    Can anyone tell me what Pro's Pro GTacky or Super Tacky are like and how they stack up against Yonex Supergrap and Wilson Pro overgrip.

    Edit: Also if anyone has tried Pro's Pro Revoltec, Comet or Luxury overgrip I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on those too.

    I have tryied Aqua Zorb, GTacky, iTacky, Ichiban and super tacky.

    None of these can be compared to Yonex Supergrap or Wilson Pro overgrip.

    Maybe the other's that I didn't try can be the same as Yonex Supergrap and Wilson Pro overgrip...

    I hope they are ... :)

    I've actually used all of the Pro's Pro grips you have mentioned and they are for me, cheaper and far more superior to the Wilson Pro Overgrip.

    The Comet is pretty thick so doesn't wear out very easily the luxury feels exactly like a Wilson Pro.

    That may be so but in England a 30 pack of Yonex super grap is about £30 where as a 30 pack of Pro's Pro over grip is £11-15. What I'm looking for it something close to the yonex or wilson. What was it that you didn't like about them? Also what colours did you use?

    Do they all feel fairly similar and what is it that you liked about them (apart from the price :p)

    Also which one is closest to Super grap or Wilson Pro Overgrip?

    The reason I tryied Pro'sPro Overgrips was the high price for the Yonex Supergrap, so I tryied to find some cheap "clone" for it.

    Those I tryied, none can be compared to Supergrap, since they don't have the tackyness and can't absorv the swet like the Supergrap does.

    MattCrosby refer the "Comet", I would like to try it, or heard someone say that it's the Supergrap "clone".

    Do you wanna try it and give some feedback about it ?

    I thought whatever Pro Pro's overgrip I had that one of my friends gave me was nothing compared to the Yonex Supergrap. Pro Pro's lasted a couple of practices and the color (which was red/pink :( ) bled into my hands...tackiness and sweat absorption was just ok but worse than Supergrap.

    it's has an extra dry feel, like tourna.
    excellent for a very humid summer.
    but lasts for only 2-3 hours.
    and also feels cheaply made.

    but as said above.
    for an above 70% humid summer,
    it'll do the job for a match or two.

    for average weather this will feel too dry.
    will be glad for a Gamma React equivalent ;)
    (i swear by it off summer)

    I've tried them all and still keep coming back to Gamma Supreme. It's tacky, comfortable, and lasts a long time.

    I use Ichiban most of the time and Aquazorb 55 when it's very hot. It doesn't last long of course, but it's very cheap, can be bought in bundles for not so much money. I think it was 20€ the 30s or something. In the end I don't buy big names OGs because while the quality is there they often for me don't last much longer.

    EDIT: Aquazorb 55 is good for sunny weathers where you go through OGs quickly and can't handle the price of a proper reel of TournaGrip. As Rozroz said it feels a bit cheap, sometimes the taint bleeds on the grip. I don't care as I never play without a OG, but if you like your base grips pristine it's good to know.
    Then there's Aquazorb Plus... if, while you don't have his wife, you have Andy Roddick's sweat issues. Even in absurdly hot weathers where most OGs just fail me I wasn't able to make it moist enough to use it comfortably. It's one heck of a dry OG honestly. It does feel thicker than the 55 version and IIRC doesn't stretch as much. I would try both Aquazorb 55 or Aquazorb Plus, but if you're hesitating I'd just pick a pack of Aquazorb 55 to make sure.

    Last long? Why? Just change them once a month for 50 cents and you are good to go.

    I have used Ichiban in the past and are currently using one of the others. No idea, but for the price I really like them!

    do you play in extra humid conditions? most grips are useless after a few minutes.

    I'm saying that to me they don't last significantly shorter enough than big brand overgrips to justify the price difference. Especially considering Tourna's price honestly.

    Currently using Gtacky in black and white. And you are right, not in humid conditions, nor do I sweat heavily from the hands.

    So for me, they are absolutely fine!

    I struggled alot during the summer months with sweaty hands and the racket slipping around with my usual wilson pro overgrips. I now use the pros pro aquazorb 55 overgrips, and wouldn't change ever again. Bought a box of 60 for £20 which should last me some time. Best pvergrip i've used.

    i agree on the price to performance life ratio; i change often so pros pro is a great option
    but tourna, yonex and wilson makes great stuff
    they all have their special characteristics
    eventually youll find one that works for you and it last you long enough to make it worth it
    i buy the buckets of pros pro and change the overgrips for the people i string, for free, because if I DONT, ill see that same grip next time i restring that racquet, a couple months down the road, its desgusting...

    I use the Ultra Tacky (Tacky) in the winter and Aqua Zorb Plus (Dry) in the Summer. The Ultra Tacky doesn't feel very tacky but never slips since i use in conditions where excessive sweat is not a problem. I prefer the Aqua Zorb Plus to the Tourna Grip.
