How much padding do you like? I like ODI's...I prefer thin grips, so I use Ruffians and Yetis, but they also make Rogues if you like thick grips. IMO, the Yetis have a better feel to them, but the Ruffians fit my small hands a little better, so it's a toss up for me. They seem pretty durable...the rubber keeps its tackiness and all. I stripped the bolt on one of the collars, but I'm pretty sure that was just me being stupid. I've also ripped up the sides of their dual-density grips, but no such problem with the lock-on since it was the density that doesn't appear on the lock-on.
Lizard Skins Peaty looks like it might be interesting. I have no experience, but if anyone does, I'd love to hear what you think of them. Another one that I haven't seen in person but would love to hear opinions on is the Sunline grips with the mini-flange. More specifically, their Half-Waffle...how tacky is it, and how does it compare to the Yeti and Ruffian in terms of thickness?
