I normally ALWAYS change the stock synthetic grips to Babolat Leather grips, when I buy new racquets, but when I got my new BLX 6.1 18X20 racquets, I heard they came with a hybrid of leather and synthetic with a cotton layer in between and had to test them out.

I chose to keep them, because they made the racquet feel soft, but I still was able to feel the bevels in the handle and I get better protection against TE/GE trouble from this soft leather-synth hybrid grip.

I still use leather grips under an overgrip on my Babolat and Völkl racquets though, but most likely will keep using the Pro Hybrid leather-synth grips on the BLX racquets, of course with an overgrip on top of that........
