After one day of using Tourna Grip it gave me blisters. I love how it absorbs sweat but i can't stand the dry feeling. What about you?

Not really. I have calluses on all my fingers and a phat one on my thumb.

Not for me. Build calluses or wrap athletic tape around areas where blisters are happening.

The first two or three times I played with Tourna, it gave me blisters. After that, I'm fine. However, if I drop tennis for a few weeks, then I'll start getting blisters again once I start playing.

I've tryed it once or twice.
It didn't give me blisters, but I did have some irritation in my palm and thumb. Its not terrible, but the very dry feeling can be uncomfortable.

wow, i never have had any problems with tourna!

i think it has some tack in the beggining but is a little dry, then as it loses the little bit of tack, it gets a little wet with sweat and plays great!

I only get blisters from Tournagrip when it's cold and I am not sweating.

I get blisters from ALL tacky overgrips once I start to sweat, unless I use a rosin bag. When I start sweating like a Gorilla in a sauna, Tournagrip is the only grip that keeps me from getting bilsters!!

first, what's a rosin bag? and where do you get athletic tape? it'll definetly make me look more pro, until they see me on the courts:twisted:

A rosin bag is the same thing to see a baseball pitcher toss around, it's full of a white powder/aka rosin which absorbs moitsure. THey're messy, but they are excellent at keeping things dry that you are gripping. TW used to sell them...just try a search. They are less than $2 and they will last months. You can pruchase atheltic at any pharmacy or grovery store with a "drugstore" section.

I have dry hands, as I live in the Northern Europe (Scandinavia) and Tourna is NOT for me. White Gamma Supreme Overgrip is my all time favorite and I hate Tourna I and Tourna II is just OK.
