I have used it and another product sold by TW--Dry Grip. I tend to use Dry Grip as I can easily include a bottle with my regular TW orders. They are both similar and in my view, work pretty well. I live in the SE US where it is very humid and if at all possible, I try to avoid overgrips. These types of products are more of a hand antiperspirant and when combined with a sweat band, do a pretty good job for me. Give either a try. Good luck.

buy a stick of old spice and rub it on your palms, same thing. Be sure not to rub your eyes after using it.

I used this product in the mid 90's. I was on a no overgrip kick for a summer. I used the Ultra 2 at the time. Needless to say, I was sweating and serving the match when the racquet flew out of my hand, smacked the ground, bounced up and hot me directly in the face (caused bruising a some scratches). My Ultra 2 had a complete fracture right at the top of the racquet head....I blame this stupid dry hands product. Never, ever did that before or since..:mad:

i actually just bought a little rosin bag from gamma while i was in texas. (not easy to find rosin bags in canada :)) it's rather small, i think i'll try to keep it in my right side pocket while playing. hopefully it does the trick. sunday will be my first chance to try it.

Let us know if this works for you. I'm very curious.

i'm hoping this works well. it would be worth the try for anyone as it only cost $1.99. after i had purchased this gamma one i saw a similar sized one in the baseball section of a sports store for the same price.

Shaun,
the rosin bag works well. the dry grip is some kind of liquid crap.

do you put it on your hands and tap in on your grip too? i like turnagrip but i'd rather be using a yonex supergrap or wilson pro type of overgrip.

if it's good for pole dancing, it's got to be good for tennis. that site is hilarious, they sell stripper poles!

yes..I tap it on the grip and then my hand. It works really well. They don't last very long though. I use Tourna also. It works well with that grip. Not sure how it would work with a tacky grip like SG or W Pro.

cheaper route, buy a chalk bag (used for rock climbing) from any outdoors store, then when you use up the bag you can refill it for pennies on the dollar

I used Prince Dry Grip lotion last summer until I finally bought some tennis gloves. It works well, but is kind of expensive.
