The Best Tennis Overgrips
In this section, we’ll dive into our pick for the best overall tennis overgrip. We’ll also cover our top picks in each of the following categories:
- Sweat absorption
Best Overall: Wilson Pro Overgrip
The Wilson Pro is the preferred overgrip of players like Roger Federer and the Williams sisters and one of the most popular overgrips on the market.
We give it our pick for the best overall because, in our opinion, it provides the best balance between sweat absorption and tackiness without falling too far to either side of the spectrum.
Plus, at 0.6 mm thick, it won’t drastically change the feel of your racquet. All in all, it’s well-rounded and our favorite grip on the market.
Sweat Absorption: Tourna Grip
If you’re looking for the ultimate overgrip for sweaty hands, then look no further than the original Tourna Grip, which is another we love and runner up for best overall.
Beyond the legions of players that use it, what makes Tourna Grip unique is that it gets tackier as your hand’s sweat. For years it’s been a top pick, and whether you prefer it over Wilson Pro or not is a personal preference that you’ll have to discover for yourself.
If you’re using an extended length racquet that features a longer handle, be sure to grab the Tourna Grip XL for the fit.
If you’re looking for an alternative, then be sure to check out Luxilon’s Elite Dry overgrip that features a different makeup but functions the same way as Tourna Grip in that it gets tackier as you sweat.
Thinnest: Tecnifibre Pro Dry Overgrip
If you’re looking for an extremely thin overgrip, the Tecnifibre Pro DRY is a great option to check out and our favorite in this category.
At only 0.4 mm, the Tecnifibre Pro DRY overgrip is one of the thinnest on the market to help provide you with exceptional feel.
A few other options you may want to check out are the Babolat VS Original at 0.44 mm and the Wilson Pro Sensation, which is a thinner version of the Wilson Pro overgrip but 25% thinner.
Thickest: Yonex’s Dry Grap
On the other end of the spectrum, the Yonex Dry Grap is our favorite pick for the thickest (non-ribbed) overgrip on the market.
At 0.65 mm thick, it does a great job at absorbing sweat and keeping your hands dry, but it’s worth noting it’s not a super tacky grip.
If you’re looking for a thicker overgrip with some tack, check out the Wilson Pro, Yonex Super Grap, or Head Prestige Pro overgrip, all of which measure 0.6 mm.
Tackiest: Tourna Mega Tac
Tourna’s Mega Tac is by far the tackiest grip that we’ve ever played tried. If you’re looking for a grip that sticks, then this is an excellent option – some players may even find it too tacky.
If tacky is what you’re looking for, another option worth taking note of is the Dunlop Gecko-Tac, which does a great job of providing traction without feeling too sticky.
Most Comfortable: Head Prime
If you suffer from blisters or you’re not a big fan of some of the ultra-tacky overgrips on our list, then Head Prime might be the perfect fit to increase the comfort of your racquet’s handle. It does have some tack to it, but it’s not nearly as grippy as some of the others on our list.
If you’re looking for a grip that’s soft and doesn’t have any tack to it, then the Yonex Dry Grap, our pick for the thickest overgrip, is another excellent option that is dry to the touch and thick to provide extra comfort.
Control: Gamma Supreme Power
If you’re struggling to maintain a grip on your racquet, then you might want to consider a grip that features a raised mid-section to help provide you with more traction. Our favorite is the Gamma Supreme Power grip, which features a ridge down the middle to help increase traction.
The Yonex Wave Grab features a similar design, but the ridge isn’t quite as dramatic, which makes it a great alternative. Keep in mind that both grips will increase the size of your handle more than a typical overgrip.
Although these grips didn’t meet our criteria for the best in any specific category, their sheer popularity makes them worth mentioning.
