    Is 1/8 racket size a big difference?

    I recently ordered a racket in the wrong size, my size is a 1/4 and I ordered a 1/8, which is only a 1/8 difference, is this a big enough deal to send it back and order another and wait a few more weeks, or can I just put 2 over grips on it and be fine?

    Rackets with longer grip/handle

    I have larger hands and I now converted to double handed backhand. With my current racket (Wilson Blade 98 v6) I can't fit my hands on the grip, my top hand index finger is already on the frame. Do you have suggestions for rackets with longer grip that would solve this issue?
