Yeah, the edwins are good. I haven't tried Longnecks yet, but I might when these wear out a little more.

I can only ride Edwins. I hate the Gary Young grips- they don't even feel soft.

I used to love the young grips but then i realised that they were wayyy too thin. Edwins wear down too quickly and therefore Longnecks take my vote

They are only $10 and not much of a hassle to put on... do you really have to complain at how fast they wear down? I think it's sheer laziness... which I happen to understand quite a bit.

The Gary Young grips are terrible. They are like Longnecks that have been chopped up. My longnecks took all of 2 days to wear off that like clear coat that makes them shinyish black and get soft and nice. Now they are really really soft and aren't wearing down at all really...

Edwins feel nice, 2 of my freinds have them.

I love my edwins besides the fact that you will have black all over your hands just from touching them. They also don't fair too well if your hands are wet/sweaty.

Edit: After not riding for so long and my hands getting rid of all of the callouses (sp), I wouldn't mind some gloves.

i have/had edwins and they wore down too fast for me. I also had the fit ribbed grips and those wore down in a week.

the grips im going to be getting are the ruben grips. The main reason is I only wear down my left grip so i can just buy singles.

3.)Edwin grips& ODI longnecks
4.)S&M grips they wear down and are thin but are still comfertable(sp?)
5.)double sided tape with gloves(it works)

right now i ride one white ruben grip, one black demolition missle grip (don't ask why)

No one will ever ride double sided tape with gloves. Not only do your hands stick to the tape, but so does dirt and everything else you can think of and then won't have any grip at all... and it's just not comfortable.

I hate to break it to you, but Ruben grips are pretty much the same as the Edwins and longnecks, except the mushroom things are cut up. They are just as soft.
