Thumb grips tend to wear down. Once you have worn down the leather you should have the grip replaced. I have seen lots of nice bows that have a large indent in the stick which could have easily been prevented by changing the thumb grip before it's too late.

* The price of the wrapping or grip is while the bow is being rehaired, it may be a little extra if you do not get your bow rehaired at the same time.
The imitation whale bone wrapping is lighter and a little thicker than silver or plated wire wrapping. If you like the current balance and feel of the bow, it might be better to use the silver wrapping. If you want it a little lighter you could use the immitation whale bone wrap.
