    Dan,

    How did you wrap your grips? 1/2 overlap? no overlap? how long are your top-5 grips (wilsons especially) how far could your wrap them?

    This Pro's Pro looks to be the same as the grip Eagnas sell. If so, sorry, I cannot recommend it, it's not a good grip.

    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

    I do approximately a 1/2 overlap. The key is to make sure there is no gap or overlap between the layers, so the overgrip is as smooth as possible. With this method, I have enough grip to get to the top of the cone.

    great, thanks.

    is the eagnas grip also so inflexible?

    Yes, from what I remember, you can't stretch it easily to your liking. Once the grip is wet, watch out, the racket will come flying out.

    wow, really? haven't had that problem yet...but I gripped it tight...so tight my fingers cramped up from holding it...

    god no...i hope it stays in...

    on a side note: I suspect teh grip from being just leather with some 'tacky' coating on it...that's how it feels...very weird..but not that bad...it also never feels wet...

    I'd skip the PP grip altogether. But if you have luck with it, more power to you.

    sounds like the grips on the really low end wilsons, like the wilson attacker, its like fake leather, REALLY hard and inflexible and no grip on it whatsoever. i only know this because i found one and started playing with it lol.

    i got the lime green ones. Wilson X Tra Tack > Wilson Pro + Gamma Supreme
    they dont get dirty easily but if you wash your hands very frequently and let NO ONE touch your grip then it stays pretty clean.

    whoops, didn't know you opening a shop lol, my bad. you wanna wash your hands as frequently as you can, for super cleaness, also helps with the durability of the tackyness. just make sure you dont leave your racquet outside of its case anywhere dust/dirt accumulates.

    well, my 'shop' doesn't really conscern you(nothign offensive )It's 95% Sotx. only overgrips are other-brands. ánd it's in Holland...everythign we offer isn't cheaper than anywhere near you if you add up the shipping cost continental...though generally, we are cheaper than ibuysports/racketsportsmontreal...DinkAlot is cheaper though...ánd closer to you
