    I have sweaty hands and usually use black yonex super grap. A friend recently gave me a pack of the yellow to use. After about a set the yellow becomes completely slippery and useless although looks new. Black I can use for a couple of weeks and I only change it when it becomes thin and ragged. Anyone else notice the differences between colors?

    I have heard the same, but I use the white and black ones and don't notice any difference.

    SuperGrap is the best! Whenever I'm playing an opponent, and I see that they've been struggling with sweaty and slick grips I recommend it to them (after the match), and sometimes even hand them one of the extras I have just to prove the point (assuming we've had a cordial match).

    Ya..don't order the red. It's a bubblegum pink color. Worked great, but my doubles partner kept making fun of me.

    Most people would find the white much tackier than the black.

    I myself use the white for the summer and the black in the winter. The white is grippier and lasts longer for me. At the same time it is harsher on my skin to the extent that if I haven't played in a while, it could give me blisters.

    I reckon you don't have very sweaty hands.

    Hard a tournament this weekend and ended up getting the dark blue since the shop was out of black. Was a bit worried since I've never tried the blue. Works great. Lasted me the whole 4 matches in a single day and will probably last as long as the black if not longer. Stay away from yellow!

    I found the pale blue to be more durable than the black and retain it feels better than Wilson Pro.

    white is my preference, everything else seems too spongy - except maybe yellow
