    I found the pink Elite offers the best tack, for whatever reason.

    On a side note, I'm now going back to the Ultimate - the Super Soft rips a bit too easily.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I guess I'll be picking up some pink, yellow, and green for the next RKEP buy.

    it is the best tape i have ever used. a roll will last 50-100 rackets at least.

    This is even better, colorful and re-useable.

    Essentially tight rubber bands... either on top of OR to replace the finishing tape. Some players may not like the feeling of it though (~2mm thick).

    You stretch it and slide it up to the shaft and wrap the overgrip then pull it down to cover the end of the grip, that is. I don't see why the 2 mm thick at the cone has to do with the player's feeling.

    probably affects the balance. i'm sure the rubber band is a few grams in weight

    Haven't seen much baddy action lately with work and being out of town but finally got the chance to play a couple sessions to give a quick review. For those that are wondering, both grips I used were White.

    G09 Elite
    The G09 has a firmer feel compared to Supergrap but in return has a strong yet elastic feel when I was wrapping it so my guess is that it will be a lot more durable.
    For those that have sweaty hands and/or love tacky overgrips, you should definitely give the G09 a try. Sadly, it's a little too tacky for my liking. I tend to change grips a lot so until my hands start sweating, the tack sorta gets in the way. Once my hands start going though, the G09 definitely instills confidence that my racket is not going to go flying.


    G06 Powermaster
    The G06 had a lower tack than the G09 but was only a little worse under sweaty conditions so I liked it better overall although it's not a fair comparison considering the G06 is a replacement grip. The sponge has a firm feel which gives a slightly better feedback but at the cost of weight. Compared to the stock Victor grip, the Powermaster weighed 4-5g more.


    Eric, my questions now are:
    1. Is there an overgrip with a little less tack than the G09?
    2. Is there a replacement grip that is lighter the G06?

    ^^ I can answer Q1. Just pick a colour that is not so tacky, like black, dark blue. I know what you mean about shifting grips frequently during a game. I do that too, very loose grip all the time until I need to hit. The white elite will get less tacky after a few hrs use; then it'll feel like a brand new supergrap for many weeks! You could try reducing the tackiness by getting some dust on it from a dirty corner of your house for example.

    The Ultimate is probably lighter than the Powermaster, but it's a different type of feel with the same thickness though. I can switch between rackets with both with no drama.

    I think the G08 is what you're looking for, also an overgrip, it is more of dry feel (like the supergrap), and less tacky but take note that the G08 is 0.15mm thicker, and doesn't last as long as the G09.

    I think the best 'website' you can find that provides details, specs, information and player reviews is right here in this thread bro.

    Tons of info right here in BC ! ..... i know i found all the i info i ever needed on RKEP grips here.

    If it helps, here's the link to Eric's Ebay page: http://stores.ebay.com/RKEP-racket-e...=p4634.c0.m322

    You can find more specs (eg; feel, thickness, grip length,tackiness etc etc ...) in there.

    I have bought some grips from Eric few months back.Eric tool a photo of my package and thrown in a G01 grip for free.

    I really like them from beginning. They are best grips I ever used. The G09L ELITE over grip doesn't have much back linen like other brand does. It can be re-applied easily. They are very durable. I play 9 hours per week. I only changed them because they are dirty.
    G05 ultimate is thicker than G06. I used them on two identical racquets. I can feel slightly difference. All grips are very tacky.

    I picked green, grey, orange, silver and light blue color. I like orange color more. These grips will last long time before another order.
