two methods that works for me. i don't like towel grips. they are dirty and don't provide the amount of grip as i personally prefer.
for the hot summer sweaty days, i use two methods to keep sweat out of the grip:
1. towel type wrist band - most effective for me. i find that more than 1/2 the seat flows down the arm to the hand grip. this cuts out a lot of them. the wrist band is removable and washable unlike towel grip
2. have multiple rackets - use the same model/string/tension/stringer so they will feel the same. rotate them as often as possible so the string/tension wear at the same rate too.

wrist band does not work for everyone.
For me for example, i dont sweat that much overall, but i sweat a lot in cetain areas of the body (hands + feet).
Therefore, wrist band would not ameliorate my problem.
For me, nothing works the best really...
except, using a tacky, sweat absorbant grip, and switching rackets...
besides this, nothing else helps.

Haha, I been using Wilson Tennis wrist band which is about 3 inches wide and it helps to reduce the sweats from my arm to my hand. Furthermore, the dishwashing liquid helps to keep my arms from sweating. Lastly, I started to drink Oolong tea which it seems to help reduce the sweat too... Weird... my body is weird....

Oolong tea is one of the body coolant drinks. It naturally lowers your body temperature and the heat produced from your liver and thus makes you feel cooler and have less tendency to sweat. This I would really recommend to every "hot blooded" person. Iced lemon tea works well in reducing sweat too.

petertan_sg, no harm giving Head super comp overgrip (white) a try. It still feels very tacky and dry even after 8 hours' use.

I too tend to get really sweaty hands while playing, however I cannot stand the feel of a towel grip, and as noted they do tend to get very smelly and hard.
For me, after trialling quite a selection of grips I have finally found the perfect grip. The Wilson Micro-Dry Indoor Grip is fantastically grippy to my moist hands, and additionally, is really comfortable. It also contains 'Rayon' although I don't have a clue what this is, or what it does! lol. Additionally, the grip is (in my local shop) only £4.49 (British Pound Stirling), which is quite reasonable when compared to some of the Karakel Grips I have tried. It is also really long lasting and pretty hard wearing. It, to me, is the best on the market.
Hope this helps, if you have any question please do ask :-)

instead of towel grips just bring several hand towels, put one in your pocket (wristband optional) for between points and use a larger towel for between sets/11th point break
