    I've decided on which racquet and grip size I want to use, so now I'm looking to buy several Jack Kramer Autograph racquets with 47/8 grip size or 4 3/4 heavy.

    I have one in 4 5/8 but can build it up a size if you like. Email mprevidi@ gmail.com for more info.

    Is it a heavy (H by the grip size or says heavy)?

    If so, how much does it weigh?

    Are you specifically looking for a 4 7/8 grip, a racquet marked "HEAVY" or a specific weight?

    I'm looking primarily for the 4 7/8 - 4 7/8+ grip size JKA (preferably made in UK or pro select models). (To my knowledge, all of the 4 7/8 racquets were quite a bit heavier than the mediums in smaller grip sizes)

    If the racquet is 4 3/4 or 4 5/8 heavy, I will consider it though...

    Mine says 4 3/4 Medium and weighs over 14 oz. An over grip would give you the 7/8, but it would still be too light for you.

    I've never seen a 4 7/8, but there were 10 million JKA's made, so they have to be out there somewhere. Good luck in your search.

    In the late 70s I knew a player that used a 5 1/4 H Kramer Auto that weighed over 15 oz. He weighed over 300#, probably curled that much too. Saw the Kramer Pro Selects. They exist, good luck.

    If you still need a Jack Kramer Autograph, I recently dug one up. 9/10 condition. Grip size is 4 1/2 Medium.
