Is their any white grip that does get dirty really fast or anyway to wash the grip er somthin.
To be frank with you, I've never really heard of anyone washing their overgrips and I would also be interested to hear the results of doing so.
How quickly does yours get dirty?
White will always get dirty if your hands are not clean.
My Wilson Pro Overgrip gets noticibly dirty after 3 hours of play.
even if my hands r clean and i dont touch the balls on the ground with my racquet hand (so basically the racquet never leaves my hand) and it still gets dirty...
the 'dirt' is actually the grease and oil from the sweat
mine stays pretty clean the entire time. It will stay white for at least 3-4 days and I play 3+ hours every day. wash your hands before playing tennis. that increases the lifetime of your grip.
Mine gets really really dirt after like 4 hours. I used a white overgrip for like 4 days strait and it was like black.
try the Klipper grip I've had really good luck with it and it seems to last a good amount of time.
i play outside and after like an hour the grip is greased up
mine go a sweaty brown colour and look disgusting.
When mine get dirty, I turn them over. When the 2'nd side gets dirty, if time for new strings.
THAT AINT A BAD WAY OF MEASURING STRING WEAR.
But I use a new overwarp every match... Maybe 2 in a hard singles match.
This is Tounas wer talkin about though, and durability is non existnt!
Yea i also currently have this problem with my white wilson overgrips, i really like white grips but i may have to change to blue or black. professionals can afford to buy new white grips but i certainly cant, like bsandy said, i also turn mine over and it feels just as good imo.
This is why I never choose grips of any color other than black.
I change my Overgrips rather often, so due to that they always look relatively fresh.
