    Is the PU super grip a replacement grip or simply an overgrip? or is there 2 different models?

    Technically it's an overgrip, but I think it's thick enough to be a basegrip itself =]

    using PU super as a replacement grip gives extra cushioning. using as a overgrip beef up the size.

    Karakal PU Super replacement grip

    The Karakal PU Super is a replacement grip....(1.75mm)
    The over-wrap grips are Nano 60 (.06mm), Point 4 (.04mm), Point 75 (.075mm) and some others...
    The very best of the Karakal replacement grips is the Traktion grip...it is just the very best of any grip made...will last for months and I play everyday...just does not wear out...have to throw it away because of the smell...:crying:

    Karakalkat,
    Any idea how thick is the Traction grip? Should not be thicker than PU Super.

    The Kumfy, Kushy and Nano 180 are extra thick replacement grips...The Traktion does not show it as being thicker but it does not compress like the others so it seems thicker when playing...

    Could someone tell me if the black coloured Karakal PU is better than the other colours?

    All the colors are made with the same PU material so there is no difference in them....Only between models like Peachy or Nano 180 etc. is there a difference in how long they wear and how much tackyness they have....

    As Sunny said, they should all play the same. I find the black one last longer than other colours because it doesn't get dirty. In reality though, my grips are dirty most of the time but just hide it well.

    IF anyone is interested in Karakal PU, I have quite a few of them in both solid and multi/splash

    I am also a large reseller of RKEP grips as well, and I am close to making my next large (>500) grip order, so if there is anyone interested, please PM for that as well.
