    You can't really go wrong with the PU Super grip, unless you have tiny hands *because it is a little thick.

    For me, PU Super grip, either replacement or overgrip, is the best thing since sliced bread ;)

    I'm veering towards the PU Super Grip. Should I remove the standard Yonex grip or just slap it on over it?

    The Kushy Grip is nice too, I used to use it on my tennis rackets.

    I've used the Peachy for a while now. If you like a "suedey" feel, it's excellent. VERY thin, you can slap it around your current grip without turning it into a drainpipe.

    The PU is nice and tacky IMO, but too thick and spongy for my tastes.

    If you want to use the PU, I would take off the factory grip, because it really is quite thick. I just love it though. Its the only grip I've ever used that stays tacky for over a week (I sweat waterfalls), and it just feels so comfortable and cushiony.

    pu super grips are decent.i have tried the nano 180 air grip and found myself VERY disappointed.it isnt absorbent enough.the racket actually flew out of my hand.only after 15 mins. pu super grips are also not absorbent enough for me but as long as i wipe the grip with a towel then its ok. i do wear a wrist band so it does help with the sweat. i still use pu super grip nw because for the money,i thnk its one of the best. xcept i have to change it every month

    i love karakal grip. My fav is the Pu Super Duo but can't seem to get it now. I've used the Contact replacement grip and it is thick and durable.

    I've bought one Nano 180 replacement grip. Initial impression is that it is quite thin but not very "cushy". I still like the feel and thickness of the PU super duo. Pity I can't find it anymore.

    I tried the Pu Super Grip Duo on my pair of Apacs last night. The rackets almost flew out of my hand. Its not suitable for my sweaty palm. Towel grips still work best for me.
