Thread: Dinker Dan's Over Grip Review
07-11-2006, 11:50 AM #137
I found the Wilson to be good intially, but for a heavy sweater like myself, it didn't last long and got hard to hang onto. I also found the top layer would peel away after a coupel sessions.
Been using the Prince DuraTred the last year, but I can only get a few session out of it before it suddenly seems to saturate and get almost slimy.
I've got a bunch of the bobolat over grip coming. Sounds like it won't last long but will hold up with lots of moisture applied to it, which is key for me.

Wolf: do you wear a sweat band? If not, I highly recommend it. Prior to wearing a sweatband, no grip was tacky nor dry enough for me. Since wearing a sweatband, I'm OK. Bring a lot though, in one day, I can soak 5+ sweatbands, I usually switch to a new one every match.
Regarding the Babolat grips, they were OK but not good for me. You'll have to try the Wilson H2O or something similar for maximum sweat absorbancy. However, these absorbant grips are not very tacky.

I'd just like to add another voice of assent to Dinkalot's review.
I tried the Wilson X-tra tack purely on his recommendation, and it is by far the tackiest grip I've used.
Like any grip, it doesn't stay tacky for long -- but its lifetime can be increased by wearing a sweatband.
Good job, Dink

My biggest problem with sweatbands is that they tend to slide up onto my hand when I swing.
I have been cutting the tops of my old socks off (yes, AFTER they have been washed) and double looping them around my wrist. They seem to stay in place, but don't resist sweat very long.
I haven't seen or tried any of the Black Knight grips? Their old rainbow grips used to be very very good, but haven't seen them in a long time.

I'm currently using Head XtremeSoft Overgrips on my rackets, but think to change it to either Prince MicroTac or Wilson X-Tra Tack. Reason coz last Sunday, my racket was flying over after took a very ridiculous backhand.

well, i dont know much about 'tackyness', but basically i'm after a grip that's not too thick (max 1mm) that is rather 'cusioney', and with good durability. Which grip should i be looking at?

Thank you Sir Gollum. I've noticed, depending on the weather conditions (humidity, heat), Gamma Supreme can be as good or even superior to X-Tra Tack. The same can be said of Klip Cobra and Volkl Super Grip II.
I'm going to update the review page and add some additional grips.

Another way: I wear two sweat bands at once or buy those longer 6" ones. Also, once the sweatband(s) start getting soaked, I switch to new ones. The only problem with this is I can go through up to 10 sweatbands in one day.

I just purchased some more Wilson Pro Overgrip again, tried it and it's good but not for me. It has more of a Yonex Supergrap feel, it's drier. But for those who like a drier feeling grip, it's very good.

Is better than Wilson Pro Overgrip. (In term of durability - surface)
