    Gamma Grip 2 (0.40 mm) and Babolat VS (0.44 mm) are advertised as the thinnest (based on their claims and specs).

    If you search via "tilte only" there are more 10 threads with the exact same title.

    Anyway, Laserfibre tourfit is the thinnest replacement grip and Kirschbaum Touch is the thinnest overgrip (0.38mm!) ;)

    BTW Laserfibre tourfit is out of stock indefinitely according to TW. So I'm interested to know what other thin replacement grips are out there?

    TW leather thin

    or just wrap a couple of overgrips over it

    depending on how you want the racquet balanced

    are you suggesting TW leather is thinner than most synthetic replacement grips? always thought leather will be thicker. I will try them out if thats the case.

    no... leather in general is always thinner than synthetic... thats why most pros use leather..keeps the bevels better and its heavier

    you can probably contact Laserfibre directly and get an order from them. The grip is very very thin, but can also maybe throw off your balance, since it is quite a bit thinner than general grips.

    IMO leather is thicker... harder too, wont compress like synthetics.
