    Eric, what's the biggest difference between your G09 vs G08?
    Just the thickness?

    G08 SOFT75 slighty thicker & has a less tacky feel. Some say a bit of a cloth feel. Much better for sweaty hands.
    G09 Elite slightly thinner & has a very tacky feel. Depends if you like the tacky feel, but I will say do not use if you have sweaty hands.

    So basically, if you have sweaty hands - use G08 or G16.
    If you do not have sweaty hands and like tacky grips - use G09.

    Yeah but if you look at the chart for each of those grips on the RKEP store, the only difference is the thickness.

    Take it however you will. I am speaking from personal experience.

    And Eric has just summarized it here in post #929

    And look at the bottom of the ebay listing for G08 Soft75. Eric has used my opinion on the listing.

    I just discovered this thread. I'm looking for something that's similar to the Yonex Super Grap 102 EX. Which RKEP grip is most similar to that? Does it also come in neon yellow colour? Where's the best place to buy it from? Thanks!

    In my opinion, G08 SOFT75 is the most similar to Yonex Super Grap. Available colours here.
    My personal favourite is the SOFT75 #3 (i.e. Yellow).

    You can also try the G09 Elite but this is very tacky - so can be quite different from Super Grap.

    You can buy from Eric on his ebay store (just search RKEP on ebay). Alternatively, you can contact Eric directly via e-mail (this is usually cheaper than going through ebay). Payment is via paypal.

    Unfortunately there's no G08 with 0.60mm, since 0.70mm is slightly too thick for my taste.
    The surface of G08 is really soft and comfortable. It's like the legendary Wilson Pro Overgrip. Just thicker.

    G08 is 0.75mm thick, while G09 is 0.6mm. Thickness and feel wise G09 is closer to Supergrap.

    Tackiness of G09 will depend on colour.
    Black, dark blue least.
    White medium.
    Grey, yellow, green very.
    Pink extremely. (to the point where it can chafe skin )

    If you have extremely sweaty hands, then you will find that the G08 Soft75 is closer to SuperGrap in terms of feel. From my own experience, SuperGrap when wet was not as slippery as G09 Elite.

    But if you do not have sweaty hands, then yes, you may find that G09 Elite is similar to SuperGrap.

    for your arc fb, you got to get the yellow g09 ... perfect colour match...although very tacky to begin with, but becomes less tacky with use
