    Actually.. true. I do not know if it is just different batches. My red super grap actually feels thinner than the black or violet. funny.
    As for tackiness, the black are most tacky.

    I feel like black isn't tacky enough? I always use white super grap, black when worn out felt very slippery as well.

    Never tried the white ones....
    will try some other overgrips. Super grap is good, but maybe there are some other good alternatives

    Different colours of super graps have different softness/tackiness. If you want something soft and tacky, pick a light colour - like white or yellow. If you want something firm and durable, pick a dark colour.

    The lighter the colour = the more tacky.

    If you like soft and tacky, then try the Wilson Pro Overgrip. It's a little softer and a little tackier than the white Yonex Super Grap.

    The yellow one is much better than the white one.

    I disagree I like the white one much better & yellow looks the most gross when used too often

    Whatever floats your boat. But I think the tackiness of the yellow one lasts much longer and I like the looks more, too.

    Yonex Super Graps are not meant to absorb sweat. They have a smooth finish, and no holes. The lighter colours will remain tacky when "slightly" wet.

    If you have sweaty hands you could give towel grips a try.

    If you like Super Grap, but have a real problem with sweat - then try gauze grip. It's the best of both worlds. The sweat absorption of a towel grip, but with the grip and feel of an over-wrap. I've used Super Graps, towel grips and gauze extensively. And I can tell you from experience that gauze is the best grip for wet hands.

    "Best" is always subjective, as you've seen in this thread. You have to find out for yourself, what you like the most.

    Hi guys,

    Is that still true that the white Yonex Super Grap is the best and latest the longest while also the most tackiest?

    And can you also recommend the Yonex Towel Grip or not?

    I search for a grip which lasts the longest with the best feeling.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and tips.

    Light colors usually last longer. White, yellow, light purple, light blue, etc. I'd say the white stays tacky longest, but the other lighter colors come pretty close, so just choose the type of color you'd like.

    The one you should try to avoid is darker grips especially black grip, it starts to shred and become dusty noticeably quicker than the lighter grips

    yonex towel grip is thin and the best quality, but also the most expensive. Good, but only if you're willing to pay a lot

    Yonex super grap in general is probably the least durable overgrip in the badminton market, if not one of.

    Thank you. So the best is to choose durable colours like white or yellow? And the towel grip is also good. But you have to replace it quite often because it smells after a while I think, or? And it is also expensive.
