I don't have any secret tips, but the tighter you pull the grip the more it will stretch and the thinner it will be. Don;t be afraid to really pull tight.

The Prince More Series replacement grips are fairly thin.

Jerry is right. Some grips feel better stretched tightly than others do. If they start getting horizontal lines in the grip from being pulled taut, it probably isn't the best grip for stretching...

You can stretch them extra tight, but Head grips are known to be thinner than any other brand(then comes Dunlop inn second).The Prince Cushion Fit Replacement grips only feel thing because they are very spongy, but when you measure them they aren't.Plus there is a limit to how tightly you can pull a grip, but it's a safe bet with any Head or if you can find Softac.

The Wilson Pro (white) stretches very nicely and is a fine grip all around.
