Does anyone just use a stock/replacement grip?

    I know a lot of you like to use leather grips and also use overgrips, but I was just wondering if anyone uses a stock or replacement grip on its own?

    I have tried many options and alternatives but always find myself preferring a 'standard' grip on its own. Am I the only one?

    Who else just uses the standard grip and if so, what do you use?

    I recently switched to the Donnay XP Dual and really like their cushioned grips. In the winter, at least, I have not needed an over grip for perspiration.

    I like the head hydrasorb grip. I'm thinking of buying a black one to replace the white that gets dirty too quick.

    In the winter, on cooler days, I use the stock leather on my Bio Max 200Gs.

    I prefer original or replacement grip - very seldom I use overgrips (only to increase grip size or over leather grips).

    I use Technibre Xtra Grip & Gosen Nano Cushion.

    I'm trying to find a replacement synth grip that's really durable though.

    I love the feel if just using a synth grip, but durabilty is something that I struggles to find.

    I don't like to use overgrips. My choice of the grip is prince resipro or resithin.
    Even though the durability is not good, I can't use any other grips.
    Just perfect grip for me ^_^

    ^^ me too. Ive tried so many overgrips and apart from losing a bit of feel, I never feel the traction is as good as it is with just a synth grip.

    I just wish Dunlop would make a better range of grips that were durable. The ones they currently make are ok, but the outer layer is not very tough. I'm a bit of a traditionalist and like to have the same brand grip on my rackets. i just wish there was a durable one that didnt have branding on it.
