The biggest gain actually was with the continental grip. It's much more stable on volleys. I also prefer serving with it.

Replacing a regular grip to add the ww + overgrip nets 10-12g to the racquet and makes it a bit more headlight.

Main negative is that I have to take 2-3 racquets everytime b/c I can't borrow someone else's racquet if I break a string. Of course, it also keeps people from borrowing your racquet.
