    I don;t think so, its just from the sweat, i don't think performance really changes much, but it looks so sick! In UK other colour pro overgrips is impossible.

    Thats why im looking for same feel as wilson pro overgrip, but different make (excluding yonex)

    White for my n6.1. Yellow for the 200g. Not that it matters much, though. My opponents rarely see past my colorfully loud Hawaiin print shorts.

    White because it goes well with my N6.1.

    Anyone use any other colors on the N6.1?

    It depends on which racket I'm using. With the n6.1, white or red looks good. With the Dunlop 300G, the orange Yonex Super Grap was sweet.

    my racquet looks good with white or black. white gets dirty quick and black leaves black marks on the origional grip underneath. anyways i get tourna, i dont have to worry about getting it dirty cuz it starts to rip first

    i like the white yonex overgrip or white wilson pro overgrip. the 30 pk fo either of them. i find that white goes really nice with my wilson ncode surge. personally i think tourna grip is the worst thing ever. no durability in it what so ever. wilson pro overgrip has to be the best i used

    I really prefer black ones - goes so nicely with my black PS 6.0-85 rackets...

    However, I currently use white overgrips since that also works quite nice.
    (Yonex SuperGrap)....

    Love orange grip and have been looking for a good one, and after going through a couple of companies I found the perfect one. Was doubtful about the Yonex Supergrap (orange) at first, but bought a 3 pack a week ago and just.. wow, absolutely incredible. I've been using this same grip (first one out of the package) since I got it, about 2-3 hours a day, and the grip just won't slip. It's slowly getting dirtier, but it doesnt seem to affect my grip on the racquet whatsoever. Starts out as pretty tacky, but still very comfortable, and a pretty, bright orange, and besides the slight dirtying, it doesn't seem like I'll ever need to change this overgrip again.

    Anyone have any horror stories about it that I should look out for? Would be disappointed if it suddenly rips in half on a groundstroke lol

    I love the white but I can't stand the dirty look ... so I use blue Tourna overgrip, although I'd love to try some nicer colors like light green, yellow and orange. Any suggestions?

    I like white the most, also when it gets too dirty you can always change it. With black ones you never see the dirty parts so you're always handling the dirty overgrip without knowing :p.

    I replace my grip everytime after a session (2-3 hrs). The white lets me know better when to replace as it is usually quite torn and dirty

    I like black, although the racquet itself does have a large impact on the grip color: the two might clash a little bit.

    I wonder why ppl complain about the color of the Wilson Pro Overgrip. I always change after 2-3 sessions (4-7 hours). I guess you guys don't change your overgrips regularly?
