    Hey guys, looking for something like this. I need something to replace my leather grips without shedding the weight or adding lead, I also want something softer, any help?

    I am not searching for overgrips, just want a replacement grip.

    I also vote for the Gamma. I put one on my 4 1/4 Hornet and it is about perfect for me now. I can still feel the bevels just fine as well.

    I think everyone already hit it:

    All three are heavy, ShockShield probably heaviest, and softest. Both the ProHybrid and Hi-Tech are firm, like how leather+overgrip feels. Hi-Tech is the most tacky and durable. Personally I think Hi-Tech is perfect if you're not too sweaty.

    I got a couple ShockShields, I don't need anything like leather, I have more sensitive hands if you will say and I easily get blisters on the ring finger. Plus I need something that weighs similar to leather as well, so the balance doesn't change. I always put on around two over grips on top and so it should work fine.
