    Just use black electrician tape, divided down the middle to make it narrower. It stays much better.

    I tried the G10 and G09, but so far, I sweat way to much for both.. The 10 in yellow start slipping out of my hands within an hour of play.
    The G09 is far better, but they get soaked very quickly as well, it doesn't seem to stay dry. While I like the tackyness and feel of G09 when it comes to dry-feel I still think old-fashioned supergrap wins.
    Maybe I should try a different Rkep grip, but which would you recommend?

    EDIT: btw, I tried the G09 in white yellow black green blue and red. All the darkers colours where the worst of the bunch, but yellow and white felt good; but even they started slipping within 2 sessions and after letting them dry they just got soaked again very easily.

    ^^^ Would grip powder work with these pu grips? Perhaps you gotta start applying antiperspirant onto your racket hand before you play.

    Any bros in sg willing to let go a couple of G09 for me to try?. Getting 24 pcs at one go might be too much for me.

    You can get them off ebay direct from Eric, as many or as little as you like.

    Just order a bunch from Eric and some Nitto tape from MBS! To me, a bad (wet) grip significantly deminishes my performance. Now I can change it as soon as I need to and not have to try to prolong the usage and hopefully it will last longer than the other grip against my sweats too.

    Cheers

    Maybe it's just me but I don't think the RKEP G09 Elite lasts longer than Yonex Supergrap. It last just as long. However, RKEP has better value since it's half the price of Yonex.

    Anyone find that the green G09L doesn't stay still and insists on sliding about on the handle ?

    White doesn't stay tacky as long as red or pink, although it's already better than black or gray.

    Good to know.

    My comparision was white RKEP G09 vs white Yonex Supergrap. The longevity is about the same for both. But RKEP is much cheaper...about half the cost of Yonex. So I'll be changing grips every 2 weeks.

    Default Which RKEP Grip would you recommend for me?

    I have pretty sweaty hands but don't like super tacky grips. Which RKEP grip would be closest in firmness to Super PU and texture of Supergrap?

    Eric: Any plans on re-releasing the G03 replacement grip? ETA for new G11?


    On another note, anybody in Vancouver mind selling me their grip to try?
    Interested in trying G03 (King), G05 (Ultimate), G06 (Power Master), G08 (Soft75) and G09 (Elite).

    Willing to pay $3CAD for replacement grips and $1.50CAD for overgrips. Let me know what colours you are willing to part with.

    I second this... and maybe a list of stock weights as well
    Maybe Dink can make a new table

    G06 G05 G03 all got favorite
    Each one got his own preference. Very hard to tell which one is the best.
    You could tray each model first before purchase a lot.
    I could offer one each trial sample at sample price if you wished.
    Mail me at RKEPtrading AT Gmail dot Com (please change the right key word to correct e-mail)
