Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tourna Grip Original 3-Pack (Sports)
I've used many different type of grips before and I must say this is the worst of them all. I can't find a comfort holding position no matter what. I have no confident to swing hard due to slippage. Save your money and buy something else, anything else would be better than this. If you still insist on this grip, send me a self-addressed envelop and I will send you the other 2 grips I still have.

You say anything else would be better. What would you recommend? I am very much liking the Gamma Pro Wrap (can't speak for wear yet) and Babolat Pro Team (just bought; doesn't seem as good as Gamma). These are both dry overgrips. I don't like the tacky materials. I saw that Tourna Grip makes a Tourna Tac, so I figured these would be the dry type. LOL. I'm tempted to send you a self-addressed envelope :) Jeesh, we buy the same stuff: Purolator PureOne oil filters, WDC 1.5TB green SATA drives, beef jerky, Pfaucets, SDHC cards...

I'm using the white grip calls "Microzorb". It's for sale at Dick's Sporting good for about $5 (3 grips). I had this grip on for about 1.5 month now and it's still holding up just fine. It's stays soft, dry, and sticky even after 2/3 hours of continuous play. The only draw back is that the grip looks dirty (because it's white) on your racket. Maybe they are available in darker color, I just couldn't find any.
I didn't like this Tourna Grip because I tend to jump up & forward when I serve. When the racket make contact with the ball, I feel the racket might slip from my hand. Thus I prefer a soft & sticky grip so I can grab on real tight when I make contact with the ball. I more of a power hitter. BTW, my offer still stands if you want the 2 Tourna grip I have left 8-)

BTW, don't get the Babolat Pro Team. The embossed/stamped logo is a stress point and begins falling/chunking apart at the logo after only a few plays.

I would gladly take you up on that offer! My sister wants these for her birthday in a few weeks. She seldom plays tennis; but when she does, she has trouble with her racket's grip. We all play badminton sometimes, too. Please e-mail me at email@example.com and let me know where to mail that self-addressed envelope! @:')

I'm sorry I took so long to get back to you. I never received that self-addressed envelope from you. I'm sure you had sent it but I think my wife may have throw it away (she kinda admitted to it). Anyway, just email me your address and I'll send it to you. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
