    I'm interested in gripping one of my rackets with a light weight but firm feeling synthetic grip. I have leather on one of my rackets, but want to grip my spare with a synthetic that feels fairly firm but is much lighter in weight than leather.

    I dont need to reduce grip size.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    The radical pro came with something called 'synthetic leather' and if you can find it as a replacement grip that would fit the bill.

    Head Synthetic Leather is IMO the firmest light grip.

    It weighs in at 17g un-trimmed and does feel just like leather.

    Can anyone tell me how firm is the Prince Resithin? compared to Wilson pro hybrid or Babolat Syntec?

    The ResiThin is still quite rubbery, its just thin, i would say it was particularly firm. I would say it was similar in firmness to Skin Feel.
