Giving a shout out to Gamma Hi-Tech grip
 
Years ago, I had some frames that had their original grips replaced with Gamma Hi-Tech. I always liked them and never used overgrips. The durability of the Hi-Tech was outrageous and would last at least a year, if not more. But since then, I've gone to a leather grip with an overgrip on my frames. I've been happy to replace the overgrip every couple of matches at the cost of around a buck per grip. But in all honesty, it would cost me a good chunk of change every month to continually replace overgrips.

Just recently, I purchased a used racquet and the original owner had replaced the grip with a Gamma Hi-Tech. Wow, I had forgotten how great this grip was! No need for overgrip -- this thing doesn't get slippery and it doesn't cause blisters. It's just a solid grip with great feel and does not slip.

At $4.25 per grip, you can easily use this for an entire season without wearing it out or seeing any drop in performance. Compare that to a typical $4+ for a 3-pack of overgrips that end up being replaced every couple of days and the cost savings is considerable.

Anyway, I was pretty excited to re-discover this grip and I doubt I'll ever go back to leather + overgrip again. Kudos to Gamma for offering such a high-quality replacement grip at a reasonable price.

Couldn't agree more. People on this forum turned me on to Gamma Hi-tech grips some time ago. It is an amazing combination of durability, grip, and "thinness" to help you really feel the bevels. I don't see myself using anything else.

The best part about the grip is that it's got the same sticky feel as an overgrip, except without the added thickness of actually adding an overgrip. Plus, you don't have to replace it every week. The cost of overgrips can add up quickly if you play a lot. I'll bet some people spend $20+ every month on overgrips if they play competitively. I'd guess that one Hi-Tech grip would last longer than that for less than $5.

This is the grip I'm talking about:

The reviews don't lie.

Does this have good shock absorbing features ? and does it have any issues with shrinking over time or becoming smaller due to gel compressing down ?

It's pretty firm, maybe about the same as leather+overgrip. It doesn't compress at all in my experience.
