Just a word of warning for anyone ordering the Wilson Pro Overgrip....

I'm probably the only one on the face of the planet who didn't know this, but the Red is actually closer to a Pink color than a true Red.

Just thought I'd pass this info along in case there happens to be one other person out there unaware of this.

I too fell into this problem. Opening the package from TW and there they were...salmon/pinkish colored overgrips...

I cant find anyone to trade me out of them either. Sure would have been sweet looking with my Six One 95 red frame and Red Code strings too...

Smoothone23...yea my wife described them as the color that those pink erasers used to be in school.

On a side not, I installed one of the White Wilson Pro Overgrips today and if you're looking for extreme tackiness, the Wilson XTra Tack is superior to the Wilson Pro.

Maybe the red gets darker after you use it same thing happens with tourna grip it starts out really light blue then turns a nice dark blue

I use the Red Wilson H2Overgrip. Couldn't get any redder. I like the dry feel.

Wilson XTra Tack Overgrip Red is Red...ordered some of it at the same time and it's a true red and much tackier than the Pro Overgrip.

I ordered the "Red" from this page: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACWILSON-PROGC.html# and it isn't red.

Thanks for the tip...if I like the White Pro Overgrip I got I was going to order some of the orange to match the orange on my new Maxply McEnroe racquet...now I know not to order some. I appreciate it.

I guess I'll stick with either black or red for the racquet.

The Wilson Pro and Yonex Supergrap have similar shade of red, which Yonex calls wine red. I too was disappointed when I got my Supergrap overgrips.

It's the one that says red under the picture of the red overgrips. The orange looks almost red (on my computer), there's the pink, and then the red.

Nah, that's not quite red enough. The Luxilon Luxi-Grip (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACFORTEN-LLOGD.html) and Forten Wrap Tack (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACFORTEN-FOG.html) are much closer to red.
