Okay, so you want to avoid adding much weight and a balance change and also want to avoid lessening the bevel feel--as I take your comments to mean. You can try base going for a thicker base grip, if there is one, and wrapping your one overgrip with more overlap. Other than getting a racquet in the desired grip size I cannot offer any further advice.

You could use some balsa wood. It's light and it'll build up grip size. Problem is, you have to be very good with woodwork.

I have used a few layers of electrical tape and it works really well for me. Hope it works for you.

Some companies (Head and Volkl I think) offer grip pallets that you can order from any authorized dealer. Other than that, you can send your racket to a place that custom molds your handle--RPNY or New Tech Tennis come to mind--and get them remolded.

Does New tech tennis still do this ?? I thought they stopped doing costom molds of the handle. ????:confused:

I'm very interested in this because I have found some very rare racquets that I want to use but also require a solid grip that's not too rounded from many layers of overgrip/heat shrink.

Not sure if they do or not. Its just one of the places I'd try. If not, they'd probably give you the name of who does.

How about telling me what RPNY stands for and then perhaps I'll find the link.
