The Curated Take

4.5/5

The Wilson Pro Sensation Overgrip is made for tennis players who value grip quality and aesthetics in their equipment. These grips are sleek, offer excellent tackiness for a secure hold, and are easy to apply to the racquet. However, they are not ideal for players with sweaty hands as they don't absorb moisture well, and their tackiness tends to diminish after a few sessions. Recommended for players who prefer frequent grip transformationsfor optimal performance, they are suitable for those seeking a balance of functionality and style. Bulk purchasing is advised for cost efficiency, given their relatively short lifespan.

Ideal for
  • Black/white grips look sleek on racquet
  • Tacky grips give excellent hold
  • Easy to put on
Not ideal for
  • Tackiness doesn't last very long

Expert Reviews of the Wilson Pro Sensation Overgrip (3x)

Russell Christensen I've been using these grips for over 20 years. I keep using them because I know that Wilson makes good-quality gear. When I put on a new grip, they feel great on the hands. Very grippy, which is nice since my hands are fairly dry, and the grips slide easily. One downside is they lose their tackiness after two hitting sessions, which is a bummer. I have to switch them out pretty frequently. I recommend buying these in bulk, since they will be cheaper at a unit price. I don't recommend these for sweaty hands since they don't soak up sweat well.

Review Ratings

5/5
Russell Christensen gave 5 of 5 stars. These grips are pretty light. Sometimes I have a hard time finding them in my tennis bag because I can't feel them. I don't think there is a big difference between other grips of this style, though. The heavy grips would be the leather grips. All in all, very light and of good quality.

Durability

4/5
Russell Christensen gave 4 of 5 stars. I think these grips are pretty durable. When I was on a budget, I would use a grip for a solid couple of months. They are hardly torn up and stay more grippy than most other grips. It is not like a leather grip, but it is a lot cheaper and gets the job done.

Comfort

5/5
Russell Christensen gave 5 of 5 stars. What's nice about these grips is that they are fairly soft and stretchy. The thicker they are, the softer they will be. They've always felt nice in my hands. There's no going wrong with a grip of this caliber.

Effectiveness

5/5
Russell Christensen gave 5 of 5 stars. It gets the job done. The way I perform with an old grip or no overgrip versus a new grip is a game changer. I can't imagine how I would play without a new grip. Without making that constant switch, my grip would feel old and have no tackiness, leading to my grip slipping and losing performance on the day-to-day points.

Style

5/5
Russell Christensen gave 5 of 5 stars. These grips usually come in black or white. I really like that because it's very universal — it will look good on any racquet. I use a white grip, and I think it looks flawless with my racquet.

Ease of Set Up

3/5
Russell Christensen gave 3 of 5 stars. I feel like this rating is subjective since it depends on the player's level of experience in gripping a racquet. It took me a second to figure out which side I needed to start on my first time, but after that it took maybe two minutes to put on. 

FAQs

What do you love about this product?

Russell Christensen I've used these grips for a long time, over 20 years. Wilson makes good-quality grips. They are on the tacky side, which I love — it lets me have a better grip on the racquet. I've used Gamma and Babolat grips before, but I feel like the tackiness of their grips doesn't last long. For a tacky grip that lasts, this is the grip to use.

Why did you choose this product?

Russell Christensen Part of me has been a traditionalist for a long time. I've used these grips for over 20 years, and I keep on buying them. I have used other grips, but I always come back to this one. The biggest reason I keep coming back to these is their quality. They have always been very tacky and last long. Also, the grip hasn't changed. They keep making consistent, quality grips.
