    I just stumbled upon this grip while checking out some demos...
    It felt great....
    Has anyone tried this replacement grip?
    Also, is it on the thin side?

    Thanks

    It has a dry style feel. Some people like it and some don't. I think it's about average thickness for cushion grip. It's definitely thicker than some of the thinner replacement grips I've used.

    It's a great replacement grip!! Good tack, not too thick or thin. While i'm a leather +OG kinda person, many of our customers love it. :)

    Yea - everyone loves it - comfortable, grips nicely and strikes perfect balance between firm and spongy.

    #1 replacement in my book.

    I agree. I'm not a Prince fan, but as grips go, this one is very nice. Provides plenty of feel. They make a resi-soft which is softer and spongier.

    Resi Pro is nice but not cheap. Skin Feel IMO is the next best thing to leather.

    It is from Babolat. Light and thin. And unlike leather, its easy to stretch and put on nicely. But the tape that comes with all Babolat replacement and over grips suck!!!

    I like the Resi Pro a lot. There's nothing better than leather plus overgrip in my book, but I have a couple racquets that are too headlight with leather grips, so I opted for the Resi Pro instead. With an overgrip on top, it's not too soft and I can still feel the bevels. I also like the Skin Feel grip, but the racquets I considered if for already had undersized grips (ie. not quite 5/8), and I didn't want to reduce them further.
