I've gone from 5/8 to 1/2 to 3/8 and now thinking of using 1/4. One of my racquets that I ordered was (accidently) a 1/4, and i didn't know this at the time. For some reason I played markedly better with it than with an identical 3/8 racquet. It gives somewhat better feel for the racquet stringbed and more control of the angle -i cant explain it too well. Any one here use a 1/4 grip on their racquets? and why?
