On the downside, every grip I bought had some blemishes along the sides that made it look sloppy. However, since I use an overgrip, this cosmetic flaw is not a big deal for me.

It does seem to improve comfort and shock in exchange for a slightly muted feel, but I have a Pro Kennex Kinetic frame. I think the Pure Drive will be more harsh no matter what grip you put on it, but if you have soft strings and a well cushioned grip, it might not be that bad.
How long did it take for it to shrink down to size ? if it shrinks too fast, i have problem with that.
