    I haven't played with a Wilson in years until the K Zen Team this week. The 4 1/2 grip felt every bit as big as a 4 5/8 in a Head, Prince, Pro Kennex, etc. racquet. Does anyone find this to be the case on Wilson grips? Thanks.

    I do prefer the Wilson grip shape, and yes, I find I play with one size smaller. With both Prince and Head, I'd play 4 1/2. With Wilson, I play with 4 3/8.

    I agree on the first 2 posts. Had the same experiences.

    I have a question... if I'm using a 4 3/8 Dunlop grip than when changing to Head should I get L4 4 1/2 ???

    Head and Prince usually have smaller grip size from my experience, so technically you should get a bigger grip size for head. But you should always never make that assumption. Have that at the back of your mind. Just go to the store and bring your Dunlop to compare. Hope this helps...
