    Karakal PU Super Grip in black or white. The PU Super Grip is quite thick for an overgrip though so I sometimes just wrap it on the bare handle as a replacement grip.

    As far as pure overgrips go, I've tried Wilson Pro Overgrip, Pro Soft overgrip, and Klipper overgrips, and the Klipper ones are by far the best. Cheap AND long lasting. one of those lasts 3 or 4 times the amount of time the Wilson ones do, and they cost less.

    Replacement grips, the Karakal Super PU and the APACS PU are both amazing, karakal is better, but harder to get. with the PU replacement grips, i take of the original grip, wrap the handle in a layer of electrical tape, and i stretch-wrap on the replacement grip with a slight overlap to make a grooved feeling without it being too thick.

    i ordered karakal nano 60, peachy 6, and point 75 to try out as well.

    For me, currently using Yonex AC102EX white but the durability just an average. 2 weeks total of 4-5 session need to change new one. Expensive overgirp. S$10 for one pack 3 pcs.

    Now sourcing for Kimony overgrip as previously tried it and found it is great.

    I was a die-hard prince overgrip guy - duratrac and duraperf - but I recently got in someGAMMA and I'm likely to stay with it..
