Does this make sense? What if you use an overgrip? Thanks





Height..............Grip Size
Under 5 2.......4 1/8
5 3 to 5 5.....4 1/4
5 6 to 5 8.....4 3/8
5 9 to 5 11...4 1/2
6 & taller..........4 5/8

No.
Handsize and personal preference is much more important a guideline.

it's not about how tall you are, but the size of your hands. i'm not 6 foot but i am a 5/8

Height has nothing to do with it, and while obviously hand size has something to do with it, it's not the only thing. Players with similar sized hands play with vastly different grips depending on game style and preference.

No it doesn't. For example, I am 6.4 and I have relatively small hands. I use 4 3/8 with og...

I'm 5'7" but my hands are as big as most of my friends who are around 6'0". I use a 4 1/2 with an OG, sometimes two.

yeh dunno if there is a direct correlation between handsize and height..

but i've heard somewhere that the size of the hands determine something tho ... :p

but back to the topic of grips.. well all i know is that its all about preferences and all..

my dad is 6' and he uses 4 1/4 grip size where as i'm the same height and i use 4 1/2 with 2 overgrips on top of the replacement grip..

I'll vote for grip size per whatever feels comfortable when you swing it.

It can also be the case that one maker's grip profile feels right in one size while another might feel better either a size larger or smaller. Prince grips run on the small side for me, but my Volkls are big and block-ish. Wonderful for me - bad for others.

Very subjective issue regardless of the actual dimensions of a player's hands.
