Wear the doubles...
Currently using Nikes...

Anyone know of a more "dri-fit" type of wristband?
Something w/ moisture wicking???

Or...any tips on how many sets and ways to dry them out quicker, seems like I can't ever get my wristbands to dry out enough...other than washing and drying them...

Any tips on the best wristbands?

wicking is like getting sweat away from your body, so in a wristband it wouldbt be very useful, only if you wanted to get sweat away from your wrists.
i use them to wipe it of my face and neck. so i like that it absorbs like a towel, i just have some spares in a bag, and chnage them. then wash and dry at home.
i just use nike, but they seem great. only bad thing is the stupid tenniscourt tag in them is lame, and annoying.

You can make dri-fit wristbands if you want. Take an old dri-fit shirt, cut off a long strip, wrap it around your wrist and make sure it fits like a wristband, then sew it together. Taa daa.

leave it to the "ShowStoppa" for a Show-Stopping response...I like that
Probably end up buying more sets and changing/washing them more often.

Sometimes if I'm playing in very hot weather, I'll double up on a wrist band. I currently like the underarmor bands. Yes, the double size.

I would consider buying a good towel, works a treat!

Underarmor sells wristbands that have no cotton in them. They definitely dry faster than the 100% cotton ones, but I don't think they're quite as absorbent or soft.

You still need to switch them if you're sweating heavily, but they definitely come out of the wash almost dry.

So true...
Some of my players use them, although getting a nice nike towel would be useful...
If you use the towel to wipe away the sweat the the wrsitband to kind of drag over your upper lip and chin, they wont get too sweaty..
