Recently tried this one as my beloved True Grip seems to be on the exit. Not bad at all, but almost twice the weight. It is in fact almost as heavy as leather, my leather grip weighed about 1 oz, Wilson Shock Shield about 0.9 oz, Wilson True was 0.7 oz (no longer on TW, but still at competitors). Wilson Comfort Hybrid is the lightest and tackiest, yet thickest, of the four, at 0.45 oz.

Best bevel feel is Wilson Shock Shield. If you pull it tightly it doesn't add grip size or feel spongy at all, giving a bevel feel that rivals straight leather. Very solid grip with average tack and mediocre sweat absorption, but amazing ball feel and comfort.
