    I've found that Gamma Supreme is quite long. I use the Yonex VCORE Tour 97, which has an unusually long grip, and the Supreme goes all the way to the top w/ a few wraps to spare. And I'm not really tugging at all while wrapping.

    I haven't measured any grips, but I did use Wilson prior to the Gamma, and tried the Yonex, and I can tell you that Supreme is most definitely longer.

    Whether you like it or not is purely a preference.

    Hi crism54 -

    SuperGrap is longer, but it's also not as wide. I don't have problems wrapping either one on a standard length Donnay palet length which is 7.5 inches long. If I wrap it leaving only about 1/4 inch overlap on the SuperGrap, I can cover about 9 inches. Although I have not tried them all, the two Pacific OGs I tried were amongst the shortest I can remember, couldn't even wrap 6.5 inches no matter what I tried. I would steer clear of those for sure.

    Here's the specifications you are asking for:

    SuperGrap:
    25mm wide x 1200mm long x 0.60 thick (25mm x 1200mm = 30,000 sq. mm)

    Wilson Pro:
    27mm wide x 1100mm long x 0.55mm thick (27mm x 1100mm = 29,700 sq. mm)

    If my math is correct, they are pretty darn close in terms of square mm, but the Yonex should cover a teensy weensy bit more.

    Regular Tourna is too short/wide to cover sticks well.

    ORIGINAL 99cm x 25mm

    Yet the XXL I buy in 30 packs cover well as they are super wide:

    XXL 100cm x 35mm

    The XL version is in the middle of the aforementioned

    XL 99cm x 29mm

    As for advice you'll get a TON of it here. You can read as much as you like about overgrips, and that can give you direction, but best if you just buy 20+ types and test them. Some are complete crap. Some are amazing. And those are interchangeable depending on a person's needs. Good luck!

    I don't like tournagrip.
