I use Gamma Sport Overgrip.   One of those over the original racquet grip does me nicely!

My racquets still have the original leather grips. I use Tournagrip as an overgrip.

I used to use the blue Tournagrip religiously, but this year I tried a bunch of different ones and I'm glad I did. Right now my favorite is the Wilson Pro overgrip - lots of cool colors, too.  Also excellent are the Gamma Supreme and Prince Microtac (but not Duratac or Durazorb - not tacky enough for me).  At only about $4 for a 3-pack, get a couple different ones and see what you like.

The most important thing is to CHANGE THE OVERGRIP OFTEN.  A little dirt and sweat really reduce the feel.  I like white ones because it's easier to see when they are dirty.  Good luck!

Good points all and I agree fully!

Very true. Nothing worse than a soggy grip.

I am currently using babolat overgrips which I switched to from tournagrips.  I love them.  A lot.

i use wilson pro or yonex supergrap.  white is the best color for overgrips imo because the color treatment seems to take away some of the tackiness.

I actually just ordered some wilson pro's for the first time to see how they compare to the babolats i've been using.

I agree with everyone about white grips also!

I change it when it starts to look beat up.  usually once a month maybe if I am playing 2-3 times per week.  of course I break strings in that time frame too so I switch racquets.  Tough to tell.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I usually change my Tournagrip every other outing. By that time it's getting chewed up, and isn't as effective.

Ya I need to replace my grip.  I've had the original grip on my racket since I've got it.  So a little over 1 year now.  I was considering getting an overgrip, but my assistant coach was talking to me about buying wraps that are sticky, and just change it every time that I play.

That's what an overgrip is.

No I believe that they just slip over, and is like normal grip.  What I was talking about was something totally different.  What I was talking about was a wrap.

An overgrip is a wrap. Tournagrip is an overgrip, Wilson has a line of overgrips, as does Head etc.. You are talking about a one piece overgrip.  They all fall under the catagory of overgrips.
An overgrip is a grip that is thin and is wrapped or placed over the existing grip.

Thanks for clarifying this for us.

Our Tite-Grip lotion almost eliminates replacing grips due to sweaty hands.

Tite-Grip lotion is an antiperspirant lotion, when topically applied to the hands and rubbed in well, eliminates moisture in 30 seconds and prevents perspiration for up to 6 hours.

Tite-Grip lotion is now in 18 countries world wide and used by both amateurs and professionals.

Please visit my web site for more information and testimonials by professional tennis players and tennis writers:

Thank you for your time and hopefully we can supply you with a tube of Tite-Grip.

I personally use Tite-Grip when I play golf and one glove will last me the whole year in this Dallas humidity.

Best regards,
