    Hi!

    I had a ResiPro Thin on my HEAD Speed IG 18x20 that felt great and with a Wilson Pro OG on top weighed to my fave exact specs .. 11.9oz.

    I realized however that indeed the grip was a little too small and went back to the original Hydrosorb that came stock with no overgrip. Weighed exactly at 11.9 but I cannot put an overgrip on it without adding a little weight. I am very sensitive to any weight change. 11.9 is most I wanna go to maintain the balance I like (head light/SW).

    Is there any synthetic grip out there that weighs the sames as ResiPro Thin (12g-14g I believe) but NOT as thin, maybe like the Hydosorb but a little lighter in weight?

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thx!

    No? If you add material, you add weight. You can't get around that.

    So there is no grip that is made with a material that weighs a few grams (3) less than a Hydrosorb with the same thickness? Thats a bummer. :(
