I've tried tons of different overgrips - tacky, ultimate absoption, feel etc etc - but they all become slippery very quickly. Yes I admit I have sweaty palms, but it almost seems as if I have to change overgrips mid-match. I've been using the Babolat Pro Team Tacky lately, which supposedly has "220% absorption", but even that doesn't stay tacky for a whole match. Anyone have any recommendations for a good overgrip that would fit the bill?

I am using the Babolat VS Original Overgrips. They are really thin and won't increase the grip size too much. They give a nice dry feel and are an excellent for me, but I don't have problems with sweaty palms, so it may be different for you. The bad thing about the Babolat VS Original Overgrip is that it wears off a little bit faster than other overgrips, but I guess it's normal as it is really thin.

I use the the Yonex Super Grap overgrip. From all the ones I tried previously this Yonex one was miles above all of them, for me.

Babolat VS Original are nice, as mentioned, due to their thinness, and they give a great feel, but I also like the Babol XL, though from the US I have to order them from England as I can't find them here. They are thicker but have perforations which I think help out a lot with absorption. Have had no problems with either grip in terms of slipperiness, and Florida is pretty humid.

If over grips aren't working, try using those Dry Grip Lotions...

Does anyone have any recommendations for Sweaty Hands. But a Soft grip.

Hmmm. Just tried Gamma Supreme - very, very good. Tacky, absorbent. Pretty good feel.

Tourna Tac is my favorite by far. I use the pink one. :lol:
