    As the title says...
    I'm intereseted in Babolat PRO TEAM overgrip.
    Haven't tried one yet....I'm playing with the Bab. PRO TEAM TACKY overgrip but I need more dry one since my hands are sweating like crazy (It's summer around here)...
    So is the mentioned overgrip good or can you advise me about other one (dry grip).???
    Another question...Does Babolat PRO TEAM overgrip come in other colour than RED or BLUE?! :???:

    If you want a dry grip, there's really only one worth playing with.. Tourna Grip. The Bab Pro Team doesn't absorb very well.

    Yes, it comes in black.

    It's dryer than PT Tack. I would look into Gamma Pro Wrap overgrip...it's similar, but even dryer...

    Yes I already know that Tourna Grip is tha bomb but I have some deal with Babolat so I'm sticking with them. :)
    I have trouble with tacky grips...they become opposite of tacky when in contact with my very sweaty hands. :-?
    I don't need that tackyness so much...
    Sooo I'm gonna try PRO TEAM.

    Wilson Pro Perforated, best overgrip you will find. I used Babolat VS for a while (which is completely non-tack), then discovered pro perforated and haven't looked back since, its dry, tacky and lasts a decent amount of time, the tack remains for a good 4 or so hours +

    Its either dry or tacky, those are two totally different feels.

    Yes.
    That's what I know for sure...Tacky grips aren't for me.
    I need some good dry grip.
    I was using Babolat PRO TEAM TACKY....it has superb absorption but it's tacky and becomes slippery in my hands. :mad:

    aah yeah, I just meant it absorbs sweat very well, hence the dry... Its a very tacky grip so probably not for you in that case.

    If you want dry absorbent Babolat OG's - look no further than VS OVERGRIP !

    It's as dry as the dry of all dry's :lol:

    I actually use both, but honestly, imo, Pro Team is dryer in the Babolat line.

    YES IT IS.
    Tried VS already and wasn't very pleased.
    Took some PRO TEAM OG's today...played for about 2 hours and it wen't well.
    No slipping, absorbed sweat verry well and most of all it is now same as it was before use.
    Looks almost like new (maybe because of the black colour) :)

    If you like Pro Team, you would like Gamma Pro Wrap even more. I switched from Pro Team to Pro Wrap, since it's dryer & cheaper too! However, too bad it's not available in Croatia for you. Have you tried TWE?

    pro wrap is too tacky imo, says dry but rips your hand... would not compare it to pro team at all..

    NO Gamma in Europe at all.
    Checked over in TWE but there isn't anything from Gamma.
    POOR us in Europe... :neutral:
