    Default need suggestions for tacky grips and where to buy.

    i like to use tacky grips but the selection at my local store isnt much so i need some help to find some sites that offer real but cheap grips.
    and i dont really trust what the packaging says about the grip, so can any one point me towards some good tacky grips they've used??
    currently using black knight super grap.

    RKEP Ultimate is far and away the tackiest of the 10+ grips I've tried, and they're dirt cheap off ebay. You can pretty much turn your hand over and open it and the racket won't fall out. If you're after overgrips (rather than replacement grips), the RKEP Elite is a good bet.

    You could also try a Resinpad (search it - they aren't expensive either).

    I dunno about availability in Canada, but Karakal PU Supergrips are the most popular grips. I have used them for years and they keep their tackyness for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages!
    I have recently tried Ashaway PU Supergrips (freebies from a mate ) and they are actually quite impressive for tackyness, but I don't know how long it'll last as I was only given them 2 days ago

    I'm not sure unfortunately. I don't have any experience with those imported grips.
    Yonex super grap is quite good when placed over your old grip, it doesn't feel too tacky but it does give plenty of grip.

    have you tried Gamma Supreme Overgrip? it's very tacky.

    you should be able to buy them and have them shipped from most NA stores.
