    It looks really cushiony and comfy thanks

    PS: whats the difference between overgrip and regular grips? btw I have a N90 and my playing style is attacking/smashing. I consider myself intermediate but a bit clueless when it comes to grips..

    I checked that grip out and it doesn't look similar when it's gripped on a racket..

    Are you sure it's that one ?

    I'm gonna guess Wilson grip of some sort... the W looks like Wilson's logo, and I see an S and O.

    If you want cushiony and comfy, check out RKEP's King grip or super soft grip

    Yeah I'm pretty sure. The Karakal tape and the font style are clear indicators of PU Super. Plus it does come in white. It looks like it's wrapped over lapping about 40% of the width of the grip. I have a remaining strip of PU Supe grip on my keyboard wrist rest now as a reference haha..My left overs act as a wrist rest >_> <_<

    The super soft grip looks nice but it is that an overgrip? I already have like the regular grip that comes on rackets when you buy 'em.. I put another grip on it. Can I do that here as well with this one?

    ya that may be a bit thick as overgrip... for that, the soft75 may be better, still soft but not too thick, can still be used as overgrip

    I guess I'll try those.. I'm still looking for the one in the image. The letter on top looks like a "U" and it MAY be wilson..

    It's definitely Karakal PU Super, it also has the karakal finishing tape at the top (the same really crappy one they give). It's very spongy looking and feeling, and I have one on each of my rackets now so I know that's it.

    I can recommend you the Yonex Hi-Soft Grap.
    It's really soft and tacky. Looks similar to the picture on top.
    Just a tip

    I think you are right... I think the white colour ones are particularly more comfy feel... I tried my friend's white karakal PU Super, also felt very comfy but not on my own karakal blue colour. You should wrap it 40 - 50% overlapping for more comfy feel or 20% for thinner grip.

    If you're sure about it then I'll give it a shot. How do you like it on your racket? Thanks.

    The grip is very comfortable and soft to handle. I switched to this grip because I used to use the yonex supergrap which was far too tacky for my. My hands would burn after every session after using super grap and I had to switch to a softer grip.

    It's very good for the first few weeks but if you have very sweaty palms, the grip can lose its grip over about a month or month and a half of regular play. If you don't have VERY sweaty palms like me then you won't experience the same thing.

    It has a spongy feeling to it so actually you have a sort of a "ribbed" feeling though it's not nearly as ribbed as the Yonex wave grap. The grip is not flat like the yonex supergrap would be.
