    Living in Florida, my hand gets rather wet in the summer heat and I am looking for a good relacement grip that provides the best TACK and will work well in hot climate.

    I have tried the Wilson True Grip and works very well in mild conditions, but as soon as my had get wet, the grip get very slippery.

    I cannot use an overgrip as that will make my grip just to big for my hand, so I need the best TACKY replacement that will work in hot climates (and also, I would prefer a WHITE grip).

    Thanks !

    So you are not open at all to using an overgrip?

    Any overgrips I have tried make the grip size too big for me (and that may be more of a mental perception than reality) so I am looking for a replacement that will work for me (both tacky and will work in hot climates)
