View Full Version : Wilson Pro Overgrips (white)

I've got something that will make u all happy. If u use the White wilson pro overgrips, does it frustrate u that they dont stay white for very long? The grip itself is durable if u can put up with its brown look, but not many can. So, when u are sick of the overgrips brown colour, dont take it off and put a new one on, flip it over! You dont get the same durability on the 2nd side because u've already worn the other side in, but it lastts for about 4/5ths of the time again!

IMHO a nice overgrip, and at ~0.75 USD apiece (30 pack) you can replace it as (in)frequently as you like...

other side doesn't feel the same thou. i think it's a bit "dryer" and not as soft, thou for some reason, i found myself liking the "other side" better for a while. great great overgrip, thx to a friend for introducing it to me.
Great overgrip, I love it. Why worry about how dirty it gets? The other grips are getting just as dirty, you just can't see it as well. In fact, the lack of dark-pigmented dye may make the Wilson Pro tackier and more absorbent than the darker-colored grips.

I bought a 30 pack because I could get them really cheap, but I think the yonex super grap is a little better because of its extra tack, which I need in the winter when my hands don't sweat as much in the summer, when I use the Tournagrip.

I used to use the tournagrip and then switched to the white pro overgrips by wilson. They last for such a long time! Unfortunately if I were to use the other side it would be just as dirty... I use a leather grip and it turns it orange. O well... not a big deal, I still love them!

LittleMAC, I have that same problem with the leather grip. I love those grips on top of the leather. They actually haven't been getting as dirty recently for some reason. They rip up a little quickly, but still hold well. Really cheap as well. Other side is too dry though, and I used it before I had a leather grip, and it ripped my hand to shreds, tons of blisters.
One of the best grips in recent memory.

The color.. doesnt bother me... I love the grip... On our Varsity Tennis team about 1/2 of us use it... I have a friend... his grip looks very ugly... I dont even want to touch it... The otherside I would agree not being moist and tacky as the original side... also, the grip would be very thin from the wear on the otherside... they dont really cost much, 24.95 for 30.. change them about every 2 weeks or so.
