Pacific, dunlop, or babolat leather grip?
 
I cant decide which one i should get all three of the weights are fine and looks good but i wanna know if its durable and messes up the grip size any and if its soft or hard.

I only use the Wilson leather. Its 1.8mm so about the same as standard synth grips, weighs about 22g so the extra weight in the handle is minimal.

Hope that helps.

I used Pacific (brown) and had no problem at all. Very durable and weights about 24g. Also is the only calfskin out of the three.

Which racquet did you use it on? I have Pacific Pro Leather grips that I have not used yet. By chance, do you have Pacific racquets with the Master's Classic grips and replaced them with the Pro Leather Grips? If so, I would appreciate your feedback/comparison. Thanks!

I used the same one that you have on the Yonex rdis 300. I always used them with overgrip but you can feel the bevels, at least with this racquet. If you already have it, just put it on. To me leather is leather and the calluses will be there lol..

I've tried the Head, Dunlop, and Gamma. The Head and Dunlop are nice (very different shades of brown though), the Gamma seems inferior. No idea about the Pacific or Babolat.

I've used many Babolat leather grips over the years and been very happy.

Head leather works great too
