    Which gripsize does Nadal use? Does he use 4 1/4 + one overgrip or does he use customized grip between 1/4 and 1/8 + one overgrip?

    He uses one that is similar in shape as the search box.

    So the grip is extremely small? Is it customized?

    Buy an Aero Pro Drive L2 grip
    Remove the replacement grip
    Add long strips of lead tape under the bumper guard until the swingweight is 350-355 kgcm2
    When done, add 3 grams of lead tape in the grip, either under the buttcap or wrapped in a ring just a few mm higher than the buttcap on the pallet.
    Add skin feel replacement grip, no overlap.
    Add babolat VS original grip, slightly overlapped.
    String with RPM Blast 15L at 55lbs
    Add custom damp.

    You have the closest thing to Nadal's racquet.
    Remember to practice without the overgrip while the replacement grip is fresh.
    Go win 9 slams.

    It is not Skin Feel. It is Syntec.
