    I just replaced the original grip on my Yonex RD-7 with a Gamma Hi Tech replacement grip and it's way too fat now. I noticed the original Yonex grip was very, very thin. What is the thinnest replacement grip around that I can put on it?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hopefully someone will answer you. I asked this question weeks ago and never got a reply.

    I've answered this three times on the old forum and once on the new one. Head Comfortac or Softac with the colored strip removed.

    Yup, Softac is probably the thinnest avaiable now. Gamma used to have one called Pro Lite, which was really really thin. I think Unqiue also have thin perforated replacement grip, but I forget what it is. Hope it help.

    Wilson TL gel is thin. I use it on my 2001 Babolat PCs to make them true to size since the factory made the grips slightly big. TL gel is a nice thin grip that feels firm and comfortable at the same time. HTH.

    Please ask Yonex sales rep. whether they sell the synthetic replacement grip -product number "AC112L"in US.

    AC112L is the number in Japan.Yonex sell saying "AC112L" has a professional and direct feeling in Japan.

    Kirschbaum has the thinnest grip that I know of, it's only .035 thick and is absolutely the best. It's called "touch it" and i have no idea why TW won't carry it. You can get it from a place in NYC

    I just reshaped a grip and needed something really thin to finish the job - the Prince Duratred overgrip is essentially the same material as a grip but of course much thinner, works very well.
