    I am slowly getting down in grip size and I am in between 3/8 and 5/8.
    1/2 does not feel good on my Prince EXO3 Graphites, but went back to old Aerogel 100's (5/8 grip), but removed replacement grip and added 2-3 overgrips (Volkl). and feels very good, assume it is somewhere between 3/8 and 1/2 plus balance point small shift. Anyone else try this or is it just one of the if it feels good to the player who cares?

    Yes and yes. I know others who have done this, more for the fact that they like the feel of just one or two overgrips directly on the pallet. You can feel the bevels more and the grip is firmer. In fact I think Soderling does this, but of course he has a custom molded pallet.

    If it's working for you, there's nothing inherently wrong with it. Happy hitting! :shock:
