    tourna original feels best when you have to deal with sweat, tourna tac feels great when its not so hot out, supergrap is ok but it gets too smooth too quick for me.

    In threads like this you will hear about these four overgrips and then the ensuing argument over which is greater. They are:

    Tournagrip
    Wilson Pro
    Yonex Supergrap
    Gamma Supreme (the least mentioned of the bunch)

    Your best bet is just to order a bunch of three packs and try them out and figure out which on works the best for you. Good luck in your search.

    I use the babolat protour in the warmer weather because it stands up to the heat and sweat better than anything else I have used. Tournagrip for me lasts one set and then it is done. Wilson pro and yonex get too slick too fast. Gamma Supreme is my favorite grip in the spring and fall and the babolat pro tour is my summer grip.

    I love Yonex Super Grap, but it seems to wear out a little faster than I'd like... Anyone have a suggestion, while we're on the subject, for an overgrip that has nice feel and is durable???

    Wilson and Gamma are great if u like a little thicker feel. Head overgrips are great if you like real thin and tacky.

    Super Grap is like a Wilson Pro, but SG is thicker and less tacky. Not a bad grip, but I think Wilson Pros are better for me cuz they're thinner and tackier.

    I was very impressed with the Mantis and Pro Supex overgrips.

    Thanks guys. Ball feel or feedback from the string/handle is what I'm mainly looking for. Touragrip original is good, but doesnt come in white. Babolat VS also gives good ball feel, but they tend to run short. Wilson pro overgrip (old) seems give too much cushioning, killing the feedback a little bit. Gotta try this Babolat Protour. If it doesnt work for me, then I'll stay with VS and jsut pull it tight when wrapping.
