    OK...here's my deal. I have 4 racquets (LM Radicals) and they all have the same Head Hydrocontrol grip on them that was originally put on at the factory. I've had the racquets for over a year now, so the grips are fairly worn down. I don't really care how they feel because I always use overgip.

    Today, I had to take one of the grips off, so I could restaple the buttcap, so now I need to get a new grip.

    What grip would you guys reccomend to match the feel of the worn down grips on the other racquets. By worn down, I just mean they've gotten thinner (compressed from so much use), not like holes in them.

    Thanks!

    You want a thin grip? Just put an overgrip on, then another overgrip. Replacement grips are thicker than overgrips.

    I don't think I want to go quite that thin...and I also like the way replacement grips provide a flat surface for overgrip. any other suggestions?

    depending on how picky you are, i would replace all the grips at the same time...i want every racquet in my bag to feel exactly alike...

    Get the **** leather grip. they are reaaaallllly thin. Roman says that their leather grip+overgrip=standard grip size. Hope that helps
