    Oh yeah, are Super Graps angle-cut for easier installation like Wilson Pro OGs are? It would be nice to have the little bit of tape on the tip to hold it in place too.

    I was referring to the Pro overgrip. The Supreme's sound pretty decent.

    Gauze is terrible. I used it in elementary school where the wood and aluminum racquets were gripped with gauze. It felt awful then and it feels awful now.

    With all the great overgrips now available, why would you grip your racquet with gauze?

    Well my son plays now and he inherited my sweaty hands. I know it's not the same sport, but I played raquetball seriously and I used to use gauze and it worked for me. I also used to go through three pair of gloves per match. Just trying to figure something out for him. I saw a spray on one of the threads and can't remember now where you spray it on your hands and you don't sweat.

    The best one I ever used was made by Sportmaster. They, unfortunately, are out of business. They were the best ones I have ever used. I try to save them if I ever need to work on my grip. They were out of Texas and were always at the ATP event in Cincinnati. If anyone has any I'd be glad to buy them from you.

    Rosin Bag

    Before I could afford to replace my tournagrip every set, I used to have to carry a rosin bag in my pocket. Kind of like Lendl's sawdust. It worked great, but it is messy. I used it all through high school. I am a big sweater. I tried all the adhesive sprays and what-not. ANd frankly nothing worked as well as the rosin bag. ANd they were super cheap. You will also get some extra play out of your grips. I just got tired of the dust on my shorts adn everywhere else. I kept the tennis balls in one pocket and the rosin bag in the other throughout my matches. I would toss the bag around in my hand, and then pat it a few times on the racquet. Excellent stuff.

    Gamma is more absorbant. I tried Supergrap and Wilson Pro and I just think they are one step below Gamma Supreme. Gamma has nothing written on the grip. I buy them by the 30 pack from TW and I love the grips. Best out there since they quit making the ProKennex overgrips.

    I do like the original tournagrip (never tried #2) but only for maybe a set, then i absolutely hate the feeling and then it starts to give me blister

    I love Klipper's white overgrips, in my opinion they feel very different from all other white overgrips, but they don't come in bulk :(
    So, sometimes I'm forced to use Yonex Supergrap or Wilson Pro when I run out (because I do have those in bulk), I don't mind them but they're in a whole different league then the Klippers (imo!)
