Which Tech Spec Tank Grips

I'm going to buy some Tech Spec tank grips. Anyone have experience with the different materials - High Fusion, C3, Snake Skin? I'm leaning towards the High Fusion because it is the thinest, but I would appreciate any opinions.

I have snake skin as well, and love their extra thickness when I have to really squeeze the tank.

snake skin, the extra padding allows you to really sink your knees into them when needed.

and they look badass.

Contact username "nelson", I think he has had every single type they make on his bike. They use his bike for pictures and testing.

Riding the bike only on the street? What type of pants are you wearing?

SnakeSkin (track/street use) Some people have complained about wear on their textile pants, however no issues on leather like you will see with StompGrip. SnakeSkin is similar to a dense rubber.

C3 (street use) These work best with textile pants and have more of a soft foam feel to them.

I have not tried the High Fusion yet.

I have the C3 (Moss cut) and while they do a good job, they aren't very "black." The snakeskin ones are a darker black, which I like purely for aesthetic reasons. I'm acually now looking at getting some HT Moto ones. They're sending me some color samples in the mail for free.

Here's a look at my TechSpecs:

2014 Audi A5 - Scuba Blue

I never liked the look of the Snakeskin type, so I went with High Fusion in black on my D675.

No complaints at all, track or street.

I have Snake Skin. No issue with my Dragon jeans on street use. Will be testing the leathers out this weekend but I see no problem there. Much better feel then the stomps as well
