    I want ot buy a couple of the TW leather grip but I don't really want that the grip size changes.

    Which one of the two (1.3- 1.5) does not chance the grip size?
    Thanks

    Depends what grip you currently have on your racquet. Most likely the 1.5 is what you will want unless your racquet has a grip on the thinner side.

    There is a thread up and running here at TW that details the specs (weight and thickness) of many, many replacement rips. You might be able to compare your current grip with the TW leather. Should be easy for you to find via search.

    I'm using the regular head grip the racquet came with. The racquet were bought used so the grip got well used.

    I looked for it but nothing that would tell me exactly if either the 1.3 reduces the grip or the 1.5 increases it.

    ChicagoJack's thread will give you an idea of the thickness of the Head grip you currently have, but I would expect it to be in the region of 1.6-1.9. Then take into account the fact that synthetic grips stretch when fitted and compress when held, which will probably result in you wanting the 1.5 leather.

    I would say the 1.3 is designed more for someone wanting to keep their original grip size including the thickness of having an overgrip as well.
