So we all can agree that the Fairway leather grips are the best in the world. However, I don't feel like spending $40 of my hard earned money to buy one Fairway tennis grips...yes, that is what they are going for these days....very limited supply and a very high demand.

Okay, so my question to all of you is this. I have narrow my interest down to two brands, the Volkl leather grips and the TW (Tennis Warehouse) leather grips. I've been told by some that the closest thing to the Fairway leather grip is the Volkl leather grip. I just need a very thourough and honest review between the TW leather grips and the Volkl leather grips. Thanks!

I am currently using the TW leather grip 1.3 25 on my babolat pure storm team no overgrip and I'm loving it. My hands dont sweat much and I really like the pronounced bevels, precise grip changes, and smooth feel that the tw leather grip provides.

I haven't tried a TW leather grip but I do have a volkl and several fairways and they are nothing alike. Everyone here says TW grips are pretty good so I would try that.

The volkl that I have is redish brown with a waxy feel that's nothing like a fairway. The only thing good about it is it's extra long for long handle rackets.
