    Can somebody have the information about the weight of replacement grips?
    Which one to choose for customizing the racquet not to making it head light? Thank you.

    The Wilson Comfort Hybrid comes in around 11g installed.

    Two overgrips equal 10-12 grams total (5-6 each).

    When pressed to save mass I use the Comfort Hybrid. On my 315s it saved several grams and I trimmed it to fit my one hand BH saving even more mass. I used the savings to increase SW and to maintain HL balanace by shifting mass to the butt.

    If you want comfort use the Hybrid. If you like bevel feel, use two OGs.

    I have the specs (weight and thickness) for well over one hundred grips and over grips in this thread here.
