    In general, how much impact does the difference in grip size going from 4 3/8 to 4 1/2 have on the overall static weight of a racket? Thanks.

    I don't want to be cynical but if you and some other players on this board keep perturbing too much about this kind of detail, it will be much harder for you to become a better player. You should think about how to improve your strokes, your physical, and your mental toughness.

    Find yourself a racquet that fit your style with a gripsize that feels nice in your hand and you're good to go.

    Take my advice as a constructive criticism.

    Whatever the weight of the grip, heat sleeve or overgrip you use..that will be the increase in weight. Probably a few grams.
