Thanks.
I just put a TW Private label leather grip on my K95. The grip was the "25mm x 1300mm x 1.3mm" size. The racquet, unstrung, with the original Wilson TrueGrip, was 328 grams. The weight with no grip was 310 grams. With the TW Leather grip (trimmed), it was 330 grams. With a Supergrap (trimmed), it was 334 grams. So, from my calculations:

Wilson TrueGrip (Trimmed): 20g
TW Private Label Thin and Wide 1.3mm/25mm (Trimmed): 22g
Yonex Super Grap (Trimmed): 4g

As a side note, stringing the racquet with NRG2 17 (18x20 string pattern) at 60lbs added 16 grams for a total of 350 grams.

I'd be interested to know what the weight of the 1.5mm "thick" version of the TW Leather grip is.
