    Hey! I am currently using a L3 (4 3/8) Wilson nBlade with Wilsons Truegrip and Wilson Pro Overgrip ontop. Im finding the setup just a little bit too small. A L4 grip would be too big but I was wondering if a leathergrip instead of the truegrip would bring up the size somewhat?

    Conclusion are Wilson Leather grips, or any other brand, thicker then the Truegrip?

    Cheers!

    Leather grips usually run a bit smaller than synthetic grips. I feel the True grip is thicker than the leather I have used.

    Okies, thanks for sharing. Maybe I should look into a thicker overgrip then wilson then.

    leather grips are traditionally THICKER than synthetic grips.

    the wilson leather is something like 1.22mm and the true grip is around .88mm

    Volkl leather is thicker than wilson and babolat leathers. It's a noticible difference, so you might want to check that out. Unfortunately they don't have them at TW but other stores do.

    Really? I have tended to notice the exact opposite.

    I beg to differ. I find the leather to be thicker.
