    G09: the factory do not have such color
    G08: might got the color you requested
    If you could order 100pcs per color that I will order this (factory required 600pcs per color minimum and 10000pcs minimum per order)

    Eric you beautiful man! (lol) Just gripped my rackets with the G11 you supplied me and much prefer it to the ELITE (G09). It's not as leathery and tacky as the ELITE but more textured. Similar to the Super Grap but not as dry or grainy.

    What I like most about it is the little holes in it. Imo really adds to the grip and feel. I will test them on court on Sat with a full review. One thing to note is that it is a heavier grip than Super Grap. G11 yellow is also heavier and tackier than G11 White, but we're only talking tiny differences here so nothing to write home about. Though going from Super Grap to G11 did drop my BP by 3mm to 5mm. But I used more grip this time.

    Here are some pics!

    Did you use Nitto tape?

    Yeap! SO much nicer to use than Yonex or RKEP tape. It's slimmer, stickier, tighter fitting and still leaves no residue. With the other tape supplied by the manufacturers, I always used to get crinkles and wrinkles at the top (unless wrapped incredibly tight), even then, after a while they used to get air gaps. Nitto tape so far has stayed on tight and is easier to wrap

    I agree with Naim. The two things I had gripes about with the RKEP, yonex, and Karakal tape was that they always crinkled at the top and they would always start to unravel if you did it too tight.... but if you taped it loose you would get the crinkles. Nitto tape absolutely covered both those criteria quite nicely in that it's very easy to stretch and it binds to the racket without crinkling. And the end part of the tape seems to be very tight on and won't be unraveling anytime soon.

    Anyway back on subject, I would actually say the power master is better handling sweat than the ultimate grip contrary to what Squash Eric says. Probably due to its softer surface and its numerous indents to give it more gripping area.

    Ok, so in todays session with I had very different experiences with the VT80 and MX80 compared to normal, and I can't help but think the grips had something to do with it.

    Firstly, swapping both rackets to G11 grip (VT80 Yellow and MX80 White) considerably changed the BP's, MX80's dropped from 301mm (Super Grap) down to 295mm and VT80's dropped from around 314mm down to 306mm.

    Today, I had a much easier time getting power from my VT80, and found it less demanding to use as well. Now whether it's because my shoulder is stronger now after taking a few days break after my last injury (as a result of the VT80) or also because the new gripping made it less head heavy, I have no idea. My guess is it's a little bit to do with both.

    Oddly, I was getting a lot less power from my MX80 as well. I just couldn't explain it as usually I'm hitting so solidly and clearing/smashing with ease. But today I was struggling a bit and had to put in more effort than usual. Also kept mis-timing hits by swinging too fast.

    At first I thought it was probably just my shoulder, but now I'm almost convinced the new grips and the amended BP's had something to do with it, even if small. People say that the weight and BP differences overgrips provide are insignificant, but I honestly disagree. I actually think they can make noticeable differences. Especially RKEP grips that tend to be a fair bit heavier than Super Grap.


    In any case, I've left yellow G11 on my VT80 as my go to overgrip for that racket, but switched back to Super Grap for my MX80. I just feel the lighter Super Grap overgrip and added head heaviness really help the MX80 deliver that extra smidgen of power. Whereas with the VT80, the RKEP G11 makes the racket a little bit less demanding to use and more maneuverable.

    Also on a side note, not only did Yellow G11 drop my VT80's BP by nearly 8mm compared to Super Grap, it also took my rackets total weight from 90.5g to 92.4g. Nearly 2g heavier, though I did grip it ending a bit higher up than usual (by about 1-2cm). Also, despite being a lighter (4U) racket, it is now actually heavier than my Super grapped 91.8g (3U) MX80. Still, at the moment I'm content with the changes.

    I think so far of all the grips I've used, Yellow G11 is my fave yet. Just a shame it's so heavy, otherwise I'd have used it on my MX80 as well. Just love the little ventilation holes. Really add grip imo. If there's a Super Grap version with holes in it, would love to try it. Though I'll stick with G11 for my VT80 for now.

    Props again to Eric for his amazing customer service and shipping - 4 days from Order to Receipt is just fantastic.

    The RKEP Supermaster is a very good substitute for Karakal PU Super. It's not as soft or stretchy, but I think this is a plus. I've regripped all my go-to's with it so Tuesday I'll have a good session and report back. So far, so good.

    One disappointing part though, is that the Blue colour isn't 'blue' - it's Turquoise. Eric, if you could get the same blue that's on the BS12, that would be ideal, but luckily the 'Blue' looks good on my BS10 so no biggie.

    Can you take a pic of those lightblue ones? Which of these is it closer to? A heads up for the G09L, the left is the light "blue" (more like lila to me). The green is awesome, well the rest including the green actually look like those on the G09 pic: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140427550953

    G11 water blue will be more close to the right one. However, they are still not the same color.

    Hey Eric,

    I've just spent a day using the Powermaster, and while I like it, I think because it's not as compressible as the PR Super, that it's actually too thick.

    I have a big hand, and on my G4 rackets with only 3mm of overlap, it's just a smidge too thick. I wonder how others with regular size hands find it?

    Just received my nitto tape. Take 14 days to arrived... Yeah, its slimmer than electrical tape.
