I fully endorse Pro Supex overgrips!

I haven't yet played with the overgrip in my racquet, but here are my first impressions upon holding and twirling:

When they said this was a thick overgrip, they meant it. The grip feels like 2 or 3 Wilson Pro overgrips stacked on top of each other, and there's a noticeable difference when I hold my racquet. Speaking of Wilson Pro, the Pro Supex is not nearly as tacky. Its tacky right out of the box, but the stickiness fades after a few hours (even if you don't touch the handle). Think of Wilson Pro, without the initial tack. In fact, I almost feel like I'm holding a synthetic replacement grip. The grip is very soft, but also slick and shiny (the light really bounces off). The overlapped ridges create a nice cushion. I assume that after a few hours of play, the grip will be soft like putty.

Anyway, I'll play some matches tomorrow and tell you guys the final verdict.

EDIT: And its only $18 for 24 overgrips. Its a steal.

I wanted to like these but couldn't. My hands just sweat too much for these. They didn't absorb the sweat and the grip would get too slippery for me to use. It had a nice cushioned feel to it though. Oh well, back to Wilson Pro.

The only downside is that the grip gets dirty fairly quick. After about 2 hours of playing, I already noticed a little dirt around the edges (bevels). It usually takes me a few days to dirty up the Wilson Pro...

one feels like 2-3 overgrips?
wdfux? I would have to go buy new rackets to then?
2-3 Overgrips is almost one grip size up

You heard me right. I spun the racquet in my palm a few times and left it in my bag for a few hours. Then the tack was gone. Deem the topic void if you like, but I'm not trying to fool you. I'm just speaking from experience.

I've been playing everyday with the grip since I got it, and its very soft. With Wilson Pro the callasus on my palm would be painful after a few hours of playing, but this was not the case with Pro Supex. I played for three hours today and my palm was in bliss. If you're looking for a tacky overgrip, this isn't for you. If you're looking for something comfortable to last you a long time, look no further.

i think to solve this problem flip the overgrip and use the other side ud get the same tackiness but with absorption since the other side is more absorbent
