    I think it's like $3 for a 3 pack...why not just try them and find out for yourself?

    it has a dry feel, very absorbent, easy to grip, but after a few hits, the grip begins to fold over, and sometimes folds so much that the grip underneath is exposed... if u don't mind rewrapping the same overgrip frequently, replacing the overgrip frequently, or even if u don't mind playing with a folded grip, try it

    It's not the best grip I've ever used. I use it sometimes if I can find the American Flag version, but overall the grip sucks if you have really sweaty hands.

    I find that they are really good OS's... the ones I use haven't folded over... and they absorb sweat very well. They are also durable. I wanted to try them because of the fact they claim to be the thinnest of all the overgrips. They are definitely thin!

    Same in Portugal.
    That's why it's hard to try new overgrips on Europe! :S
    And same goes with everything related to tennis.

    I just tried them out and they are not my cup of tea. I found them to be thin, which I like, but they are not tacky at all.

    I think tennis in many European countries is for the more well off. Sounds like you gotta have money to play tennis, even if it's for fun or leisure.

    I am currently using this and I'm probably switching to tourna after I'm done with the pack. The grip is pretty good just when you put it on, but after a couple hours of playing outside, my hands sweating, it absorbed pretty well at first. But when it started to get into that grey-ish color, then when i was hitting some forehands, the racket felt like it was slipping in my hand as i hit the ball.
