Hi,

I heard a lot of people say this. Is this true?

I usually use 4 1/2 in Wilson. Now I intend to get the Pure Storm Tour, so I should buy the 4 3/8?

It feels like it. If i were you, i would just go to the store and find out for yourself though.

There was a discussion that seemed to indicate that it seems 1/2 size larger because of the large replacement grip they use. Apparently the factory installed Prue Storm Limited with Leather Grips feel more true to their size, possibly because leather is thinner their replacement grip

Def try it out at the store. I use the storm tour in a 1/4 size and it feels fairly true to size. It's not as round as the wilson so the different shape may make it feel larger.

I'm using a 4 3/8 HEAD Microgel, but I'm switching to Babolat at the end of summer. I'm rather confused what grip size to get since I'll add an overgrip too. I think I might have to get a 4 1/4...

I will use some leather grip after I buy it.

so if it is because of the synthetic grip, then i should get 4 1/2.

When you try out at the store, it is with synthetic grip on. You can't put on a leather grip to try.

So, no confirmed information here.
