    On average I think they are about the same in thickness. The big difference, is that the leather is a MUCH firmer feeling grip.

    Agreed that leather doesn't conform nearly as much as even the hardest synthetic, but they have similar thickness's.

    Will they have the same thickness after use of a period of time?
    Or will the synthetic be compressed more than the leather (even when using an overgrip)

    leather is firmer, shows the bevel better and heavier (by about 10-12g)
