    Since they have discontinued my Wilson Cushion Aire Super Tack Overgrip (put my last one on a racquet last night), I'm looking for a new overgrip that gives me flypaper tackiness.

    Can anyone comment on the tackiness (and durability) of the following overgrips?

    Luxilon Luxi-Grip Tacky

    Gamma Hand Print

    Prince MicroZorb

    Prince MicroTac

    Wilson Pro

    Wilson XTra Tack

    Thanks for your help.

    Wilson X-tra Tack has the tackiest feel to it, but won't help if you sweat a lot.

    I don't know about "flypaper tacky", but I have had very good luck with Prince Duratac. I've never had a racquet slip and it wears pretty well. Just my opinion. Thanks.

    TripleB, I used Prince Duratac for many years. Last year, I tried Wilson X-Tack and really liked it -- (very) slightly less cushy than Duratac and its tackiness seems to last longer. Agree that it's not so good if you sweat a lot.

    I also use Dunlop Hydratac. It's tacky and durable. You might want to give it a try.

    Maybe you could let us know what you settle on?

    I'll do it. When I order my new racquet I plan on ordering several of the "tacky" grips and see which one works best for me. I plan on ordering: Wilson Xtra Tack (yellow), Wilson Pro (orange, green), Prince MicroZorb (black), Luxlilon Luxi-Grip (red). I'll try to remember to put up my findings.

    The Klip Kobra are pretty tacky and the tackiness lasts so long. Give them a shot too.
