I've switched back to using Yonex Super Grap for the time being. I think I still prefer it. The Elites are infinitely more durable, but they're still a tad too gummy for me. They have a leathery smoothness and tackiness about them, which is nice, but I think I prefer the tacky graininess of the Super Grap. There's just more texture to it. But I'm still experimenting.
Durability on the Super Grap is pants though. Stuff starts tearing and rubbing off in just a few hours or sessions. I must have dumped 15 hours in to the Elite's without any damage or wear, just a loss of tackiness.

You could consider to try RKEP G11 which got more similar feels to that of SUPER GRAB
RKEP is going to have a new model over grip:
0.75mm PowerCushion --- similar to that of G11 0.6mm with breathing hole
Who think G06 is too stiff that you could consider G08 which got a little soft feel with more cushion feels.
It will comes up in 60 days.

I dunno about everyone else but when I use the white elites I usually change them every 2 weeks. Because I can't stand the way they look after a few sessions. All dirty, even tho they are still useable., it just doesn't look up to par.

Just tried the power master for about 5 hours. My initial feeling is that it's a much softer grip than the ultimate and I seem to get better gripping because of the numerous indents along the grip's surface as opposed to having a smooth surface. I gripped it pretty thinly with about 4-5 mm of overlay.
I put out quite a bit of sweat today on my palms, but I must say the power master handled it beautifully. I barely feel any slipperiness on the grip when my sweat starts to get on it. Even if it did get slippery during my heavy sweating, I'd overall say the power master did twice as well handling it compared to the ultimate. Also I noticed that it has more of a ribbed feeling, almost like the super wave grap from yonex, though the ribs aren't as protruding. That's probably because of my small amount of overlay though; I suspect you won't get less or no ribbed feeling if you grip it much thicker and with more overlay.
Of course this is just the initial feel, but so far I'm going to say that for big sweaters, power master is much better in both the gripping and the sweat handling capabilities than the ultimate is.
Now we just have to compare the durability and how long the power master is able to keep up it's tackiness and gripping capabilities. I won't be playing as much badminton now that I'm on summer vacation, so I'll get a better idea once I start playing again.
Hopefully this helps give a better idea for the BC'ers with super sweaty hands and looking for a good one.
If the grip can maintain this feeling for at least a month and a half, I'm going to have a winner for my permanent grip.

I'm looking for a replacement for the Karakal PU Super. The last batch I had were a bit rubbish.
Which RKEP grip would be the best replacement grip?

Do you sweat a lot on your palms enough that your grips usually are pretty slippery or no?
I'm just curious when you say they were rubbish do you mean that the grips were defective? Because my most recent purchase had two bad grips which ripped if you tried to stretch them while gripping.
Anywas, I used to use the karakal PU super as well but I transitioned over to the Power Master. I also tried the ultimate grip, which is by far the most similar to the feel of the Karakal PU super. The Power master has a much softer feel than the ultimate grip and in my opinion is MUCH better with dealing with sweat, but it isn't as tacky.
