Lightest Replacement grips
 
I currently have a PDR 2012 with the skin feel grip and an over grip. I am looking to slightly increase the grip size. But I want to keep the weight down in the handle. I like the heavier weight towards the top of the racket. Any ideas in lighter grips that are not to thick?

The Gamma RZR Dri grip only added 2g to my racquet. The stock grip was the Dunlop Gecko Tac. The RZR Dri is the same thickness and is soft feeling, firm, and on the rubbery side. Medium tac and perforated. I'm not using an overgrip.

#Muppet, Sounds great.

Anyone else have any feedback?

From my experience, the stock grips on Yonex and Donnay racquets are the lightest replacement grips commonly available. They both weigh around 10 grams installed. Others that are between 12 and 14 grams include Prince ResiThin, Volkl DNX, Bab SkinFeel. I think there are some more light ones, but these are the ones I remember. There are several threads on this topic so you might want to run a search.

I find site-specific Google searches to be a little more effective than TT's search function. I would try: "lightest replacement grip" site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com

ChicagoJack made a "research" about it:

Thanks for the help. I'll give it a shot. I am experimenting in keeping my racket in a comfortable weight and balance.
