I'm looking to make my grip larger without having multiple overgrips to wrap it and losing the original shape. Previously, I saw to TW a shrink rubber grip that can be slipped on to the wooden grip and with heat, the rubber grip will shrink to the grip, enlarging it. Anyone seen this and know where I can purchase it? Any other alternative suggestions is most welcome

THanks!

You can get a heat shrink sleeve, which is available at any pro shop.

An inexpensive way to do it is to buy a roll of masking tape, and build up the grip underneath by applying layers. You can still maintain the bevels this way, but I think any larger than 1/8 of a size up might be affected.

or you can switch your replacement grip with a gamma hi tech gel countour grip which effectively increases your grip by 2 sizes :)

You'll have to counter balance your racket since heat shrinks add like 20g to the handle, affecting the balance
