    Ok.. I've been using Leather grips a long time a ago..
    But now in the winter i'm having a lot of blisters (i had them before) and my callouses are blistering and turning into flesh :-|

    I want a synthetic grip that is somewhat closer to Leather but more comfortable..
    I don't like spongy and thick grips like Head Hydrosorb... it feels like a pillow

    I use to like the one that came with my K6.1 the Wilson True Replacement Grip.
    I want something comfortable and firm. I want to feel the bevels but not as hard as leather

    Give me your favourites guys :wink:

    EDIT: I use babolat VS overgrips

    Gamma Hi Tech Grip is a great firm, synthetic grip alternative to leather. I'd give it a shot. It's also relatively cheap.

    Among the ones i can get pretty cheap near my town are Wilson True Replacement Grip and Dunplop hydramax tour.

    Any input on both?

    Wilson Tru Grip is pretty good i suppose. It's a little cushy, but it doesn't bother me like the hydramax tour with the little triangles...

    Hydramax Tour is not very good. If you are coming from leather and don't like the Hydrosorb-type feel, then perhaps you might like a "dryer" feel (and yes, the VS overgrips are on the dry side). Something like Prince ResiPro? I think newer Prince racquets come with that so you might be able to "try" it out at some pro shop.

    Try the Babolat Syntec grip. I found it to be very thin and not very cushiony.
