Comments: I put the black grip (the black feels tackier than the blue)
over a 4 5/8 grip on a Donnay X-Yellow 99 that already had an overgrip as
well. it takes a bit of finesse to apply but it is doable. Because of hand size I need in excess of a 4 5/8 grip. The WhatAGrip
black stretches taut over my racquet grip and provides just the right
amount of additional diameter, tack and cushion that I need. The grip's seems don't seem to pinch in my hand yet the tension of
the WhatAGrip still allows me to feel them in hand. It helps reduce blisters for me as well. I recommend the product.

Comments: After wrestling this over-grip into place, I enjoyed only three sets with it before wearing through to the
mesh in a number of places. Felt great but is remarkably delicate - Yonex Super Grab or Wilson Pro are far better deals, much
easier to apply, and far outlast this one.
From: David, USA, 1/12
Comments: Great feel and grip. Okay to put on and feels better than tape. I just wish it would last longer than it
did. I used it over 2 months, about 70 hours of tennis and it started ripping.
From: Ken, Ft. Myers, FL 04/09
Comments: It only takes a few minute to put on. I am not sure what the problem is here. They are very comfortable
and NEVER have grip slip. The only flaw I have to replace them every few months.
From: Desiree. 2/09
Comments: I've used these for years and prefer them to other overgrips. My palms sweat a lot, but my grip never
slips with these. I the only downside is that I need to change them about every 4 - 5 sets.
From: George, Morristown, NJ, USA. 7/08
Comments: It's pretty hard to put on, but it's thick, giving a solid, sturdy feel. It's pretty tacky, though not even
close as absorbent as the original Tourna Grip. I think I'll switch back to the original Tourna Grip.
From: nick c., las vegas, NV, USA. 5/08
Comments: I've used three, and after the latest one somehow got shredded, I've decided, NEVER AGAIN! It is a huge
hassle to put on, and the instructions totally don't work. How are you supposed to get it over that little bag? In addition, the
length is always way too short, and the bottom of the racket doesn't get covered. So, sometimes when I hit, the heel of my hand
gets really uncomfortable.
From: Cookie, Madison, WI, USA, 07/07
Comments: This is the worst grip I've ever used before. It is very hard to put on. This grip does not last long at all.
It feels good in the beginning only. I highly recommend the Yonex super grap. It is cheaper and a lot better than this grip. The
Yonex super grap last for a long time and absorbs good sweat from your hand, and it is very tacky.
From: Joc, Bejing, China, 01/07
Comments: Love the grip. It may take some doing putting it on but what does one expect. Sharing it with many
players at the Indiana University Tennis Center. Many pleased customers!
From: Charolette Aydelotte
Comments: This grip is terrible it took me so long to put on and when I did it wore out fast it made my grip bigger
but Tourna grip and all Wilson grip is great
From: Donen, Columbia, SC, USA, 12/06
Comments: I used this grip once and I wasn't impressed. A couple minutes after I applied this grip it started to slip
and worst of all this was happening during a match. It really bugged me. There is one upside to this grip, it lasts pretty long
without getting messed up. If you put it on correctly. It is not that bad.
From: Olen, CA USA 08/06
Comments: I just bought and used one of these. Went on very easy for me, and it felt great new,
BUT, it completely fell apart in within 30 minutes (literally). Since I had brought it urgently on the way to a court, I
was then just left with just my very hard, slippery, leather grip to play on for the next hour! Horrible!
From: Samos, Seattle, WA, USA 04/06
Comments: If you are considering this overgrip, please reconsider for these
reasons. 1) As you have read, this over grip is an enormous pain to put on. 2) The grip is
very thick resulting in a loss of control. 3) At no point in time does this grip have good tack. 4)
Read the back label of this product: Unique even explains that the material that this is made
of is not very durable... and they are right. 5) The cost is too high. 6) There are better options
within this brand. There is no wonder why tourna grip is so incredibly popular, it is the best
overgrip available. Save yourself the $5.00 on this grip and get three of the original
tournagrips (XL or not) for two dollars less and enjoy a better grips in EVERY aspect.
From: Peter, Beaver, PA, USA 01/06
Comments: I used to use this What a grip. It takes 20 minutes to get on, some
people don't have time to do this. The grip also wore out in 2 1:30 minute sessions. I mean
wore out as in holes in it. It also didn't absorb sweat very well, it just made the handle more
wet than it was. Don't buy this. I don't recommend this grip. If you like Unique, try the Tourna
Grip. I like the Gamma Supremes.
From: Chris, Lapeer, Michigan, USA 07/05
Comments: It took me forever to put this thing on. But this is the only thing that I
found negative about this grip. I have a many Prince racquets and I couldn't use it on the one
with the Air+ handle though. Great performance grip. I would recommend this, just beware of
putting it on.
From: Alex, Western North Carolina, USA. 02/05
Comments: This is quite the grip. I love using it, especially when my hand is all
sweaty. Usually, my hand would slip and slide from using other grips. But not with this one. It
does not last as long, however, but just buy more.
From: Albert, Hershey, PA, USA. 09/04
Comments: It's a very nice grip to use, but is a little hard to put on. It is very
absorbent of my sweat. I have torn the grip before, and never really noticed that it was torn
(even though it is where I grip my racquet). I would definitely recommend this grip.
From: Wes, North Carolina, USA. 08/04
Comments: I don't care for this grip. When I tried to put it on, I gently placed it on
my racquet, and it STILL ripped! The texture was nice, but I never got to use it.
From: Tommy, Columbus, Ohio, USA. 07/04
Comments: I love this grip. It really absorbs sweat and stays tacky. It is better
than the Yonex grip (my former favorite) in my opinion. A little hard to get on, and a little short
for extended length racquets, but overall, awesome!
From: Mike, New York, NY, USA. 6/04
Comments: This grip makes you feel like you are in control of your game and
racquet. This grip really gives me a lot of control, and stops the racquet from spinning or
rotating in my hand.
From: Kyle, Hoschton, GA, USA. 4/04
Comments: This grip is a great grip for any one who sweats a lot. I play
tournaments and matches and this grip lasts the longest. It is good on hot days because it
absorbs sweat and feels good.
From: Tyler, So. Charleston , WV, USA. 1/04
Comments: Comfortable and excellent grip, once you learn how to put it on, it
Prevents blisters and keeps a great grip, even on sweaty hands.
Great product, personally the best grip all around, great feel and cushioning!
From: Diego, Curacao, Netherlands, Antillies. 11/03
Comments: I live and play in Florida, year round (that means I play three/four
times a week in June, July, August, and September in Florida). I have tried most of the grips
and overgrips over my thirty plus years of tennis and the cushioned What-a-Grip is by far the
most comfortable and slip-resistant. They should improve the durability where my thumb
rests to make this excellent product even better.
From: Jim, Florida, USA. 8/03
Comments: Very comfortable, also prevent blisters. Take some time to put on,
but once it's on. You'll love it!
From: Linus, San Jose, CA, USA. 7/03
Comments: I love these. I use them all the time. They absorb sweat like crazy
and don't separate like wrap-around grips do. It takes a while to learn how to put them on,
but they are wonderful. And the cushioning is nice, too.
