    Prince "No Sweat" grips are soft and very dry. Babolat makes some that I think are called "Symbio" that are also soft and dry.

    Super Grap is the best combination of asorbancy and tacky, I have ever used.

    Wilson Pro is more durable than Tourna. I like it better, but don't know how similar it feels to Tourna.

    Without a doubt, this has to be the most asked question on this forum.

    Edit: Btw, in case it's difficult to search for, if I recall properly, the majority of the answers are either Prince No Sweat or Wilson H2O (Super Grap isn't in the same category, which are: 1) DRY, 2) TACKY and 3) VERY TACKY; TG is in the 1st, SG is in the 2nd).

    Toalson Tournament Grip is quite similar to the original Tourna. IMO Toalson Neo Quick Grip is the best overgrip on the market. It's very durable and it just gets better in use. It's worth trying! :)

    I never heard of this grip before, where did you get it?
    Most of the overgrips that are similar to tourna(H2O, VS original...) dont seem to last longer than Tourna. I guess that's just because of the way they're made, they're all the same. I used to use Wilson pro and other popular grips on the market but they're too soft.

    I mostly use Wilson Pro, but the Babolat ProTeam is worth a shot, I think.

    Inside-out Microtac is pretty dry. Never wears out either.

    It's no secret here that I like Microtac. So, out of curiosity, I tried this. Did NOT like it. Yes, it feels dry, but very slick, too. No matter what side you use, Microtac's material just isn't very aborbent. The idea of a dry overgrip, imo, is that it has to be very, very, absorbent. The inside out Microtac might work for someone who doesn't sweat much and doesn't like tacky overgrips.

    Bab Pro Team is nice feeling but the durability is really bad.

    I agree.
    But it doesn't satisfy some people's need for a dry feel. Probably heavy sweat-ers.
    I say get a sweatlet/wristband and a thirtypack of Supergrap or Wilson Pro overgrip and be done with it. But maybe that's just me.

    I used tournagrip but i don't think it's dryer than the h20 style grips.
    I use dunlop hydramax. IMO, it works 3 times better than any grips i'ved used. maybe it's personal preference, but i can grip better with this nice grey grip.
