    Wilson Pro Overgrips can be found in canada. Bought my 30 pack at Tad's in Vancouver (that was about 10 months ago?). I've seen them sold as 3 packs elsewhere (maybe sports chek?).

    I bought my Wilson Xtra Tack (12 pack) when I went into Sports Experts in downtown Montreal when i was on vacation for the weekend. Tad's also carries the 12 pack of Wilson Xtra Tac.

    Here in toronto i have not yet encountered any of the above wilson grips for the following reasons:
    1) i don't own a car
    2) I stock pile on grips and stuff whenever i go back to visit family in vancouver.

    Any ways, I travel between vancouver and toronto about 3 times a year, that's why i am able to have plenty of grip.

    Fyi: when i bought the 30 pack of Wilson Pro Overgrip it was $65.
    Wilson Xtra Tack was $25. All in canadian dollars and does not include tax
