    What’s your favorite replacement grip? Or does it matter if you use an overgrip?

    Try oehms as I like retro version because it has no logo like TW leather grip. oehms is the original maker of heads finest calfskin.

    This is a case of 'quantity over quality'. I'd rather replace it with cheap grips often, than use an expensive leather grip for too long.

    Get a bunch of overgrips when they're on sale, and then replace it every time you go out to hit.

    Yonex AC128EX Synthetic Leather Excel Pro.

    It's not as firm as leather, but it still has excellent bevel definition. When wrapped correctly, it leaves a small valley at the overlap. The distance between valleys is the perfect width to overlap an overgrip such that it lays perfectly flat.

    So if you are a fan of no raised overlap, give it a go! I use Tourna XL, and Tourna Mega Tac XL and both are perfect fits. Here is some pics of the Mega Tac I just put on. My first time with the black Mega Tac which is more of a graphite grey colour.

    babolat skin feel. it is thinner than most. it is also firm and is the closes synthetic to leather. I always use an overgrip and the skin feel grip last forever for me. I've used 1 skin feel grip on each of my 2 rackets for over a year and still looks and feels like new.

    Gamma Hi-tech. Firm, durable and doesn't compress much over time like most synthetics. Good choice for a player that likes leather but needs a little bit of vibration dampening.
