    Default Grip Thickness

    Hi,
    I have huge hands, and I am split between Wilson Pro Grip and Yonex Supergrap, both the 30 rolls version. The most important question I have is which one is thicker, and by how much. Also, Is the format of Wilson Pro Grip the same as Yonex Supergrap? (the length, tapered and the adhesive at the end, not the label adhesive, but the one that is originally on the over grip at the end of the tapered section).

    You can't go wrong with either, they're about the same thickness, really close, but Yonex Supergrap stretches more, so it can be made thinner if stretching out while placing the grip to the handle. If not stretching, I personally can't see the difference. Yonex grip is a bit softer though and more tacky in the beginning, but loses durability faster than that of Wilson's. Hm but the final question... you've got to rephrase, I don't get your point.

    Like...the physical structure of the grip? Somethign along the lines of, is one wilson pro overgrip the same length as one yonex over grip, and is there the sticky residue that they give you to stick to your racket. I am asking this because I wrap my grip in a weird way, and I do not know if I will be able to wrap my grip the way I used to if the format of Wilson Pro Overgrip is different from Supergrap.

    I am not sure about Wilson, but I know Yonex Supergrap is 0.6mm.

    hey.. I own a 30 pack of Wilson Pro Overgrip. I can't find anywhere on the packaging what the thickness of the grip is but i'd say they are probably as thick as Supergrap.
    And yes they are like Yonex SuperGrap in the sense that they have a tapered end with an adhesive on the underside. As for length...i have no idea (about the same?). I have used supergrap for almost 10 years and have just switched to Wilson Pro and Prince Duratred overgrips. Tacky grips that are durable are my main criteria.

    hope this helps
