I use a racquet with grip size 4 3/8 L3. So I thought that the circumference of the handle/grip would be 4 and 3/8 inches. But when I measured it with a tape it's ~ 5 1/8 inches? Is it b'cos of the overgrips I have put? Also, what does L3, L4..mean?

not sure about how it is measured... i think it is without any grips. but L3 is the measure of grip. 4" = L0, 4" 1/8 = L1, 4" 1/4 = L2 and so on.

Of course the overgrip and grip add additional material to the handle and consequently increase the circumference.
