Hello,

Has anyone tried increasing the grip size by one without using
overgrips? ie, having a shop do it or replacing the palette or by other means.

I am thinking of buying this racket from Japan when I visit there and most of
the rackets in Asia are only sold in 4 1/4 or 4 3/8. And since I need 4 1/2,
I would buy a 4 3/8.

I did try putting double over grips on 4 3/8 rackets before and it just
didn't feel right. Putting 3 layers was too much, 2 layers too little...

I also understand this can increase the weight of the racket but would like to
keep that to minimum.

ps. I actually prefer leather grip so I guess I could have the original synthetic grip stripped and add some kind of layers (?) and put leather grip?
