Fixing Yonex grip size issue

Funbun

I bought a 2022 Yonex Ezone 98 in 4 1/4 (L2) grip, and found the base grip + overgrip to be uncomfortably bigger than I am accustomed to than in typical 4 1/4 grips + overgrip.

I changed the base grip to a Wilson FeatherThin to get me closer to my preference and, while I much prefer it now, the size is now just a hair too small for my liking, with a blister on my lower palm.

Is there a replacement grip that is thicker than the Wilson FeatherThin but thinner than the stock Ezone grip?
I've read that the stock Ezone grips are already rather thin to compensate for the bigger base.

Tourna grip that have 1.4mm thickness, prince resi pro thin 1.4mm, Tourna pro 1.55mm, or babolat syntec feel at 1.55mm.

You can try these grip as an alternative.

I"ve had the same issue, and found that using a 2nd over grip is to big and with the loss of edge. I found a solution, that I put on the handle before gripping and .. well, it's rather different. it's dry wall tape.. yeah, it's perforated so it's very light, it's like fiberglass so it makes a very tight edge when wrapping and it is very thin and gives just enough width to be the perfect fit.. good luck.

i would try the folded overgrip technique, double wrapping the butt. there is a video on tennisspin

otherwise i would tell people to order 1 size down on a yonex.

I find that kimony leather works in reducing grip size. If pulled tight it will weigh about the same as OEM. It is literally a thin leather strip with no backing or padding so vibrations will come through more.

Alternatively, and what I've reverted to, is to carefully remove the OEM grip and regrip it with the same grip but stretch it as much as possible. May require using since double sided tape to reaffix the OEM to the pallet.

The Tourna thin is just too thin and I really disliked it. Prince Resithin is decent. I have the older Babolat Skinfeel which is by far my favorite but it is discontinued and I heard the Syntec is similar but not exactly the same

I've since opted for the Syntec Team and it's just a tad bigger than the Wilson FeatherThin, which is just right for me.

Wouldn't it be easiest to just order 1 size down from normal and then use a thicker grip? The stock Yonex grip is very thin, so I would think almost any normal grip will make it feel larger.

It would be had I not already bought the racquets. For the sake of consistency, I'll do the same again if I need more of the same frame.
