Anything like tournagrip, but longer?

    I know that there is an XL version, but it only comes in blue, and I like to use black. Unfortunately I use extended racquets, and normal black tournagrip wont make it to the top unless I really stretch it, which kind of ruins the feel of it. Is there any alternatives(black or white)?

    Yonex supergrab is an option.

    Supergrap doesn't feel anything like tournagrip, but it is a fairly nice grip.

    Tourna is pretty unique in its on style. I haven't tried another grip that has similar texture.

    Tourna always reminded me of chamioux (shammy) leather cloth... anyone tried this?

    I have been playtesting overgrips and have run across a grip with a very similar feel to tournagrip with much better durability. It is put out by a German company and is called Wet-Grip. It should be available in the US by April. Will be worth the wait.

    Try the wildon H2Overgrip. Thicker, more absorbant, and longer.

    I just switched, and I don't need to replace them anywhere near as often.

    That Wilson H2Overgrip looks promising. Any other opinions?

    I used the Wilson H20 overgrip, very bad...top layer breakout quickly and leave pigment on your hand...

    Wilson Pro White Overgrip: good but get dirty pretty quickly
    Prince Duratred: good and i have the black version, last longer..

    I used both, seem to like it.. Everyone say the Yonex is good, i may try that sometime
