    Well... I order 45 of these (G09) and then ended up buying two rackets later on from him. The rackets come with 10 grips included so now I'll have 65 total... oh well, won't have to buy any for a while now...

    nice choice of colors.

    i noticed those are G09 white instead of G09L white. any reason you didn't choose the L?

    i followed your advice on the better performing colours. the G09L only came in white and it was a different listing to the G09. can you mix and match between G09 and G09L?

    YES, you could bid at G09L listing and tell me if you want to mix with some G09 standard length (and the color you wished)

    Seems like you're claiming different color gives different characteristic and performance. Could it be a psychological/visual illusion?

    i think kwun's comments are founded in feel (i.e. tackiness) and performance (NOT player performance but grip performance). if it's true how different coloured strings can give different performance and feel, i don't see why not for grips. they use different dyes etc to colour the grips after all.

    comparing colored strings with colored grips do not answer the question of how the process of color dye affect the texture and material of the grip itself. even in the case of string color, the subject is still very ambiguous; some think black strings are more slippery, some think they are more grippy, some think they are absolutely identical.

    thus, our objective here should be:

    1) figure out what type of coloring process is involved (sublimation dye, ink press, etc)
    2) how does that process alter the material used in grip (polyurethane, and/or any additional coating on top)

    Coming from the rubber/plastics industry, I can say that dyes definitely alter performance. As the color is uniform through out the products they will have been introduced fairly early in the process. The type of dye used will determine how much it affects performance, no idea on what is used in rkep products.

    I bought a bunch of G11's of various colours recently and I finally put one on my racket to try last week, and after 4 sessions I am pleased to say that the grips did not dissapoint and lived up to its hype =P The grip I put on my racket is purple. By now if I was using a Yonex supergrap it would have already lost its tacky-ness, but the RKEP stays strong.

    I have read that for the G09 model there are a few "better" colours - pink, red, green and now yellow too? lol, I wonder if this is true for the G11 model too haha I will let everyone know if they are actually better next time I change the grip =P

    it is about performance of the grip, as llpjlau says.

    a grip is very much personal preference, so the feedback i gave is partly subjective, i personally like grips with a tacky surface and i want the tacky surface to last long.

    Yonex Super Grap don't have a good tacky surface, some of them have better ones than others, but mostly, their surface is slightly foamly and they fall apart quite easily.

    for RKEP, it has a surface that is very tacky, and the tackines last pretty long, particularly the green, pink and yellow one. the red one come close second. the white one is ok and the black one is worth. the tacky surface of the black one goes from tacky to a suede like texture.

    this has of course, nothing to do with my badminton performance.

    and it not only come from me. i have given/sold the grips to various friends and they also give me similar feedback.
