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?

    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.
