    I'm using TF335 and it doesn't have 4 3/8 grip size so it's a little bit big to me. I tried using two overgrips but I don't really like the feel. The origical grip that was on TF335 was Tecnifibre X-tra Red Tac Grip or something. So is there a thinnest replacement grip that can decrease the grip size a bit?

    I would recommend give the Head SoftTac Replacement Grip a try. It is one of the thinner ones. Good luck.

    I'll second this request.

    I have the same problem - been using 2 overgrips for awhile now but would love an alternative.

    Thinnest replacement grip?

    The new wilson k-grips and the head soft-tac, doesnt get any thinner than that, I know what you're looking for. Recntly I tries 3 overgrips only, no replacement grip. Did not like it, it effected the swingweight too much, although dropping the static weight and give me about two more head points heavy. So the thinnest grip will more than likely have an effect on all these aspects as they wont weigh as much, yonex has some pretty thin grips as well, the super grips, or whatever they're called.

    Yonex Cushion Grip. Thats the yonex one. TW does not sell yonex replacements, but you can find them, my pro shop does.

    Leather grips are also fairly thin.

    I thought leather grips are thicker than synthetic?

    LaserFibre TwinTone Replacement grips are the thinnest I have encountered.

    LaserFibre TourFit claim to size a grip down by 1 size. I tried it and it seems to work well. The rep on the phone said they were thinner than even the twintone. He also suggested stretching the grip as you wrap it.

    It seems this question has been asked and answered about 3-4 times this weekend. Maybe it should be a sticky?
