Thread: Dinker Dan's Over Grip Review
03-26-2006, 10:00 PM #103
Could we get some reviews for more Yonex grips? including mesh, wave, and towel? They're like the main distributor near me and there's not much selection other than them.

for durability, pro >> proteam >>>>>> supergrap
i tried supergrap again recently as there are quite a few recommandations over the tennis forum, but supergrap is just as what dink mentioned
towel grip... is just towel grip i guess, its better than the roll i bought from victor though, but i don't know enough to comment on, nor i think there is any...
b/c of my sweaty hand, dry feeling grip w/ good absorbtion is better than a tacky but not absobing grip
ps. mileage might varies

In my 5-year quest for the best over grip, I have tried the standard towel grip, Yonex towel grips (way better), RSL over grips, Wilson rubber grips, Prince rubber grips, Yonex Ti rubber grips, Carlton ribbed grips, Victor ribbed grips, and other lesser known brands. Karakal PU Super Grip beats all of them hands down and is on every racket I own. And it's relatively cheaper too at approximately USD 2 only.

for now, i think wilson pro is really nice on its durability, and i spend less time taking sweat off the handle too(still more than pro team, but i might have to really replace them everyweek... rather than 2weeks for wilson pro)

I use it as an overgrip though judging from its thickness, some people might opt to use it as a replacement grip.
I have used Wilson Pro in the past and I find that Karakal still has the best sweat absorbing properties, for a rubber grip that is.

I've been using Gamma Supreme for a few months after seeing it recommended here. It's only S$8.50-9.00 for a pack of 3 (at Queensway). It is indeed an excellent grip. Unfortunately, not many colours available, so i stick with black.

Wilson X-Tra Tack in the U.K.
After reading this thread, I came across the troube that Wilson X-Tra Tack is not very easy to find if you're in the U.K.
For anybody else who has had this problem, here are a few links from which you can buy the grip in the U.K.
If you wanted to buy a large ammount of grips (36 in this case) you should use this site. http://www.tennisnuts.com/ishop/677/shopscr3652.html I have used this site and they are reasonabley good. The service is not as good as say, Centralsports, but I haven't had any problems with Tennisnuts.
If you just wanted to try out this grip. (as I did), the only place I could find it without paying silly prices is here. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/WILSON-X-TRA-T...QQcmdZViewItem
Hope this helps!

well, an interesting grip I've bought is a pro's pro grip. it was a 28-box for 10 euro's ($12,50) at www.powertennis.nl site is dutch, but you should be able to comprehend "grip" "overgrip". threw "producten"
the one I bought was the Dura tape...
It's really soemhtign neat to try...at 0,33 cents a grip it's weird stuff. it feels a bit leather-like, but tacky.
it absorbs a lot and doesn't get slippery, but just NO tack after a night's play.,
also: You just can't wrap it up the cone without foulding (sp?) lines in it. it's to rigid material..
bizar grip, can't decide wether to recommend or not
BTW: don't want to go ot, so here. please help...tennisnuts is really asking top dollar... http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...685#post400685
