    It adds a lot of weight (34g untrimmed), but it feels nice and firm. I added gauze tape and a viper dry overgrip. It's a good, solid grip but I might switch to a Gamma Hi-Tec grip to save on the weight. Or I may just keep it this way to keep a cannon in my stable.

    It's also among the thicker ones...thicker than the Volkl I got at the same time.

    It is very thick and heavy. Different surface than Volkl but similar thickness and weight. Despite the thickness it is quite easy to wrap.

    I really liked it but the weight was a deal breaker for me. It just added to much weight.
