    I was looking at the leather replacement grips and was wondering which one you guys thought was the best. I have found the gamma, babolat, tennis warehouse brand and couple others. I really like my grips thin so I can feel the handle and bevels.

    Eh? I just bought some TW leather the other day. I haven't used it yet, but it looks to be pretty high quality stuff.

    i have a leather grip on my racquet, I was just wondering what are the benefits of having a leather one as opposed to the normal grip. And if any, are there any downsides?

    Just spoke to a TW rep on the phone and she said they were out of stock, but were expecting another shipment in the near future. They don't have a firm date yet, so they simply ghosted the product instead of putting a fake date on the page.

    Seems a little odd, but she sounded like it was no big deal. Plus, she asked other folks there to make sure she had her story straight, so I'm inclined to believe her.

    Anyways, she said they were a pretty hot selling item, so I doubt they just stopped carrying it. Seems to be a bit of a mixup or a supplier issue, but only temporarily.

    The TW leather grips are superb. Hopefully they restock soon and will continue to carry these. The thread over in the questions section had a response from TW saying the leather grips would be restocked.

    I miss the fairway leathers so much :(

    But for the past 6 years my Volkl's have been wrapped with babolat leather, they were the best ones at that time (imo).

    Never even heard of TW Leathers (been out of the game for a long time) .. I hope they re-stock them so I give them a try.

    I really like the Babolat - can't beat the price.

    Haven't tried the TW, but will do as soon as they're back in stock. (Oct 1st)
