    The temperature is dropping...which means that I need a new overgrip to suit the cold weather.

    Wilson Pro = No. Don't like it during the winter.
    Tourna = Demolishes my palm
    Pro Supex is my OG of choice. However, during cold weather, the grip feels too thick. The tacky quality isn't that great either for skin.

    I need something like Pro Supex grips, but SLIGHTLY thinner and LESS tackier. Any such grips?

    Less tacky for the Winter?! You need a tacky grip for Winter from what I see... the weather is so cold that playing with no tack grips will send your racquet flying! Anyways, I suggest the Gamma Supreme OG if you're going to think about getting tacky grips... By the way, what part of CA do you live?

    Well, I still need tackiness but not quite as much. My palm is extremely sensitive during the winter, and whatever I use, I get rough callusus patches.

    I live in the Bay Area. I live in a city that's like a 1 hour drive away from SF. It was quite chilly last night.

    Well, I've only used 3 overgrips so far from what I started playing tennis until now and they're the Tournagrip, Gamma Supreme, Wilson Pro Overgrip... Never really used anything other then that but I heard that the Tournagrip II's are a bit thinner then the first and tackier as well. Also, you might want to use some athletic tape if those calluses are bothering you.

    I just recently switched to Yonnex overgrip and I have to say I really love it. I have always used tournagrip but the Yonnex overgrip lasts a lot longer and has some grip to it and seems to stay intact a long time, plus it comes in good colors and it is cheap to pick up a pack and try it out.

    I was impressed enough to switch to it full time

    I've tried the Wilson Pro, Yonex Supergrap and Gamma Supreme overgrip and in my view nothing beats the Gamma Supreme overgrip in general and especially on cold winter days :D

    So try the Gamma Supreme Overgrip - I think it will be just what you're looking for in an over grip.

    I really like the Babolat Versus Teams' I think they are called in white. 12 packs for 10/11 beans!

    dunlop overgrips are pretty nice. i received a 3 pack for free when i bought my 300g's a while back and really loved them. but i've been using wilson pro for years now and don't think i would go back to dunlop anytime soon.

    How are the Super Graps? I heard so much about them, but none of the stores around my area carries them.

    I also agree that Gamma Supreme is better than Tourna, Wilson Pro, Babolat, and Supergrap. I have pretty much tried all over grips including at one time prokennex, all prince, luxilon, fischer, and on and on and I keep coming back to Gamma Supreme.
