    Kimony punched overgrip. Would love to hear your thoughts; it's one of my favorites right now.

    Darklore, I would like you to try out the new Pro's pro Kudeta overgrip.
    They look very similar to a old Tyger overgrip I have, which I love, but can't seem to buy anymore.

    Have you tried Klipper's overgrip (white)? If so what overgrip(s) come closest to it?
    I've been trying for years to find an overgrip that compares to it, it has a very unique feel. I would use it but it's too wide, so it's very difficult to put it on Head's rectangular handle.

    Hi Darklore009, just want to get your opinion on what characteristic of an OG contributes to blistering?

    coming from tecnifibre contacts when I switched to yonex supergrap I started to have blisters. The first 2 outings with the yonex were great but on the 3rd and onwards it started giving me blisters.

    This is with the same amount of court time and intensity in hitting sessions and match plays.

    Darklore009, I've just played with the Pro's Pro Super tacky. It seems very familiar to Solinco Wonder grip. Even the way it stretches when wrapping it.
    Do you think these grips are the same?

    Have you tried the blue Mega Tac? It feels much more absorbant to me for some reason. Not sure if it actually is. but give it a try

    Hi Darklore,

    How would you compare the length of the Wilson pro overgrip vs. the Solinco wonder overgrip? I like that the Wilson overgroup has plenty of length to allow for buildup around the buttcap.

    Prince Dura Pro +

    Installing: The grip doesn’t stretch much. The tape is on the excessive side, so there’s plenty of tape for you to cover your grip. The tampered end is hard to take off sometimes because its so small.

    Feel: The feels is similar to the tacky grips such as Solinco Wonder or Gamma Supreme pro. However, it isnt tacky enough that it would stick to your hands.

    Absorption and Durability: The grip is above average for me. The grip does last longer than Solinco because it doesn’t shred as fast. It still holds up even after the 2nd week of testing. Absorption is average. The slight lost of tack is noticable during the 2nd week of playtesting it. But, it isnt bad enough that you would throw your racket whenever you do a stroke.


    Overall Thought: This grip does hit the check mark for me to feel comfortable while hitting. Although I did grab the pink color because its the only thing that the local tennis shop has in stock. If there’s a white color, then it would have lasted a bit longer. If your looking for an alternative to Solinco or Gamma, this one would meet your needs.

    Seems like I out-sweat the Yonex Supergrab, Solinco Heaven, both Volkl V-Tac and V-Dry and Head Prestige Pro. Though it doesn't last, I am liking the Gamma Super Wrap. It seems to be working fine for me. Even when it gets wet, it doesn't feel as slippery as others mentioned. It's cheap as well, so I don't try to make it last. As soon as it loses the traction, it gets peeled off and new one gets applied.
