TW sells Heat shrink sleeves which can increase your grip size 1/16" or 1/8" depending on which one you buy.

you can also cut off the tips of your fingers or add another replacement grip.

^^^^^^
cutting your fingers off is also a cheap and inexpensive way to save on replacement and overgrips.

The best way I have found is to use 1 layer of duct tape for 1 gripsize increase.

i was thinking about that, but wouldn't it compress over time

No it works great...I used duct tape on my fischers for 6 months without replacing it...never noticed the grips getting smaller. I have since gone back to bare leather so dont need it any more as leather is thicker..

I don't think cutting off your finger tips is feasible. How are you gonna pick your arse to play like Raf?

Putting on one more replacement grip didn't work, either, which I did. It made the edges gone.

I'm thinking of getting a baseball bat wrap. It's much longer than tennis grip so you can roll it as much as you want.

the grip building sleeves/tape are no good for you?

my friend put hockey tape around like 5 times and it increased it from a 1 to I would say a 4.

I used electrical tape, overgrips, duct tape and Heat shrinks...but, for me, the best way is buying a new racquet with the right gripsize...honestly :(

just put some kind of tape over it. then toss on a replacement grip or overgrip....i would not reccomend toss an overgrip over the tape tho because im not sure if the overgrip is thick enough

Yes, I listened to nickb on duct tape and it does indeed do the trick.
