    To be honest, I'd be very surprised if it's cheaper at my local hardware store. My guess is 3 minimum. Might as well pay $3 and get something I know works well instead of something that might not.

    Maybe do some research... All MBS products include shipping cost worldwide except for badminton bags and shuttles... so $3 is $3 shipped.

    I have carried out very extensive research into this NITTO tape (see link below)
    http://www.nitto.com/product/datashe...001/index.html
    and as you will see it is wire harness tape, and I have found no one who stocks this particular tape in the UK. There may be stockists in the US and Far East etc as it is made in Japan. Not all electrical tape is the same.

    As already pointed out shipping for this tape is free from MBS.

    I don't really understand your problem and by the way before you give BCers advice check your facts. How about a bit more positivity!!

    Badminton branded toilet paper sounds like a must-have!!!

    LOL I don't have nitto here, but I got a 6 pack of colorful E tape that works even better than nitto. and I got it for 2 bucks.

    anyways, back to RKEP. I need more Power Master. Lovely grip it is.

    @Kwun

    Glad you said what I didn't want to say in the tense argument over.... finishing tape....

    @ singnflip

    Glad you've discovered the loveliness of the Power Master grip. It lived up to my expectations quite nicely. With the way I gripped it with like 4 or 5 mm of overlay, my fingers fit like they're in slots. It's so comfortable and deals with my sweaty palms just fine, which is very rare.

    Well, I actually rang the number for Nitto quoted above. They said they had no distributers in my area, only in the Midlands. She then gave me two separate numbers for those distributers, one called Quest and the other called Fanline. I rang both, Quest never picked up and Fanline couldn't give me the details to any stockists online or in London, but said they would give me a call back after doing a bit more digging. Not heard back from them yet.

    Just a lot easier to spend the 1.77 (inc shipping) at MBS tbh...

    On a side note, I actually own some electrical tape already (no idea what brand, it has no branding what-so-ever on it). Only about a metre or so left, but it does leave residue and perhaps is a bit too strong for racket grip use.

    @Tactim

    My inventory of Power Master has gone low already. Never imagined I'd run through 2 dozen so quickly. But when there's 4 tennis racquets to regrip, and a dozen badminton rackets, and some to go to you....

    Time to reorder! Gonna get some purple for my UPro, Orange for TPro, Green for Precision, Blue for AG100 (tennis)... If anyone wants in, let me know.

    So I am thinking about trying G09, is it worth it ? I used to use Supergrap, but I switch between that and towel grip. Is the G09 generally better than the SuperGrap ? And worth the money ? I was thinking of ordering around 20 ish. maybe 100 if they are highly recommended.

    The white G09L are just so so n got slippery in the 2nd game , just like kwun mentioned , yellow , green , red , lavender , pink are much better , I have only tried the red G09 , it's much more tackier n feels stiffer , if that's what u r looking for , my friend loves the green , however I still prefer AC102's overall feel

    I think on a value comparison, G09(L) is much better. If you want order, I have lots of stock, $.75 for each grip.

    i have to swap between supergrap and G09 in alternate basis..because here no shop is selling RKEP grip and i am kind lazy to stock it from eric . Feel from both overgrips moreless the same to me. dat's why sometime i like G09 and sometime i like YY supergrap.

    I've been using RKEP G11's for about a month now and performance wise they last MUCH longer than Yonex Supergrap, also the tackiness remains quite good even after long usage.

    In terms of the colour comparisons, so far I've only used two, PURPLE and LIGHT BLUE. So far it seems that the purple one is doing better since it lasting longer while the light blue one is starting to wear out =P

    But overall at around $1 USD each, RKEP grips are a VERY GOOD deal
