    I like to use the Wilson H2Overgrip, and theres a Prince overgrip that I like even better, but I don't remember the name offhand....it comes in white and feels a little like cloth....

    Anyway, after only a few uses, it smells just awful, like vinegar, not even like sweat. The Wilson one is probably worse....but I was wondering if the Babolat Symbio Overgrip helps that much or if there are other overgrips similar to the feel of the ones I mentioned above that won't smell so bad....or is it just me?

    I don't like the feel of the tacky overgrips.

    One question. Why are you sniffing your grip? :lol:

    Sounds like a health issue.I read somewhere that if your sweat is particularly smelly it may be that you don't work out enough(regularly) or that you may not be eating right.

    I knew I'd just get a bunch of useless stupid responses

    No, it is not a health issue. I do not smell this bad when I am sweaty. My sweat does not smell this bad. My clothes do not smell this bad. My socks do not smell this bad. My hat does not smell this bad.

    The overgrip smells, okay? I do not sniff the overgrip, okay?

    just forget it.... Babolat makes its Symbio overgrip with an antibacterial treatment to slowdown bacteria growth and eliminate odors....I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and used them?
