    I bought 2 NTour Two 105s from different Tennis shops as I wanted them in 4 3/8s.

    After getting the second one I noticed I started favoring one over the other.
    So I had the both restrung the same and put new grips on both.

    Then I noticed one of my 4 3/8s is actually closer to 4 1/2. It's significant when measuring.

    Now I know why the major pro's have their rackets redone by a racquet "perfect specs" company. (Not sure what their called)

    1. Wilson is so famous for their quality control.
    2. Make sure both grips are done with similar tightness.

    I have the exact same problem with my two Pure Storm.

    Although they have the exact same weight, the grip size are different !

    They're both 4 3/8 (written on the butt-cap) but one is in fact 4 1/2. I discovered that when I removed the grip.

    Go figure ...

    Next time, I'll buy Fischer or Yonex to avoid this kind of situation.

    Hmmm

    I had both racquet's re-strung and re-gripped by a pro. Just after that I discovered the discrepancy.

    I had not weighed them but I am now.
