    Physical Differences between Gamma Supreme and Gamma Pro?

    Anybody happen to know how I can tell the difference between the Gamma Supreme and the Gamma Pro?

    I bought the overgrip ~2yrs ago and threw away the packaging and forgot which one I bought. All I know is that it's white and uniform in texture (ie no imprints perforations etc).

    Going to buy some overgrip soon but wanna try something new. If I still can't find the Wilson Ultra Wrap, I'll be getting either the Gamma Supreme or Prince No Sweat! Sorta leaning towards the Gamma cuz I'm worried about slippage w/ the Prince since I have sweaty hands but don't want to end up having the same grip again if I'm already using it.

    Wilson Ultra Wrap length...

    I've found some of this (at last in UK), but I see it has the caveat "tennis length" - will this be enough for a badders racket, or will I have to splice two grips together?

    Many thanks!

    DEfinitely will be long enough, as tennis racket handles are longer than badders - might be able to do 2 badminton rackets in fact!

    has anyone tried to use Yonex's wave grap as first layer then overgrip it by the super grap?

    can someone tell me the feeling of it, becuz i was wondering will it still have wave's cushion feel.

    The feeling is almost gone. I do pull a little when I grip the over grip. so the ribs get pressed down and feel almost nothing.

    I will be doing a complete overhaul of my grip review and make it more "relative" and easier to compare.

    For example, my main focus will be on grip wet playability. "Relative to its peers" isn't quite ideal in this instance. I will just flat out state whether a grip is good or bad in the wet regardless of its peers.

    For the record, I don't feel there is one overgrip that is truly "excellent" in the wet. The only excellent grips in the wet (that I have tried) are a few replacements grips

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but opening a new topic for it was a bit silly I guess..

    I was wondering if anyone had some experience with the Carlton Stitched Grip? I'm looking for an alternative to the Yonex SuperGrap: I would prefer a more durable and a little thicker grip.

    Kind regards,
    Stijn

    Update: an updated grip review will be coming a day or so. I've focused on tackiness and wet ratings and am minimizing the "relative to its peers" method of rating to a "this is what I think it is and that's how I'm going to rate it, regardless..." method. This should make some ratings more "realistic" rather than scientific. :p

    Also adding a few new grips.
