    Wilson Pro Overgrip is one of the thinnest I have used.

    Babolat Gripsy, aka VS Grip. Even thinner than Wilson/Yonex....and utter devotion to it might make you eligible for the Babolat Alliance!

    If the guy above me is refereing to the Babolat VS Original grip -than yes I think he is right (.44mm). I use it and like it very much, only problem is that with use it does loose its tackyness, but I have never had tearing or flaking problems that some people have posted.

    I love the feel of the Babolat. I actually think it's much improved over when it was known as Gripsy. That stuff flaked.

    Are you talking about Kirschbaum Touch It Ultra Thin Overgrip? On the TW website it looks like it only comes in a pack of 1 grip? Do you like it?

    Wilson is thin, but Babs VS is thinner. I love it, but it constantly shifts on my Babolat leather grips, and with my OCD, have to go with Tourna in the summer and Wilson Pro in the fall, winter, and spring.

    That's so true; the Gamma Grip2 is possibly the thinnest over grip.

    I believe Wilson Pro & Yonex Supergrap are around .70mm. Babolat VS is .44mm. Anyone that likes Wilson Pro but looking at going thinner should take a look at Weiss Cannon Mystery grip. It is very similar to the Wilson but very thin around .50mm.

    I can't believe how thin Wilson Pro is. I usually use Tourna because I sweat so much, but I'll use Wilson Pro from time to time when indoors or when the weather is cool. Even if I don't overlap Tourna so much and stretch it so it's not so thick, Wilson Pro feel much thinner, a half of a grip size smaller. Very noticeable. A good overgrip to use if you always use overgrip, but think your grip size is too big.

    i went from head control to wilson pro to bab vs and i think im sticking with the vs over grip. i like the feel of it better than the wilson. But my favorite was the head control for the feel but i cant find any of them any more with the three blue rolls and agassi on it. But when i ordered my racket they screwed it up and because of the place i ordered froms screw up they sent me two packs of vs over grip and now ill never use anything else its my new favorite. But back to the point. i found vs to be much thinner than wilson pro which was still really thin.

    The aforementioned Kirschbaum Touch It Ultra Thin overgrip is 0.38mm.

    They're also three bucks EACH.
