quick update, been using the same racket for almost three weeks playing about two sesions a week, about 3hrs per session. i still have about 65% tackiness left on the grip according to my palm. if i was using yonex super grap, i would have to replace the grip for sure. once again i have dry hands so maybe i'm able to preserve the grip for a longer period of time.

no idea. I grip it from the endcap first and never had a problem with the tape (put the grip on 3 racs already)
I can't put it from the cone first, the ribbed portion would end up there

Even so, the current RKEP adhesive on the end is not very good and I have to add a small piece of double sided tape to stick it more solidly. This way it gives a very clean look without a black band of tape on the cone.

something i also noticed when i gripped with different color. the purple color grip is a bit longer than red or white. this is strictly on the G09 grip since that's all i have. it's actually 7mm longer. do you guys notice that too or am i see stuff again?

second to final update
after playing with a new G09 grip for about two weeks, then leaving it on my racket without playing for 9 days in my room with temp between 69-72 degrees F, the grip is still like new. tho the tape came off the cone and is hanging loose, i think the reason for this is because when i'm done playing i always hang my racket back on my wall on a hook. a long hook can hold 15+ rackets and i have 4 which are situated right above the a/c vent opening. however, the grip itself did not deteriorate like the super graps do from yonex. i guess i'll wait till i finally need to replace the G09 grip to make my last review

Hi, may i know which RKEP is similar to karakal PU grip and the yonex super grap. wanted to try them out but not exactly which model to get. Thanks

RKEP do not have exactly the same grip to these grips
G01 SUPER SOFT 1.7mm: very soft and good hand feel can not last long
become slip when sweaty hand
G03 KING 2.0mm: very good hand feel if you like thick grip and could last longer than G01
G05 ULTIMATE 1.8mm: stiff and tacky feel, last long. Might be a little close to KA SUPER GRIP but too stiff might be an issue
G06 POWER MASTER 1.8m: dry feel (not tacky type) offering extra gripping power, lasting long. #1 selling grip REKEP replacement grip
G08 SOFT75 0.70mm with very good hand feel, good for sweaty hand
G09 ELITE 0.6mm tacky #1 selling RKEP over grip
G11 WET TAPE 0.6mm: close to YY SUPER GRAB but with power hole
G16 POWER GRAB: same base tape to G08 with stitching + decorative design offering wondering gripping power. Just arrived and got very good feedback.

=) hopefully it's good

i've never had more grip than the G09 overgrip. i think it's like the trident gum commercial. the G09 grip lasts so long you may never buy another grip again. of course for those who sweats, you might wannt replace it periodically or it may smell really bad.
