In the end, what did you do with the tecnifibre grips? Does the new model still look bad to you?An update regarding Tecnifibre leather gripS
I was satisfied with the one I bought (see my last post), so I bought another one (but on a different site this time), to my surprise it's different, actually totally different.
There seems to be 2 types of Tecnifibre leather grips, you can tell the difference by the packaging:
The first one I bought which I'm guessing is the "older" version, the specs for it are listed in my previous post:
The "new" one:
Specs for the new one:
Weight (trimmed for L3): 18g (felt incredibly light for a leather grip)
Did not feel as connected to the racket as the other Tecnifibre leather grip, quality felt a bit cheap
Below is a picture of the two side by side, the top one is the most recent one and the bottom one the "old" one:
Hopefully this clarifies the situation regarding the Tecnifibre grips

Oehms Retro 19 g
Any thoughts on how the Yonex leather compares to other leather grips? I’ve used the TW version and a fairway. The TW is fine with an overgrip but way too slick to play on its own. The fairway is actually great on its own— much more tack and a bit softer than the TW. The price point on the Yonex leather is high, and so I’m wondering how it compares to other premium grips.Some stats on a brand new Yonex AC221 Ultimum Leather grip...
Quoted thickness is 1.4mm, dont have calipers but that seems to be correct
Directly out of the package it was 27g
The paper backing for the adhesive is 2g and I trimmed a small 1g piece off to install it on my Yonex VCP HD 4 1/2 grip
Maybe tecnifibre x-tra full (2,1 mm)hey guys..
some of the lists at the thread start are a little old and outdated.. or some items are not available..
can someone please help with the thickest replacement grip available at the moment? tnx.
I would assume the Tourna XXL (Tourna Grip Original XXL Overgrip | Tennis Warehouse (tennis-warehouse.com) but its difficult to find in the EU.What's the longest, largest and thickest DRY overgrip in 2021?
I use them on my pure aero plus raquets. Very little left over after trimming.Has anyone installed a Kimony on a extended frame? I am afraid is too short.
107 cm sounds quite short, Wilson leather has 127 cm and is long enough, I had to trim it, but not like 20 cm.
I like how they feels and performs. Just very soft and stretchy when installing. And it won’t last as it absorbs everything quicker with the holes.I just received my Amazon order, and bought some Wilson Pro Perforated "Feel" Overgrips (12x package) instead of my normal Wilson Pro 'Comfort'. These have some little wholes one surface. Anyone can tell in how they feel different? 'Feel' could mean they are thinner ?
Is that the Absorb variant or comfort variant?The grip that comes installed on the Artengo TR960 Control Tour is 1.7 mm thick and weighs 18g.
It's not the Comfort, but I'm not 100% sure if it's the Absorb or the Tacky grip.Is that the Absorb variant or comfort variant?
Ahh yeah it's most likely the absorb because the tacky one for stock would be an extreme choice, thanks for the info.It's not the Comfort, but I'm not 100% sure if it's the Absorb or the Tacky grip.
Pretty sure it's the tacky. The absorb is too thick and heavy for a stock grip.Ahh yeah it's most likely the absorb because the tacky one for stock would be an extreme choice, thanks for the info.
Anyone measure the Prince ResiTex Tour thickness?
I saw someone here state the weight was 23g off a Prince Phantom!
