Which is the most durable and absorbs the best? Also I which is best if you get blisters easy?
Tourna-Grip. It feels like chamois . Theres a reason so many pros use it .
I prefer the Yonex Super Grap. The Wilson starts out as good as the Yonex but in seems to get slick a lot faster than the Yonex. Also, the Yonex comes in a variety of cool colors. I have not used the Tournagrip but if you read the customer feedback about them it seems that its short durability is a common complaint.
I use both Tournagrip and Super Grap and I really like both equally. Tournagrip does wear out sooner, but Super Grap gets dirty. They both have a nice feel, absorb well, and you shouldn't have a problem holding on to the racquet with either one. Super grap in my opinion is little too sticky right away when you put it on. I don't think you could go wrong either way. Haven't used the Wilson.
I found the tournagrip to wear very fast and then gives me blisters easily. The yonex is perfection. Nicely tacky, comfortable, and no blisters! Definitely the best of all IMO.
I have used nothing but Wilson Pro for about a year now... maybe a 3-pack of Tourna... I like the feel of tourna ececpt it last about 1 set... it turns dark blue if you have sweaty hands like my friend used one of mine the Pro... about 60% of my team uses this... I have about 3 rolls of it stocked... I dont think I'll switch to anything else... The Wilson Pro gets changed about once every one or two weeks
I love the Yonex Super Grap. At first its crazy tacky and my thumb formed a callous but once it gets broken in, it's comfortable and amazing to use.
My thumb has a huge callis... so does my whole hand... oh well... its tennis sucks though... its like NUMB
I have used all three and I am currently trying to decide between the Yonex and Wilson. They are very similar. The TG is ok, durability horrible, and I don't care for the dry feel. As for durability of the others, I find they stay a lot cleaner and last a lot longer if I simply wash my hands each time before I play, don't even need soap, just wash with water. Both grips are great: the orange Yonex looks good on my 300G, and the Wilson comes in a 12 roll which I like.
Wilson Pro good feel absorbs sweat well
i hate my tournagrip....i need to get some wilson pro overgrips soon.
Out here I sweat a lot - I mean a lot. Used TG for years but am switching to Wilson Pro. Like the TG but durability is rubbish, I'm lucky if I get a set out of one. Whereas the durability on the Wilson is great, I find the slightly tacky surface really stops the handle turning and the absorbing power of the Wilson seems just as good. TG is good but it hasn't been updated for years .... must be time to enhance it a little.
Anyone else think the TG has got narrower as well?
Like most everybody here I have a callis on my Thumb. I use to use tourna but didn't like the durability so tried Super Grap and liked it until I started to get callis. Im now using the Wilson since it feels almost as good as the yonex but it doesn't give me callis anymore.
Thanks for all the replys.
absorption: wilson pro > super grap > tourna
tack: super grap > wilson pro > tourna
durability: wilson pro ~ super grap > tourna
that said, tourna's not bad, just doesn't last long at all, decent absorption, and thin.
i'd personally opt for wilson pro or grap, it's pretty close.
Wilson Pro Over Grip has turned out to be the best for me so far, TG grips are great, the only downside would be its durability. Hell! I use to change my TG after every set I play and it was just too damn troublesome to keep changing grips! Yonex is pretty good too, but i felt that Wilson's a tad more tacky.
as i said before, i used to have a high tack touragrip. i just changed to wilson pro overgrip today and it feels fantastic. way more comfortable than touragrip. more tackier also. not so much of a dry feeling either.
i havent tried the super grap, but IMO, the wilson is the best.
DUNLOP HYDRAMAX overgrip
DUNLOP HYDRAMAX ABSORB OVERGRIP is the BEST of ALL
What about Babolat vs. original overgrip?
Not too bad but not great for someone who is looking for absorbent grip.
its really too bad wilson doesn't make pro overgrip in more colors....considering its probably their most popular one and they put out their other overgrips in multiple colors!
wilson pro overgrip, white gets dirty fast though
i like wilson b/c of the 30 pack of grips.
the tournagrip is dryer more absorbent, the super grap is thinner and tackier.
imho--there is no comparison the super grap is far and away the best overgrip
I have to agree about the Yonex Super Grap--but which color? I've found that yellow and white are my favorite colors, with black being the worst in terms of both tackiness and durability. That said, I've switched over almost completely to the Wilson Pro overgrip. It's remarkably similar to the Yonex, but lasts longer. In fact, I think the Wilson grips are a bit more consistent in that they don't start out ultra-tacky like the Yonex does, but maintains a high level of performance for a longer period of time. Either way, you can't really go wrong.
TG is what I grew up playing and I don't use it any longer--just too little grip and lousy durability.
That's exactly how I feel. Started with Wilson, used Tourna for the last year and I am currently have one of my racquets wrapped with Yonex and one with Wilson. They feel almost exactly the same.
yonex and wilson are they same wilson goes to yonex to get these made
Wilson Pro Overgrip for me. TG is horrible on durability and gets clammy if you sweat a lot. I used to have to change once every set! I prefer Wilson over yonnex because I don't need it to be as ultra tacky as super grap starts out to be. It has good feel and nothing beats that white color. I feel like I'm Federer hitting all the touch shots.
TG is not very durable, The reason pro's use it is because it does absorb okay and doesn't feel too bad when new. Pro's don't care if an overgrip doesn't last more than 3-5 sets as it all comes off every night anyway. I'm planning on trying the SuperGrap.
I've used them both many times. They are definately different. (Not enough for me to choose a favorite though.)
I've use a lot of Wilson Pro, and only a little of the Yonex Grap, but I'm hard-pressed to tell much difference, in white ... for that matter, the Wilson Pro in different formats - 3-pack, 10-reel - doesn't always stretch;/wrap quite the same
i've used wilson and it's ok but the big problem is that it's to thick, but tourna on the other hand is absorbent thin and smooth. i say go with tourna.
you guys are right. I have tried these grips and Tournagrip is my favorite BUT THE DURABILITY IS HORRIBLE. Any recommended replacements would be greatly appreciated in this thread.
supergrap is like all tacky grips and starts to slip badly after a little bit of sweat hits the grip. Its a decent grip in the winter but there are others that I like better, like Tourna tac. Have not found anything close to Tourna Grip in the summer, best by a longshot.
It depens on what you're looking for. I like them all.
Tourna gets the best absorption in my opinion and feels thinner.
SuperGrap lasts longer and had a good tack.
WilsonPro is in between the two, but more like SuperGrap.
They're all good, it depens on what u're looking for.
Tourna, I don't grip my racquet too hard and I get decent durability out of TG, maybe around 10 hours even.
I dislike tacky grip when they get dirty.
I think that a lot of people would disagree with your first sentence. For many including myself, Supergrap handles the sweat very well. Other tacky grips such as Supreme do not though.
Wilson Pro overgrip
Try Golden sent tacky grip, it has amazing durability, but a little think though
You realize that this thread is six years old, right?
