View Full Version : The Lightest Overgrip PLEASE HELP!

05-11-2006, 04:24 PM
hey guys, what is the lightest overgrip you know? I'm assuming that it would be the thin overgrips but I want an overgrip that would be light enough so that it won't change the balance or the weight of my racquet. Usually normal overgrips such as Yonex SuperGrap can weigh up to 10g.! Thanks for your help in advance! :mrgreen:

It won't matter, you can't actually feel the weight.

The babolat vs and the weight aint the problem i think its more the thickness!!!

I found Tournagrip to be one of lightest. If you want to try and reduce the overgrip weight, stretch it really tightly so that you can cut off more excess. However, bear in mind that stretching it thin will reduce its lifespan.

You're worried about an overgrip throwing off the balance of your racquet?

You need to relax.

the babolat vs origonal are supposed to be the thinnest you can buy

I think Head Xtremesoft was thinner than Babolat vs Orginal.. Tourna Grip is pretty light, it feels like a piece of cloth...

So which one is it? Is the Babolat or the Head Xtreme Soft better?

I use the Head Xtreme Soft and it is the lightest I have ever used. ;)

I would go with an overgrip like Yonex SUper Grap or Wilson Pro. They arent the lightest but they are the best overall

babolat vs grip is light becuse it is thin!

You're talking about differences of less than one gram. Spread across the entire handle. Completely irrelevant. Any differences you perceive are due to a slightly larger grip forcing you to use slightly less wrist on your shots.

Cant really see why it matters but itd be the vs grip at a guess!
