    Babolat VS takes away the least feel out of any overgrip I've tried, and it also feels the softest and absorbs the most sweat to me.

    Wilson Pro Overgrip. Tourna is way too dry for my hands.

    Tourna Original Overgrips or Tecnifibre Player's Wrap Overgrips have to be my favorites!

    I've tried a good amount of overgrips. I've tried DuraTac by Prince, DuraTread by Prince, the Wilson Pro, the Wilson H2Overgrip, Wilson Pro Soft (or whatever it's called) Tournagrip Original, some overgrip by Head (it was blue and was really thin and had a strange design on it), the Yonex Supergrap, Babolat VS Original, Tournagrip Hi-Tack (or whatever it was called) and TENDER (a knockoff brand here in Mexico) Pro Overgrip.

    Out of all of them, I have to go with the good old Wilson Pro. Nothing beats the feeling of it over a leather grip. I have yet to try Tournagrip II, but I hear it's good. Might have to check it out this summer.

    Also, am I the only one whose gets dry skin (like blisters and stuff) from using Tournagrip? It hurts my hands!

    I use Babolat VS over a leather grip. I like it a lot.

    I kinda want to try the Yonex Super Grap since a lot of people seem to like it.

    Will the Yonex Super Grap be good over a leather grip?

    Pro Supex is very tacky and stays that way for quite a while also.

    I am in the process of trying a lot of grips out. Tonight, Tourna Tac is on deck. Wilson Pro Perforated looks like a contender, but would love to try the Kimono and Solinco mentioned above. But I don't want to commit to 30 Solincos. Oh, well, guess I'll just have to see what works.

    Signum pro tour grip if you want to go a little cheaper.

    Never used wilson pro because where I normally buy they are way more expensive, but on TW Europe that are pretty much the samr price as supergrap or tourna so they are probably good too.

    I tried the red one but a long time ago. And I think I also played with white ones if I recall correctly but they both weren't as good, let alone better, than Supergrap or Tourna grip imo.

    Ok, thanks. I'll probably pass on trying it unless I can find a single to buy.

    I've been really happy with babolat vs original grip. Doesn't last that long but has a great dry feel and is super thin.

    I really like the Dunlop Gecko tac overgrips. Very tacky and non-abrasive to touch. I like them so much I've decided to use them on my squash racquets as well.

    In terms of babolat I prefer the Pro Tour overgrips over the VS ones, but Dunlop is still better imo if you are after tack and a nice smooth feeling grip (also more durable, but i don't go through many overgrips). I haven't tried many others though.

    i have just started using leather on my main stick and haven't used an overgrip on it yet. Will report when i do.

    What do you guys like to use over leather?

    Thats so spooky that you mention the Gecko Tac. I am looking to try those out too. Ive noticed the Dunlop overgrips have a slightly thicker feel to them, which is what I'm after, plus I like the tacky overgrips.

    I like Supergrap, but it seems to wear down very quickly where my thumb sits.

    I tried that and really wanted to get on with it but I found it too slippery and not tacky enough. Shame really. But glad you like it, it looks good.

    Its very hard to beat. There are some that are as good, but not many better IMO. I just find some colours less durable than good ol' white.

    Tried some of the Orange, but really don't like them at all. This thread is very interesting, as this seems like it may be the most personal choice for all people. That being said, my favorite 3 are Wilson Pro Perforted, Supergrap, and Volkl V Tac.

    definitely a personal choice... i like to experiment with different types to see what works and under what conditions.

    i guess i haven't fallen in love with (or maybe become superstitious about!) any particular grip yet.

    I have read a few reviews where different colour supergrap has a different feel. The white seems to offer the best tack.

    I usually use the white over leather but would like an over grip with similar feel but a bit more durable.

    Yonex dry grap. A bit like tourna but feels better and last longer. They used to sell them in Sweden but now I had to order them from Canada.

    My top 5 favorites [in order]:

    1. Klipper Overgrip - White [I would use this overgrip, but it's too wide, which makes it difficult to wrap on a 4 3/8 grip & I'm very picky how overgrips are wrapped]

    2. Solinco Wonder Grip Overgrip - White [Current Overgrip]

    3. Gamma Grip 2 - White

    4. Yonex Supergrap - White

    5. Wilson Pro Overgrip - White

    lol, reviving another old thread since I was researching "best overgrip"... my $0.02 which I don't think anyone posted:

    There seem to be 2 kinds of grips:
    1) Tacky - (aka. Wilson Pro) great if you don't sweat much or live in a dry area
    2) Dry - (aka. Tournagrip) necessary if you sweat alot and/or play in humid areas

    I think preference is going to depend on some other factors too (but basically boil down to "how dry can you keep your grip"):
    * do you change shirts often? (eg. wet shirts eventually brush your grip)
    * do you play shirtless? (eg. sweat eventually more likely to get on your grip)
    * are you in shape? (lol, it you're out of shape, you're gonna sweat more)
    * do you where wrist bands? (or the moisture wicking/compression sleeve thing that Raonic wears), and do you change them often?

    That said, living in the east coast, during hot humid summer heat, tourna grip is my fave, all other times (90%) Wilson Pro. Often in mildly wet conditions, I'm ok using Wilson Pro + https://www.dryhands.com/
