I find this amazing considering that this season I have been playing using the stock grips (Wilson Micro-Dry Touch) for months, hours at a time with no blisters.
Also, three fingers of my racquet hand felt a little numb, though this went away after several more more days of playing. I think I am going to go back to the Wilson Micro-Dry Touch grips. They provide nice cusioning, very good tackiness, fairly good feel for the bevels, good ridges and valleys, and no blisters.
Is leather worth it?
Well it depends on what u want. If you like the feel of leather and the bevels of the grip then its the best grip out there. Most people use leather as their basegrip and stuff a overgrip over it (thats why overgrips exist
). IF you arent planning to use an overgrip then sync grips are much better.
If you looking for a thick, good quality leather i'll suggest the TW leather the 1.5mm thickness and 22mm wide but only IF ur gonna use a overgrip.
(ITS PROPER LEATHERRRRR) =)
