That's just what I've read here and I put it out there. (Not that I care what base grip he uses.) I know how thick they are. I use them. And 1.55mm is not quite thin like an overgrip. Overgrips are in the 0.50+/-mm thickness range.the skin feel is 1.55mm thin like an overgrip.
No you're not wrong, I'm just saying if Nadal indeed uses skin feel then he must really prefer a smaller grip (and his hands are not small at all).That's just what I've read here and I put it out there.

lol. You know what I mean though. His grip size should definitely be larger than 4 1/4 according to the traditional method of measurement.:shock:
fit the index finger of your non-hitting hand in the space between your ring finger and palm while holding the racquet in an eastern forehand grip.
comfort ist important, but it's important that the grip is not too small. generally I would think that a thinner handle allows for better wrist action but it can't be so thin that you push the fingetips into the palm. there should at least be a minimum space.All of that "use this grip size based on these measurements" is kind of goofy. Use the grip size you find most comfortable, and most facilitating to your game style. Nadal uses a small grip so he can whip the racquet around easier. From the pictures I've seen his hands are actually quite large, and they seem to dwarf the handle. He uses it for his game style...
Also, I've played everything and don't really find Babolat grips to run large at the moment. I use a Babolat number 2 grip, and 3 from anyone else feels too big.
