    i have been "returning" to this overgrip on a part time basis , but I'm sold . The traction can't be duplicated by Grap or Tourna-Grip. it gets better with use as opposed to geting worse like grap or its rivals and its cheap ; you can also replace in the "field" quickly not like the popular grips of today. I might add you must have a leather "foundation" to make it work. Last player I can think of that used it is Jay Berger.

    pro shop here at TW I think. You might like it. Worth a try only about 2.00 for about 5 applications .

    Search for Gauze or go into overgrips, unique, then there it is.

    Gauze is my preference as well, if I need to use an overwrap. Been doing it since I first started playing tennis (quite a while back) and saw Vitas G using it. Actually, as a dumb kid I didnt know you put it on over the leather grip so actually took the leather off and just used the gauze LOL. Still gave me the best 'feel' for the grip Ive ever had -despite all the blisters and just kept putting on the gauze until it was at a comfortable grip size for me. The synth overwraps just seem to kill the feel but gauze really lets you feel the bevels plus its only about 5 dollars for a roll.

    The sticky gauze is very cheap at TW. Do you really think it is better than Tourna? Only advantages I see are more feel and not a dramatic increase in grip size.
