The difference in area from measuring including the frame and excluding the frame (string bed only) would be far far far faaaaaaaaar larger than the 3-ish sq inches difference difference that actually exists between what's advertised and what's true.
With regards to Stich's grip size, I remember reading on the forum a guy who had his frames stating they were grip size 4 (4 1/2).
Also...have a look at this picture...I clearly see space between his fingers and palm...and he's a very tall guy with fairly big hands and long fingers.
Granted ... he might have gone up in size as he aged...but grip size 2 (4 1/4) is still hard to believe for me for a guy who's some 1.93 m...(Safin/Ivanisevic size).
Rafa is 1.85 m and he's "pushing it" with his small grip size. Stich's hands are significantly larger !
i believe you about the measuring thing, outside of frame measure would be huge... anyway a big man can still have small hands....
