    i had to do less than 50%. if 50%, then it is short by an inch.

    G10 is wider than G9 therefore it is shorter.

    neither of which are long enough.

    Hmmm both are stated to be the same width, stated at 25mm on the website. Strange.

    For the Note:
    Yonex supergrab is 1200mm
    RKEP G10/G11 1050mm
    RKEP G09 1100mm
    Most time I do 50% overlap. So for example, AT900T, it's longer handle, the grip length is not enough. For short handle, like AT600 or VT70, it's just OK.

    my G10 and G9 have different width/length.

    G10 : W27mm x L1050mm
    G9 : W25mm x L1100mm

    and yes. 50% overlap is not long enough.

    every 2 weeks? that's very often. i usually wait till mine are starting to wear before i change it out.

    I haven't done one in a while, but the RKEP has always been more than long enough for me. I have yet to meet an overgrip that was too short.

    I'll talk to Eric to see if I can get some extra long 1200mm ones made for you kwun

    i do like the feel of the G10. slightly soft and supple and the just right amount of tackiness. it is not the more wrinkle resistant (stiff) of grip but aside from some shifting, it is pretty good so far.

    Guess Eric has to update his posting on ebay. Still says W25mm

    I was wondering why I was changing racket grips every so often. It's because my brother also plays and we share rackets so it was getting about 4 - 6 times of use every week. Otherwise it'll be 3weeks + before I change the overgrip. On the + side if I want crystal clean white grips every weeks, RKEP grips are cheap enough to regrip very often

    tried the tackier G9 over the weekend. played 12 pretty tough consecutive games. the G9 did pretty well. it was slightly cold as we played in the morning but the body warmed up very fast. i change shirts maybe twice during that time. the grip did well, i started getting bothered by sweat on the grip after around 6 games, after which i had to keep wiping it off. the tackiness stayed throughout.

    given the pretty low cost of the RKEP G9/G10, they are good choice for people who prefer synthetic grips. we cannot expect perfect sweat wicking from this type of grip and the above scenario is probably the best we can expect from it.

    the choice between G9 and G10 is purely left to personal preference. the G9 is stiffer and very tacky (even more than Wilson Xtra Tack) and the G10 is softer.

    We plan to stop to offer G10 in order to avoid confusion between G10 and G09
    --- only G09 and G11 from now
    We still got some G10 in stock --- ask me if you are interested
    For G10 in the future, we accept pre order (delivery in 2 month) with minimum requirement.

    We also launched a totally new type replacement grips
    G06 POWER MASTER grip
    It got RUBBER like hand feel --- could firmly gripping the racket even with sweating hand

    Eric, thanks for replying!

    Since I got you here, your website says that g9 is slightly harder feel than g11? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

    Also, is g9 similar to g10 in feel and tackiness?

    Both G9 and G10 are similar except that the G9 is more tacky. I also find that the tackiness stays longer and the grip generally lasts long on the G9.

    G9 is my preffered grip from now on.

    G10 and G11 are both not tacky enough for me. they do not perform well at all (for me). my grips tend to get very wet. i've only tried the G9 once. can anyone confirm if the G9 is actually better than the G10 and G11 under extreme sweat?
