    Default RKEP Grip

    I just got an RKEP wet over grip free, has any one used one before?

    I have never used an over grip before and I would like to try it out, but should I try it out or will it do more harm then good since it's an unknow grip.

    here's a link:

    I find the Super Soft awesome when I have a G4, and the Nano grip when its a G5 or their non Yonex equivalents. They have officially displaced Karakal as my favorite replacement grip. My thanks to Dink-a-lot for the recommendation.

    I've tried the ones Dink gave me along with my T1 and I must say these overgrips are pretty good. They're quite tacky and last a while. I'm not sure which type Dink gave me though.

    I've tried out all of RKEP's overgrips and replacement grips. How much do I like RKEP grips? Well, tried a couple and liked them so much I bought 100. I bought another 50+ pieces off my friend too.

    The Wet Grip lasts well and is tacky. It is a thinner type. The neat thing about it is it is tacky enough that if you wrap it to the top it fuses to itself and I don't need to use finishing tape. YMMV on this fusing part. Like all other grips, there is a slight variation in feel, wear and tackiness between colours.

    If you're wondering why I bought so many grips, it isn't because it doesn't last but because I'm finicky about my grips and change them very often. Once per match during tournaments and or once per two days of casual play.

    IMO, most everything beats Yonex Super Grap. Except for Wilson Pro Overgrip. I've never tried the RKEP overgrips, but they are at least on par with Karakal, better IMO. But people's needs vary, so YMMV

    So I've tried both the G10 and G11 and I think these grips are really worth mentioning considering their durability and price!

    These grips are also quite tacky and thin, making them perfect as overgrips. I prefer the G11 but I find that once I play for a long time my hands get really dry. The G10 doesn't feel as good as the G11 but it doesn't seem to make my hands as dry. Both are definitely better than the Yonex Supergrap and on par with Karakal's nano50.

    How are the 1.9mm Nano grip compared to the karakal? I like the idea i don need to go and get it from store and I can get the color i want in bulk. I alway prefer white grip as they look hot! LOL

    The 1.9mm is more tacky than the Karakal Pro Duo, a bit thicker unless you really stretch on it (then its only slightly thicker), and very close stiffness/hardness wise.

    It definitely absorbs sweat really well. It kind of reminds me when we used desiccants in college chemistry, water really stands no chance against the Nano grip.

    That sounds very tempting, at least to me.
