Exact handle or slightly smaller?

    By measuring my hand crease to the tip of ring finger, I'm exactly 4 1/2".

    Should I get a 1/2 sized racquet or get 3/8 and add overgrip? I've read it's better to get exact measurement and have also read to get slightly smaller handle, what is the general consensus?

    (I'm looking at picking up a microgel radical MP)

    If you read enough, you will only confuse yourself.
    First racket, play with 1/2 and don't use overgrips.
    After the first, you will know whether or not volleying and net play are important to you, and get the corresponding grip size that you need.
