Quick review: Volkl V-Dry Overgrip

Volkl V-Dry Overgrip is maybe the most dry grip on the market!

Volkl V-Dry Overgrip is maybe the most dry grip on the market!

If you sweat a lot like me, oftentimes it’s a challenge to find an overgrip that doesn’t get too slippery, especially in hot, humid weather. I love the feel of Yonex Super Grap or Wilson Pro Overgrip, but once you hit spring and summer when the weather heats up, the grip gets too slick, and I can’t keep a good hold on my racquet. I resort to Tourna Grip, the original and most absorbent overgrip on the market…until now!

Volkl’s new V-Dry Overgrip takes moisture absorption to a whole new level. Even in the hottest of weather, this grip stays dry, and I can remain confident in my hold on the racquet. It’s not cushioned or tacky feeling, but instead  it’s dry and gritty feeling, kind of like Tourna Grip.

Personally, I found V-Dry to keep my grip even drier than Tourna Grip, and it lasts longer!  Normally, Tourna Grip works great until it starts to shred after a couple of hits, but V-Dry seems to last forever! I was playtesting a string in my customized Head MicroGel Radical over summer, and I left V-Dry on for upward of two weeks and it still was going strong!

If your hands tend to get sweaty when you play and/or you’ve been a fan of Tourna Grip in the past like I have, I highly suggest giving V-Dry a try. In terms of moisture absorption and dry feel, this new Volkl grip just might take the cake!

Thanks for reading!

Quick review: Wilson Pro Overgrip Perforated

Does it get better than the popular Wilson Pro Overgrip? Well.. It gets different. Think the high performance, super thin features of the Pro Overgrip, but with perforations. You have? The Wilson Pro Overgrip Perforated.

The improvements? Not only is feel enhanced, but it also absorbs the moisture from your hands during play so you can get a better grip on your racquet. The perforations also mean that it dries faster, so any sweat that gets absorbed, then gets wicked away.

It comes in three colors: White, Green and Pink – my favorite is the pink because, guy or girl, it just gives a bit of brightness and attitude to your demeanor on court. There are three overgrips per pack, and they are worth the try.
