"Nano (1.9mm): a very stiff grip, excellent tackiness. Nearly no cushioning, excellent against sweat. In fact, under most conditions, the more sweat, the tackier. Very durable."
Hmmm, so little sweat -> not so tacky ? Just what I'm looking for then, little cushioning and good durability. Or standard tackiness already better than Super Soft? Seriously I practically have to moisturise, especially the tip of my pinky finger is nearly cork dry after an evening. Not as bad as in the beginning now that the initial tackiness has worn off. Not these grips ofcourse, some unknown brand sgbad added with the ZELM's (think it says MB, not even available in his store).
apparently it should be bone-dry

The grips are banana yellow. My picture is bad because of the location of the shot, a nightmare for any camera:
1) To the left Panda has natural sunlight coming out of 4 giant windows (output: probably 20,000 lumens @ 4,500K after filtering through the window)
2) Also to the left Panda has 15 x 23 watts (1,600 lumens each) @ 5,000K CFL bulbs in 3 modded lantern shade lights. These lights were on because Panda was stringing.
3) In the center, where the picture was taken, there's no light.
4) To the right, Panda has an overhead work light with 4 x 32 watts (2,600 lumens each) @ 3,500K. The lower color temp is better for seeing contrast in that location.
As a result, the camera is confused at all the different light output and color temps.

The Nano and King grip are significantly more tacky than the Super Soft.

Okay, so the yellow grips from RKEP are pretty bright yellow, nice thanks
But now that i read your explanation, it explains why the shadows in the picture are such a mess

The RKEP grips are by far the best over grips i have ever used. They are tacky, long lasting and value for money.

Been using the super nano grip for 1 month plus now. I am using the white color.
As compared to the Karakal PU Super Grip, Nano grip is tougher and less tacky. It feels more like a tennis grip to me. But as the time goes on, i feel the grip become tackier but still Karakal is more tacky.(Depending on color too, yellow and light blue is the most tacky, too tacky in fact). Overall a good grip, I will still use it.

Everything comes with price I guess. If you buy it at expensive price, it should last a little longer. But may smells. If you buy cheaper ones, it won't last that long but you get the chance to change it regularly. So, the price evens out eventually. I have many customers buying bulks from me so that they can change the colours regularly. Just like ladies changing their shoes... lol.

Based on all positive feedback above, I ordered some and tried it. Here are my 2c.
The grip looks and feels like YY102. Initial feeling is almost the same, however, after sweating, it is not as tacky as YY102 to me.
2nd, the length of PKEP is about 6in shorter than YY102. So for longer handle, if do 50% overlap, it is not enough.
So for the same price, I still go back to YY102
