    the glossy tape is considerably thicker which would be awesome if it was more elastic. no matter how i tape it, whether to tape it without stretching it too much or taping it while trying to stretch it, after a few hours it comes off. the only solution is to heat up the tape so the glue is more sticky which keeps the tape in place. this is where yonex is superior.
    on the other hand, the matte tape that came with the green G09 grip works very well, it's thinner and stretches a bit better to form better contact with the cone of the racket. this tape i didn't need to use my cigar lighter for the heating part of the gripping process.
    i have no problem with the grip itself tho i'm used to a grip that also stretches a bit more, but seeing how thick it is, i actually didn't mind pulling harder just to grip it the way i like it. tho the smell is unpleasant, i can deal with it just fine since i air out my rackets after i play by hanging it back on a rack mounted on my wall. i wasn't used to the sticky grip that could last so long at first, but now i'm used to it. i found that there is a grip by gamma that is even more tacky and lasts a bit longer too, but it's actually a bad thing because it also attracts a lot of dirt and dust particles. the G09 is just fine, grippy enough to last about a month, then i change it out, but not too grippy that it just gets dirty by sitting there.

    with any tacky grip comes with the fact that it won't absorb that much sweat, and actually with any tacky grip when it gets a bit of sweat it gets slippery. all i did was wear a wrist band. i'd rather wear a wrist band and keep the grip, than to change to a not so grippy grip and have a chance of my racket flying everywhere, and out of my hand

    that is my review after almost 100 grips of the G09 grip.
    So would you try out any other grip or you're sticking with the G09?

    Just do what I do, no grip tape needed if you wrap the grip so that you end up with the tapered sticky end at the cone.
    Just buy a roll of nitto tape from MBS.

    Will you continue to sell the old version? Or is it being replaced?
    cheers

    depend on buyer's feedback
    if most buyer prefer new short fur version (like V brand) that we will stop long fur version

    personally, i don't need a grip that grippy as i played more and realized, because my hands are pretty dry. the G09 is probably the grippiest overgrip ever, and the gamma supreme (i think) is a close second on grip. because of my dry hands, i still find the yonex over grap the best between comfort and grip. and i do change out my grip every 3 weeks for sanitary reasons, so i'm not too worry about longevity of the grip itself.

    obvious i'm an idiot and am too impatient to read all the posts prior to posting, please read the following post right below this one.

    G06 POWER MASTER 1.8mm: stiff, DRY, power up, tough, very thick feel

    G15 towel grip: quick dry than other brand
    after reading this i realized two things:

    1. i should read all the option of grips before buying

    2. because your product is great and your service is even better, so i will try the G11 since it's close to super grap which i looooove!

    Eric, the new thick heavy version of towel grip, does it still have the "dry quicker than other brand" property?

    basically it is almost the same to that of Y brand
    (expect RKEP is 12m and Y brand only got 10.5m)

    i am a big doofus. after going onto Eric's ebay store and checking out the pictures, i realized that i actually got a free G11 grip in pink that i have used and love. so yes, now i can say for sure that it is probably one of the best grip i've used and a perfect balance for me between grip, comfort, and longevity! will order more now, woohoo!

    After reading this thread, I decided to try the G11 and already ordered from Eric through Ebay and hope to receive it soon to test it out. Thanks Eric for the great response and fast delivery!

    I think I have about 40 G09s and they're fantastic! I actually give them out sometimes.

    I recently found a few G11s sitting in my bag of grips so I decided to try it out and at first application they're possibly even better than G09.

    I tried my friend's Super Grap, and it felt dry and I would imagine it would easily slip out of your hand after a few hours from all the sweat. There was also a lot of wear on the Super Grap, which I didn't think was even possible. As for the G09s I've been using, no sign of wear at all, except the dirt getting picked up on it.

    I mus commend Eric, and RKEP for developing such a fantastic grip, truly second to none.
