Are there any extra long good overgrips out there? like longer versions of Wilson pro, Yonex supergrap, Tourna(the XL version of tourna is still short). Thanks

Wilson Pro easily covers a plus size racket, perhaps you are overlapping too much or putting it on too loosely.

I like to overlap a little, I do fine with standard length racquets...I'm just trying to look for something for longer racquets. Thanks

well...pull tight = less thickness = no point in overlapping...2 overgrips will slightly take away the feel of the handle shape...

The Yonex Supegrap is pretty long.

Why don't you install a heat shrink sleeve if the grip is too small.

pull your grips tighter and make smaller overgraps

Precisely, you should want the thinness so that the overgrip doesn't dilute feel. The only reason I use Tournagrip XL in conjunction with my leather grips is because I sweat heavily and cannot comfortably play with bare leather without slipping. I wrap my wilson leather and Tourna XL as tightly as possibly and still manage to have extra over the top of the grip. I play with the ncode and pro staff tour 90 racquets.

He's right, my brother and I both use extended length racquets and we both use Supergrap, and there is normally a little bit left over.
