    I am looking for some recommendations for overgrips that might hold up a bit better than tournagrip does. I have always used tournagrip but find myself constantly changing it this summer. I don't really have any hangups over color or style

    Anyone have another type of grip that they like and will hold up to the summer sweat and heat?

    i like the dunlop hydramax, they absorb just as good as the tourna grip and last longer.

    over grips are cheap enough for you to try em all faster than you can with strings. you just have to spend time finding the one that suits your hand.

    Dunlop Viper Dry for summer heat and humidity. I like Supergrap too, but for me it doesn't cut it in the summer.

    Something to think about...

    Please specify your thread a little better. For example:

    - Looking for overgrip more durable than Tournagrip
    or
    - Overgrip tackier and more absorbent than Tournagrip?

    The best overgrips I've ever used is Masterwrap overgrips. They absorb like crazy and don't get slick or that soapy feel to them.

    Since the OP specifically mentioned holding up to the summer heat:

    Wilson Pro - Worst grip ever for hot, humid summers. If you're not careful, the racquet can fly out of your hand into the next court (happened to me on more than one occasion). Good all-around grip otherwise.

    SuperGrap - Better in the summer, but still not great. If you use it in the summer, make sure you have wristbands, a dry towel, and preferably some rosin or a drying agent for your hands.

    You can actually get away with having sweaty hands if you use Tourna or Viper Dry, but some people don't like the feel.
