What is the best overgrip. Lately, I've become quite fond of Tourna Grip, but I've heard Babolat grips are really good. Please tell me what u think.

Yonex supergrap. Used it once and now all 9 of my rackets have them.

what is a good grip that stays tacky yet absorbs sweat real good? i have been using the wilson pro grip and i love how it feels when you first put it on but after a little while it doesn't feel to great anymore. i like tourna grip because it always stays dry but i kind of like a tacky feel.
what do you think?

I agree with PS 6.0 Yonex are by far the best, they are thin elastic & tacky.

Tournagrip and tacky in the same sentence????????? NOT KlipperUSA makes a nice overgrip

Haven't tried the supergrap, but based on the raves it must be incredible. My faves are tourna and prince microzorb.

I think tournagrips are overrated in that a players experience with them will always be while they're fresh. They tear up so quickly that it never has enough time to lose it's "grippiness". More durable overgrips may be just as good when fresh but we usually wear them till they rip which could be a long while after they've lost their "grippiness" which gives us a memory-biased opinion of their quality. I personally agree with team Yonex. Although Super Grap is a totally ******** name, it does the same quality job and lasts a helluva lot longer than Tournagrip, yet costs the same. Go figure.

Gosen Ripple Grips - love it! Not too tacky and the ripples provide plenty of friction and grip.

Right now for me, I can't decide between Tournagrip Ultra Tack and Wilsin Pro Overgrip. The Ultra Tack feels better, but Wilson Pro Overgrip lasts soooooo long!

Wilson Pro Overgrip! Other ones could be just as tacky, but the durability is sooo good

The best grip??? IMO Tournagrip.

But what am I using.....Tecnifibre Players wrap(white) Not too tacky and looks good to. Why do I use it and not Tournagrip. @cause when you have to pay for your own...cheaper can be better.

The only down side with tourna is its durability. As Momo says' players only experince it when its new and fresh' once thats gone,thats it.

Wilson Cushion Aire Super Tack Overgrip in Black.

For tackiness and durability, nothing is better.

And yes, I've tried the Yonex Super Grap in every color (even white).

I'm partial to Prince Durazorb or Microzorb. Tacky, lasts a long time. Also like Wilson Pro.
The Yonex becomes slippery more quickly than the above 3 grips.

I like Supergrap, too. If your hands don't overly sweat, the Prince Duratred offers good traction and won't tear up your hands.

the yonex supergrip and wilson pro white grip are great. i still use my old trusty standby, the absorbmor overgrip; very tacky and very cheap.

03-25-2004, 12:23 PM
Do they make TournaGrip in white that looks, feels, wears like the blue? I tried the white Ultra Tack version...it ain't the same thing, is it? At least it feels (and looks) different to me. Left me kind of cold.

I've had good luck with the Babolat VS Original. Pretty durn thin, so it doesn't build it up too much. Seems to absorb well, has a nice feel, and lasts fairly long.

wilson pro overgrip, or yonex supergrap. supergrap is more tacky and elastic, pro overgrip more cushy and absorbent.

Of course this all subjective, but here are my favorites:

Wilson Pro Overgrip
Alpha Overgrip (great value!)
Yonex Super Grap

Yonex Super Grap in White or Yellow

I dislike Yonex Super Grap, a little too tacky for me. Prince Microzorb is nice and soft and lasts fairly longer than Tournagrip. I wish I could buy it in more than a 3 pack though. Gosen Ripple Grip is soft and textured, but the ripples get uneven and bumps start to form for some reason. Tournagrip is okay, but too dry, and durability is always a question. Sometimes it's okay for a game day grip. I wish Wilson Pro Grip was in black...

i used to love the yonex supergrap in orange. i thought it had the best feel for the longest amount of time. i can always use supergrap or wilson pro. right now, though, i'm into the white tournagrip ultra tack (super tack?). that on top of a leather grip? fantastic.

03-25-2004, 08:30 PM
Hit with a friend's power beam pro tonight and it had a yonex supergrap, and that is one comfortable grip. I thought it felt better than tournagrip and it seems to last longer too. It's also tackier than tourna. Now I can see why so many of you love it.

My brother bought this pack of 3 head overgrips with 2 sweatbands and a shock absorber at a local sports store and the overgrips feel like a replacement grip, and last much longer than the tourna grip that i usually use Any one ever use this or know about it? I think I am going to go back and see if they still sell it.
