    I currently use SuperGrap but just may try out some other grips so has any tried these grips that want to give a review:

    Babolat VS Original Overgrip
    Tourna Grip Original Overgrip
    Wilson X-Tra Tack Overgrip
    Tourna Grip High Tak Overgrip

    Can u rate all the grips on a scale of 1-10 with Yonex Supergrap at 8.

    So obviously if its not as good as supergrap rate below 8 and so on..

    Thanks

    NO!!

    It's supposed to stay tacky forever, immediately send it back to Yonex for a replacement

    ya its suppposed to lose tack after a while...


    look for everywhere you post (rackets, strings, other equipment, etc.), there's nothing wrong with trying different things or seeking information on different things, BUT DO A F***ING SEARCH FIRST

    no and you cant expect people to do that. what you can expect them to do is give you their opinions on how the grips were for them. then you decided YOURSELF if you will like them based on that feedback

    Tourna grip original doesn't last long but it absorbs sweat the best out of all overgrips.

    they wont reply to your thread. but asking stupid things like rating them and giving them insturctions on what to say is pointless. no one wants to waste their time doing it.

    Give pro white or gamma supreme a try. Your other grips suck apart from tourna original.

    In an attempt to help the OP:

    Babolat VS Original Overgrip: 3--Slippery, not much tack, and just not a very good feel overall.
    Tourna Grip Original Overgrip : 8--More absorbent but less durable than Supergrap; different feel altogether.
    Wilson X-Tra Tack Overgrip: 5--If it is the grip I am thinking about, it is extremely tacky until it gets wet, but once wet, it is plain terrible.
    Tourna Grip High Tak Overgrip: 10--Not the same type of tack as Supergrap; in fact, when fresh, it seems tackier to me. It loses its tack over time more quickly than the Supergrap, but it is much more absorbent the whole time. It lasts much better than the Tourna grip original.

    Hope this helps

    If I had an unlimited budget I would play tourna grip. But I don't. So it's Wilson Pro for me.

    Lleyton why not try them urself.

    Also u choose between dry absorabnt grips Tourna and VS , And tacky grips make your mind up.

    Have to disagree about the PK overgrip. I've been using the same one for 2 weeks and its still nice and tacky. I do give it a rub down now and then with a clorox wipe to keep it fresh.
