    I hated this grip, after it squished down I started getting finger and hand pain, I switched back to leather and now my hand is fine

    I find it not too bad. I'm using it on my nBlade 98 (used to use Kontrol Grip) and it feels pretty good. I've had it for about a month and hasn't changed much over time.

    However, I believe that it can cause blisters and calluses when over used. Maybe next I'll try the Performance Hybrid, to make sure its not the Polyurethane outer layer causing the problems...

    I have these on my BLX95's and they aren't as harsh as most other full leather grips. I usually prefer a soft synthetic grip, so I might change out after trying more.

    I did also try the Hybrid Performance and wasn't crazy about thet. It has a bit of a "countoured" feel, instead of flat.

    It's okay, but feels a little on the soft side if you want that true leather grip feel...

    I found it too soft if you like a true leather grip feel and too firm if you like a soft synthetic feel.

    I put one on an old racquet at request and I too though it felt fairly soft and for lack of better words, "squishy"...

    Are you sure you tried the "Hybrid Pro" and not the "comfort" or "performance"? I would never call the Pro squishy.
