    Since there is a "What badminton shoe do you wear?" , I thought I'd make a similar thread on overgrips. So which overgrips do you guys use? Personally I use Wilson Pro Overgrip and Yonex Supergrap. I'm looking to try Gamma Supreme Overgrip. When I don't use overgrips, I replace the original grip with Karakal PU Super Grip. So tell me what you guys use :)

    Karakal Nano 75 , best overgrip ever made even better than my old favorite Nano 60 , only chose the 75 because it had a much superior moisture absorbency.

    Just tried the RKEP Nano Grip and that will be my goto grip from now on. It is simply perfect for me.

    I use Yonex Super Grap, simply because it suits my needs and I can flip it 3 times before tossing it :3

    I really enjoy using Gamma Supreme Overgrip! It's the one has a long sponge underneath the tacky surface. I have to say the sponge and the surface was not durable. I am currently using Karakal Air Point 75. But I am looking for a plastic overgrip that has a very solid and durable sponge. any recommendations? thanks in advance
