I found that having the right handlebar was much more important than picking the right grip. For me, a swept back bar put my wrists at a more natural angle which reduced numbness. I ended up using a Bontrager Race Lite "Big Sweep" handlebar that swept back 12-degrees. Seems like they've been difficult to find, but there are similar bars available from Origin-8, On One, and Psyclestore among others.
As far as grips, I just use standard ODI lock-on grips in either the Ruffian or Rogue pattern. Ruffian is low-profile, Rogue a bit more cushy.
