BE CAREFUL WHEN CHANGING YOUR GRIP!
I have seen far too many folks jack their sensor when trying to replace. It's not hard to change your tape, but it's easy to screw it up if you don't know what you are doing.

Personally I agree with you, a heavier grip tape like vicious or TFL Grip makes a WORLD of difference.
P.S. That red Vicious looks dope!
