    I'm a huge fan of Tourna Grip! The new commercial is showing on the Tennis Channel during the Aussie Open.

    Click the link on Youtube to see the commercial:

    They've found a nice spot between giving their honest opinion/telling the truth, and towing the company line. So it's not bad.

    This advert was probably filmed a while back, as the bryans signed with k Swiss didn't they? Would that be construed as breach of contract if it's being shown now?

    Respect the Bros. They are cool dudes. You don't see them wiping their hands on their shorts due to slippery white grip. Kick ass Mike and Bob.

    Would be a nice touch to see them play with sunglasses in their next match! Guess if you are #1 in the world....you can do pretty much anything you want and the rest will follow! Go Bryans!!!

    Only if they had a terrible lawyer negotiating their deal. Typically, prior existing imaging would not be subject to current contractual restrictions for endorsements. Besides, I suspect that the images in the TournaGrip commerical are owned by Unique Sports Products, not the Bryans (it would be typical for the Bryans to assign rights to those images for the purpose used) and Unique could not possibly breach the Bryans' contract with K-Swiss. I am also pretty sure that K-Swiss knew about pre-existing images and other endorsement deals when they signed the Bryans.

    Oh, and I liked the commerical.

    Oh, right. 
    commercial was pretty good, but what's different about the tournagrip now then? Is it just a new advert or have they changed something about the grip

    don't think I've seen them playing matches with sunnies, but they often do during practice sessions...

    Either they are sponsored (i.e. paid) by Oakley or they get their Oakley sunnies and watches for free...

    Pretty solid commerical. And yes, I think they are sponsored by Oakley.

    Tournagrip only slips when you have super sweat hands and you do something stupid like try to smash a ball that's below your arm and sling the racquet into the ground, but if you've got hand sweat a Wilson Pro or Supergrap is going to be ever worse. The combination of momentum + gravity means you will let go of the racquet... But you won't if you do a good smash because gravity isn't affecting your grip too. I broke a really nice Head Radical Tour OS Twintube that way.

    It's still the most absorbent overgrip, bar none. Consider yourself lucky if your hands are dry enough to use Wilson Pro...

    I saw this commercial then as I was watching tennis that evening I really notcied all the players using white grips that have to constantly wipe and blow on their hands before each point. You don't have to do that nearly as much with tourna grip. No wonder Tourna is so widely used on tour... and yes... great commercial!

    not if u change it when it's worn out..and by worn out i dont mean the outer layer tearing b/c of moisture, i mean when it's a GOOD time to change, after it's absorbed quite a bit but not yet falling apart.

    As long as you change it at appropriate times, it does the job, for sure. Stop being so cheap everyone! we have sweaty hands, we can't afford to be cheap!

    i agree that just because you see a tear, doesn't mean its time to change. If you look at the pro's, sometimes they a playing with it while its fraying...
