    TournaGrip (the purple one) is the only overgrip I use. Cheap, lasts 3-5 sets and absorbs sweat amazingly. Just make sure to get at least XL as the original size doesn't really fit modern handles (unless you like it like Gasquet).

    OP was emphatic about this topic, given his two exclamation marks and two question marks in his title.

    Dunlop Osmo-Dry is the best for those who sweat a lot.

    Love Yonex Supergrap White/Black/Red(raspberry bubblegum colored). Do not get the yellow version, it's tearing like toilet paper for me currently.

    I have tried many, many overgrips over the years. THE best overgrip for sweat absorption is MasterWraps. I have been using these for 10+ years. Nothing feels or absorbs like these do. They do not get that slick soapy feeling to them like a lot of the others do. Not too many places carry them but they are well worth finding. I stock up every year.

    I continue to use Supergrap -- it works best for me when all factors are considered. However, the very best overgrip I have found for wet, humid conditions is the old-school Unique gauze wrap (the blue stuff). You could play underwater and still have a secure grip with this stuff. Not good for soft, sensitive, lady-like hands though.

    we all know supergrap gets a lot of love her but the OP specifically asked for grips that absorb. Very sure supergrap does not excel in the schwettyest of conditions. Tourna is by far and away the best bet there.

    Yep so we better emphasize how great TOURNAGRIP is for sweaty hands. Nothing compares in the summer heat! ;)
