How can I make my K90 from a 4 1/2 to a 4 3/8 while maintaining a leather grip?
As far as I know you can't go down in grip size. Sell your racquets and buy new ones a grip size smaller or trade for a grip size smaller.
If you have still got the original Wilson leather grip on your K90,you might want to order a Tennis Warehouse leather grip and replace it with that one.
The Wilson leather,to my knowledge, is 1,8mm thick, whereas the TW leather can be purchased in 1,3mm.
I tried this myself on my 2 racquets and it worked a treat.
Maybe the 0,5 mm will do the trick!
(Tipp:Try and pull the leather as much as you can while re-gripping, and pay attention not to overlap too much)
That could be a good idea.
If I played with it enough, would it compress into 4 3/8 size?
What other option do you have? Apply and have a hit with it, you could also use thinner overgrips (assuming you use them.)
Failing that I've heard that good customisation services such as **** and P1 (possibly other less know customisers) can shave the handle down a grip size maintaining the grip shape and adding lead to compensate for lost weight (which shouldn't be too much at all.)
