    I currently have a 4 1/4 grip on the two racquets i use. Anyone suggest me how many overgrips to put on to get 4 3/8 without losing the bevels?

    It would be easier to use one of those sleeves that you slip over the grip and heat with a hair dryer. It comes in the thickness that you would need to bump up your grip to 4 3/8. Then you can apply the overgrip.

    Not how many.
    Tape one piece of tape on each of the sides. Replace grip and measure!
    You know what to do if it's too small. You know what to do if it's too big, right:):)

    Guess I can't really help you....
    Tourna grip might be too thin, and more than two kills the edges of your grip.
