Wilson Flip Grip >= Wilson Profile Grip?
I started using the Wilson Flip Grip recently. It's a double sided overgrip and I use the tacky side.
Question: is the Wilson Profile Grip more tacky and is it as thin/thinner than the flip grip? (Note: PROFILE, not PRO, which I don't find as nice).
I like the flip grip because the cushion is a nice comfortable amount for me (not too thick, but enough to be comfortable).
It's one of the most tacky grips I've tried so far. Which is good.
I don't sweat a lot so sweat absorption is not a factor I look for. And as long as it can last 12-15 hours (which most grips I use do) I'm fine with durability. So that's not a factor for me either.
I ask because:
- I'm hoping to find an even tackier grip and so far I like Wilson out of the 6 or 7 brands I've tried.
- I can't easily get the Profile grip and the colour I want (Red) here, I have to order and to make it worth while I need to order quite a few. Thus I'd have to figure out if it's close, or better than the flip-grip before I unload and stock up on it.
- don't see any other reviews on this forum about either grip.
Thanks for your help!

If anyone is interested, I can give a comparison now.
Finally got to try the two (turns out I had a whole pack in my other bag!!! lol).
Flip Grip is definitely more tacky despite the Profile Grip sporting treads. Flip Grip also provides more cushion.
Durability seems similar (though because there isn't as much tack to begin with, you might say the Profile Grip changes less as it wears).
