I just received a demo racquet from TW (Tour 90) that has an overgrip on it. I'm assuming it was put on by the previous person to demo it. I really like the feel of it and I'm trying to figure out what overgrip it is. It's dark gray (faded black maybe?), has a soft cloth-like feel, and appears to have very slight grooves in it. It's taped with some Gamma finishing tape but I don't think it's a Gamma overgrip. I think it's Babolat Symbio Overgrip based on the grips I looked up on TW, but I'm not sure. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

Probably Wilson Cushion-Aire, my friend uses something that fits your description we'll probably play on Friday, I'll ask, probably not gamma but I think he has gamma tape on it too, not sure.

Thanks. I posted in the racquet section as well on the off chance that the person who last demoed the Tour 90 might get back to me.

Demo... Im demoing also, what if I break the strings? Im a string breaker and multis break very fast... how do you like that Tour 90? Im demoing the H Tour MP.

There's no charge for broken strings if that's what you mean. You just return the racquet to TW and they'll restring it before they send it out again. I don't know if they'll send it back to you -- that's probably a question for them. I haven't hit with the Tour 90 yet. I normally play with the PS 85. I've heard mixed things about the Tour 90 so I thought I'd see for myself.
