After some testing, my initial findings are that Wilson Shock Shield replacement grip is better than regular grips at absorbing shock, but not as good as Unequal Kevlar (even the medium version).
But it has easy installation, normal looks, lower price, and lower weight going in its favor.
So it's really a toss up. Do you want more shock absorption? Go with Kevlar. Do you want moderate shock absorption, a better feel and everything else? Go with Wilson.
Now I don't have the two grips installed on the same type of frames, so my conclusions are not all that fair.
If I change my mind, I will be sure to re-visit this thread and make necessary corrections.
