    I'm currently playing with the stick in my sig and i'm trying to find a good OG to put on top of the leather. i really like the sharper feel and would like to stick with it.

    so far i've tried:
    Wilson Pro
    Tournagrip

    those ones did not work out so well, they slipped a bit more and also i did not feel like i could hold on to the stick after a day of use.

    i've also used:
    Prince Duratred
    Tournagrip II

    these ones worked a bit better, i like how duratred doesn't slip, but i would like a grip similar with tire treads that is a bit tackier. II was just much more tackier.

    thx for suggestions.

    I use the Super Grap over leather grips and can maintain the good feel on the bevels.

    i use wilson pro soft OG and i liked it. it wasn't slippery for me at all. as for the supergrap that had more grip but once it gets wet it started to give me a blister. but i didn't compare the two grips on the same leather. currently using wilson pro soft right now and when that goes out, keeping the leather undergrip and put a supergrap on to compare again.

    For me, Tournagrip is good, but it's starting to become a very costly option. On top of leather, my grip is very firm, and bevel feel is exceptional (considering how tightly I stretch it), but it may be a bit TOO firm for my tastes... Also, that stuff is lasting me a two hour practice session before it's half shredded. It's a good grip, but unless you're sweating like a pig, it's not a very cost friendly option. I need to find a new OG now...

    id reccomend ProSupex overgrips because they are thick enough to provide a cushion over the leather

    Most people who use leather like to feel the bevels which is why thinner overgrips like Tournagrip, Babolat VS, and Wilson pro are popular on them.
