what are the thinnest replacement grips around? i want a slightly smaller grip than currently.
Gamma Grip II is the thinnest grip available. Only 0.4mm. I find them pretty tacky and durable as well.
The two thinnest are the laserfibre reducer grip and the **** SYNTHETIC grip both are about 1.3 mm thick. I havve used both and they are excellent , I preferred the **** , a bit firmer.
sorry those are not replacement grips, but overgrips.
thanks i might try the laserfibre grip. but i can't find a place that sells **** synthetic. do you know of one?
The Babolat Skin Feel grip is supposed to be really thin and you can get it here at TW.
ok which one's a better grip:
LaserFibre TourtFit Reducer TwinTone Grip
LaserFibre TourtFit Reducer Grip
I have only used the tour fit reducer, **** has their own website , so you may want to check them out , they are about $15 as I remember but they are very durable .
I've tried a few recently from the selection available on TW and so far, Dunlop Hydramax Pro is the thinnest. IMO, it's not playable as is (too slippery) but I always use an overgrip so not a problem here.
Another strategy I use is to put a Unique What-A-Grip directly over the bare grip, followed by an overgrip. It's similar to what you get with two overgrips over a bare grip except that you don't get extra ridges from the overlap of the grip material. So far, Dunlop Hydramax Pro + overgrip is about the same as the What-A-Grip + overgrip on a grip that is one size bigger.
how are laserfibre grips without any overgrips?
its not the thinnest grip ever, but i've been happy with head hydrosorb. its a lot thinner than some
laserfibre are good without overgrips , not real durable, as are the skin feel, **** must be used with overgrips.
Kirschbaum Touch It Overgrip, it's 0.5mm thick. Feels better than the Gammas and tournagrip, but only comes in white...
why do you recommend overgrip? that's not replacement grip.
my local big 5 had head hydrosorbs so i got one and i have to say this grip is not that thin. it was definitely thicker than the wilson cushion-aire perforated that i originally had on. replaced the grip anyways and will give it a try today. thanks.
i'm probably gonna go ahead and order laserfibre grips, both kinds of reducer type.
tried the head grip today and i was actually pleased. maybe i'll use those for now.
you can use a yogi condom ... lol
That's what you mean right? You make me wanna try it haha. Care to describe the feel and compare it to a leather grip perhaps?
I really like the Dunlop Hydramax Pro. Thin so I can feel the countours almost as well as leather. I found the black to be substantially tackier than the white. The black also has better durability - replacing the grip every couple weeks is about the same cost as overgrips everyday.
