Fairway Leather - 25g
Wilson Leather - 22g
Head Leather - 23g
Pacific leather -18g
Volkl Leather -30.4g
All of the above are untrimmed, straight from the package[entire contents less applicator]

According to Larry, Volkl wins.

I'm trying to get rid of the leather grip on a Wilson K 90.
If I replace it with a normal synthetic grip, do you think the handle will get thicker ?

g's and Kilo g's are used by Europeans to measure weight.
Somehow, in their stupidity, they also insist that kids learn them in 4th grade.:grin:

Well if Azrael was talking about grams, then that still doesn't mean that the Volkl is thickest. That number can represent possibly a heavier adhesive component among other things.

I won't have time to work on this handle until I buy another racquet, string another 2 frames etc. For now, I'm not doing anything to it, it's my only K90.

The thickest leather grip I have ever used is Fairway.
