    Default Recommendations for more durable Overgrip (Singapore)

    I have been using Toalson and Yonex Super Grap. But both are not very durable as my palms tend to sweat quite alot during games. I think I have been changing overgrips once every 3-4 sessions.

    Can someone recommend a more durable (esp for sweaty hands) overgrip which is readily available in Singapore?

    well, is Wilson readily available there, because they are very good grips. i believe that the pro grip is very good, tack/feel, is similar imo.

    Gamma Supreme Overgrip? Not too sure if Queensway is selling those but you can order from overseas ----> http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/overgrips.html.

    The Yonex Supergrap cost only SGD 5-6+ inclusive of shipping. But of course, you must order in bulk.

    You can try using a wrist band to see if that helps in reducing the amount of sweat on your grip.

    Yeah a wrist badn should help preventing a lot of the sweat. I hear somewhere that your arm produces 30%-45% of the sweat which then gets to your grip. So by wearing a wrist band it is an effective way of lengthening the life of your grip .

    I don't know if it is avaible in Singapore , but Yonex 105 are better than 102 for sweaty hands ( there are lil' holes to absorb humidity)

    I find the Pro's Pro overgrips excellent, but I'm not sure of their availability in Singapore.

    You might find that, instead of searching for a more durable overgrip, it may be better to buy them in bulk - the cost savings would allow you to change them more often.

    Here's a link to a UK site which sells the Pro's Pro range (including super-absorbant and super-tacky versions). You may be able to find a local supplier:-

    Gamma supreme overgrips $8 for 3 good for sweaty hands. Karakal super PU $4 per pc also very good but too thick to classify as overgrip unless you want to increase grip size.
