Thicker replacement grips (like Wilson Cushion-Aire Sponge)
I always buy the Wilson Cushion-Aire Sponge, but I wonder if there are other alternatives I should be considering. I don't want anything that will reduce the grip size. Anybody have a recommendation for a similar but better non-leather replacement grip?

The Babolat Air Sphere would be a contender I think.

Looks cool, but man that's heavy.

REsearching this a bit, too, since I might want to use a thicker grip on my Pure Drive. Prince Durasoft looks like it could be a candidate, too.

Prince DuraSoft grip is soft, tacky, and thick. Excellent grip to consider.

I tried a few Babolat "soft" grips -- but they were just too soft and too puffy.
The closest thing to Wilson air sponge I've seen was the Kirschbaum grip. Kirschbaum is just a tad softer, and has a smooth uniform surface, which I like. I rank both the Wilson AirSponge and Kirschbaum as "medium soft". They are just the right softness for me.

How does the Wilson Cushion-Aire Sponge compare to the Wilson Shock Shield grip in terms of shock reduction and weight? Does anyone know?
