What's the color of the grip or overgrip you play with?

For some reason, I tend to buy black overgrips. Blue is okay, but can't beat black!

Ack... misspelled color. :(

Also white seems to last longer. Plus I decide when i need to change the overgrip by how dirty it is.

Black looks best on my sticks, but I also have red, yellow, and gray available as well as blue tourna-grip.

Presently have three with black, two with blue.

I only use black and blue overgrips, sometimes gray when there's no black. I like them because they dont look dirty like the white ones, so I can use them for a long time and still look good.

Using black you got extra duration, at least you don't realize how dirty they are :)

I used to hate it casue it would easily dirty fast, but "white" overwraps just brings out the crisp, fresh look of the racquet- more so when the pj is hot.

Yeah but most colored overgrips I have used lose all their tackiness after like 2 days. So i would have to change it while it still looks good. At least when my white grip is all crapped up and dirty, I change it and the fresh one is that much more awesome :).

Blue - I've had a few of these, got one left.
White - On my racquet ATM, got one left.
Grey - I got three of these for free for playing in dusty environments, not bad - they do their job. Just a bit dreary.
Yellow - Used about 3 of them on my APDC :P Got one OG left.
Green - I've got one of these. Okay colour, olive is nice too.
Red - Can't recall having many of these. I bought a pack of three 2 years ago and STILL have one left.
Other - I've got orange, pink, lime, indigo, etc.

I <3 Babolat MyGrip :shock:

I like a lot of different grips so I'll switch it up pretty often.

Black - Some random prince ones I got for free. I don't really care of them but give them away when my buddies are desperate.
Blue - Gamma supreme, Tournagrip
White - Tournatac and supergrap
Gray - Meh not a good color imo.
Yellow - supergrap
Green - Wilso pro
Red - Fischer
I also use Orange Pacific Xtack. I have red Supergrap but it's really more pink once on the handle. The Forten overgrips are also pinkish.

I just ordered some overgrips. Black, blue and gray! And at least one set of the grips I included in my last post. :)

Orange (Wilson Pro Soft).

I agree that Black look great, especially on a black racquet, but I havent found one that holds up as long as the white or other colored ones yet. (the Pro Soft Black sucks sometimes if you get a bad batch)

I tryed Gamma Supreme in black as well and it didnt seem to stay tacky as long as the white did.

I might try an extra red grip on one of my spare racquets. I have 21 spare overgrips. Will take me a while to go through them.

Love pink overgrips the best, like the Wilson Pink Pro Overgrips but all they sell near me now is the perforated crap....no thanks, my hands dont sweat. Do Yonex make pink supergraps?

heat010
03-15-2010, 11:22 AM
I agree on the pink overgrips too. The Wilson unperforated is the best. The perforated doesn't last too long. Tried the Gamma one. Good tackiness, but the pink is not bright enough. Like the bright color since it's fun.

I use either Blue (TournaGrip) or White (Babolat VS)

White.

Back in the 90s, I used to have all colors, Prince Duratred mainly. Red, green, yellow, blue, but oddly I didn't like black.

Although I hate when the white RGs and OGs get dirty, I just love wrapping a fresh new one. The racquet looks sooooo good!:D

On my Babolat Pure Drive I use a white grip, but it gets very dirty quickly and the white doesn't look as nice after only a couple days of use.

Currently using black :)

You can't go wrong with Black/Grey..... If you are wise and don't care about the looks of your racquet specifically go with black/grey....

Like other people say White Overgrip BRINGS OUT the madness of your racquet?... HELL NO!!!!

djNEiGht
10-12-2010, 04:46 PM
mostly white, and a couple times blue and yellow
i come from a cycling back ground and changing the handle bar tape makes you feel like you have something shiny and new. This seems to apply to me when i get overwhelmed by window shopping for racquet's...put on a new over grip and/or strings and i feel like i have a new stick! of course the sensation of new strings helps :)

i'm a novice with the game and also with strings. when i go to get a restringing done i'll answer the usual questions or what type of swing i have, am i concerned with comfort or feel, etc...

i am thinking of what kind of strings to get next and again i'm overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge and experience shared by everyone as well as the seemingly endless options out there. i'll just go to the local shop and again answer the questions. i don't think i'd mind a crazy color (one that clashes even) with my stick and then get a grip to match :)

I'm thinking of sticking 2 half lengths of ultra thin over grip together thus creating a two tone effect ! Red and white might work on my Pure Storm Tours ...

Since I let my 2- and 4-year girls choose the color...it's usually pink. Hot pink. But they've selected neon yellow, orange and green in the past too...and I've really liked them. Don't match my paint job (jewel tone red) but that's OK. It's not about how they look; it's about how they perform.

You're coolAwwww...aren't you sweet. As a "new" Mommy, I have learned how to give control over to my lil cuties (esp when I am indifferent). And the wraps are inexpensive enough that my 4-year old can even buy them with her own piggy-bank money as a gift.

Also bet, I'm one of few in here that lists a "diaper" in their bag-check! LOL

I can't believe white overwhelmed this poll. I've bought racquets with white grips and I immediately apply a black or blue overgrip. I might even look for red overgrips since the Dunlop racquets I have mostly have red paint jobs. But then again black goes well with just about any racquet.

depends on the brand. i stick to wilson and gamma og

wilson- all feel close to the same, but not a fan of the black. white, green, and pink are the ones i use

gamma- imo the grey feels best followed by white and then once again im not a fan of the black

White feels and looks great freshly wrapped! Black conceals what my dirty hands do but depending on the grip won't feel as good as white.
