    Yonex Supergrap and Babolat Stripy fit the bill in my opinion.

    Wilson Pro Overgrip is slightly softer, slightly more absorbent, but slightly less tacky than the Yonex Super Grap. Have never used Stripy. If you haven't noticed, tacky and absorbent are competing features...the more tacky, the less absorbent and vice versa.

    wilson pro white is a great grip. lasts a long time, like 8 or 10 hours of play if your hands dont sweat too much, compared to a tounra with max of 5 or 6 for me. also, its tackier, and becasue its colder outside now, taht helps quite a bit. tourna tackies are terrible, go with the originals if you want that style grip.

    I like the Yonex Supergrap, it's soft and tacky. I've never tried the Wilson Pro Overgrip, but I hear they're practically the same.

    The VS Grip is the original soft grip. They're not bad, do actually well on the asorbition front these days. The SYntec is almost as soft as teh VS but is slightly more tacky. Then there is the Symbio which is up there in terms of softness with the VS, but has little dimples and an antibacterial coating, so no more smelly grips. Personally, I bounce between Syntec and Tourna depending on how humid it is and all, but in the end, I always prefer leather, nothing beats the feel of a normal leather.
