I don't think replacement grips will reduce racquet vibration. The only thing that will reduce vibration would be your vibration dampener on the strings.

Put some lead at 3/9 before you start changing gips. Im pretty sure they will all have the same amount of vibrations tho.

Leather grips are supposed to help reduce some vibration but I'm guessing you probably don't want to have too much extra weight.

Leather grips have more vibration than sythetic ones , thats why they have more feel!

Thanks for correcting me, I remembered the effect of a leather grip the other way. My mistake for speed-reading.

Actually grips can make a difference. I put a Wilson Dry-Comfort on my wife's KZen Team and it is noticeably more comfortable than the OEM Wilson grip. Grips will not tame a really harsh feeling racquet on their own, though.

I would imagine any grip that's relatively thick would cushion the vibrations. What you can do is apply 2 or 3 overgrips if you really want to test that out.

I would recommend the Head Hydrosorb for max cushion.
