    I get really sweaty hands after about 15 minutes to the point where it effects my level of play. Can anyone refer me to a good overgrip to solve this problem?

    I think for sweaty hands, Tournagrip's the best.

    If you dont mind swapping it out every day or perhaps during a match because it is not durable at all.

    i remember seing it. i even bought it once. i use yonex super grap or wilson pro overgrip but i need something absorbent like tourna grip. the problem is i like the white with the k blade 93, not the tourna grip, but performance comes before style so i will switch to tourna grip blue if not, but still, the white tourna grip if they have would be nice :)

    Yeah, tourna grip, but you have to change it really quick...I have sweaty hands and personally like Wilson Pro Overgrip better though.

    Tourna Grips would do the job.

    I guess I will be the dissenter and say Gamma Supreme Overgrip works better for me than Tourna. Tourna is done in one set. Gamma lasts three to four matches for me.

    why are people saying tourna 2 feels like original when it wears out? when it wears out, it's WORN OUT. not like original tournagrip.

    to the OP. i've tried Babolat VS, and found it has very excellent absorption, and it comes in white 12 packs. but for sweaty hands, tourna grip is the very best, hands down.

    don't get yonex supergrap or wilson pro overgrip. they simply don't absorb more than a few drops of sweat. theyre good for light to moderate sweaters, but NOT for heavy sweaters.

    Prince "No Sweat!" is the best I have found. It lasts me 4 or 5 matches..

    Wilson Pro Overgrip and Pro Supex overgrips both work great
