Asking for opinions on any contact point (grip, saddle, pedal, etc) is right up there with opinions on underwear. I might love my rip away mankinis, but you may be more of a boxer brief type (boring). It will take you many years and many callouses to figure out what grips (g-strings?) are most comfortable, durable, grippy or whatever you are most concerned with. FWIW (not much) I have been thoroughly pleased with DMR Death Grips (thick) over the last several years.
