Yonex Super Grap or Wilson pro overgrip

I tried both of them and seemed their the same. Lasted me over 2 months and it's still keeps going. Any stories from you about these overgrips?:confused:

Last summer I almost injured an elderly lady playing on the court adjacent from me when my racquet slipped out of my hand during a forehand. Wilson Pro overgrip doesn't do well when your hands are sweating heavily. I'm hoping Super Grap will do better in the summer.

That's sucks. D: I'm more a like a dry hand type of person. I sweat a little. I think the grap absorb sweat well
 
If I don't tell you which one is which, it'll be hard to distinguish one from another. But I think Yonex is slightly tackier than the Wilson.

Well neither grip works spectacularly well in hot and humid conditions, but I'd go Yonex over Wilson Pro, just for overall feel.

2 months?? Seems like I am lucky to get 2-3 matches. My hands are not particularly sweaty when I play, I just seem to wear through them on the bevels. And as much as I love SuperGrap, it gets slick when it wears down.

^ He said two months but did not say how many times this guy plays a month? maybe only once!
by the way, yonex is much better than wilson.

I change out Supergrap every 2 matches except in the summer where I'm more likely to change it every match.

I have only used Supergrap once and its pretty nice. I commonly play with Wilson pro overgrip and I agree it doesnt have the tack of the Yonex. Recently tried Volkl Supergrip II and its about identical to the supergrap. I live in Florida and with the temperature, i switch my grip after every match.

Supergrap is still playable after 2 months, it's just that it is nowhere as good as when it is new. Unlike other overgrips it doesn't peel easily.

I like playing with blue, doesn't feel good as the other ones new but it lasts longer, and it doesn't get dirty as much.

2 months? I bet you could conduct a nice biology lab by looking at that grip under a microscope?

I played for one hour with a Brand new black yonex supergrap on today and its started wearing away already.

I couldnt tell much difference between that and the Wilson Pro, so I think I will be going back to that. The Wilson just seems more durable.

I have a problem with it because they couldn't spell "grip" correctly.

Here...

If your hands sweat: use Tournagrip (the blue)
If they don't: use Wilson Pro (the white)

That about sums it up.

I prefer Yonex Super Grap, but the two are fairly close in my opinion. Super Grap is a little cheaper and I find it as durable, so I'm going to stick with it.

I respect them for changing the name.

Just got the new Wilson pro overgrip sensation. One person said this one absorb more sweat than the original. I'm little skeptical that it's way thinner. Have a leather grip underneath. So, hoping to try it tomorrow.

Guys, they are both listed at .6mm I believe....yet some are saying the Yonex is thicker? Can I get a clarification please?
 
i prefer super grap, wilson just isn't durable enough for me
+1 I get more play out of Supergrab as well as it feels very slightly thicker (I think it stretches less than Wilson Pro when applied) although they are listed the same. I give the edge to Supergrab

Well, you all convinced me it was worth trying the super grap. It'll be tough to see if it's better than my Gamma Supreme, but I am willing to try.

Those two grips along with the Wilson are close. The Supergrap just feels thicker and seems to have better tack. It's all personal preference of course.

I just ordered a 30 pack of Super Grap. I'm hoping it doesn't leave residue like the Supreme does. For some reason, I find that annoying.

Yep, that's what I was talking about.

I put my overgrip on with the sticky part at the top of the handle. This eliminates the need for taping the top of the grip to the racket. It does tend to peel away some of the base replacement grip if I'm not careful taking it off.

So how do you secure it when you reach the bottom?

On a side note, this whole time, I assumed it was SuperGrab....:|
What the heck is a grap?

I tried the Volkl, Yonex, Wilson, and Gamma and I prefer the Wilson mainly because my hands don't sweat that much and it just has a slightly softer feel than the Yonex. I like to use two overgrips to make the handle a bit more round.

The Gamma was too tacky for me and didn't like how it felt. but like some have mention, it's all preference and any of them would be good but if I had to spend money, it's the Wilson one I would pay for.

I don't start at the top. I start from the bottom and wrap it fairly tight which holds it in place.

If I understand your point correctly, I have the same frustration with TournaTac. I like the feel of it, but even after playing for only an hour and removing the overgrip to replace, it still leaves clumps and flakes all stuck to my base leather grip, which I then have to spend ages picking off so I dont get a lumpy feel when I re-grip.

I think I'm going back to Yonex Supergrap. Ive not noticed it leaving any flakes when removed and it does darker colour which Wilson don't seem to do. The Wilson Pro is good, but looks so grubby after about an hours play.

If Tourna could fix the flaking problem with TournaTac, I would never consider another overgrip.

I have never had SG flake on me. Sometimes it will leave a little color in the impressions of the grip and the starting adhesive will stick hard after a year's worth. I about tore up a grip trying to pry that off the other day.

Me neither, SG is good like that in terms of stability and from what I can recall, feels very similar to TournaTac, so I will stay with SG.

I used the black SuperGrap again yesterday and it just doesnt last. I only played 2 sets and it started to wear through where my thumb sits.

Maybe its not so durable with leather underneath? Maybe because its getting pushed onto a firmer surface than the standard softer synthetic grip that is affecting its durability? I don't know, I'm guessing.

my 2 cents, since this is a topic in which i have experience with both. (if its not obvious, everyone is different in how they perspire and how they play)

my vote as a light-sweater, i personally think wilson is much more durable. i think super grap is tackier, but i find it to lose its tackiness quicker than wilson.

my vote is for wilson. super grap although cheaper and tackier, and more comfortable, it starts fraying too quickly for me.
