    One thing about G10 that I really like is that it's just the perfect softness and tackiness.

    Soft enough to absorb impact vibrations, yet not so soft that I can't feel the bird.

    Tacky enough to enable a loose grip for finger power, yet not so tacky that I can't change grip in the middle of a fast rally.

    Visor can you compare g10 to elite and soft (g08?) I haven't tried those yet.

    I haven't used G08, but G09 Elite is a tad harder, less tacky, and more leathery feel compared to G10.

    Here's previous review...

    For gripping, I do stretch the overgrip so as to make a snug fit n cover up to the cone of the shaft.

    G08 : Soft-75
    . Too dry for my dry hands, hence making it powdery, seriously lacking of grip
    . Cushion feel
    . Most likely suitable for sweaty hands

    G09 : Elite
    . Feels rubbery, tacky n hard
    . For moderate to sweaty hands
    . A tad thinner than G10
    . If G10 doesn't exist, this would b my goto

    G10 : Wet Tape*
    . My preferred overgrip at present
    . Suits dry hands
    . Soft cushioned grip, comfy
    . Tacky feeling
    . Sufficient thickness for my g5 gripping
    . Perhaps the heaviest overgrip among these four

    G11 : Wet Tape perforated
    . Thin n insufficient cushioning
    . Hence, little grip
    . The material doesn't stretch well
    . Holes r unsightly when stretched

    A small request. Will Eric ever consider producing 1mm grips?

    I have small hands by the way. My rackets are mostly G5 (based on Yonex's sizing chart) and I typically just use one overgrip.

    I use G08 (0.75mm) mainly and have tried various ways to fit the grip to my liking but encountered problems (e.g. grip length is too short, grip thickness is too thick if I apply two layers of G08).

    Would really love a 1mm grip if possible... preferably with the properties of G08.

    I suggest you to apply one base layer of plastic tape beneath
    before wrapping G08 grip

    Have you tried using cushion wrap or some form of thin wrapping foam below your G08 before? That can help you build the grip to be larger.

    All my rackets have a base layer of plastic tape beneath before I apply overgrip. The plastic tape is used mainly to give it some form of adhesive for the overgrips as they don't stick to the wood, but doesn't add much thickness to it... unless I wrap rounds and rounds of plastic tape over.

    Nope. Not sure where to find them too...

    Singapore has easy access to that stuff. I know the victor flagship store and e-link both carry the cushion wrap from victor. Idk at other brands though.

    Erm.... G01 on a G5-sized racket will be too big for my hands. Could be considered if it's G6 or G7...

    Anyone tried using the RKEP overgrips inside out? The underside of the overgrips seem less slippery than the topside so may perform better for extreme palm sweaters. Will test out and post back.

    G08 is playable even after I left it out in the rain. Just use that instead?

    I've tried almost every colour. G08 Soft75 is already much better than the Elite and miles better than the Wet Tape. But still, the Soft75 still feels slightly slippery.
