Raonic now using tournagrip

I live 15 minutes from the tournament site. It's been extremely humid here this week (88% this morning!) in addition to daily highs of around 90*F. I imagine that the Tourna may be out of necessity. Difficult to keep the hands and grips dry in these conditions.

Meh...Tourna's overrated. Lasts about 20 min before disintegrating.

Wilson Pro is where its at.

Tourna Grip lasts me all of twenty minutes before it falls apart.

Everyone else seems to love it, so I must be missing something--can anyone care to elaborate?

Honest question...

Prolly those who are sponsored or don't mind the cost and frequency of changing grips finds it good.

Same as poly strings. Those start going after 20 minutes, but most don't seem to mind the durability penalty.

Tourna is hands down the best grip for wet hands. No comparison at all to Wilson Pro or supergrap, which I do like for cold weather. There's no magic, tourna is just easier to hold when your hands are sopping wet. If something better comes along, I'll switch.

i like it cause NJ summers are hot and humid as crap. like 85% humidity and 90 degrees on a normal day. My hands will slip off the racquet if i was using a pro overgrip or yonex supergrap. So I need that sandpaper grip

I think in humid conditions, Tourna grip is awesome. And if you're smart and can use your head, not unlike some idiot a few posts up, you can at the very minimum, get two applications out of each grip.

yes, us who live in the Mid- Atlantic region of the USA know that these Summers are brutal with the humidity and high 80s, low 90s weather most days

That's it.
I used to hate tournagrip... I always play with tacky grips, but after 2 days in DC I made the switch. Now quite happy with the tournagrips. You really don't have a choice in this swamp.

Admittedly durability isn't a TG strong point but they are cheaper than Wilson Pro Overgrips & LXN... Especially if bought in 30pks so you can afford to replace them more frequently.

If cost is a really worry - ask yourself how much you paid for that stick/string that could go smashing into the court... Or other player. Not hyperbole for my sweaty hands, w/out TG in humid conditions its not if but *when* the racket is going for a small unintentional flight.

Lucky you, they're more expensive here IIRC

DC court temp today measured at 146.5 F. I'd say I can't imagine, but I play about 11 miles north of there. Fortunately my hands don't sweat.

I sweat like crazy in Florida humidity but prefer Supergrap/WPro to Tourna and the Lux version. Go figure. I thought Supergrap would only work for me when it's cool out, but I get the same usage out of it even when it's crazy humid.

This was the missing piece of the puzzle. Milos will probably win the USO, AO18 and W18 now. I expect retirement announcements from the Big 4 in the coming week. Why bother? Other than RG, they have no more shots to win majors.

What is occurring?

Haven't paid too close attention but I believe that sleeve may be a thing of the past. Has he simply repurposed it?
