    Personally it is the no longer produced ProKennex super wrap ovegrip. I tried Wilson Pro, Yonex, Gamma, Tourna, and so on and none could stack up against it. I will have to settle when I run out of the ones I have left.

    Tacky: Wilson Pro, in my opinion, then TournaGrip II, Yonex Supergrap, or Babolat Pro Team.

    Dry: Kirschbaum Blue Overgrip (beveled grip)

    Original TournaGrip is also great.

    Original Tourna Grip is the only one I use anymore. The Tourna II isn't that bad but I like the original better. Never tried the Wilson Pro, but I don't like the Yonex Supergrap as it slips in my hand once it gets sweaty. The Yonex is very comfortable though.

    I only use Tournagrip. Though, I've tried some pacific grips and wilson grips in the past and liked them.

    Kirschbaum Blue Overgrip!

    Kirschbaum sent me samples of these and they were awesome! I currently use Tourna-Grip though..

    Kirschbaum Overgrip Blue >> Tourna

    Tourna II. better than Wilson Pro after I did a comparison.

    Tourna II is more tacky than Wilson pro.

    For me....

    Babolat VS Original Grip (White) is MUCH better than Wilson Pro Overgrip or Yonex Super Grap Overgrip....

    AND

    Babolat Pro Team Overgrip (Blue) is MUCH better than Tourna Grip....

    Well.... But that's just my opinion....

    How about...

    I like Yonex SuperGrap and the new OG from Pro Supex, which has a really nice feel and slightly tacky.

    Try some Gauze tape, you will never have to worry about sweat management again. The wetter it gets the better it sticks.

    As a heavy sweater, original Tourna by a longshot. Plus, I don't like soft or spongy grips, even if they would absorb sweat (which they usally don't), so stuff like Supergrab is out of the question.

    Yonex SuperGrap and Wilson Pro Overgrip are very similar. I prefer Wilson Pro for it's feel, and that it's colors don't rub off on your hand or the handle, like SuperGrap does. That's my biggest problem with it, my hands and a white replacement grip turned green.

    I felt a Pointfore grip and I actually really liked it. It was new. I've never seem them in stores though.

    Babolat Original VS is too dry of a grip. It's OK for the first hit, then it seems like it absorbs the dirt and dust and gets real bad, and fast. Babolat Pro Team was better.

    I prefer tacky grips- like Wilson Pro and TournaGrip Original and II.

    I tried one Pacific overgrip and it was REALLY tacky. It was good, but perhaps too tacky- like it could easily give a lot of people blisters.
    Fischer makes a very good, very durable, tacky almost rubbery feeling, overgrip.

    Kirschbaum Blue is a good overgrip. It has slight bevels that someone may or may not like.

    BTW Rulo, I hear a lot of people like TournaGrip over leather. I use Wilson Pro ovef a Pacific leather grip- it's a pretty good combo.

    Best would be Wilson Pro/Supergrap and Tourna. Period.

    if you like the feel of the bevels, then stick with the VS, since it's one of the thinnest overgrip out in the market.

    if you want a little more cushion, try supergrab or wilson pro. I personally prefer supergrab since it feels better for me (and the reverse side feels better when i use that side).

    tournagrip is good during the humid days and/or if you sweat a lot.

    Definately Wilson Pro Overgrip. It plays even better after it wears out a little bit in my opinion.

  36. The best overgrip is by far the Prince DuraTac. They last forever and are very tacky yet soft at the same time. The wilson pro is just made to be used only once by the pros since they are sponsored and get them for free. They don't seem to last beacuse when I compare it to the first day with the third day, they are totally different from each other! Not a good thing!

    I've tried Wilson pro, Tourna, and Yones supergrab. Yonex is most tacky but doesn't last very long imo. Tourna gives me blisters; Wilson pro is just right :)

    Babolat Symbio Grip, Great Tackiness but wears off quick so I change it after every match but that doesn't bother me

    Babolat Syntec Grip, Not as good as symbio but stays tacky longer and more durable I'll only use it if they discontinue Symbio

    I'm incredibly fussy when it comes to overgrips (usually lose too much feel) and the only one I'll bother with is Volkl Super Grip II.

    Good tack, but not so much your hand feels glued down. Very long lasting, good sweat absorption and an excellent feel. Only down-side, for some, is that, while it isn't super thick, it isn't micro thin.

    I'm fussy as well when it comes to over grips. I had always used Yonex over graps but for two years now i have been using Wilson Pro over grips. I like them much better the the yonex overgrips
