Babolat VS Grip (http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageACBAB-BVS10PK.html)is one of the thinnest, per their marketing literature. I used to use tournagrip, like these better. Wearing seems abotu the same, maybe better than the tournagrip.

Play well,

I got one of these free and can't wait to try it. The feel seems awesome.

Umm, tourna-grip is a brand - those you've listed aren't tourna-grip.

I have no clue what you're talking about, but OK. Just thought I'd throw out a choice I use that seemed to meet your criteria.

I was talking about blue cloth grip/copy of tourna grip from a different company. I was just referring to it because it was the original blue cloth like grip.

How does it feel? Does it have the smooth absorbant feel of the tournagrip? Because it looks to have a tacky feel like a wilson pro or equivalent. I might try it, please get back to me. thx.

Doesn't feel like a wilson pro, only way I can describe it is kind of like a smoother, slightly softer version of tournagrip (like tournagrip is when it's brand new and dry). They keep that feeling better than tournagrip does - I think the tournagrip has a whole different feel once it gets damp.

I've played 12 sets (split over 2 rackets, fairly evenly) with them now, and the grips are shedding their outer layer in a dime-sized spot under the callous of my thumb, the rest of it is slightly not-as-white, but they're certainly still playable.

I used tournagrip for the last ...gee, hard to tell. Forever. And I really like these better - just ordered another 12 when I bought some other stuff.

play well,
Andrew
