    I want to trim my 4 3/8 to 1/4. If sandpaper is the only method to work, and when should I stop until 1/4. is the weight of the racquet gonna be off too balance too?
    Thanks

    I wouldn't worry about the weight. Trying to sand down 8 bevels equally is almost impossible with a sheet of sandpaper. So, just go for it, then send it off to **** or one of a few other companies after you screw it up. They'll remold the handle to your liking.

    no

    sand paper is a dumb idea

    just take off the original grip and use 2 overgrips.

    At last, I think double overgrip feel good. Hopefully I don't get blister with less cushioning. Btw, RSNY is like Bloomingdale of Tennis. Thanks for the advice, guys.

    Is it pallet system like Head & Volkl pallet? I've heard it can reduce size by changing pallet.

    I better try double overgrip. to remove and put the pallet back myself would be too dangerous to my opponent. afraid the frame will fly off the handle one day if i swing hard. thanks jackky.
