    Anyone experience head grip sizes running small? My 4 5/8 grip feels like a 4 1/2

    Also most Prince grips, half a size smaller.

    Yeah. Head grips do run slightly small. I found that out. I ordered a 5/8 and it felt like a 1/2.

    It feels smaller than Prince, and I figured it's due to more rectangular shape with Head. It seems love or hate, but I'm totally happy with Head grip shape.

    yea they do run small. I was playing with a 3/8 grip size on my metallix but it felt like 1/4 and that's probably what gave me tennis elbow.

    Hi,

    Yes they do, in my experience.

    Head has changed their grip shape in the MG Prestige models according to a Head Rep., I spoke with.

    I still think the MG Prestige Pro grips feels slightly weird and somewhat smaller, so I use a thicker overgrip on my Head rackets (Gamma Supreme Overgrip) and a thinner one on my Babolat and Wilson rackets (Yonex Supergrap) - to even out the small difference.
