My bad- The Technifibre racket grip is good. It's the "Solinco" racket grip that is terrible!
Are you feeling any bevels at all after this customization? You have rounded them off quite nicely with all the ducktape and overgrips.
For tennis there isn't an L0 either in adult frames.
Old daze of volleying and small headed rackets 4 3/4 was the biggest made, by Wilson anyways.
L2, with some layers of athletic tape on the repl. grip, then some over grips.
Unless you're using the "lite" or "team" versions.
The Babolat Pure Drive Lites, AeroPro Team and AeroPro Drive Lites come in L0 sizes.
L3 + one O,6 mm overgrip, not to tight.
back and forth between L3 and L4..
Started with L3 with Wilson Pro Staff Tour 90 (13 years ago).
Then tried L4 and it suited me pretty much..
Then switched to Aero Pro Drive and could not utilize its spin potential till switched back to L3.
Now am playing Aero Storm, less spin/baseline bashing - back to more all-court style which I used to play... No I am back again with L4 and happy. And it seems in all the situation L4 is what I prefer. More stability, more solid feel, less spin.
I like L5 for everything except those awful oval Head-style grips. Those need to be L4 if necessary.
Looking back, I definitely wouldn't do that extreme of a grip anymore. L3 to L4 is enough now.
What's your favorite hat size?
Lol, either can vary by taste but are ultimately dictated by how you are shaped.
By "standard" measurements I could grab onto an L5 with no issues. From my wrist to tip of my middle finger is about 8.25". I typically wear L or XL gloves depending on the brand.
But weirdly enough I can't stand using anything but L3 + overgrip. I think it's because of the way I hold the racquet. Even L4 with just the base grip makes me feel a bit uncomfortable.
I frequently blister a part of my palm right under the part where my ring/pinky meets the palm, probably as a result of a slightly-small grip and racquet twisting on off-center hits, but I really hit better with a 4 3/8 (L3) with an overgrip.
by the standard way of measuring I'm a 4(4 1/2) But I play a 2(4 1/4). Like many, I just feels like its easier to whip the racket with the smaller grip.
personally, I found myself doing more unforced errors with L3. And I hit with more confidence with L4.
its just preference. 5 years ago i played a 4. Then I went down to a 3. And a few months ago I had my sticks reduced to a 2. All with an overwrap. At this rate I'll be hitting with a kids handle size in a few years.
I have poor plow through with smaller grip.
L4 gives me good plow, but with L3 I feel less comfortable while hitting through the ball
4 5/8 (L5) is my preferred grip size as I find it comfortable for my eastern forehand grip. I can also play well with a 4 1/2 (L4).
I've been told by some knowledgeable coaches that smaller grips have greatly decreased wrist injuries. Started playing with an L4. I'm now using a 2 and it works well for me.
Depends on what company makes the bat. Usually either a 2 or 3, as I like them to feel a bit smaller in my hand.
Current Yonex bats are a 3. Previous Pacific bats were a 2.
L3 with 0,75 overgrip. I try to have as big grip as possible. Prevents me from squeezing the racquet to hard.
L3 Seems the same on APD and PST
