So do combat this hand pain, does anyone have any suggestions or should I try one of these shock shield grips as opposed to the firm leather?
Oh yes, it absorbs shock quite well, due to its mass if not gel elasticity. I'm using it constantly. And like I said, at $3.50 per grip (white ones are on sale) you don't have to wait until it compresses.
