to increase a grip size would you try to put another replacement grip over your current grip? if you did would that do any diffrence and also would it really up it one grip size or how much?

if you try to increase the grip a shrink wrap or overgrip would be the most cost efficient method without tampering with weight and balance too much.

as for replacement grips it depends on which one you buy.

i would need to know more about what you want to do, but start with a fresh grip(i understand we don't replace them often enough) and an over grip maybe two, if that works do it, if the bevels are well enough defined then a shrink wrap would be wright probably

Two wilson pro overgrip = one grip size. Grip size moves in 1/8 of inch. and wilson pro overgrip increase it be 11/16 of an inch. I think just adding overgrip is the simpliest way. It also make your grip really soft..

You can try this product too: addongrip (.com) works great for me and allows you to change grip shape too.

ive read that an overgrip will add a 1/16" to the thickness, 2 will give you 1/8" which is a level up
ive seen though that not all overgrips are the same thickness, so when i can't have 2 yonnex supergraps on, i use a tournagrip and a yonnex-supergrap to get a slightly smaller grip
the key i guess, regarless what you are gonna try is measure the thickness after every addition until you get to your desired thickness
