    Did white overgrip get dirty quickly? I want to use it, but I'm afraid it turns dirty easily.

    all get dirty quickly, it's just more easily visible on white. if you're referring to wilson pro overgrip, it's a great one. even thou it looks "dirty", it's still plays nice.

    Yea, they tend to discolor, but you can clean them with mild soap. They're so cheap, it's no problem to put on a new one. Some people reverse them for a new surface. I like the Yonex Super Grap overgrips.

    You can't go wrong with either the Wilson or Yonex grips. Decent tack, but not too much to where you can't change grips easily, they absorb sweat good and they aren't all that expensive. You should definitely think about getting the 10 or 30 pack, especially if you live overseas.

    Wilson Pro Overgrip=Best on the Market

    It make look dirty, but still maintains the tackiness for awhile....plus if you buy in bulk, its less than a $1 for use....so basically $1 a week or 2 for excellent comfort[/i]

    Is the Wilson Pro Overgrip like the Yonex Supergrap? I have a racket I bought with the Yonex Supergrap and want to try the Wilson because I could get the 10-grip reel from here... If they are very similar, let me know. Thanks a lot.

    similar, but the wilson pro is a little softer texture, slightly more cush, and less tacky than the supergrap. (imo)

    I use the Tecnifibre Players wrap in white. Always wondered what the Wilson one was like.Anyone compared the 2? Ive also got some Pacific white grips samples too. They're similar to the Tecnifibre, but poss a bit tackier
