    Yesterday I tried to bring on 4 5/8 to a 4 1/2 by sanding. Someone told me that all you have to do is take a marker, color the exposed handle, sand it until the ink is gone, and do it one more time. After this, even though it didn't feel small enough, I went ahead and put a grip on it (leather). It STILL feels too big! I am really pissed.

    Does anyone know the convention for this? I sanded it down twice with the marking. Should I do it two more times? Four more times?

    I really don't want to rely on measuring tape because the kind I have is for sewing and it isn't too accurate. Then again--is pinpoint accuracy important?
