    Anyone know some heavy synthetic grips? I was going to try to not use an overgrip. I didnt want to change the balance too much? Thanks I use the K90 by the way.

    Oh and I didnt want to have to use lead. Thanks

    Wilson Shock Shield weighs as much as leather.

    I can second this. I think I lost only 2 grams on a racquet that I changed from a leather grip to a Shock Shield. It's a comfy grip too.

    TW says their branded leather grips are in the 28g to 32g range. Here are synthetic grips I've used (Shock Shield comes closest):

    Dunlop Hydramax Tour (white) 21g / 0.75 oz
    Wilson Cushion Air Contour 20g / 0.70 oz
    Wilson Shock Shield Hybrid 27g / 0.95 oz
    Wilson K (Kontrol) Grip 18g / 0.65 oz
