    I've been playing with the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick for about 2 years now. My grip size is 4 1/2. I recently bought another PDR, that I got for a good deal, but the grip size is 4 1/4. Does anyone know how many overgrips I'll need to match my 4 1/2? Thanks!

    Ummmm, since you have both racquets, wouldn't it make sense just to put overgrips on the smaller one until it feels the same as the larger one.

    About 4 or put 2 full size shrink wraps on it. Either way, they might not play the same since both methods will add weight to the handle, making the 1/4th grip more headlight. The overgrip method will add the least but the handle might feel funny cuz of all the overgrips

    One overgrip increases the grip size to about a 1/4 so 2 overgrips from 4 1/4 would increase the gripsize to 4 1/2.
