    Yes, I think that thicker grips will forgive more technical defecits.
    The thinner your grip is, the better the technique should be.
    That's what I think.
    Of course - every player should play with a thick or thin grip that he likes.
    But nearly every high level player plays with a thin than a thick grip.

    I like thick grips. They prevent blisters and are comfy xD

    For those that are still puzzled BUT greatly disturbed by their grip ... try the following GENERAL combinations and choose the the one you feel and play BEST ... that will be the BEST GRIP for you and your game !!

    1) Assuming you still have the ORIGINAL factory grip on your racquet - 1st combi - original + overgrip

    2) 2nd combi - original + 2 layers of overgrip

    3) If you have stripped down to BARE WOOD, recommend you cover it as a BASE layer with ELECTRICAL TAPE, to prevent "sweat damage" on the wood.

    3rd combi - replacement grip

    4th combi - replacement grip + one overgrip

    5th combi - replacement grip + 2 overgrip

    There are other "stranger" combi (eg 2 replacement grips), but the gist of the idea is to approach the selection process methodically Note, ONLY you can decide what WORKS BEST for yourself.

    Personally, I tried all the above combis using a Karakal PU Supergrip (Black) and Yonex 102EX SuperGrap (lightly wound) and found that combi no. 4 is the best for me.

    You could also use just an over grip on bare wood.

    True, I tried that too before combi no.3 (using Karakal replacement grip) but found it way too "tough" for me ... reminded me when I was 5-6 years old playing using the old wooden "Gold Cup" racket back in the 70s !!

    Please note that most of the combis that I suggested are meant for RECREATIONAL (and beginners) players who play for fun, to get fit and to enjoy the game.

    For the uber-competitive and tournament players, I am sure you know what type of grip you like !!

    I take off the original grip and put some pre-wrap tape on the wood before putting grip on. I've found that it cushions the grip so the wood doesn't push too hard on my hand

    This is a very good advice!!
    My mate only use one Yonex SuperGrap102 on the bare wood and during a match, the wood grip brokes into pieces!!
    (It wasn't a cheap racket - Victor Total Inside Wave 6500) Maybe the sweat-theory could be a reason?
    He complained it in the shop and he got a new one, but this was scary...

    Old Price was about 189,00€ - currently 89,00€ - 129,00€. It's in the sell-out.
    Here is one link to a german online shop (a quite expensive shop)

    Thick grips feel very uncomfortable to me. I could not change the grips well and it feels like a tin of coke. I use overgrip direct on bare wood or for sweaty days a thin layer of selfmade towelgrip. This works for me best.

    offtopic

    speedyJT, you are from germany, too. Gruss aus Bochum.

    I have to use a thick grip due to the size of my hand - I find it very uncomfortable to use a thin grip with a G4/G5 Yonex. My current preference is Ashaway softgrip.

    To be honest, I think the matter whether it's thick or thin entirely depends on your preference. Some people find thicker grip to give them more control, comfort, etc. But then I found it to have the opposite effect for me, my wrist manipulation goes out of the window even when my grip is 0.2mm thicker than the usual, so thin it is for me

    Just use the one that is the most comfortable with your style of play, there is no exact boundaries on which is the best grip to use

    Instead of Thick and Thin.

    I'd be more concern on how grippy it is.

    Personally, I like my grip to be soft and slightly thick. For me, it's a lot easier to clench that way.
