    Default New Karakal Ripple Wrap

    I just receive this is new Karakal overwrap grip, Karakal Ripple wrap. This grip is similar with Kimony KGT 105 with thin sponge on its back. Its different with Ripple Grip. Ripple grip is a replacement.

    I hope it will be available in the UK, and soon - Yonex Wave Grap is my favourite, but it's not sold here, and this looks like being the Karakal equivalent.

    I'm not sure about that - maybe a little bit...
    I just find that the ribbed grip seems to fit my hand better - it gives me a much more comfortable and secure hold on the racket (compared to the non-ribbed supergrap).
    To be honest, vibration isn't an issue for me at all (with either wavegrap or supergrap), and I use just a single overgrip wrapped directly onto the handle (not over the top of another grip).
    Why don't you just try it out for yourself - it's not going to cost you much.

    I agree with Sketchy completely.
    Which is why I use Toalson Volcanic which are readily available in the UK from W&D.
    Have you tried those Sketchy? - Maybe a good alternative to the unavailable Yonex Wave Grap? (That I've not tried, but would like to!)

    I too hope these are easily/readily available in the UK soon though!

    I was a big fan of the Karakal Ripple Grip (Replacement version) but I felt it was maybe too big. I would be interested to see how this grip performs. anyone know where to get it from ?

    I get it from Bontang, a small city in Borneo. I cant find it in Bandung or Jakarta.
