Could anyone please tell me how the Babolat grip shape compares with Wilson's?

Also, in my experience Babolat grip sizes tend to run a bit large, could someone tell me how a Babolat 4 3/8 would compare in size to a Wilson 4 3/8?

Thanks

Babs tend to be marginally bigger and slightly more rectangular.

I own the Aeropro drive in 3/8 and demoed the Pro Open in 3/8. I would echo the sentiments above; the Babolat definitely feel bigger.

Thanks guys for confirming what I suspected on both shape and size.

If it helps, I actually go a size down with Babs. I use 1/4 and with Wilson I use 3/8ths.

I find Wilson to be the superior grip shape personally, but Babolat's is not bad. Wilson is just my all time favorite grip shape..helps me find my serve super fast and the middle spot between SW and W feels very natural on my forehand.
