Advice: Is My Grip Size right?

I use a L2, with an overgrip or 2. When I measure my hand from the second line to the top of my ring finger, it comes up at 4 1/4 - a L2. Yet when I hold a L2 racquet theres only enough room to get my index finger in the space with a bit of a squeeze. Should I be using a L3?

Depends on what feels right to you. It's not etched in stone.

On a side note, I measure for a 4 5/8's. My question is..what about you really big guys? I'm 6'1 and I'm up to the maximum grip size..what are the 6'4 guys with giant hands doing, adding 2 heat shrink sleeves?

My grip measures 4-1/4 too, but for some sticks I prefer the 4-3/8. Just depends on the type of replacement grip and overgrip.

I'm 6ft with quite small hands, but as I use 2 overgrips I suspect I might be better with a size 3... I'll probably stick to a 2 though, I guess its what im used too, seems to work ok. once a match or so my racquet rotates due to lack of grip but thats only when I dont use an overgrip.
