Really, really thin replacement grip?

I've recently switched racquets from the Dunlop 200g to the Yonex RDS 001 after using the Dunlop for soooooo long.

I'm loving the Yonex, but it's grip size seems bigger than my Dunlop (they are both 4 3/8). Someone told me the black grip on the Yonex is already ultra-thin, but I am hoping I can find something even thinner to use. I apply Tournagrip after which I have to use.

Can anyone recommend any super, super thin replacement grips? (Not overgrips).

I think your only option would be to replace the grip with an over grip, but not one of the white ones. ONe of the leather or fabric ones.

Ya, someone told me to try 2 Tournagrips.

I am getting some Laserfibre TwoTone replacement grips to try tomorrow and if they don't work I will try 2 overgrips.

why dont you shave the grip using a plane sander and drop it a size then use a more cushy grip

That will ruin a lot of newer racquets since shaving the graphite will really fuck it up. I'll check what's under my racquet, but I'm pretty sure that mostly only works well with older racquets.

Thanks!
