    Default Ebay Discount Grip: Golden Set Adhesa Grip Roll of 15

    I was looking for some grips in reels and wanted to try something different. I have already tried many RKEP grips but I also want to explore other grips and prefer ones in rolls. Has anyone tried these grips? How do they compare to Wilson pro grip and super grap? The listing says that they have the same feel as them but cheaper. They ship from Canada and US and they have perfect feedback but there isnt a lot of detail in review.

    Sorry I forgot a link, here is the link

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/Adhesa-Racquet-Ov...#ht_2077wt_905

    The price is pretty good and shipping is fast but does anyone have experience with these? I don't want to spend $15 on poor short lasting grip

    wilson pro is pretty bad. they are too soft and thus they move around. i bought a pack and hated it.

    Yonex Grap is slightly stiffer but still too soft and the top surface is not durable at all.

    it is only $15 so you can try them out with much loss. if not good, just give them out free to friends.

    currently though, there is nothing cheaper and as good as RKEP, at ~$1 each it is unbeatable.

    RKEP grip is the shizzzznit!

    Tackier + more durable than yonex

    More durable than gamma

    I used to replace my yonex grip every week (approx 4-6hrs of play). I've had my RKEP grip for approx 1 month and it's still strong!

    I don't see anything out there that can beat the price/performance

    I really like FLEET grips, anyone know where I can buy a tub of them?

    Good luck with buying grips off ebay.. Sometimes, you can find yourself a really good, legit deal.

    I managed to get a box of 70 of this "Optima" brand overgrips for 4nzd. An unknown brand, but they're the best overgrips I've tried (i haven't tried rkep though).

    @jhirata

    yes I also use optima grip as well..

    I accidentally try it and get interested at the 1st sight because the store didn't sell karakal anymore

    result is amazing.. 9-10 against karakal.. its identical and fantastic performing grip. but still karakal is the best for me

    Yes there's only 4-5 grip mfc in the world. Everyone OEM them. So pay no respect to brand name!
    I have the best luck with the pro supex grips - here -

    It depends where you live, I managed to get Karakal PU Grips for 67p each, excellent value for money. I did buy in bulk though (50 grips) for our club.
