    Hey everyone do any of you guys use any of these overgrips and what was your experience with them?

    And out of THESE TWO overgrips which one would give me the following?

    Tackyness
    Feel
    Comfort
    Moisture Absobtion
    Durability


    I would also like to include the gamma supreme overgrip

    Tackyness: Same

    Feel: Wilson.

    Comfort: Wilson

    Moisture Absobtion: No idea, my hand don't sweet when playing tennis.

    Durability: Yonex, not by much though.

    Gamma is much thicker and has a completely different feel, so can't really be compared. It is a lot more tacky and durable than both though.

    Yonex is better. Wilson spent too much money on overrated Fed to manufacture quality equipment.:lol:

    Yonex material is manufactured in Japan and cut in Indonesia. I believe Wilson is still entirely made in Indonesia.

    "Other Equipment" section should just be renamed to "Wilson Pro Overgrip vs. Yonex Super Grap" section.

    I prefer the yonex. I think it is the best grip out there.

    I just tested out the Mantis Overgrip and it's pretty close to the Wilson. Time will tell if it lasts longer which would make it the grip for me. Wilson to has the best feel while maintaining tack but only when it's new and the recent ones I have don't last as long as the ones in the past.

    Hard to find much difference between the white versions.

    Yonex is cheaper for me so I get that one.

    I agree that Wilson is close but the Yonex is just better. especially in durability for me.

    For some reason i feel that the wilson is a bit tackier. I used to use wilson pro then switched to Yonex super grap just for their orange color. When i went back to the wilson i would get blisters on my hands. *shrug* YMMV.

    I prefer yonex super grap.

    Yonex is tackier but too tacky for me. I prefer Wilson because it's the most comfortable for me and decent tack (a little bit more would be nice)

    Yonex. No blisters yet with these and I have gotten ton of blisters from the Wilson ones. They also last longer than the Wilsons.

    Yonex lasts longer than Wilson but Wilson has a slightly better feel and not as tacky. It was perfect until they messed it up by changing the formula probably to something cheaper sigh :(.

    whats a good tacky grip feel?
    also I thought Gamma's basketball grip was pretty unique.
    feedback is very helpful.

    does the yonex super grap come with the cut angle like the wilson pro overgrip so you can install it on your handle easier?

    Volkl V-Tac is better than both if you like thicker grips
