Thread: Dinker Dan's Over Grip Review
01-15-2011, 06:08 PM #528
I am looking for a non tacky, dry and overgrip for sweaty hands. I used to love Wilson H2Overgrip. They discontinued the product.
I have tried Yonex Dry Overgrip, it's not very good. Doesn't last long and not much comfort there. Also, tried Prince No Sweat Overgrip, this seem to be the best so far according to me. But Prince No Sweat is not great either. Any recommendation?

could you add the Karakal PU grip? (not the super PU grip btw)

Towel grips are also thick and should be used as a replacement grip itself. Using it as an overgrip on top of the original grip will of course lead you to think of the many cons people rant about all the time regarding the towel grip changing the racquet balance point too much.

Yonex Dry Grap (140) feels really nice. I haven't played with it yet but will probably soon. Nice spongey and soft material, like the 102 after it has absorbed my sweat but before it rips.
The Kimony one feels really nice and tacky, but I haven't seen how it'll hold up in a game. It absorbed my sweat nicely, but there's a stain where my sweat was. Also, the tape ripped while I was putting it on, very weak. I pull the tape very hard, and have always done so. This is the first time it has ripped on me. Yonex ones have always worked fine.
I have to wait until next week to get to try the Karakal.

any good brands for towel grip? or all of the towel are the same?
02-27-2011, 03:16 AM #533
The cheaper brands are slightly thick although the white and yellow coloured ones are relatively thinner and more comfortable (which explains why the Indonesian professional players swear by the yellow coloured local towel grips). The more expensive Yonex JP towel grips in comparison are a lot more durable and can last about as long as an overgrip due to a certain quick dry formulation in the material (same as what they use on the JP clothings) although it also costs about the same as the latter. It is also as thin as a double layered Yonex AC102(EX) overgrip compared to the local ones (yellow/white local towel grip = triple layered AC102).

Personally I play both singles and doubles and in both cases the towel grips I use last about the same amount of play time. I tend to sweat more when I play doubles due to the intensity, speed and concentration of play. For that I also use a wrist band on top of the towel grip to capture extra sweat dripping down from my forearm. For singles play I rarely use wrist bands and have less dripping sweat from the forearm.
The towel grip's durability depends a lot on the amount of sweat it absorbs, which I believe in your case is that you don't use wrist bands and have the sweat dripping onto your towel grip ruin it pretty quickly. Try a wrist band next time you play.

Try the Victor towel grip. It is much better than ashaway towel grip and you can get them from RKEP. Do some search and i believe you will find the answer you are looking for.

sadly i cant find rkep near my area...i think i will try to find victor towel...how much do they cost?

Well, the Kimony failed already; began ripping at the thumb after three hours of play.
Thus I went out and bought a couple of the Karakal grips. The replacement grip is VERY THICK, but it didn't show any signs of wear after one hour of playing. There was some softness developing on the grip where my thumb rested though. I'm starting to think that it's my grip that's the problem. The tackiness was not the greatest, and it felt slippery when I sweat (using wristband helps a bit). Next time, I'll be testing the Karakal Nano 60 grip, but my new grip is ridiculously thick now. I've never used something this thick, so maybe it'll solve my problems, or maybe not. It feels very good right now though.
Is ebay the only place I can get the RKEP grips? They look like they cost quite a bit... scratch that, $11 for 10? Wow, that's cheap. How long do they last?

Hi, im looking for super soft and less stick replacement grip.
The kind of grip the u need hold tightly... somewhat opposite to karakal super pu grip.
that means i have to look at the one that stated as poor/average on the benchmark right?
Pls give all advice and suggestion
Your time and consideration is highly appreciate.

all you need to do is put some powder on the karakal grip and it wont be as tacky. then after a few weeks the tacky-ness would drop and you'll have your perfect grip
alternatively, what i did is put a babolat overgrip over the replacement / original grip and i think you'll end up with something similiar to what you're looking for.
