    I did a search and the consensus was that the thinnest light weight replacement grip is the Laserfibre TourFit Reducer grip. So I go to the Laserfibre store on-line and it doesn't take my order. Not surprising given the negative feedback I read about them elsewhere on these boards.

    My question is can someone suggest a thin light weight replacement grip hopefully no thicker than 1.3 mm? I tried 3 overgrips and that was still a bit harsh. The thin leather grips are way too heavy.

    Babolat Skin Feel grip is supposed to be really thin.

    If you search the TW blog you can find a little blurb that Tiffani wrote about a few of the new thinner grips.

    I think she mentioned the Babolat Skin Feel and the Prince Resipro.

    You can also consider removing the grip and using 2 overgrips. I'm using a Gamma Supreme Overgrip as my base grip with my preferred overgrip, Super Grap, on top. I use the Gamma grip as the base bc I think it's a little thicker and more durable than other overgrips. I change the base grip once for every 2 times I change my top grip. I suppose if I played a lot this would be expensive. But I'm lucky if I play twice a week.

    If you go with the 2 overgrip set up, you will likely need to add some lead to the handle to make up for the change in balance.
