Big hands/ Fat Grips

I have big paws and have a hard time with finding a set of big grips. What do all you other big handed guys use ?? Im kinda tired of Kuryakyn and looking for a change.

I can't stand skinny grips (i.e. stock) so I went to Arlen Ness Deep Cut Comfort Grips. They are very stout, look great and are very comfortable for long hauls. The padded "bars" aren't too squishy and don't absorb sweat.

They also come in chrome and black.

Take a look at Avon grips. Some of them come in 3 different sizes. The memory foam is really comfortable!!

I have these, except in small. The small are the same diameter as stock, 1.375" diamater. I wear a size 10 glove, but prefer a smaller grip. You will probably be happy with the large, fat grips which are 1.625" in diameter:

Memory Foam Anodized - Large

The memory foam is great. It is not like old style foam at all.
