I've tried the Babolat Pro Team Tacky and only lasted me 2 hours. I've also tried the Super Grap and it didn't seem to last very long either. Any other tacky overgrip you would recommend that last longer?

Also.....has anyone try Prince Resipro Overgrips?

Tournagrip doesn't start tacky but gets tacky when you sweat. "Tacky" grips do just the opposite.

Pro Supex. They have a thick one and a regular one. Nothing else compares.

I found tournagrip to be pretty tacky even without sweating, but maybe I just dont notice as I play.

The only thing I found slightly bad about tournagrip is that the longevity of the grip doesn't last long.

^^ yep try gamma supreme. It is tackier and a little thicker than Super grap, and lasts longer. Its too tacky for me though and I still prefer the feel of Supergrap.

Ive tried many overgrips and my actual favorite is the solinco overgrip,

its tacky, very durable, stays tacky, pretty thin, only problems with it is that it only comes in white and the only place i can get it is at the La Habra Tennis Center, ive never seen it sold anywhere.

Pacific xtac is really tacky. I just put one on so I can't say how long it lasts. So far I really like it.

Yonex supergrap is tacky and lasts a while for me. This is probably my favorite.

Tourntac is tacky too but I'm not sure how long it will last either.

For me Tournatac keeps the tackiness longer than supergrap/wpro, which turn smooth after like 2 sets.

Babolat Pro Team Tacky, or Yonex Supergrap. I think Supergrap is a bit thicker and absorbent. But Pro Team Tacky DOES NOT rip on you!

Gamma Supreme are my No.1
Prince Microtac, Tournatac, is good as well but didnt last long

great find: I am always in search for the best overgrip, cause I sweat a lot and need to feel secure with my grip. I think the best one out there is Wilson pro white overgrip. To me, its superior to Tournagrip (which I used for a long time) and Yonex Super Gap.
I recently tried the Dunlop Hydratac white, and I gotta say, not bad. Its similar to the Yonex Super Gap, maybe not as durable as the Wilson, but not bad at all.
As far as I know, theres no PERFECT overgrip out there yet, cant find one that really lasts, even my favorite, Wilson pro over grip, lasts, at the longest, a week or so.

Thanks guys for the recommendations. I just used my last Babolat Pro Team Tacky and I'm just not getting a good grip hitting a forehand even when new. Maybe I got a bad batch. Going to try some other recommendations. 8-)

yeah, babalot might make some good strings but their grips are some of the worst out there. a shame really.

The grips aren't bad IMO, but they wear out quickly. Try Babolat MyGrip, one of Babolat's best grips.

To answer the OP, try this (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=314803).

I find they make some of the best Grips out there, but to each his own.
