Thread: Extra-long overgrip?
07-25-2011, 10:51 AM #1
I’m looking for an extra-long overgrip similar to my current personal favourite, the 'Wilson Pro Overgrip' (below). I like to wrap my rackets above the cone with around a 40-50% overlap. The Wilson is perfect as it is narrow and extra-long at 1200mm but is very expensive at around £5.99 ($9.75) for a pack of three.

Although I prefer a tacky feel, the overall length of the grip is probably the most important aspect. Any suggestions?

Still no reply eh? Your basic Yonex Super Grap AC102EX is 1200mm as well and comes in an "economical" 30-pack ...

and of course is (still) available for as little as £1 each

why do you favor length over feel?
i bought a pack of the Wilson Pro for pretty cheap at a sale. i think they are $3 for a 3pack.
now i need to figure out whether i will use them as undergrip or just use it to wipe the floor. they are that bad.

Just short indeed. But even just short is too short still ... for the purpose above anyway (which is how I do them as well).

If this can help, Babolat make a Tennis overgrip that is called BaboXL, which is supposed to be extra long. But the length isn't mentionned on their website. So you could try to email them about that.

I buy from the States and can usually find it online for ~$1 per grip.
I brief look at amazon.co.uk and the cheapest was 30quid for 30 wilson pro overgrips.
wilson pro and yonex supergrap are very similar and both are exactly the same length. I usually alternate between the two depending on whichever one is on sale.
