Wilson Leather vs Prince Leather - What's your preference
 
Has anyone tried both or either of these grips and do you have a preference in terms of quality and feel?

Did you feel one was better than the other and if so, what was it your preferred.

I have researched the thickness of these two, Prince comes in at 1.5mm and according to the Wilson website, the Wilson leather comes in at 1.6mm, so not much difference in the way of thickness, but I just wondered what your thoughts were in terms of quality and feel once wrapped?

Many thanks

I have now tried both and I do not agree with Prince's measurements.

The Wilson grip is supposed to be 1.6mm thick and the Prince 1.5mm, but the Prince feels much thicker. Uncut it is shorter than the Wilson and weighs 31g compared to the uncut longer Wilson at 24g.

The Wilson also wraps much better and easier and feels nicer.

My choice is Wilson by a long way.
