View Full Version : Enlarging a Racquet's Grip

09-21-2007, 08:46 PM
Anyone ever enlarge the grip on a racquet that was too small? I'm looking at a racquet on **** that is 4-1/2". My size is 4-5/8". Would the altered grip feel and play the same as a regular 4-5/8 grip? Is this something I can do myself, or should I have it professionally done?

Thanks for any advice.

i changed grip sized and added somthing else in between to give it mor cushioning
it feels great for me....more stable and more accurate

So, enlarging the grip size is just a matter of adding a thicker over-grip? Something I can buy and put on myself?

well if you actually search on stuff about grip size and customizing and stuff you would get many suggesstion about adding heat shrink sleeves or another layer of over grip, making from small grip size to big is easier than making big to small

hate to say that... putting heat shrink-sleeve will makes the racquet heavier and more head light. putting more over-grip will makes you handle rounder and feel less bevel...
some racquets comes with pallet system, i think the best way to go is to change the pallet to size 4 5/8
