I just got back from a short ride with the new wraps. It performed beyond my expectations. The feel was good. Firm enough to feel the road response but completely devoid of vibration. I have big hands so this works well for me. However, it should be noted that for long rides spreading the weight on your hand out over a larger area decreases pain in the hand caused from pressure on the nerve. This had been validated by research.
I'll go get my digital camera and take a snapshot.
Here is a snapshot of the wrap. The picture didn't turn out to good because I didn't take the time to adjust the camera just right but you get the idea. The old grips are just temporarily duct taped on but with riding gloves they seem to be just fine. Looks are not the best but if the ends were finished better the wrap looks just fine.
By the way the campany who makes this particular weatherstripping is called M-D Building Products, Inc. Oklahoma City, OK.
The nice thing about this stuff is that it stretches really well as you wrap it so you can kind of adjust the thickness and density to some degree by how tight you pull the wrap.
