    Default Best grip for sweaty hands and overgrip makes difference

    Greetings friends
    I m new to this forum.
    Hi
    I bough my new racket and it comes with karakal grip. But my hands sweats quite alot sometimes it dripping wet.
    So I replaced the grip with another one with yonex grip. But the problem can't be solved, sometimes when my hand sweat alot I can't hold the racquet properly.
    I was thinking if I should use over grip to solve this problem. Any idea guys?
    Does overgrip really make a difference or should I replace the grip?
    and also any suggestion on which grip or over grip should I use to solve this problem.
    Thank you.

    Rkep G08. I'm very sweaty and haven't felt this slip yet. This stuff.soaking wet feels like fresh karakal pu super to me.

    Tried towel, hated it.

    Selfmade towel grip is IMO not as good as towel grip. I used to make my own in the past, but it was just average feeling and you could foolow my from the court to my home.

    I have really sweaty hands too, which is difficult especially when it comes to tournaments and you can't let your rackets rest exactly.

    I find that softer and thicker grips help with the sweat. For 2+ years, I used MBS-brand soft grip, and I still think it's really good. The grip's width (not thickness) makes the ridges far apart. If you prefer more ridges, I have also had good results with FZ Forza Replacement Grip. Pricewise, the FZ Forza is a little cheaper where I am.

    I have really sweaty hands and use towel grip too. Just Recently I discovered grip powder, which helps to keep the grip live longer and keep it dry. But the best recent discovery was a basic sweatband around the wrist. Most of the sweat doesn't come from my hands, but runs down my arm instead and the grip used to soak it all up. Since I have a sweatband around my wrist my grips don't get that wet any more and are more durable.
