Grip Preferences. Renthal vs Driven Gel

Hey guys.

I've got a set of used 50mm Renthal clipons coming my way, and wanted to find out what grips everyone uses on the track.

Looking for something nicer that stock, which is what i'm running on my OEM clipons now.

Renthal (Soft, Medium, Hard)
Renthal Dual Comp
Driven Gel
Other?


Thoughts?

Standard meaning Medium compound?

^I have the Driven Diamond grips, which is their standard one and only sold in 1 compound, i'd say they're similar to a medium though.

Thinking of going with the medium Driven gels.

Yes/No?

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.
