    Or maybe Fairway, Volkl?

    I ask this because I wanna build up my grip without losing the bevels.

    from my experience, of the 3 you listed the gamma is the thickest. babolat probably the thinnest. i found when i put the gamma leather grip on it really rounded the bevels of my racquet. it was a little too thick and stiff for my liking. i have babolat leather installed on all my other racquets and really like it. you can really keep the feel of the bevels with the bab leather.

    another good leather grip, if you can get them easily, is the vantage leather. very nice and tacky.

    Thanks, Richie.

    Have you tried Volkl and Prince leather grips?

    tried the volkl a couple years ago and they were good as well. i actually started using the babolat leather when i couldn't get volkl leather any more.

    never tried prince leather - haven't seen them for sale anywhere.
