Tourna overgrips are the best grips for sweaty hands. You might also want to bring a towel while you're playing to wipe off your hands. Or just wipe your hands onto your shirts/pants before gripping the racquet again.

I haven't bought myself a pair of V's, but I do have II's and they're pretty good. Just without the 6 month sole warranty. You might also want to buy an ankle brace is ankle rolling occurs a lot while...
6.1 for that much? Wow, it has to be a great deal, but I do suggest you ask the seller for pictures of possible cracks (if there is any). If there isn't, you should definitely buy it. I bought mines for $140~$150 a few months after it was released.
Well, I wouldn't really suggest wearing a racquet bag with backpack straps to school because they're pretty big. You're better off just buying a separate racquet bag for when you're not in school. Just bring your tennis racquet with some balls in your normal backpack that you bring to school.

I have never heard of a water-proof ball so I can't answer your question. Usually, when it starts to pour like crazy here, I stop playing because playing in the rain will just put more weight on your arm due to the water.
I played with this racquet awhile back when I had the chance to. It's exactly similar to my Fischer M Speed Pro No.1 racquet but with the 'No Tolerance' thing. You might want to try it out if you get the chance to. I find it a great racquet.
