ps 6.0 85 - changing grip
I use the ps 6.0 85 with an L3 grip. I like the leather grip but its a tiny bit too small.

Can someone please give me some advice on which leather grip to replace it with if i want it slightly bigger?

I would probably want an increase in size that is similar to putting a really thin over grip on top what i have now.

Leather grips are expensive and last a long time so i don't want to make a bad decision.

I have been thinking of the tennis warehouse leather grips. Would the thicker version of those grips be what i am looking for? or would it be too thick?

I know the questions are pretty specific but any personal experiences with leather grips in general would be appreciated. :)

By the way, leather grips are awesome!

Heat shrink wraps would be great for your situation. They can build up the grip size by 1/8 ( Black color ) and 1/16 ( White color ). Links are provided below.

1/8 build up :

1/16 build up :

For the heat gun, just use a hair dryer. Or a oven or stove. Tried the oven and it worked pretty well and fast. I just kept spinning the racquet in the oven since it covered 2 sides of the racquet. But just make sure not to burn it or melt it to a point where it starts dripping. <-- From my experience.

I vaguely recall reading on the forums that the Volkl leather is thicker than other brands. Or was that heavier...or both..? Sorry, I'm no help.. haha
