Dinker Dan's Over Grip Review
Note: some grips are a review in-process. Any rating left blank means I have not completed that evaluation yet. I will update this table periodically and the ratings can and may change.
How I review: from a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being highest, 5 being average. Since just about everyone has used the standard Yonex SuperGrap, I used that as my benchmark grip.

u gave prince duratrend a 1 for grip durability.
isnt this too low?
the initial,5 min and wet grip ratings is pretty good under tackiness.

nice test, but i'm very surprised to see the karakal grips left out, which are reportedly the best in the world.
Also it might be fun to include some towel grips?

I am also curious that Wilson Pro overgrip isn't listed.

Why is XXX grip not inside?
If he were to wait until he tried out every different grip in existence before publishing the review, we would probably have to wait a long time for this review to come out
Having said that... how about trying Prince Microzorb (Duratec is not available in Asia). Pacific grips are quite common in Asia as well.

Sorry for the silly question, but is the name "Wilson Xtra X-Tac" correct? I can't seem to find it anywhere. I found a "Wilson X-Tra Tack." Is that one and the same?

OK, all updated.

Great table . Thanks for the hard work put in it.
I hope you can put your hands on some Kimony and Gosen grips which truly are good. I was very disapointed by all my Wilson grip experiments as well as Gamma. I can't recall the models unfortunately but next time I grab some I will be more cautious on the specific models.

Wonder what's your range for "medium" or "thin" in the "thickness" category? Mind to provide some numbers? Personally, I find Yonex Supergrap is pretty "thin", as it's only 0.6mm.

Do you mean prince "duratred" instead of "duratrend"??
By the way...big thanks for putting up this table. I'm going to look into trying some of the other overgrips thanks to your recommendations.
