Alternative to Pro Overgrip?
 
Pro overgrip is probably my favorite overgrip, but it simply does not last. Is there anything that feels as nice as pro over grip but has better longevity?

You can try yonex super grap. They almost identical as the Wilson . But it last a hut longer. I usually wipe the gri with a towel. I don't know why it works, but it works

Gamma Supreme is good and lasts longer.

I don't think the new gamma supreme is the same as it used to be. It seems thinner and more rubberized than before. I would agree with the durability and longevity though

I use Pro's Pro Super Tacky overgrips. I got a box of 60 for less than 25 (~$40). Little bit thinner than the Pro Overgrip, but have good feel and grip. Not too sure about whether they are more durable, as I replace them every time I play, but as they are less than half the price of the Pro Overgrip (at least they are in the UK), that kind of negates that issue.

Yonex Supergrap or Gamma Supreme

Seriously try Solinco Wonder Overgrip, I've never have had a white overgrip last so long.

I liked the wilson pro old formula. After they chamged it, i switched to volkl super grip 2 and cannot be happier.

Pro grip definitely has gone down in quality. I purchased 60 of them and they don't last as long as the older ones I got. I wonder if any of you have tried all the ones listed and can give us a definitive answer on which one is a better replacement for Pro grip.

Pacific X Tack Pro
Solinco Wondergrip
Volkl Supergrip 2
Yonex Supergrap

I liked Prince Microzorb. Probably not AS similar but its what i transitioned from after Pro OG and Xtremesoft. Microzorb is still very tacky after plenty of use unlike Pro OG that turns into paper after a couple hours of usage for me.

I have tried lots of overgrips. Much as I love Prince, I have found their grips to either be a bit papery or too thick and rubbery that theyre actually awkward to wrap.

The closest to Wilson Pro is Supergrap. But I would say the feel from SG varies with colour. White seems to be best colour and the most durable, second would be the pale blue.

Tourna Tac is different to WP. It seems a bit thicker and has a stickier type of tack to it, certainly not for everyone as other threads have covered. Although saying that it sucks I would think is good if someone is looking for good absorption qualities.

So it's a new formula, huh? I recently bought 12 pack and I thought it's a fake or something. More rubberized feel and quite a strong smell... it's good that I ordered Yonex 3+1 Supergraps next.

The Wilson Pro grip is definitely a new formula and not as good as the old one but since I bought a 50 pack, I am still going through them.

I noticed when you wrap around the handle, you can actually see it stretch and wrinkle more than the old ones. The tack is about the same but the quality definitely has gone down.
