    What is better, Wilson Pro Overgrip or Yonex Supergrap or Technifibre Player's wrap? I have tried Yonex Supergrap (black) in the past and it really had little tack and seemed to get slippery. I just tried it in white and it seemed to perform a whole lot better. Good tack and my sweat did not effect it very much.

    I like Tournagrip a lot but I hate having to change it so often.

    Yonex was the first company to put out the white polyurethane overgrips on tour, then others followed suit. The Yonex is tackier than the Wilson, however Wilson is more readily available in the US market than Yonex. Both comparatively hold dirt the same. I have not tried Technifibre.

    I liked the Yonex better. It lasted much longer and held a lot more sweat. Of course, I don't like that much tack, so I may be biased towards the Yonex.

    I still think the wilson pro is the perfect grip. It starts off nice and tacky, then loses its tackiness and turns into quite an absorbent grip. Even with this change, it won't slip out of your hand, it'l just feel perfect.

    Yonex; the lighter colors the better for tackiness.

    i think wilson was tackier right off the bat, but yonex maintains the tackiness longer. and yeah, the lighter the color of the yonex the tackier for some reason.

    I've only tried Tornagrip before, and I find Technifibre Players Wrap to be far better... plus they last AGES compaired, and their tachiness only slowly goes, and does go after 1 match.

    I'd say the Yonex but the Wilson's are more affordable if you buy them in the multi packs.

    yonex white grap blows away the comp. it is sticky for very long time , but that will off eventually then you have grip that will "wick" sweat no problem Then you can flip it over if you desire & get same out of that side. my right hand is calloused big time & it doesn't abraid the grip like the others. it is also a buck cheaper than the comp. upshot get white.

    My vote also goes to the Yonex grip; mostly due to superior durability.

    Yonex or Wilson, I think between those two is really up to each individual, but those two are definitely the top.

    whenever one side gets dirty and less tacky (on the pro overgrip) do you guys flip the side? well thats what i do, and it still works really well

    Wilson Cushion-Aire Super Tack Overgrip is the tackiest overgrip I've found...BUT...I have the opposite problem, my hands never sweat. I'd say give it a try though because I usually take a wet towel to the court to dampen the overgrip to make it even stickier.

    I've been a Wilson fan, but I've recently started testing the Yonex's and they're fantastic (I used white). The Wilson goes brown before the Yonex, and it seems to slip a little, but its still a fantastic grip. The Yonex's are just totally awesome though.

    After playing 4-5 sets a really sweating up a storm, I have found that they all make me feel like there is a small loss of grip when they are oversaturated. I am going back to Tournagrip.

    Bummer, I was really excited about the possibility of using some other type of grip. To tell you the truth, the best overgrip, other than Tournagrip was a tie between the Yonex supergrap (white) and Dunlop Hydromax (grey). The Dunlop really has the shammy feel nailed perfectly and the durability is way better than all the others combined.

    I've flipped the grip over before and it didn't really have the same texture and I didn't like it that much. Plus, I thought it would have started to grow mold or become really stenchy after a while. :D

    Yonex supergrap is best IMO, Wilson grips suck ass.
