    Babolat Pro tour

    The best overgrip I've used is, by far, the Babolat Pro tour, and the worst are anything done by Wilson, I think they feel just like black electric tape.

    I have to put in my vote for gamma supreme white. Good tack and durability.

    LOL

    It's good that there's competition. It's also bad because you have to make a choice.

    I found leather grip with no overgrip feels so natural and has so much feel.

    Wilson pro-overgrip perforated type . Just switched from the standard pro overgrip and found this one much better

    Wilson Pro for winter.

    Must be an Australian thing but I use a brand which I am quite certain almost nobody has heard of :p

    Spinfire Supertac - tacky overgrip which for me lasts quite a while. 0.8mm thick which makes it quite durable.

    I stick to the white ones though - it just makes the racket look "classier" but it comes in some pretty funky colors haha

    Supreme White and Viper Dry White for comfort. Good tac, although it doesn't last long.

    Supreme Black and RZR React for great tac and comfort. React is slightly thinner than Supreme and over-stretches easily.

    I agree. But leather grips are expensive. How often do you replace them?

    When I was playing every day, a leather grip would last me a few months. That's still cheaper than overgrips.

    The original Wilson Pro overgrip from a few years back but sadly they made the current one less durable and not as good but still better than most of the other ones out there.

    Yonex would be a close second but I feel they also reduce the quality of this grip as well.

    What is up with manufacturers cutting corners and making their products lesser quality. I would have prefer they increase the price if it was really an issue with cost.

    The Yonex has a slight tendency to lift where the grip overlaps quite quickly whereas it never used to do that until much later.

    It also feels a little rougher.

    I just struggle to understand why the Yonex is held in such high regard. I do realize it's a matter of personal preference, though.

    Which grip do you prefer? I think Yonex is second to Wilson Pro if you looking for something that is thin and tacky but overly tacky like the Tourna or Gamma Supreme one.

    I just found a new favourite, Pro's Pro iTacky.

    Very similar to Wilson Pro, but for a fraction of the cost.

    Wilson pro>tourna grip
    The pro has good tackiness and good absorption, while tourna has poor tackiness and excellent absorption.

    Yeah I remember I used to use a tack cloth that basically puts the tack back on your grips. I think might have been called something bees wax lol.

    The bane of my life. I destroy cheap overgrips in 20mins of easy hitting. Expensive for a disposable item. Thinking of just about 4 of these on my favourite racquets: Wilson Cushion Aire Contour replacement grip over the original grip. I have large hands & can't stand single skinny grips.

    Man that's crazy. Even during the Summer with the crazy humidity I can still get at least a week or so of use out of my Yonex Super Graps. But typically if I use one racket for a nice 2 hour practice session or match, then it might be more like 4-5 days. Still though, I usually only go through a 30 pack of Yonex in about 7-8 months.

    What is most similar to the Tournagrip, but as cheap as possible?

    I used a white overgrip for a long weekend of coaching. Near new at start, now it's grey & drab. Always prefer black overgrips.

    I use goldenset adhesa grip. It's around 90 cent when purchased in a 60 pc bucket. IMO, it has more adhesive properties than super grap and last about the same time.

    I haven't found anything equal to Gamma Supreme Supersoft.
    If it's super hot and humid though, nothing beats Tourna, but
    most days I can get by with Gamma Supersoft plus rosin bags
    to keep it dry.

    Roofing Tar Paper, lasts forever, water proof, cushy, does not baby the hand. If it gets to slippery, just wrap a shingle around it. Just don't wipe your face during play......

    I like the Polyfibre Feel It overgrip.

    Very tacky and last long for a overgrip.

    Looks like we have a clear consensus here.

    I guess I am in the minority's where I do not like to use over grips. I just use the original grips and replace them with Prince Resi-Pro replacement grips when needed.
