Don't know, don't care. I'm just boycotting Unique because they tried to sue other company on blue overwraps.

I don't love it or hate it. I like it when it's new and humid. Other than that, though, it is not very effective. When it's worn, it sucks. When it's dry, it sucks. You don't ever get a good grip until you start to sweat a bit. However, once you do get a grip, it's a good grip. But between not working well when dry or warn and not lasting very long, I don't use it. Wilson Pro and Yonex Super Grap are the two best, and Wilson Pro has a little better durability.

Don't like it at all. Started to tear within 30 minutes of play. I don't sweat much, so it really didn't provide any grip. I'm staying with Wilson Pro Grip..

people who hate tourna use it the wrong way. what you should do is wrap it over a leather grip, and use the xl version. it lasts longer and the feel is unmatched

I like it for about 2 hours. The durability issue has led me to explore other manufacturers that each seem to have their own tournagrip model.

how is the durability increased when wrapped over leather?:confused:

well, I dont particulary hate it, they're ok, but the new generation of tacky overgrips is def. better. I was more able to control the racquet without slipping. They're also more comfortable. Why a 10mins lasting-80s tech-cloth like- overgrip when you can get stuffs like Wilson pro or Yonex supergrap.

i am going to go ahead and repeat what every other person says about tourna, excellent grip but crappy durability. tourna is the grip i use because i sweat, a lot

I don't see why anybody would use tournagrip anymore. So many grips are superior and last longer.

tourna grip is good..to wipe my ***** with. it just doesnt stand up like yonex or the wilson grips.
i get sick of watching the commercial on the tennis channel... "tourna grip the orignal light blue grip"....light blue grip my *****!!

I like it, for me it lasts quite a long time (around 4 or 5 hours). It's not as hot where I am, so maybe that is a factor. Plus, I have pretty soft hands I suppose.
