    I've been using this overgrip for months and this overgrip is the best out there. tack lasts even after many many matches.

    So would you guys say this is as nice as the Wilson Pro or the Yonex Supergrap, but with better durability? Thanks!

    How thick is the grip (compared to other overgrips such as the Wilson Pro overgrip)?

    I'm probably going to be ordering a Babolat racquet in 3 weeks and am trying to figure if I should go with the 4 1/2" grip or the 4 5/8" grip...it depends a lot on how thich the overgrip I'm going to use is.

    If I go with the Wilson Pro I'd probably get a 4 1/2".

    Super Grap your raquet and forget about the subject.

    Haha, does that mean you've tried the prokennex and like super grap better? I have tried both supergrap and wilson pro (I like both) and I just bought some prokennex so I will do a comparison once the wilson pro on my current racquet wears out.

    Ok, I just put on this overgrip and it feels a bit thicker and has a more rubbery feel than the yonex or wilson pro grips. I know with the Wilson Pro I almost feel like I might rip the overgrip when I stretch it but not the case with the pro kennex super wrap. It seems to me that it would provide slightly more cushioning as well. I will post some more thoughts after I've played with it.

    If I had to guess I would think it probably doesn't absorb sweat as well as the pro grip or the supergrap.
