.

    how long do the karakal nano 60 and the replacement PU super last?
    my yy super grap only lasts about 1-2 month at most before it starts to bother me.

    I can no longer recommend Karakal nano 60.

    First I found it having good touch feel. But after I used it, I found the color (blue) fading and also my holding hand became colored. It continued so after three trials (days). I have since switched to using Yonex.

    Karakal PU super grip seems not having this problem, though.

    I bought the Karakal overgrip from ebay. I do not now what went wrong.

    Interesting. I've seen a kinda similar effect on the Karakal Duo (is like PU Super but it's two colors) where the darker color bleeds onto the lighter one after a couple of uses. It doesn't end up on my hand though.

    i've just replaced & gotten karakal PU super Multi & using as a overgrip.
    the feeling is good so far. i have sweaty palm & should not be too long before the colours go haywire as mentioned. Let's see.

    I've been removing the factory grip and putting down a thin overgrip and then putting PU Super on top of that. You get the feel of PU Super but it isn't as thick.

    How long does it last for you?

    I just had a chance to try out a few apac pu's i got from Dink. I usually remove the factory grip, and lay down two layers of over grip and the thickness is good for me. For the Apac pu, i tried with just the replacement pu grip and also with the grip on top of one over grip. With out a grip underneath it is too thin. With a grip underneath its too fat and my timing is waaay off. I guess super pu/apacs pu is not good for me.

    You need to adjust the thickness of the grip underneath:

    If too thick:

    1) Use an overgrip, not replacement grip
    2) Try single and double lapping.

    One of those has to work otherwise it's too thin and you need another replacement grip.

    I tried the grip again last night trying single lapping without any grip or overgrip underneath and it was pretty close. Not bad overall, going to try it some more. Overall grip was great.

    In other news today i stopped by a local tennis shop to see if they had the new colors of wilson pro grip. They didnt but they did have it in white. Its probably my favorite overgrip. What i did see was there were new colors, orange, blue, and pink of gamma supreme overgrip, my no.2 favorite over grip! Wooooot!
