Let's Gather All Grip Specs (Weight & Thickness) Into One Thread
 
Hi All,

1. I've had this on my "To Do" list for several years now. We have grip specs (mass and thickness) info scattered all over the board in roughly 70-80 threads, dated all the way back to 2004. Seems like somebody is always asking what is the lightest, heaviest, or thinnest grip. I've gotten us started with my own records and by compiling info from most all posts on the topic. It would be cool if peeps could provide additional info when they get a chance. I will update everything to the big list when time permits.

2. Please feel free to provide any specs you have. If it's already been posted by somebody else, that's cool. That just serves as a much appreciated confirmation. If you have specs that differ from what has already been posted, that's awesome to have as well. I have a hunch there are manufacturing issues that account for those discrepancies.

3. Something that is really useful, (but missing from most conversations on the topic) is the length. Untrimmed grips can range by plus or minus 8 inches.That difference in length accounts for quite a bit of weight. With installed/trimmed grips, there are numerous variables at play, length and diameter of the pallet, tightness of the wrap, and the amount of overlap. Because all of those variables exist, noting the final trimmed length is extremely helpful.

This is a great addition. I don't know why this type of information is not published in one, easy-to-find place on the TW site, but I've never been able to find it.

I recently bought calipers to measure the actual thickness of the grips and overgrips that I use, and I'll write that up and send the data to you when I get a chance.

Thanks,

T.

Ooooh, Calipers. I love it when you talk sexy. Those digits would be awesome TNT34. Would be much appreciated by all I'm sure.

I've updated the big list, thanks! BTW guys, I have 3 Donnay Leather grips arriving on Saturday via the nice man driving the big brown truck. I will spec those out for everybody too. Not much avail info on those.

The weight discrepancy is just awful.....bought from the same retailer.

Somewhat amusingly, the cardboard packaging was pretty consistent in weight - 13.3g and 13.6g. That's Wilson 'QC' for you I guess.

I suppose you can at least weigh the whole package in the shop before buying them though....

Regarding calipers, is there a standard method for measuring as far as how much compression of the grip should occur? One could measure to "first contact" or continue to turn the caliper and compress the grip to some degree. How should we be doing it?

LOL and Yikers! It's not unusual for a whole tennis racquet to vary plus or minus 4 grams. But that's crazy for something so light (and so easily manufactured) as a replacement grip.

Torres 06-06-2013 02:03 PM

Wilson True Grip (all straight out of the packet, untrimmed)



The weights of the others were 22.7g, 23.2g, 23.4g, 25.4g, 25.5g (I bought loads of these to match a couple a sticks without having to use lead).

http://i1122.photobucket.com/albums/...ps3cb41c75.jpg

The carboard packaging weighed 14.1g, 14.1g, 14.2g, and 14.3g! (of the ones I weighed).

great idea. There was another thread that I would usually get some specs from but it keeps getting bumped down the page.

leather grip weight vs synthetic

Maybe post a list of links to useful threads...maybe.

corbind 06-06-2013 05:54 PM

Are we all gonna report in grams/mm or ounces/inches or do it both ways? The cut/installed figures should be more useful as well as have less variance.

Prince ResiPro Replacement Grip (EXO3 Tour stock grip)
CUT installed: 14.4 g (done in '12)
CUT installed: 15.0 g (done 6-6-13) and is 42.25" in length

Wilson Shock Shield Hybrid
UNCUT: 27.2 g (0.96 oz)
CUT installed: 24.2 g (0.85 oz)
Thickness = 2.0 mm (eyeballed with ruler on thickest side)

Wilson Comfort Hybrid
UNCUT: ?
CUT installed: 10.4 g (0.37 oz)
Thickness = 2.5 mm (eyeballed with ruler on thickest side)
