Thread: Dinker Dan's Over Grip Review
06-15-2007, 03:42 AM #307
okay lets say my hand did slip when i tried to play this smash because the grip was kinda slippery (the shuttle went into the net).
so do i need a more tacky grip or a more sweat absorbing one ?

I'd say first determine what kind of feel you like, tacky or non-tacky, then go from there. I would say once broken in, Wilson X-Tra Tack is still the one to beat for ultra tacky and Prince No Sweat! for non-tacky.

Just recently tried a Toalson Neo Quick Overgrip. Mr Soh from Classic Sports, Singapore recommended them for my new rackets as the free grip. Its quite thin and I would say medium tacky.
As it is pretty thing, it doesn't give much cushioning, but I'm quite impressed with how the tackiness of the grip has lasted, even after approximately 20hours of heavy palm sweating in hot weather. Not too sure about general durability though, as the edges near the racket butt cap has started to wear out/tear, exposing the white fibres in the grip.
Still say its worth a look, and wish I had got more!

The Prince No Sweat! is very durable, a rating of Excellent or Excellent-. My double's partner has "sandpaper" hands and I let him test the durability of all the grips. The Prince No Sweat! passed with flying colors.
I'm also in the process of testing grips from Fischer, Dunlop and a few others, all promising...

After tried these 2 kind of overgrip,
Wilson x-tra tack
Sweat absorb: average
Overall: good –
Wilson pro overgrip
Durability: average –
Cushion: good –
Tackiness: good –
Sweat absorb: good –
Overall: good +
Still the best tackiness grip for me à karakal pu supergrip black (very sticky and very cushion, the weakness just too thick and not an overgrip)

use wilson xtra tack for the second time,
feel is increase and suit my palm very well compare to wilson pro, but xtra tack feel so slippery, not good at sweat absorb, no cushion... even it's thickness is medium but still feel rigid. so i wonder why this thing get 2nd tackiest overgrip by dinkalot. Almost no tacky at all for the sweaty palm.
finally back to my old wilson pro overgrip, even thinner but the feel is outstanding IMO.
Dink are you feel the same as mine? Or i should do more to "break in" this overgrip?

What color are you using? Color makes a difference. The XT I prefer is black. I tried gray and it's too thin and initially is extremely tacky but gets slippery quick. It doesn't even feel like it's the same grip.
Anyway, the black is my recommended XT and gray is an avoid. Red was good too.
