    Don't mind about what is written on the package, I tried many overgrips and my favourite is Babolat VS original, it's designed for tennis but works well for badminton

    Yeah, it should be fine, just remember that your friend is probably in breach of his contract by giving you anything (OK so it's only an overgrip but I just thought I'd point the fact out).

    I have been looking for a replacement for the Wilson X-Tra tack. I have switched to the Wilson profile -- works quite well but I didn't like the ribs. How's the durability of the pro-soft?

    Thanks Deathsticks. Great -- I'll try that next. I do like the texture but was not sure about the durability because it feels so soft.

    I use a red Wilson X-Tra Tack overgrip on my SOTX W9a. It matches the color of my W9a (red).:)

    I bought one multi color pack (10 + 2) during last year RCS tennis warehouse sale.

    It works.

    Wilson Pro Soft overgrip (WRZ4733) is the best!

    Have never use overgrip before and been using replacement grips all these while. Tried Dunlop Hydratec overgrip but it is just no where near the Wilson's.

    I used my friend's racket once and after playing with it, I couldn't help but ask him what type of grip he was using. It was such a beau and felt so comfortable. It was a tennis grip, so I'm guessing your Wilsons should be fine too.
