Hey guys I need your help. I'm going to buy a new racquet but I'm not sure which grip size should I get.
I'm planning to get a Yonex RDS 001 Mid (Grip size: 4 5/8 )

I'm now using a PD+ with three overgrips (two babolat symbio overgrips and one babolat vs original overgrip)
I want to know what is my racquet's final grip size after putting these three grips on the handle.
Btw, my pure drive's original grip size was 4 1/2.
Please help me because I dont want to buy a racquet with a grip size that is too big for me.

Thanks! :cool:

Well, if you have to put 3 overgrips on a 4 1/2 grip to make it feel well to you, by all means, please, buy your next raquet in size 4 5/8.

Also, depends on yr forehand grip.
i.e. if western grip topspin, a smaller grip is better (if eastern or cont. grip w/large size grip ok).
4 5/8 seems too big for very heavy topspin and rackethead acceleration/speed.
What playing surface mostly in Mexico (clay)?

My grip is between Eastern and SW. Most of the time I hit the ball flat but I still use some topspin. My FH is similar to Agassi's forehand.
I play on hard courts all the time. There are no clay courts near my city.

Ok guys thanks for posting your comments. I really appreciate it. I think I'm going to get a 4 5/8 this time.

:D
