the G10's and G11's are not suitable for me at all. i have very VERY sweaty palms. there was some discussion about sweaty palms earlier on in this thread and people were giving it a figure out of 10. if i had to give my palms a figure, it'll be 11/10!
until my G09's arrive, i'm sticking (pun intended) with Yonex Supergrap. i saw an immediate improvement in performance after switching back from the G10/G11 to the supergrap. though the supergrap isn't the most tacky around, the G10 and G11 are just too slippery for me. now i just need to find uses for my leftover G10/G11. i'll probably just use them as the first layer on my racket handles and top them off with a G09. can't wait for my package!

I've just placed an order for 6x G06 Grips in Red/White and Green. I'll post back my findings in a few weeks once they have arrived and I've had time to test them ^^

can anyone tell me whether the RKEP Elite (G09) model has the same kind of texture as the Karakal Point 75?

I used both Point 75 and Nano 60 and realized I like Nano 60 better (thinner,tackier, more durable). Right now I find G09 to be a good replacement for Nano 60. If nothing else, it's cheaper. I've only used the G09 for a couple of hours so far, I can't comment on it's durability. My hands don't sweat much.

Those g9s are not PU like texture? I like the kind of soft grip of karakal point 75. Was hoping g9 feels like point 75 but with more durability and tackier.
Is that the case?

On another previously mentioned note. The backing of the G09 is not tacky at all. When wrapping like I normally do with about 1/8" overlap and medium pull, I found that after 1 session the grip has slipped and exposed a bit of the under grip. I have regripped and this time I "He-Man" pulled to tightened the wrapping and also gave a bit more overlap. It would be nice to put a BIT of tack on the backing. Someone also mentioned the length is a little short. Yes it is, but I still have more than enough to wrap a long handle and past the cone. I can see how people who wrap with say 1/4" overlap would run out of grip. Good enough for me though.

One users just sent me following message:
Hello,I just want to inform you that the G06 are perfect.
Yesterday i played for more than 2 hours and it was perfect. First 15 minutes I was loosing the control as the racket was turning and slipping in my hand but later on the racket was like a flower in my hand.

I recently placed an order for roughly 550 grips. Eric was extremely quick with regards to communication and shipping out the items, per the usual. My order came in exactly as requested, no problems whatsoever.
I have tried out the Power Master grip, and I find its medium tack, but instead of absorbing sweat, it sort of makes it evaporate rather quickly. I find this type of grip great for racquetball as in that sport you wear a very tacky glove, and this power master grip will bind extremely well to the type of glove we wear for that sport. It is also good for tennis as well. However, I feel for badminton, I sweat too much to fully enjoy it. It is still an excellent grip, but for heavy sweaters like me, I still recommend the Ultimate, Nano, or King more.
I am trying out the Contact grip as well, it is thinner than what I expected but still very cushiony. The ridge lends itself perfectly to tennis, as the ridges sit right in between my fingers and prevent spinng of the racket handle. Highly recommended for tennis. I will need to go play on a hot day to test its ability to deal with sweat.

Using the RKEP Elite at the moment. Love it. It's a bit more leathery feeling than Yonex Super Grap. Stickiness is roughly the same, maybe the Yonex takes it by about 10%. The RKEP however is a LOT more durable (Super Grap is fading and roughing up after just a few days use, the RKEP is still un-ruffled) and perhaps holds it's thickness a bit better too. Think I'll probably switch to RKEP now if availability and prices are ok for the UK.

OH yea, forgot to mention, the order of 500+ grips is for my badminton store, give me a PM here or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so if you are based in US, I can get your RKEP grips to you much quicker. International orders are always welcome as well

Interesting observation tonight:
Was just changing grip rkep elite from red to white, and noticed the bp increased by 4-5mm!
Which means the red is heavier than the white by an amount that is not insignificant!
Understandably, given there is extra weight due pigment and whatnot... but just to let everyone know that if you prefer a head heavy balance, then white would be the best choice.
I haven't checked other colours yet; I'll leave that to others to experiment.
