View Full Version : thin replacement grips that still absorb shock

Does anybody know of a good thin replacement grip that doesnt make the racquet feel sluggish, and still absorb shock? I would like something that's farily light too, not too light tho. I prefer grips that are flat, no texture pls. The texture on the cushion grip that came with my RDS 001 is killing me. Thanks.

The two colored LaserFibres could be of interest to you. I understand they're very thin and don't require overgrips, meaning you can really benefit from the extra feel (but you may have to go to a larger diameter handle). I don't know about their vibration absorbing properties, though, but I've read that they feel very sweet, in general.

Edit: Hey, but let me add a comment; grips and/or overgrips shouldn't be selected for their vibration dampening properties. All that should matter is feel and how well they "grip" to your hand. Unless you have some arm/hand problem/s.
