I just wrapped a PK 5G (4 1/2") grip with a 25 x 1.5 TW leather grip (overlap so the grip is flat) and it added a heft 28 grams to the static weight. I only had a 4" piece remaining.

If you want to preserve the true grip size of your racquet, go with the thicker leather grip. You can still feels the bevels really well!
Thanks for that... so TW's weight info is not accurate then...
