    Hi Everyone -

    I have hand issues and was a big fan of Wilson Soft Shock replacement grips. I think it's been discontinued, and am trying to find something as soft and good.

    What's the softest, most cushioned grip out there these days?

    Thanks!

    One of the softest replacement grips I've used is Head Hydrosorb Tour. That with an overgrip is very soft.

    Try the Unique Re-Grip. It is very soft, but it is also thicker than most grips.

    I think it was called 'smartsorb' by Head which was heavily recommended to me... might be worth investigating?

    I like the Prince Durasoft+. Unlike most of the gel backed grips out there, it has a uniform layer of gel across the full width so it lays flat, absorbs shock well and is pretty durable to boot. The Gamma Hi Tech Gel has a more exaggerated contour, not quite as high as the Soft Shock grip but still pretty high and some really nice tackiness. If you like that peak and valley approach to grip design the Hi Tech Gel might suit you.
