I am currently using Tournagrip, but I know I've used grip tape that I've liked better but can't remember what they were.  What do you use and how much does it cost?  Tournagrip is about $5 for 3 wraps in columbus, Ohio.

I used to use the Tournagrip religiously until college.  Now I like the Prince Duratred.  But after two racquets slipping out of my hand on the serve in 3 weeks and breaking both racquets it makes you wonder.  I think my grip size is too small.

The Tournagrip never lasted me that long which is why I made the switch.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I know...I'm not really sold on Tournagrip either, even new.

Samoras used it, I think.  But when you have some guy string 9 racquets a day used the day before or not, I am sure he gets new grips with those too if they had been used.  For us poor folk, well...
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Due to a series of unfortunate events involving ATS Sports and Tournagrip... and letting Tournagrip, their parent company anyways, know about it... eventually resulted in me getting enough free Tournagrip to last me a year or two.  hahaha.  

But I love Tournagrip.  I can't say I've tried them all, but I have absolutely no complaints about TG.

I use the Prince Micro-Zorb. I like how tacky they are and the feel is like absolutely insane. I love it. Only thing is -- the white ones turn gross colors so quickly that it gets embarrasing ot use really quickly.

Also, one time when I was at a tournament in the middle of nowhere, we had to find overgrips quick before my next match and I found some in the Wal-Mart there. They were Wilson and the box said they could be used for Golf or Tennis. Never the less, those were some of the best overgrips I've ever used. They stayed tacky like forever and I absolutely loved em.....havne't been able to find them in any of the wal-marts of sports stores since i got back home...:(

I'm an avid tournagrip user. I see a lot of people are using this white wilson grip now, like the one Fed uses. Has anyone tried that one out? Right now theres no better feeling than a freshly tournagripped racquet!

Yeah, I remember when you first got yours and I had to have one  :)~  what can I say....

And do you remember that when we had to go to that wal-mart by the hotel to get me some overgrips? And then we all walked back to the hotel before we went to get Subway? It was the State Open --

Yeah, those black overgrips were the best. I gotta find some more like those

Maybe it was the Wilson Rubber somthing you were talking about?

Anyway I use both Prince Microzorb and Head Pro Agassi Grip (basically TG but longer - like the XL version).  I like the Head in every aspect except that it was too grippy in the begining and gave me blisters.  Yonex Supergraps are good apparently.
