    Hey all,

    I don't suppose any of you know the rough weight, or average weight, of an overgrip (for example, Wilson Pro or Gamma Supreme)?

    I'm trying to factor that in before applying any lead tape to my frame.

    Thanks.

    My Wilson Pro's add about 5-6 grams.

    Yonex are only 2/3-4 but i think they are thinner.. adding 15 grams to a LM rad won't make a huge difference dw.

    Wow... I didn't know it added that much weight!! That's why the M-Fil 300 I ordered from someone that had overgrip on it was heavier!!!!!!
