    Are there any grips that hold the bevels like a leather grip, but without the weight of leather? If not, would a heat shrink sleeve and 2 overgrips be a viable option?

    I checked it out. It looks perfect. I need it for my MuscleWeave 95, which is already 8.5 HL. Leather would have made this too HL and too heavy. Thanks for the tip!

    Ronaldo,

    Sepidoel's thread shows that the Hi-tec grip weighs 22g. The same weight as Wilson leather. Can you recommend something that weighs less?

    edit:
    It occured to me that I'll probably trim 5g off the Hi-Tec, bringing the grip to about the same weight of the 3 overgrips that I have on there now. I think I'll go for the Hi-Tec.

    Was unaware that Hi-Tec weighed that much. Good reason it feels as firm as leather. Most leather grips are near 30 grams.
