View Full Version : Changing grip size question

01-03-2005, 08:28 AM
I currently play with a Ti Classic that has a 4 3/8 grip size. I have 3 of them. I have the opportunity to stock up on a few more but they have a 4 1/4 grip size. My question is, if I use grip building sleeves to add the additional 1/8 to them will it change the weight of the racquets? Would they play differently than the ones I have? Thanks

I have heat sleeve put on my stick (1 size), and the change is in theoretical boundaries. It even felt lighter due to larger grip size - I can hold it with less force applied.

Added weight in handle is less noticable than same weight put on some other place. Besides, I could notice 8 and 16 grams under the buttcap, since it was concentrated as far as possible from the pivot point. Sleeve is dispersed weight around pivot, and very light.

Well - you will notice it if you try hard enough...

I also have heat sleeves on my sticks and the difference is very noticable to me. I do like the increased headlightness though (about +2 points).
