I use the Wilson pro overgrip, are there any other overgrip that are really dry and my racket won’t slip from my hands
The super Grap gets kind of ruined after like 8 hours of playingI have found that Yonex Supergrap and Wilson Pro Sensation (25% thinner than normal Pro) can get a bit wet/clammy when it is hot and humid out. Volkl V-Dry is much superior in these conditions but is a bit thick for my liking and not tacky.
Good news is that most of the time I am playing in dry conditions so Supergrap gets the job done.
One of the most sustainable and best overgrips besides the pro overgrip is the Wilson Ultra Wrap Comfort overgrip, it’s honestly really good, better than the yonex SupergrapYes, it does. In my case it begins to tear. Little tears at like 3 hours that become problematic at 8 hours for sure. But, 8 hours (3-4 matches) for an overgrip is pretty good.
Will have to try it -- is it good at sweat absorption and is it as thick as Wilson Pro?One of the most sustainable and best overgrips besides the pro overgrip is the Wilson Ultra Wrap Comfort overgrip, it’s honestly really good, better than the yonex Supergrap
No, please don’t try supergrap, it feels good but rips in like 2 hours of play, use the babolat tennis grips, they are really good tooSame as OP. I don't know why people like tournagrip. That stuff is terrible. Ordered it used 2 of the rolls and threw the rest away.
I need something as I have to change out racquets because grip gets sweaty and slippery, welcome to 80+ degrees and 80% humdity. I'm good with 8hrs of play(about all I get on a poly anyway) so will have to try Supergrap a try.
Typically use gamma supreme but trying a lot of different ones now. It gets too slippery if hot out and not brand new wrap. Might just need to get that wilson lotion. I've never seen that.
Probably a stupid question but I've never used either. The only reason I've had a wristband is to wipe to my forehead or something.I feel like a pull-string doll.
Wear a wristband and buy a rosin bag. There’s nothing better. You’ll change your grips once a year afterward.
You wear the wristband. I prefer the Tourna Wrist Towel because it is large and I sweat. The wristband soaks up the sweat that runs down my arm before it get started to my hand.Probably a stupid question but I've never used either.

How do I use wristband and rosin bag?
Volkl V Dry.I tried super grap after rave reviews but I felt like I lost all sense of the bevels, way too cushioney and not as tacky as Wilson Pro.
Any suggestions for a thin, tacky grip that doesn't completely go to crap when I get sweaty?

I would say this is really user dependent. Most of my sweat comes from my hands, not my forearms. I don't notice a difference whether I use a wrist band or not. I actually only use one to help warm up my wrist joint.I'm telling you use a wrist band. This cut my sweat down by 95%. I thought wrist bands were for wiping myself down during a game. Nope keeping sweat from dripping into my hand most important thing. I can't play without one now.
How much overlap are you doing? I had to cut off a good bit when I was wrapping my RF97.I just tested out some of the Volkl V-Dry (neon green). They feel great, texture is a bit like Tourna. Both sides are tapered too, which is awesome convenient. However, they do have a fatal flaw, and it's that they're not long enough! The grip couldn't cover the entire handle of my standard length Yonex racquet. Looks like I'm back to Tourna XXL.
The most absolute minimum overlap, just enough to make sure the grip doesn't slide and shift apart. I do use a bigger grip size than most, so I guess that could be the reason? Anyway, back to the hunt.How much overlap are you doing? I had to cut off a good bit when I was wrapping my RF97.
