    What is the original replacement grip on Yonex racquet?

    I use Yonex 98 racquet and wanted to replace the original grip. What replacement grip does Yonex use on their ezone racquet? What thickness grip should I use to get the same feel as the original replacement grip? If I use some thing that is thicker like syntec or hydrosorb will it affect my play?

    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?
