I’m reviewing Piksters SupaGRIP v1 Advanced Floss/Toothpick range of flossing aids.
Now, these are an option if you don’t like traditional floss and would like to have something that you can hold without getting your hands or fingers dirty with mushy plaque etc.
They’re a simple design but they have dual-action usability. On one side floss, with two connection points for the floss, and on the other side a toothpick.
They come in one colour which is a bluish/aqua colour.
Design and Materials
This product looks like it’s made from a plastic material. Very appealing and it’s a nice design. Very modern, almost space-like.
Piksters mentioned that the previous generations of this flosser were made with a multifilaments nylon, which had some issues with fraying and breaking, and they had to remedy this.
SupaGRIP v1 now contains a strong monofilament, PTFE tape, which dramatically reduces this problem.
But if you do have tight teeth that are really compacted together, you still may have the possibility of occasional fraying.
However, with this new floss tape, it’s dramatically reduced and is mentioned on the back of the package. Fantastic to be aware of when using this product.
Looking at the packaging, it comes in a really cool, clean and sealable package so you can tear it off at the top with a pair of scissors and then you can reseal it so it doesn’t get wet.
They shouldn’t get any contaminants or water inside the pack so they will last longer if you keep them in the pack, protected.
It mentions that it’s superior in floss, superior in the handle and a superior toothpick. Yeah, cool statement. Comes in a really vibrant package too.
Piksters go over some instructions for use on the back of the pack.
They recommend using interdental floss in a bit of a sawing action as you glide it through and slide it in between your teeth. Then you can just slide it back and forward as you reach the gum line.
When I first used this Piksters SupaGRIP I thought it worked well. It keeps your hands and fingers free of any muck, any debris, any mushy plaque that comes with flossing, old school way. So this is good.
I like the handle. It feels that the grip part is in the right spot. And I like that it’s got a toothpick too, so if you have any bigger pieces you can really get into it and get it cleaned out.
The tape feels very strong and secure to the handle parts. It’s very thin in diameter so it does get into those really thinner, really narrow, tighter areas of one’s teeth. I know I have some teeth that are tight and it has caused problems when I use interdental brushes that are too big.
So maybe using floss as part of your dental hygiene as well as interdental brushes, is a good thing. It’s something I do on a regular basis and recommend trying for yourself.
It sits nicely between your teeth and the gums. And you know when it’s enough, you don’t have to go any further, you feel it when you’re actually sawing down gently.
If you get a little bit of bleeding don’t worry, it’s normal. Small amounts of blood are good and it gives you an indication of how healthy your gums are. Once they stop bleeding altogether you know you have been doing a great job and improving your dental hygiene.
The important point to remember, if you consistently floss or use interdental brushes, bleeding should decrease as you go along. If bleeding persists, make an appointment to go see your trusted dentist and get a check-up.
I’ve tried and tested these Piksters SupaGRIP v1 flossers for a week, they’re holding up very well. I like that I’m holding a handle and not wrapping floss around my fingers.
I never tried the previous generations of this flosser so I can’t compare, but I feel like the tape that they’re using now is very strong. Piksters assessment of their product is correct. There’s no misleading information on their part.
They are thin enough to get into tight areas, but I can see if you’re trying to get into really, really tight areas between your teeth, you may find that it floss could potentially fray a little bit and potentially break (most floss does at some point). But saying that, the way it’s been designed holds up and is strong.
Price and Value
I think it’s good value for money. Currently, prices range from $5.99 – $7.00 for a 50 pack, making it very affordable at only $0.12 per flosser.
You’re able to purchase these online and in shops, like Woolies, Coles, Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, and in most pharmacies so it’s readily available and easy to find.
The other good thing is they have value packs of 10, 20, 50 and 90. A decent amount of choice is available if you are considering using this type of floss.

I was impressed by Piksters SupaGRIP v1 Flosser and Toothpick combo. Not only does it serve its purpose very well, but it’s also great value for money.
With the thin flossing tape used, it can get into really tight areas that sometimes a thicker floss may have trouble with.
The handle keeps your fingers away from the possibility of getting anything on them, so it’s a much cleaner experience to that of your more traditional forms of floss.
I give the Piksters SupaGRIP v1 a thumbs up and thought very highly of the floss and how it felt when using it. It’s up there with the best!
