    I'm new to overgrips and have been using the Tourna Grip tacky. Is there any thinner overgrip out there?

    Head XtremeSoft is about as thin as they get. It's kind of rubbery, which gives it good traction.

    Yes ... Xtremesoft - 0.4 mm thick and does not increase the size of the handle.

    Wilson Pro Sensation is supposed to be very thin.

    Anyone tried the Bab VS overgrip?

    That supposed to be 0.4mm with a tacky feel.

    The thing is though, Wilson Pro and Yonex Supergrap are both more or less the same, both 0.6mm. Is anyone really going to notice a difference of 0.2mm???

    Surely with a light stretch before fitting, both the standard Wilson Pro and Supergrap will be thinner by 0.2mm anyway?

    My advice, try Wilson Pro or Supergrap. They seem to be the most popular and that must be because theyre the best. Then just give them a little tug before fitting.

    There's definitely a difference between the sizes of overgrips. 0,4 does not feel like a 0,6. Bab VS (0,4) is NOT a tacky overgrip, but Wilson Pro Sensation (0,4) is. In my opinion Pro Sensation is almost as tacky as it's big brother Pro (0,6), but doesn't keep being tacky at all. I would suggest Gamma Grip 2 (0,4) http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Gamma_Grip_2_Overgrip/descpageGAMMA-GG2.html
