    i was wondering what the advantages of LEATHER GRIP ARE. i am using wilson pro overgrips and yonex supergraps right now but am interested in trying a leather grip.

    IMO

    firmer, harder feel, you know where the bevels are
    smooth, slick surface
    economical (take quite a lot of time to wear out)

    however, if sweating, you might need a small towel close by

    best are Fairway (British), out of production, available 2nd hand online; Prince also fine

    I think leather grips kind of have a more crude feeling but they are very economical... I think they have a classier look though... I use leather grips because they look cool, that and it came with my POGs but I put over grips on them...

    I just replaced my grip with the Babolat leather from TW and had my first hit w\ it today. I can definitely feel the bevels better. I wasn't sure if I was going to stick with Tournagrip overtop or not. That is, until during warmup today, I lost grip of the racquet during a backhand. Since I've never done that w\ Tournagrip, I tossed one on. The bevel feel was still great and I didn't have anymore slippage.

    So far, I really like it.
