    Thanks for the tip! I may give those a try or maybe the Technifibre ATP X-TRA Full. Both seem thick and relatively light.

    I use an odd combo of grips at the moment, but they work great with my set-up. Primary grip is the stock Babolat Uptake white, covered by a Wilson Pro replacement grip black, and finished off with TournaBlue overgrip. It pretty much changed my grip size from 4 3/8" to 4 1/2" and is still surprisingly firm considering they're wrapped super tight. I get a solid handle on the racquet and it doesn't slip when I'm hitting shots on the move or changing my grip for different shots.

    Removed Fairway Leather grip from my Wilson Pro Open, came in at 20g with the finishing tape, most of the double sided tape was still on the handle when removed
