Weight. Synthetic grips will be lighter, ranging from roughly 15 – 25 grams (.52 to .88 ounces), while leather grips will typically range from 20 – 30 grams ( .71 to 1.06 ounces). When you change grips, you’re going to influence the total weight and balance of your racquet. Although you might not do anything to counteract the change in balance, it’s good to be aware.
One last note: If you switch over to leather, expect your racquets to increase in weight about 10 grams, depending on the brand of grip and how it’s wrapped. Given the location of the weight change, you may also find that your racquet swings a bit more head-light through the air. For more on the latest gear and tennis technology, visit TENNIS.com.
