I think you mean "Thicker"

I prefer it right down the middle, leaning towards thinner. Thicker grips are great for those with classic shots, as they give less option to move the wrist. This is also most liekly better for the joints, however, the thinner grips give the wrist a little more free movement, which i feel is better for serving and extreme spinny groundstrokes. I have had success in various categories with each, so i'd say it all depends on the style of play and what kind of shots you tend to hit

I have been a long-time fan of 16g string...17 or 18, while it does give you a bit more feel, just doesn't last long enough to be worth it. 15g String lasts longer, but definitely leaves something to be desired as far as touch and feel go.

Not sure, his first line asks about grips, the second talks about string gauge. I stuck with the first. :)

Umm... Thinner grips give you more feedback, giving you more feel. Thinner strings also give you more feel. I've always preffered thicker strings since I break them way too fast. I currently use 16g in my Head PC600 and 15L in my PS 85.

I say that once you find a string you like, don't dicker with it.
