The Longnecks are great but the mushroom can make them feel thinner once you clamp your hand around them. I haven’t ridden the Renthals to compare but they may get too thin? BUT. That thinness comes with the mushroom padding your hand, so it would feel different.  Another favourite of mine was the ODI “O” grip. Quite thin but the alternating mushroom pattern was very comfortable. That was my grip of choice in my BMX days and I’d like to go back to it on my MTB (dirt jumper). But I fear it would be on the thin side for my trail bike. It’s thinner than the Longneck but the alternating mushroom provides easier grip. I find the Longneck, gloveless, can get a bit slippery because all of the ridges run the same way.
