    Hello Mr. Squash Eri

    Is it necessary to use an overgrip after applying your Ultimate Grip (G05)?

    No. It's all up to you, whether the grip feels right for you or not.

    So you guys still feel the contour of the wood of the grip of your racket? Does it hurt your thumb?

    It is important to not stretch out replacement grips, so the grip can provide maximum comfort and preserving tack. If you overstretch, the layers may tear and become thinner and uneven, making it less comfortable to use and in a state where it's qualities are not at an optimal level.

    Kevin, if using the ultimate grip is still too thin for you, you can try the thicker ones like the King grip. But remember that feeling the bevels is very important for any racket sport. A good player should be able to instinctively feel where the racquet face is pointing by how the bevels and ridges in the wood feel in their hand. So while cushion is good, it is a bad idea to apply so much grip that you loose the feel of the bevels.

    i tried the 0.6mm one today, i think it was the G10.

    the initial feel and first game is pretty good. appropriately tacky and not overly so. feel is very good.

    a bit short though, i have to rewrap a few times to have it cover the whole grip's length.

    will post longer term review when i use it more.

    and in terms of sweat. only after 5 game did i need to start regularly wiping off the sweat on the grip. this was in a pretty cold evening.

    might not work with someone in hot and humid climate or someone who perspires a lot more than me.

    Did you ever try G09?
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140427550953

    G10 and G11 using Japanese material that it got some kind of feel to be about similar to that of Y brand SUPER GRAB grip
    G09 came from the same factory to that of K brand designed for best tacky feel

    I tried the G09 and it's really good. More tacky then the G10 and 11 and feels like a overgrip version of the Ultimate. What I find neat about RKEP is that the finishing tape actually stretches!

    I change my grips every 2 weeks or until it looks ugly/wear. But the tackiness is still going even after the grip turns grey. I don't sweat alot but it still stays tacky when I do. Feels better then the Karakal nano 60's IMO

    They definitely need to make it a little longer.

    Are you guys doing 50% overlap? I find that it just hits nicely undernerth the cone and I don't even bother trimming it to make it look neat. But I have a habit of always using the full overgrip no matter the length.

    For the Note:
    Yonex supergrab is 1200mm
    RKEP G10/G11 1050mm
    RKEP G09 1100mm
