    Default Yonex wet grips

    I bought a yonex grip ( which, the seller told it's a wet grip). I found it quiet comfortable and tacky.

    The seller has not stocked it after that and I'm not able to find any grips listed as wet grip in online stores.

    Can you list the wet grips that are made by yonex

    PS : I threw away the grip while replacing and the only thing I know about the grip is , it was in lime green color and had a medium cushy feel. There was no texts like "wet grip" or anything like that.

    Please help me out.

    The majority are wet grips. AC102 are the plain standard (wet) grips, then there are different embossed, perforated and ridged ones, like AC106, AC133, and a bunch more. AC140, AC144 and a few others seem to be dry.

    Anyhow, if it was plain I think it's a safe bet it was an AC102 grip.

    If it wasn't plain take a look here and see if you recognise it: http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/cat..._acc_b/#page=1

    AC102 are not wet grips.

    AC148 are wet grips.

    Interesting. Yonex themselves describe AC102 as wet grips though (as would I, they're certainly not dry in my opinion). The subtitle in their catalogue is "wet super grip" with the description "A long-selling model that excels in wet feeling". AC148 is called "moist super grip", but has the wet property.

    The AC102 is okay with light sweat, but if you are really sweaty, your racquet is at risk of flying out of your hands. It has happened to me too many times in the past. I've only used AC148 once a long time ago and I recall it felt better with sweaty hands, but that was so long ago I can't remember well. I recommend RKEP's wet grip, it's better.

    As AC148 is not available in the color I used, I figured the grip I used was AC102.

    AC 148 has only white and pink it seems.

    I can't find rkep grips anywhere in my area or any online retailers in my country. Thanks for the info though.

    There's a thread about RKEP, it will provide a lot of good info about the types of grips RKEP offers. Another alternative to RKEP that I use is Gamma Supreme, it's got just the right amount of tacky when it's wet.
