    I was wondering what overgrips do all the playtesters at TW use?


    Thanks

    Grip use varies from tester to tester. The most popular are (in no particular order)
    Wilson Pro Over White
    Yonex Super Grap
    Tournagrip
    Forten Over.

    Is the Forten called Forten Wrap Tack? I see that it says it has tear resistant material. This is probably a stupid question but does it really not tear like tourna grip? Also which grip would you compare it to (Tourna,Pro Grip, or supergrap)?


    Thanks for help

    The grip is the Forten Wrap Tack
    Info at: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpage.html?PCODE=FOG

    The Forten grip is a tacky grip and very different in feel to Tournagrip, which is a dry grip - the two aren't really comparable.

    I would put the Wilson Pro Over and the Yonex Super Grap in between the Forten and the Tourna in that they are somewhat dry and absorbent (like Tournagrip), but also offer good tack (like the Forten).

    And, yes, I have found the Forten grip to be very resistant to tearing.

    What about the Babolat vs. original overgrip?
