Comment if your opinion of the Best OverGrip is not stated.

Pacific isn't listed either I'm afraid. Someone should do this with all the overgrips if possible.

You can only have 10 poll options, why not pick your favourite from the list?

No worries, I have, actually: Yonex Supergrap (which I prefer over Pacific, by the way).
That was more of a question - too bad we can't do a comprehensive poll. There should be quallies :)

I didn't expect Yonex to be in the lead at this point. I have used Yonex, Wilson and Dunlop before.

Tourna Grip because you can get it in huge rolls and it works. It beats getting 3 little strips of nothing only to try and make them last for months. I use this same concept for string and how if you play forsrs that you need to buy reels and change them often!

dunlop osmo-dry og.
grip is not too grippy (a little less than tourna tac), absorbancy is comparable to tourna grips, and durability is better than all the tourna's.
i heard the dunlop gecko tac og is even more grippy than the wilson pro's.

i'm still using up my tourna tacs. just because of poor durability i may switch to osmo-dry if i feel the same way when all my tourna tac's are done.

Best for what?

Everyone has they're own preferences and requirements for overgrips. Some people like a papery feel (Supergrap), others like a 'material' type (Tournagrip), others like something tacky (Xtremesoft), some people like the brand and don't mind replacing it every couple of weeks (Pro-Overgrip and VS).

Having tried them all, I currently use Xtremesoft because its sticky/tacky to start off with and durable. I like Tournagrip as well but it annoys me that its not pre-cut. Otherwise it would probably be my preferred overgrip. VS and Pro-Overgrip do a job but don't seem to last and disintegrate more quickly. Supergrap is okay but I absolutely don't like the dry, papery feel of it - my palms ain't that sweaty. The stickiest/tackiest overgrip is Gecko.

Average temps (70s/80s). Super Grap for tackiness and durability.

103 degrees with humidity in the sun, Tournagrip. Period.

For average temps, I prefer Gamma Supreme. It's more tacky than Supergrap.

For hottet temps...Supergrap is a little better cause it's a little more absorbant.

For hottest temps + humidity and lots of sweating....you can't beat Tournagrip, if you don't mind that "paper towel" feel.

I just bought some GeckoTac. I'm quite excited to see what Dunlop have so called 'developed'.

Torres,

I just tried VS not because of brand but because it's described as one of the thinnest available with a dry feel.

Yes, it probably won't last long, but we're talking little more than the cost of a soft drink in exchange for a week or two of a very dry surface that doesn't obscure the bevels or alter weight and grip size. Other OGs I've tried turn the grip into a baseball bat even when wrapped tight! :). Heck, VS is so thin I can even feel the flaws in how I wrapped the replacement grip! :shock:

+1

I wanted to try out VS because of its market longevity and the thinness. I really love the bevel definition, and the absorption is surprisingly pretty good. It has the perfect amount of tack for me, and it outshines Wilson Pro and Supergrap in terms of overall feel and it doesn't get slick, even those are excellent grips in their own right. I'm currently debating between VS and Pro OG Perforated, and I can confidently say it's not because of the brand.

tough question, it depends on what you mean, best in terms of thin but still tacky is babolat vs for me, but best in terms of comfort and tack is definitely yonex super grap.
