    I want to increase a grip size a bit without adding weight -- tried a heat shrink sleeve, but that changes the balance too much.

    Can anyone recommend a thick but light replacement grip that isn't too spongy?

    Steve try the Volkl DNX replacement grip...It is light..dont now if you would call it thick, but it does make the DNX series frames appear to have a larger gripsize even though the handle pallet beneath is the same as it's been. It's also a firmer grip and those tend to feel larger than the highly cushioned grips which you can really compress

    Thanks Ed -- can you compare the DNX grip with the Cushtrac? I put one of those on a racquet recently, and it also seemed to increase the size. I'm thinking of either one of those or the Prince Air Cushion. Any further comments?

    If the Cushtac is the same grip that used to come on the Volkls, the DNX one would feel thicker
