Best Overgrip!!!

I was using Wilson Pro my whole life until recently decided to try the MSV Cyber Wet and it's turned out to be great and very suitable for sweaty hands. At first I was like "ok, it's not tacky at all", but when your hands get wet, it actually gets more tacky I think. The durability is also very good. After ten hours of play its still going strong, whereas Wilson Pro would become unplayable after this playtime for me.

I’ve been using wilson pro for years as many, but I regrip mine every 2-3 days to keep the grip fresh. I tried Babolat grips and didn’t like them as much, and I tried head grips and they didn’t get my attention and my preference as the pro overgrip. However I wish they made a baby blue overgrip of the wilson pro overgrip.

IMO the Wilson pro is the BBAlu of the overgrip. Best feeling.
I like the tourna grip too but completly different feeling than the Wilson pro. Great color too

i have been using the tourna Supertac tacky overgrip and Oddly enough, during this humid summer weather, it is feeling wet very quickly and i am in danger of racket coming out of my hand and breaking. This is Bad.

Is Tourna grip dry blue grip the ONLY grip that doesnt' get slippery during humid hot summer ????? I would use it but its just that it is like made of cloth kind of feel and it feels not good on my hand.

Do you like that stuff?? IMO the Tourna Dry Blue sux!! As per above Gamma Supreme is where it's at, best bang 4 buck $$$, as well as its longevity & durability which beats all others mentioned.

Agree, i hate the Feel of that Tourna dry blue grip. but in summer time, my hands are so sweaty, all the other overgrips get wet and my grip slips. but tourna blue grip seem to stay dry. How is the Gamma Supreme grip ? Does it stay Dry when your hands are drenched in sweat during hot summer outdoor conditions ??

The only thing that works for me is using a wristband. I‘m a very strong sweater - imagine nadal and then double the amount of sweat ;)
But that way I can use the overgrip I like, which is Tecnifibre Pro Contact (the black ones are better than white IMO) They are very tacky but they can get slippery when wet as well. I also like their durability.

I pretty much exclusively use Tournagrip XL. It hasn't let me down yet. My only issue is that I don't get much life out of them at all. So if there were something that were just like Tournagrip XL but lasted longer, I'd be all over it.

No, but I've tried GoldenSet which is also good bang 4 buck $, but NOT as good quality as Gamma Supreme. Recently moved to Florida which is extremely humid, my hands get sweatier than most, I have almost ALL brands of overgrips at home including reels of Wilson which is a lot more expensive, Babolat, Yonex, etc, yet robotically without thinking just always install Gamma Supreme. Even after around many hours of tennis over the course of several weeks (or even months in winter) Gamma Supreme on your racquet stays effective & strong. I sometimes use the premium Wilson grips in Winter.

Why do I keep repeating "Best Bang for Buck $$$"?? Coz you can buy huge containers of Gamma Supreme for really cheap, and rainbow colors. :cool: One container literally lasts for several seasons. "Supreme" is the key word here - make sure you buy that - don't get the other Gamma. And once you go with Gamma Supreme you'll never go back!!

I too live in florida and was on the gamma supreme hype train. Its the best grip. got here 3 summers ago. It played those 1st 2 just like it did in cali. But am using tournagrip now because no matter a month ago the gamma would get wet and stay wet. It was strange. Maybe I got a bad batch or something, but man I put on extra wrist bands and even wrapped my wrist under the wrist bands with some gamma supreme. Every point I had to wipe the grip off and that didn't really work either. So far things have been great with the tourna though its not as hot.

It could be the shirt. Its unlikely but the last two summers I was wearing hoodies. Long sleeved and heavy...even in the heat. 90+ and humid as can be and I was in the hoodie. This summer I lost some heat tolerence and am wearing long sleeve shirts instead.

@Shroud lives in FL and moved from CA - I did exactly the same - why didn't you say something?! lol

Just moved from West Los Angeles to Tampa in Dec 2019 and the tennis scene SUX!!

Think those hoodies can now be donated to charity - no longer necessary! :cool: What town are you in?

complete opposite part of the state. Pensacola. Played more tennis here than in cali so far. This summer has been a bit slow and I have been busy. Lights are out by design at the university so its tougher to play since night is not an option.

West LA to Tampa. I imagine thats a culture shock. Sure was from Oakland to Pensacola....

Tried a new one and loving it, its the Volkl Super Grip II. Only issue is I bought Neon Yellow and it bled into my racquet with a white grip! :)

O man, your winters are wayyyy colder... I've even experienced snow in Pensacola. I NOW rescind the remark on NOT keeping said hoodies! :cool:

Only as it applies to: a) many more southern rednecks in FL, and b) much livelier tennis scene in LA - could play every day if I wanted to WITHOUT joining a club - here in Tampa lucky to play once a week, and hardly met any players.

The Pacific one was my favorite. Just finished my last one. Don't think this is made anymore?
Not sure but by a hunch bought some of the worst cheap grips like dry cloth but with a tad
of honey rubbed on wet hands then onto the grip have something that I love.
Albeit the humidity in Asia is annoying for most of the year so far this works until winter
comes then back to Wilson again. Babolat, Yonex and others just cant beat Willy unfortunately
they last the longest no matter the conditions. Babo and Yonex last me one match at best.

Hmm wonder what kind as Pacific had several. Also my stock was a few years old.

X-tack from what I recall, but old no problems Honey is cheaper than maple syrup and better for your hands than processed sugar syrup

Gamma Supreme is great but no adhesive / tapered starting point is a bit annoying after about 100 units.
Sure its all about cutting down cost and offering quality but when you are sweaty in a hurry or just doing
some up the fact of having no adhesive tapered starting point is just wrong.

The Blue Gamma Supreme overgrip lasts me two sets max in humid Charleston SC. It works fine when it isn't humid, but it is awful in 85% - 95% humidity. I can use it in the spring or fall but not May - Sept. I bought a small box of it something like 12 - 3 packs.

Wilson Pro Overgrip lasts several outings for me, maybe 4-5 days, but it does comes in a 50 pack. Tecnfibre Pro Contact even outlast WPO. Lived in GA, So Cal, TX, and SC last 17 years. Wish I had found Tecnfibre Pro Contact early.

Tecnfibre Pro Contact lasts me the longest of any overgrip in hot humid conditions. If you play in humid conditions, highly recommend it. Thanks for the suggestion @Irvin

I've moved on to Volkl Super Grip II and the usual Wilson Pro.

Now if TW will start to carry the 30 pak of of TPC we'd dance a jig. (Hasn't happened at the time I post this.)

I'm a fan of this Volkl, as well. Similar to this is the Solinco Wonder, and both are what I'd call an "80% Gamma Supreme" but cheaper enough to count (much as we often look at strings.)

Long story short, there are lots of good overgrips these days. When I started learning the game, we had gauze wrap and Tourna grip (which I didn't like). That was it.

So I usually played in bare leather even in ATL heat. I can't see myself doing that now.

I know there is a lot of love here for the Gamma Supreme. So I tried it. And I just did not like it. The feel is closish to Tournagrip but it reminds me more of TournaTac. Alas, I'm back to my tried and true Tournagrip XL.

If you prefer TournaGrip, it's not too surprising you didn't like it. It's indeed closer to TournaTac. I'd say it's a slightly tackier version of Wilson Pro Overgrips or Yonex Super Grap.

I've just purchased some Artengo overgrips (the Decathlon house brand), and though I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them again, they are decent and cheap, and there's a Decathlon store very close to where I live. I got the Absorbent and Tacky models, but they didn't have the Comfort ones in stock.

The Tacky is pretty similar to Wilson Pro and Super Grap, but with perforations (I think Wilson has a perforated Pro Overgrip?). I prefer a smooth overgrip, but otherwise it's pretty good. If it were non-perforated, I'd put it as a decent contender in the best bang-per-buck category. Durability seems average, similar to Super Grap but quite a bit under Gamma Supreme.
The Absorbent grip is a bit strange, it has bevels on it to help with the overlap, and it does leave an "overlap-free" grip, but feeling wise, it's not that different to the Tacky one minus the holes. Maybe a bit spongier and stickier (wouldn't that make this the Tacky one?). I don't have sweaty hands, so I'm not qualified to say if it's actually "absorbent". I'm not a huge fan of it, but I'm going to use up the ones I have.

It seems that these overgrips only come in a pack of 3, so no tub discounts. That still makes them comparable/cheaper to other brands in tubs, but they're not quite worth it in my opinion.

Yeah, it seems that my wish for a more durable version of Tournagrip is likely to go unfulfilled. Heat, humidity, and sweat just cause me to wear through them too quickly.

I've tried Yonex Super Grap and didn't like it. Haven't seen dry grap but I'm not opposed to trying it. Same thing for the Volkl v dry.
Try them both for sure. I moved from Tourna to either. I use the Volkl because for some dumb reason yonex doesn’t sell the dry grap in bulk packages but I actually prefer it.

Wilson Pro, hands down.

Yonex Supergrap is great too but thicker than Wilson Pro.
My favorite two overgrips for sure, really the only two I'll use. Been using the Wilson Pro on my sticks the past few years, and really no complaints. As with all overgrips, you pretty much need to change them out after a few hours of use, less during super warm humid conditions.

I order Tecnfibre Pro Contact in 12 packs (to keep in my tennis bag) and have the 30 packs at home.

TPC has more tack than Wilson Pro Ovegrip and last me the longest of any tacky grip in 80+ humidity.. yep 95% humidity at 7 am and still 94%!at 8 am. 'On Aug 31st. Been like this since mid June.

Volk V Dry comes in 30 packs and they are tapered on both ends like Gamma. Folks who like dry grips should give them a try. I prefer them to Tourna and could play with them if TPC and WPO didn't exist.

Gamma Supreme can't handle 90% humidity for more than 2 sets. Completely trashed after 2 hours of play in the humidity of Charleston.

Yes, those dewpoints are insane.

I suspect if I were back playing in ATL I'd be looking at the V Dry or similar wraps, but for the sweating we do here in LA most peeps still can use the tacky versions.

you guys need to try out klipper overgrips....
Wilson Pro and Yonex Supergrap. I find the Yonex to be slightly more durable but they are more or less the same thing.

I also really like the Klipper Overgrip. It’s thicker than the Wilson Pro and Yonex Supergrap so I use it when I’m trying to increase the grip size a bit. The only thing about the Klipper is it after a few sessions it gets a little slick so I usually swap it out even though it visibly does not look that worn.
