so i replaced a typical synthetic grip (not sure what kind) with two tournas to bring the weight down. i don't have a scale handy so approximately how much weight should i add to make up for the loss by going to two overgrips?

depending on the synthetic grip, i think two overgrips are about the same weight... i do believe an overgrip weighs around .40-.50grams and a typical synthetic weighs around .70 - 1.0...if you took off the grip do you have a balance board and you can determine from that exactly how much you have to add

haha i do believe i meant to put oz...but thanks for correcting me!!


16grams is .56oz

gamma high tech perforated is 19grams or .67oz
i was a little off on my measurement for the overgrip tho... 7-10 grams
.24-.35oz for those american measurements
