The Babolat VS Original Overgrip is the thinnest overgrip in the world (0.40 mm). This grip does not modify the size of the racquet handle, but instead provides exceptional feel and unmatched performance. Our team found that the VS Original actually aids in preventing pesky calluses and painful blisters that usually occur from long hours of play. Babolat`s new material technology protects the overgrip against humidity, dirt, and optimizes overall playability and durability.

Babolat VS Grip Original Overgrips
I like these over grips because they play well in both arid and humid climates. Additionally, they do not add size to my racket handle.
good colors and function
I like the colors and functionality of these overgrips. I prefer overgrips with more tack on the outside for feel but do not like how the tacky grips adhere to my original grip and cannot really be cleanly removed. This original VS grip removes cleanly which I do like.
BABOLAT Original VS Grip Overgrips
Very useful, I like it, will buy more.
All in all, above average grip. More durable, but not as comfortable as Tournagrip.
This was my first order from Tennis Express and they far exceeded my expectations. Very fast service! Thanks!
This is the first time I ordered this and I really like the feel. Soft but very grippy. Will definitely order more.
My Favorite Overgrip
I use this overgrip on my Aeropro GT and I absolutely love it. Very thin, sweat absorbant and fairly durable. It has a very soft feel to it as well. Recommend.
Babolat overwrap grip
Fair performance. Probably wouldnt recommend. Holds up as good as any other overwrap. Not as absorbant as I would have hoped.
These are some of the best dry feel tennis overgrips I have tried. They are pretty durable and feel great in my hand.
Babolat VS Grip Overgrips
Okay performance - overgrip is soft and relatively durable, but not as grippy and absorbent as I normally prefer.
Waste of Money
My biggest disappointment was that I walked in the store and asked the person who strings/regrips racquets to help me choose an overgrip because I had never used one - he said this was a good one, then after he put it on for me, I went to pay for it. The guy at the counter said, Are you buying this overgrip It will not last you more than a week. I went ahead and purchased it - and low and behold that man was right! It has been a waste of money! It lasted me 2 weeks. It ripped all up and tore. Hope this helps someone else.
I dont care what anyone else says about this grip because personally, I love this grip! I bought 2 twelve packs and use them on every single racquet I have. Its like Tourna Grip but only softer and it lasts so much longer. The best overgrip ever!
Babolat VS Overgrip
If youre looking for an overgrip that truly doesnt change the grip size and you dont sweat too much, this is a perfect overgrip.

Dads B-day Gift~!
My dad turned 73 this year and he used to be a trophy winning tennis player, back in the 70s. Unfortunately in the past few years my father has endured not one but, two knee replacement surgeries. Since getting his new knees he took up tennis again - at 71 years old~!!! LOL
Not to brag... but, my dad is a really good player for his age and I am just as proud of him as I was back in the day. On his b-day this year I said, dad what can I get you Every year his answer is the same nothing dear! In a conversatoin with him this year, my father randomly said to me wow, did you see Rafael Nadals tennis shirt, it matched the Court!! After hearing this I knew just what to get him for a b-day gift this year - Raphaels shirt!!!! I looked everywhere but the only place to find such a unique item was the Tennis Express site. I was excited as I was able to get it for him, as no other company carried them. On his birthday my dad rang me to say he had received the parcel and had already played a game
I was really excited about these grips and wouldn't even share one since they are hard to find but they did not meet my expectations. Maybe it is because it is so humid where I live and others may really like them.
The VS Originals are the bombshizzle!
Firstly I want to note that these are definitely the thinnest overgrip Ive ever used while playing tennis - when wrapping on a new grip it feels relatively close to my grip size, or in other words, it stays true to your grip size.
Im currently using VS whites on both of my Babolat PSTs. I enjoy the grip for as long as it lasts, but once the grip becomes worn out, the enjoyment is slightly decreased, and thats the reason for the 4-starred Product Performance. Thats my only big concern - the durability. If you play at a 3.5+ level and four or more hours a week, dont expect this grip to last you a month without ANY wear.
I still swap between the VS Originals and Tourna Grip. They both have their pros and cons to different scenarios. In that state of mind, Id say that VS Originals are worth a try at the least.
A solid performer, better absorbency than Wilson grips, while still thin enough. Tourna grip better and longer lasting, but seems to be thicker. Babolat product is good compromise.
Pretty good grip. Nice feel. Doesnt change the grip size. Wish it was longer & more durable.
Babolat over grip
I thought I would try this babolat over grip. I usually use the Wilson over grip, but trying this babolat grip I am really impressed. Love it - absorbs my sweat from my hands playing in this hot Houston sun for sure.
Really works for me!
I love the colors, I seldom change grips because they become dirty easily but thats the least of my worries, so far so good for me, Ive been using this for 2 years now!
These might be my favorite overgrips. They are extremely thin, so they dont interfere with the size or feel of the normal grip. They are slightly tacky less tacky than Wilson Pro, and have never caused me any problems with blisters. They also last a really long time. The only downside is that they dont absorb very much moisture, so wrist bands are a must.
