    Hey,

    Unfortunately TW EUROPE won't be getting the Gamma Supreme overgrips, which is my all time favorite tacky overgrip for the fall, winter and spring season..... :(

    I get a good 4-6 hours and a decent extra 2-4 hours out of one single Gamma Supreme Overgrip, so I'm picky when choosing a substitute for my all time favorite - the Gamma Supreme Overgrip.

    Yonex Supergrap is not tacky enough and I feel the tacky feel of the Supergrap is gone after just 1-2 hours.
    Wilson Pro Overgrip is HORRIBLE (used to be decent), Wilson Pro only feels good for 1 hour - and Tourna Original is for sweaters and for the extreme humid and warm weather, not for Scandinavian Summer weather and dry 'OCD' hands :lol:

    So will have to get a substitute for the Gamma Supreme OG. I've heard good things about the Pacific Xtra Tack overgrips, which won an overgrip test a couple of years ago in a German Tennis magazine. But I always buy overgrips in bulk and in large quantities, and I can not get the Xtra Tack in 30 roll packs, only in 3 packs :(

    But I can get the Pacific Xtra Tack Pro version in 30 packs, so does anyone know the difference in feel between the Xtra Tack and the Xtra Tack Pro overgrips ?

    I know Tourna Grip Tack XL is also a good tacky overgrip, and will also test that one - have also heard good things about the Boris Becker Stripe Supergrip, but I can't find that in 30 packs either.......

    Looking for some help with information here !!

    If you can score Tourna Tack in 30 packs, that would be the ticket.... Pacific grips are nothing special.

    Thanks for info :)

    Have you had the chance to compare and test Gamma Supreme Overgrip and Tourna Tac XL up against eachother ?

    I would like to find an overgrip, which lasts just as long as the Gamma Supreme does......very few overgrips, if any, can last as long as the Gamma Supreme does on my racquet handles.

    One is for amateurs and the other is for pros...:lol:

    LOL, sorry, couldn't resist.... and I'm afraid I can't help you, since I haven't tried any of those.

    But have you tried Gamma Dermagrip? It comes in 30 packs and it's pretty tacky, although I'm not sure if it's as tacky as Supreme. It's thinner as well.

    Problem is that NO store I can find in Europe sells Gamma Grips, and since TW EUROPE came up, I haven't bought much at TW USA because of the steep shipping prices to Europe. So looking for another brand - will buy some Tourna Tack XL, Pacific Xtra Tack Pro and see what I prefer.

    If it turns out NOTHING can compete with Gamma Supreme quality, I will just buy 6 # 30 packs of Gamma Supreme and have to accept the $50 shipping price, and then won't need to buy overgrips again for 2 years time :lol:

    Send me an email. dadozen AT gmail DOT com

    I know a webstore in the UK that sells Gamma Supremes in 15 packs and they will start selling Gamma Dermagrips, just because I asked them so:p
