There are other leathers on the market that are 0.8mm, but that's just way too thin.

My only concern is, after the grip gets compressed with time, that a 4-1/4 will feel too small. Og's compress within 1/2 an hour.

Planning on gripping the 98d up with a wilson pro-hybrid grip (weighs as much as wilson leather). Maybe if I get a 4-3/8's, wrap it tight, after a couple of days it will have compressed to 'normal' wilson size 3.
I lika to do da cha-cha
