    ...... heavier than a wilson leather grip?

    I recently exchanged my wilson leather grips for some head leather grips and it added about 2more points to the head light balance.

    I wrap my leather pretty uniform, tight and a little further up on the handle than a normal grip would be wrapped... but 2 more head light points?

    By my rough calculations, the head grips would have a difference of about 8grams over the wilsons to raise my headlight balance by 2pts.--

    I rather like the head grip though-- now my PrestigeMids are 9pts. HL and feel more stable and solid.

    interesting. but could just be different thickness, or less padding, or less leather.
