    Weiss Cannon makes a great overgrip but TW doesn't carry it yet. You can go to http://www.weisscannonusa.com/ and click on dealers to see who carries their products. I asked TW awhile back if they were going to carry this and didn't get a response. I think a lot of people would really like this grip.

    The WeissCANNON Mystery Overgrip is made of an elastic latex-like material that is similar to the Wilson Pro and Yonex Supergrap overgrips. The difference is that the Mystery overgrip comes in much thinner, measuring a comfortable .50mm while it's competitors generally measure .70mm - .80mm. A thinner overgrip is especially good for those who prefer to use overgrips but want to increase the grip diameter as little as possible.

    In addition to the advantages of being thin, the "Mystery Overgrip" offers a comfort coating. For those looking for a durable overgrip, with a comfortable feel and some tackiness to prevent slippage, this product will definitely deliver.

    VS is really thin but not tacky that's why I mentioned the Weiss Cannon. It's just like Wilson Pro or Yonex Supergrap but a lot thinner. Really nice.

    Agreed. The WeissCANNON overgrips are nice, but if you are looking for thin and tacky, the thinnest is by far the Kirschbaum Touch It Ultra. It comes in at .38mm. You can read about it here: http://www.kirschbaumusa.com/index_grips.php

    I'm using Gamma 2 and they rock. Been playing for 10 hours and still keeps its tackiness.

    Yeah, if you like them tacky and thin, that's the one. It has a thickness of 0.4mm. The problem with it is that it doesn't stretch, making it difficult to install perfectly over the butt cap area. The Bab VS, also, has a thickness of 0.4mm, but isn't as tacky (much more absorbent, though).

    you could always just get some supergrap and pull it really tight while wrapping it.

    Yes, that's true. But if you keep the 1/16 inch (1 mm) overlapping, you can wrap a 5/8 grip like my LM 4 with little problem. But yes, using it would be much more easy if they just extend the length by a single inch.

    Over grip impact on overall grip size

    Anyone have a feel or know about how much an overgrip like TournaGrip or Supergrap add to the size of a grip. I am debating getting rackets with a
    4 3/8 or 4 1/2 grips.

    For those of you who have used Yonex super grap, and Wilson Pro overgrip:

    When I tried both of these grips they felt exactly the same, other than the thickness difference, which you can barely feel.

    Anyway, both of them are made in Indonesia, which leads me to believe that they come from the same factory, and a are cut at different thicknesses/lengths etc.

    Furthermore, the tape given with the grips are printed on similiar black tape, as well being printed in the exact same color...

    Anyone know where the Weiss Cannon grips are made?

    A good one to try is Babolat Syntec - nice and absorbent - yet tacky and very thin gives very good feel...

    I believe all Weiss CANNON products are manufactured in germany, but I could be mistaken.
