Wilson Pro Soft Overgrip?

Hi guys, I'm just curious to read up on any comments about this overgrip. I love Wilson Pro Overgrips moreso than any others, but I'm little for something with more moisture absorbency, with still the tackiness and feel of the Wilson Pro Overgrip. Does the Pro Soft fit this description?

I play on hardcourt, but I wouldn't want to wipe my hand on the court.... just need a decent overgrip for sweaty hands.

Dude I have very sweaty hands, well, sweat a lot when I play, and a lot of sweat from arms flows to hands, and I've tried a LOT of grips... before I used tournagrip, but felt it didnt last very long. Now Im hooked on Wilson Pro white, lasts longer and feels pretty good, I change it about evry 2 weeks. Im using a towel to dry my arms and hands (and grip) constantly during play, and also started using wrist bands, which helps to keep hands drier; try it, grips will last longer and feel dryer

this does not directly answer your question but hope it helps. i sweat alot and always have trouble with slippery racquets. i also use the wilson overgrip. BUT i try to change wristbands every turnover to absorb more sweat and play with two or three racquets (same spec) and change them on the changeovers to let the grips dry out. therefore i am never playing with a drenched grip.

Thx guys, but I just decided to order a 50 Wilson Pro Pack. I'm sure I can make it last if I wipe the sweat off on my shirt or wristband or something. I'll find a way to make it last. Thx again for the comments!

I was able to nab a few samples of this grip when I went down to SLO for an interview @ Lockheed. I think this grip is worse than H2O, which is one of my favorite grips of all time. Pro is pretty absorbant as is, and this soft version is thicker, and doesn't wrap as nicely. It is smoother, but not as absorbant as H2O. It doesn't maintain tack as well once wet, either. I think you're better off sticking with pro and a wrist band, or something similar.

I could not agree with you more. I have very large and thick hands that sweat a lot. The wilson pro overgrips with a towel are amazing.

I love Wilson Pro Soft Overgrip (obviously, see signature).

However it doesnt seem to be nearly as tacky as the normal kind os if tackiness is really important to you, then you may not like it. (and you will REALLY hate H2O grip then which I used to use)

My hands sweat more than any other human on the planet. I manage it a small bit with wristbands and a towel, but I rarely ever last two sets with the regular Wilson Pro Overgrip. It loses it's tackiness and is ruined by the end of the match especially on a hot august summer day. (again, that's my personal experience, not everyone elses)

Wilson Pro Soft Overgrip is probally a good replacement for the few of us that actually liked H2O grip (which is worlds different), however it's not even close to the normal Wilson Pro Grip, IMO it's a completely different grip.

It's slightly more tacky then H2O (which is not tacky at all) but not anything close to Wilson Pro.

It does do an awesome job of staying dry though and even when it does feel wet that seems to go away pretty quick. It also lasts me longer then any other grip that Ive used.

Also one point is that I like to keep my overgrip for as long as possible. If someone is used to changing it every 3 hours or so, then they probally should just go with the regular Wilson Pro grip.
