    No more G08. So I'm testing other grips. I know who the OEM is and what model grip but cannot afford an entire run myself!

    I was in contact with him today, so he's definitely still active. Just try it again, maybe your first mail got stuck in a spam filter.

    How are the yellow g-10 in terms of tackiness? I've only tried the white g10.

    Guess I have to stock up now, since he's retiring D:

    Yellow is the best balance between tackiness and maneuverability (ie still able to change gripping quickly during rallies). White is next best but dirties easily.

    Pink is tackiest but impossible to change grip quickly.

    Been lurking for a long time and just realize I'm down to my last 60 G09. :(

    Maybe kinda late but I had a dozen grips I kept stored away from an order back in 2010 to see if there is any expiry date. Gripped two rackets up, 1 in pink and 1 in white and they feel just as great as a newer batch, the white one seems to show a bit more crumbling / peeling after 4 sessions compare to the pink. Compared to my ex-favorite Karakal grips kept in the same conditions and time frame just disintegrate after a game.

    I am totally satisfied with RKEP grips and happy retirement to Eric.

    Apparently he still operates out of his home(?) according to some recent posts on the RKEP socks thread. Shoot him an email.
