Always preferred 3/8s. Just recently though, I've gotten a bit picky about grip size and type. Now I'm enjoying a 4-1/2 with a 3/8s buttcap attached and a leather grip with one og.
I don't like too much flare on the bottom, hence the 3/8s buttcap but do prefer a larger grip (4-1/2) with the thinner leather.
"how many times??!?"
