Synthetic Grip as heavy as Stock Leather?
 
Anyone know some heavy synthetic grips? I was going to try to not use an overgrip. I didnt want to change the balance too much? Thanks I use the K90 by the way.

Oh and I didnt want to have to use lead. Thanks

Wilson Shock Shield weighs as much as leather.

I can second this. I think I lost only 2 grams on a racquet that I changed from a leather grip to a Shock Shield. It's a comfy grip too.

TW says their branded leather grips are in the 28g to 32g range. Here are synthetic grips I've used (Shock Shield comes closest):

Dunlop Hydramax Tour (white) 21g / 0.75 oz
Wilson Cushion Air Contour 20g / 0.70 oz
Wilson Shock Shield Hybrid 27g / 0.95 oz
Wilson K (Kontrol) Grip 18g / 0.65 oz
