    When manufactures/TW measure the grip size, do they measure the bare handle or do they measure it with the synthetic/leather grip on? All my rackets were purchased as 4 3/8 but when I measure them they are 4 1/2.

    It is measured with the factory grip installed. What are you using to measure? 1/8" is easily within human error depending on what method you use to do the measuring.

    And WHERE are you measuring? Certain portains of the grip are bigger.

    Just the lower middle section of the grip (NOT near the buttcap lol).

    Just checking. The buttcap would be substantially bigger for most racquets. Not sure on the small difference in size. Did you check it a few times? Maybe in different places?
