    According to this the head finest calfskin is thinner than babolat skin feel, 1.2mm vs 1.5.. Always thought the calfskin would be thicker.. Great thread very helpful

    I just bought a Prince Textreme Tour 100p in 5/8, but it's still too small with an over grip. I think it would take like two tourna grips to fit right. Instead, what would be the thickest tacky over grip I could use? Otherwise, I guess I could put on a thicker base grip. I don't like heat sleeves.

    I've found Volkl Super Perf and Super Grip II to be on the thicker side.

    I unwrapped the stock grip of my new Donnay Pro One Tri, I see it listed as 9 g. Mine was 11 g, I didn't measure thickness, but it is a very thin base grip. Donnay have named it "Cushion"...

    Great stuff here. I am looking to buy some leather grips for a couple different brands of frames. As such, I was interested in knowing which grips are stamped with branding or logos like Babolat and Wilson, and which are void of markings like the TW leather and Tourna leather. I was thinking this thread could compile that info as well as grips with "neutral" markings like Fairway leather.

    Anyway, are there any other unmarked leather grips I could buy besides TW and Tourna?

    I've just received a couple of new Prince ResiThin replacement grips and they are now being marketed on the packaging as being 1.4mm thick.

    Babolat Leather Black, Dry & Thin is the best I've used.
    Great hand feeling, only one (synthetic or natural) that has endured the friction of the wheels for at least one class.

    I realized it was a bit off topic so the package says 27g/0.95oz weight, 1.65mm/0.06in thick
