    This is what i feel excluding the tourna over over grip ontop.
    When i had leather on it, my Head felt normal you cold easily identyfy all eight bevel along, when i placed the gamma on - due to its thicksness all along the handle you can lose the bevel - more rounded off.

    Rather than keeping its head handle shape-which i really like, but for me its not really off putiing - but i need to play with with yet, only installed it yesterday morning

    Wilson Shock Shield is good, but Sorbothane is significantly better.

    Notice how thin the gel layer is on the Shock Shield. The Sorbothane grip is made entirely of shock-absorbing material (and then you simply wrap an overgrip over it).

    The cons for Sorbothane is its extra weight (Yes, even heavier than Shock Shield) and the difficulty (more like impossibility) to wrap it neatly around the butt cap
