What grip for dry hands

I'm very fortunate to be born with Dry palms that barely sweat at all. So I don't like the tacky feeling from the Wilson pro I been playing with because I get stuck on the wrong grip when changing to a 1hbh grip. What grip should I try?

Hmmm. If you don't like the tackiness of the Wilson Pro then you may not like other overgrips of similar tackiness/quality/durability such as the Head XtremeSoft or Yonex Super Grap. You may want to consider a less tacky but textured overgrip to avoid slippage with your dry hands but also prevent your getting stuck issue? I prefer tacky overgrips for my dry hands so hopefully somebody else can recommend a good textured overgrip for you.

Description sounds similar to my wife’s situation - dry hands, and she didn’t like the tacky feel of traditional overgrips. She switched over to Tournagrip (original) years ago. She now uses it year round. And since she barely sweats, she gets a fair bit of life out of it before it needs changing.

Thanks I will give it a try. Tacky ones don't last at all for me.

If you want something less tacky than the Wilson Pro, check out the Dunlop Gecko Tac. It's a tacky overgrip, but the tack feels different from the tack on something like the Wilson Pro. Instead of feeling like it sticks to your hand, it feels more like high traction/friction. That's the best way I can describe it.
