    Then you might look for more comfort or more of a rubbery feel rather than tacky. Some people still prefer the tacky feel even though their hands are not overly sweaty.

    ordered another 2 dozen. 8x pink, 8x red, 8x green. so far those are the colors with the best tacky feel.

    at such low cost, i think it is ok to change grip every month.

    anybody from Malaysia or Singapore who would like to buy ?
    is it possible to share the shipping cost ?
    I would like to buy 100 pieces of Power Master grip ...
    Eric refused to sell to me directly, so maybe he wants to sell to others from Malaysia or Singapore ....

    I don't understand.... Are RKEP grips that good? I've tried their free grips on several occasions (they came with racket, etc), but as I can recall, they were pretty bad... not so tacky, and the reversed side was just horrible. I think the ones I tried were "Ultimate, soft, thin.... etc"

    Are these ones different than the ones you guys are talking about here? @_@

    A majority of the recent discussion has been on the G09, a thin overgrip designed to imitate and improve on the well-loved Yonex Super Grap.

    no way. Super Grap is really crappy. the G09 is miles ahead.

    supergray is neither solid, nor tacky, nor durable. not even close.

    I did not say Super Grap is good at all, I just said well-loved. After all, how many players swear by it and use nothing but it?

    And I did say the G09 was meant to improve on the Super Grap, which it obviously had.

    I myself find Super Grap useless except for in tennis to increase grip size

    If i'm not mistaken, most ppl were comparing the G09 with Karakal Super-PU grip instead....if it's anywhere near the karakals, i would say it's damn value for money

    It's either on par or better than the karakal super-pu.
    But i would choose G09 because price wise and the customer service Eric's provide, G09 pawns Karakal Super-PU.

    I finally tested out some G09 everyone has been talking about.

    here's some thought comparing to victor GR-218 that I'm very faithful to:

    G09 is more rubber-like on the gripping surface, GR218 is more spongy (furry after wears out).
    G09 is more rigid, GR218 is more elastic.
    G09 reverse side has absolutely no grip, GR218 has good grips on the reverse side. (this is almost a dealbreaker for me, im not used to overlays)

    so far that's all I can tell, I would really like to see RKEP grips improve on the reverse side.

    why does the reverse side matter?

    G09 is only 0.6mm how can you compare it to Karakal SPU?

    Guess I should dig up Dink's earlier review, hoping there's a spongy replacement grip in the RKEP bunch
