    question: do leather grips have more vibration than say a synthetic one? i am currently using a synthetic grip with an overgrip and my question is if i switch to a leather grip+overgrip will there be more shock/vibration? or is it the same? [my thinking is the synthetic grip is soft so it absorbs more shock and leather is more firm so it doesnt absorb a lot of shock]

    In my experience leather does transfer the shock more than a typical synthetic.
