    A poster said replacing the Stock Wilson Juice Pro grip with a Gamma Hi Tec would reduce the weight by 10 grams. Sounds like a lot to me. Anyone ever weighed any grips? I am trying to get the JP managable for me.

    You probably know this, but shaving ten grams off your grip will have practically no effect on swingweight, just on static weight...

    I suspected right then - you had too many posts to not know this:)

    Sounds like a lot to me too. Take a look at this thread:

    I was thinking the Resi Thin or Skin Feel grips would reduce static weight, but only by 4-6 grams. And the apparent SW may go up

    Lighter handle, more apparent swing weight.
