    For sure tourna is the most used. Wilson Pro overgrip is second, but still a ways behind tourna.

    Ya, all tourna is like that. You really got to streatch that stuff hard to get it all the way up, especially with a plus racquet like yours.

    buy tournagrip xl :lol:

    i initially thought this question asked what kinds of grips pros used such as eastern/western etc. i think it's said that the prominant forehand grip is something slightly west of semi-western, but not quite western. one handed backhands a bit more extreme than the eastern backhand (more topspin). serves/vollies continental w/ slight adjustments.

    kreative, HERE HERE!! I also bought tourna grip regular at the start, but then went to the XL for reasons of length.

    You may have gotten a bad batch. That happened to me once. The dooshes at ATS Sports tried to convince me, a Tournagrip user for over 10 years, that fraying after 1 hour is typical with Tournagrip. It was a bad batch of grey grips.

    I told Tournagrip -- unique sports? -- about it and they expressed outrage, told me they're not surprised because ATS pushes Gamma hardcore, and sent me enough free blue Tournagrip to last 2 years. They were great.

    Wilson Pro Overgrips! (Do these come in any other color besides white? Wilson must be making a killing cuz they are white) I love those grips because my hands don't sweat. They are soft and grippy (is that a word?!?!)

    I tried both. I went from Pro Overgrip to Tournagrip, back to Pro Overgrip. If Pro Overgrip came in Black, it would be my Holy Grail!

    In order to get tourna grip to go all the way up the handle you cant overlap at all.
