One more Q,
I know some (like meaghs) went with 4-1/4 grips size on the yonnie. Does the thin yonex stock grip mean a bigger pallet?

In other words, if i order a 4-3/8ths and swap the grip out for leather because of the thin stock grip, will the racquet feel bigger than a 3 grip?.. due to a thicker, heavier grip?

Wilson 4-3/8's are perfect for me, I built my head grips up to wilson size. Babolats 3 size is a tad too big (with og) and Becker's 3 is a tad too small (with og).
Yes you are right. Swooping for a leather will inadvertently increase the grip size, thanks to the paper thin stock grip.

That's why I had mail ordered yonex leather grips directly from Japan as they are only 1.4mm in thickness. Most leather grips are 1.8mm thick.

There are other leathers on the market that are 0.8mm, but that's just way too thin.
