I rather like my new DMR Death grips. Super soft race edition, thin. End caps feel like they have a durable plastic plug under the rubber, not worried about it. 

I prefer them over the very good Macaskills they replaced. Grippier and softer.

I'd like to see a face off of the Deathgrips and ODI Flows. Maybe I'll pick up some Flows and spend 5 seconds testing each...

I have disproportionately large ape hands and prefer thinner grips.

Was running some ODI Elite Pros lately, (same as Flows but with palm padding on front).

Along with DMR Deathgrips these are generally reviewed as best grips on the market. I'd concur with a double shaka rating for both 🤙🤙.

One thing with the ODI is you effectively lose 10mm bar width on each end due to the flange. Palm padding doesn't perceptively affect grip thickness. Compound is soft, though harder than DMR race compound.

Both great, but for my 780 bars I prefer the DMR's. Also, maybe better for carbon bars since the the DMR's are hammered on and stay in place with less reliance on the clamp. Just finished my 2nd pair of DMR's. Next pair for longevity I'm going for soft compound rather than race.
