Thread: Dry Hands!
05-02-2013, 12:34 AM #1
When I play, I never sweat on my hands! Then it just feels weird to hold my yonex overgrip on the racket. Can someone give me some advice or suggest me to a new type of grip? Thanks in advance!

in north America, where we don't sweat as much playing as in say Singapore or Malaysia, tacky grips work well... like rkep elite g09, or some other ones from toalson, prince etc for tennis

Yonex tacky grip may be worth a try.

if you have very dry hands like i do, then even the normal yonex supergrap is good enough. gamma supreme is very tacky but not painful. RKEP G09 that someone mentioned is extremely tacky and for people like us, you will probably change the grip once every couple months. of course it's not sanitary to wait that long, but i've never held something that maintain its tackiness for that long.
sometimes when i sweat i wipe it off with my fingers and fling it to the side of the court, sometimes i use my racket hand so that i have some moisture on my hand so that when i grip the handle, it gives it a bit more tackiness from the not-so-tacky grips like the yonex supergrap, or those from victor. on the other hand, i feel that with the RKEP G09 if your hand is sweaty, it's less tacky......maybe it's just me?

^ Yah, I've never experienced this before, but yesterday when I played for 3 hrs straight, my hand started getting damp with sweat and the handle almost slipped out of my hand a few times when I smashed hard.
My grip is white G09.

When my hands are too dry - what's only hardly the case - I take a bit sweat from my head and make my hand or the grip a bit wet. Mostly at the beginning of a game.
After a few points I have to blow in my hands to make them a bit dry
