    Also hardcore customizers, how long did it take you to figure out your ideal setup?

    I have recently taken out the stock replacement grip and put in a babolat leather grip with a wilson pro white overgrip which has improved on the feel of that ball and which has also improved on the overall gripsize/grip shape that head unfortunately uses.

    I play with the new MG Mid and have it completely stock with lead tape added on the sides about 4.5 inches long. Very solid.

    do head grip sizes run small? a 4 1/2 on a wilson seems so much bigger that a 4 1/2 on a head racket

    I play with the prestige classic 600, with one overgrip over the original head calfskin grip. I also add 5 grams of lead at 3&9, i find it to add stability and power without losing any racquet head speed.

    I'd say they do a little bit. But it's hard to really tell because they have such different shapes. I agree with you that head grips feel a little smaller than wilson's.
