    As the title says, I want to know if a Babolat leather grip would change the size of the grip? I'm not really worried about it getting a tad smaller but I'm really worried about it getting bigger... Anyone who has tried Babo's leather? What are your experiences with it? Oh, and I am planning to wrap an overgrip. Thanks!

    They are thinner than most replacement grips.
    I put one on every frame.

    Leather + overgrip is bigger than just a regular grip. Otherwise, it's pretty much the same size as a normal grip except it feels a lot different; firmer and squarer.

    Also, a new leather grip will be bigger than any grip that has been used for a while as all grips get smaller with usage (compressed).
