    ordered a trial for g05, g06, g09
    Ultimate, Elite, and Power Master
    Will give review and comparison with karakal super once I get to try them out
    I find my batch of Karakals are wearing out too quickly (they may be old stock/canada's too dry for the pu)

    I tried applying like that but it kept creasing on the lower edge. How do I avoid that? In the end I had to use a much smaller overlap

    I always get smaller creases on the lower area near the cap as well. Never knew how to fix it with my wrapping So I just lived with it.

    Start off with a smaller angle and under less tension. That will reduce the creases near the cap due to the bulge at the end.

    I received a batch of the G-09 Elite overgrip and I am comparing it to some of the older models (one is discontinued?). My previous favourite grip was the G-12 High Tape overgrip. I like that one so much I bought about 100 of them. So far, the G-09 Elite seems to be a good alternative. When wrapping, it is slightly less stretchy so contouring takes a bit more effort. I like to wrap the cone up to the first bit of exposed shaft.

    Something not yet mentioned is the finishing tape that comes with this. I like to finish a grip by winding finishing tape tight, almost shrinkwrap-like. The other RKEP overgrips' finishing tapes are mediocre like almost any on the market (Yonex, Wilson, Prince, etc). I typically threw them away. Even 3M or Duck brand electrical tape doesn't hold. With those, especially in warmer temperatures, the tape will unravel or "back-off" loosening the finish, sometimes exposing goopy adhesive. To fix this, I buy Nitto tape from MBS to make a nice clean finish. With this recent batch of RKEP Elite grip, I was very surprised at the quality of the finishing tape. I can do my usual tight wrap and pull until it thins to breaking off. It sticks and hasn't backed off for a few days. Usually the average tape will loosen within a day.

    If this holds up, I may not need to buy Nitto tape.

    i think you will be disappointed. the tape do peel back and leaves a sticky residue behind.

    there are only 2 things the RKEP G09 grip can improve.

    - better finishing tape
    - 5cm longer

    Just got my RKEP G05, feels great, very slightly less tacky than the Karakal super Pu but its still plenty. Durability was much better with no sighs of wearing what so ever after 1 session, which from my last batch of karakal super pus there was rubbing at the thumb. Length could be a bit longer, I just made it to the top of my racket handle (after a couple of unwinds). Overall great grip for the price, will definitely get more when my stock runs out.

    Yeah, a bit longer would be nice.

    My workaround for that is to start wrapping the butt end first with a 2-3 inches of used thin grip like g9. This builds up the butt end for better grip in smashes and also allow me to wrap the new grip closer to the cone.

    I agree with visor and kwun a longer G-09 would be great as I like to wrap up the cone and at the moment I have to make to overlaps narrower, which makes the grip slightly narrow for me. Might give visor's idea a try.

    I now have a few reduntant Kakarakal supergrips - anyone want to make me an offer?

    Eric, any chance of a longer G-09?

    Looking forward to wrapping the grip of my T-pro with G-09.

    I bought 4 dozens and nearly 1/2 has been claimed in less than a week. At this price it is a really nice value grip.

    If there is a longer version of G-09, I'll definitely order 50 of them. Go for it, Eric.

    We are negotiating with the factory whether they could offer longer version. If they really could that the name will be G09L.
    However, according to most badminton users oppinion that current length is very good for their use.
    Too long tape will need to cut some part off.
    But I know that tennis users will like it longer.....
