Cushioned, but not thick replacement grip
 
I know that as a general rule (except leather), thicker replacement grips generally have more cushioning and thinner replacement grips less. However, I can't go thicker with my current racquet, but am looking for a nicely cushioned replacement grip. I plan on putting a yonex super grap on top, so actual tackiness isn't too important for me.

In short, what is a below average thickness, but well cushioned replacement grip?

Thanks

Among regular/normal grips, Volkl DNX is very thin. It will provide more cushioning than the official "thin" grips, but is thiner than most other regular grips.

Babolat Skin Feel.

Thanks for the replies!
 
Customer Review of Volkl DNX say that it is not thin but thick?

How is the cushioning on Babolat Skin Feel and Prince Resi Thin? I have known of these as very thin grips, but also relatively firm.

Judging from the customer reviews of Resi-Pro, it seems like it may be a great option.

Gosen Sorbothane Grip. 1 mm thick.

Discontinued but not impossible to find.

Three grips mentioned here I've tried, all about the same thickness.

Cushion: resithin > dnx > skinfeel

Tack: skin > dnx >> resi

Texture: dnx > resi > skin

Slippery when wet: resi >>> dnx > skin

Let me clarify: When I say I want a thin grip, I'm basically looking for just slightly thinner than average. I'm looking to add an overgrip and only slightly increase the size. A 1 mm thick grip seems like it would decrease the size of the grip, even with an overgrip.

Assuming I'm adding an overgrip, would any of these have any affect other than cushioning? Would any of these wear down with an overgrip on top?
