    Lightbulb kimony grip

    Hi there, i was just wondering if anyone has used the kimony grip, i ordered my z-slash of ebay and the guy sent a free kimony 109 gt grip and said it was one of the best grips but it wasnt that well known as a brand. So i am just wondering anyone used this, personally i think it is a fantastic grip!

    Kimony grips are ones of the best IMO. I like double-waved KGT108.

    this is a good brand of grip (their rackets are not bad either). I personally prefer single ridge version than the double one since it feels less bulky. They are also rather durable provided you use a wrist band. I am currently playing 5 days a week in china and they last for a good few months.

    Oh and www.puppysports.com sells them to the UK. They are a hong kong company whose address is the same as Racket Shop in MongKok.

    Yes, that is where I obtained my sample of kimoni grips. They give free grip when you buy a racket from their store.

    The grip, as keios said, are pretty good. My hand sweats a lot and yet, the grip still maintains some of its tackiness (only used it for 3 days).

    Kimony grips are SUPER sticky, the colours are insanely bright. But compared to Yonex grips, they are quite a bit shorter, thats if you like to wrap it over the cone.

    KTG109 spiral grip is actually for tennis racquet. (although they can be applied to badminton racquet). Kimony came out with KTG119 which is specially made for badminton racquet. It is 25mm wide rather than 29mm.

    I had trouble finding them locally so I actually ordered them from their website. (I ordered bulk to save on postage) http://kimonyusa.com/Badminton%20Spiral.html

    They shipped from Japan or US. My kid loves them.

    109 is for tennis (http://www.kimony.com/product.php?cate_id=1) but if it works for you then great. I usually use 119 though from MBS.
