I always liked the TW private label grip which was the thinner of the two thicknesses available. But, it appears that TW is out of stock. Any suggestions for a thin leather grip?

Babolat Leather is rather thin.

After reading all the good things about the Head Leather Grip, I got the bug and ordered two. I replaced the TW thin grips with the Head and really like the Head better.

Let me look, I might have one or two TW thin grips that I haven't used if you're interested.

Here's is a thread where I measure before and after...

The TW Thin leather wrapped and cut on a Prince EXO 3 was about 3 grams heavier than the stock synthetic grip. The TW leather grip is 17 grams versus 14 grams for the synthetic grip.

i sent you an email if still available.

Yes, I saw that. I'll look tomorrow and reply, thanks.

Very nice..im thinking of going back to that. I have babolat leather now. It doesnt absorb that well though. Using tourna on top.

Rabbit, I'm actually demoing the IG Prestiges and the Bio. 300 this week and really like the feel of the Head leather myself. I have TW leathers on my Londons, but they push the balance a little more headlight than I want to go. Maybe I got the medium thickness; I can't remember.

Do you happen to know the trimmed weight of the Head leathers? If I stick with the Londons, I may go this route, as they're reported to be lighter, and the feel is exceptional; that I do know.

I'm actually leaning towards buying and modifying a Bio. 300. In that case, I'd most likely go with Volkl leather for more weight and headlightness, as I put quite a bit of lead in the head of Dunlop 300's. As usual, thanks!
