I am just curious as to the percentage of people on here that use leather.
Yes I do. The firm feel is what I prefer.
I just wished there would be comparison on thickness & weight.
It's hard to polarize with a heavy grip.
volkl leather for me.
Not currently but I'm seeking for one. Is there any one that are around 20gr or lower? Please list for me the lightest ones that you've ever heard of. Thanks!
There is... The Kimony 0.8mm definitely weighs below 20g untrimmed. Problem is, it's so thin you might as well not put it on.
I am looking for a leather grip 1.3mm to 1.5mm that weighs below 20g untrimmed.
Always OG though.
+1, definitely a good choice
Head Leather with OG
Dunlop leather with Tourna Grip.
Diehard TW leather, and loving' it.
Babolat leather grip. Great feel. I keep it dry using cornstarch, which I keep in my pocket.
Gamma Leather is my preference, no overgrip.
I am surprised to see such a large majority use leather. I am guessing that the non-leather people arent voting.
10 Volkl leather grips
TW thin leather with no OG
I've been a fan of Head Leather for a while now, really digging Fair way though, it's a bit pricey though!
dunlop leather with a wilson pro sensation og
Prince calfskin leather with OG
I'm a fan of Babolat although some times they really don't wrap flat no matter how hard I try!
My favourite is an old Gamma that is slightly lighter in colour and thinner than the current batch, I'm trying to match it some how.
How do you guys like the Dunlop? Thickness etc. does it wrap flat?
Head Tour - seems good - cant imagine there being much difference between brands - especially when one applies an overgrip.
Anyone used prince calf skin?
I may be looking for some leather sometime, does anybody know if Yonex sells leather grips, I'm mean, I have Yonex racquets and I wanted to have the Yonex leather as well.
Besides Yonex, which one is the best one?
Does Fairway still make leather grips?
If so, how much?
Fairway still makes them, they are distributed by Vantage however I believe. Something like 21 bucks a grip.
I tried TW Leather. Even with an overgrip, it was just too hard on my hand. I loved the pure and firm feel from it. But it wasn't as comfortable as a standard synthetic grip.
I can't go back to playing with a synthetic grip, everything feels to mushy to me. I currently use Gamma leather, but I don't really have a preference, it just happened to be the cheapest.
I use Babolat Leather w/a Babolat overgrip because the leather does add a little firmness to the feel of the racquet and a little more weight, it may be my immagination but I think a leather grip makes for a more powerful racquet.
