Head Xtreme Soft Racquet Overgrip Review

Recently I decided to try a new overgrip. I was looking for something softer and more sweat absorbing. I picked Head Xtreme Soft overgrip partly due to its name (Xtreme Soft) and partly due to reviews.

My Experience

At the moment I have used it for more than three weeks (ca 20 hours of tennis) and here are my thoughts about it.


+ price
+ very durable, still using the first grip
+ easy to apply (do not forget to peel off the transparent backing strip)
+ not tacky, but still providing perfect grip
+ incredibly soft, no gross, no abrasion (that is very important if you play long matches and practice sessions)
+ sufficient sweat absorption

+ available in six different colors: blue, white, pink, red, black, and yellow.

– there are just two colors available if you buy 30-pack

Pricing & Summary

Overall I am extremely satisfied. I have a good feeling during the play and do not have problems with wet hands or blisters. For me, Head Xtreme soft is an ideal overgrip solution and I will probably stick with it for a long time.

From a value for money point of view, you have three different options. You can either buy a pack of three, a pack of thirty, or a pack of sixty overgrips. Surprisingly, the best price of one piece you will get in 30-pack. The downside of this choice is its availability, just in black or white color. So if you care about the overall color look of your racket and white and color does not match with your frame, you should look elsewhere (pack of three or sixty).

I would recommend starting with the smallest one box, the pack of three. It allows you to try and test. Then if you will be as satisfied as I go for a bigger box to save some money.
