If you are looking for the tackiest grips of them all…look no further! After playtesting Tourna Grip Mega Tac Overgrip ourselves and running a playtest on our message boards, Talk Tennis, we are confident in saying that if you are a fan of tacky grips, this one is definitely the one for you!
This new Mega Tac grip from Tourna is the tackiest grip to ever have been created. Not only is it tacky, but it also lasts longer than any other grip you’ve used — retaining its tack for up to 14 hours of play.
Being that the chilly fall days are here and winter is right around the corner, this is the grip for the brisk season of tennis playing! During the summer, you probably want a grip that will absorb the most sweat (think Tourna Grip), but in the colder temps and with less sweat, tacky is what you want when it comes to finding the perfect grip for your game. Hot or cold weather aside, we ran a playtest on Talk Tennis (our message board) and found that players are really loving this grip no matter the temperature outside! Check out some of the feedback we received from the Talk Tennis playtesters:
“Tourna wasn’t lying when they said that this is their tackiest grip. This grip had A LOT of tackiness — it was so tacky! My hand was literally stuck to the racquet when I was hitting! The grip didn’t slip at all! I was pretty impressed of the level of tackiness that the grips had. I have been searching for an overgrip that had this level of tackiness and I finally found it! On my serves and groundstrokes, my hand was locked onto my racquet and my racquet wasn’t slipping, especially with players who hit heavy balls. Would I consider switching to this overgrip? It is at the top of my list of overgrips that I consider siwtching to — it’s perfect! The grip is tacky and it lasts long!”
“I have had a chance to play with Mega Tac in hot, humid conditions. I have been using the original blue Tourna Grip for years. Living in the SouthEast, I have found that Tourna Grip handles sweat better than other grips. I have to admit that I usually change the Tourna Grip about every 2-3 hours during the summer months, but it stays dry longer that other grips. During the Winter months, I have experimented with Wilson and Prince overgrips and I have to admit they are really nice but, again, I just find Tourna Grip is better in the humid conditions in the Southeast and handles sweat better than other brands. Was it easy to apply? Yes, I did not have any problems. It really stuck to my Volkl grip nicely and took me maybe a minute to apply. I have used Tourna Grip as my main overgrip for probably 15+ years. However to be honest, I’m about to change when this one becomes available. For me, I found this grip to have the best of both the original Tourna Grip and other brands like Prince/Wilson. I’ve always thought Wilson and Prince grips had a nice tackiness but it was the sweat issue that I had problems with. This new Mega Tac has more tackiness than those brands and I have found it handles sweat even better than Tourna Grip. I primarily hit topspin probably 90% of the time on both sides and this one really grips your hand in a great way. I have found that I am hitting even better topspin with this grip because my hand is not slipping at all. I really was a little hesitant due to past experiences with grips that have this type of tackiness. However, after using it for 2 days in hot and humid weather, it is still going strong. I would have changed my original Tourna Grip after last night but this one seems to handle sweat at least twice as nice as Tourna Grip. As it becomes available, I will be switching to it.”
