Grip size dilemma

So I'm looking to get a new racquet, and once I figured out the problem of finding which racquet I have a grip size problem. I currently play with a 4 3/8 and its getting a little small. I like the size on the forehand, my forehand has a lot of spin to it, but I don't like it quite as much on my backhand. I tried a 4 1/2 recently and I felt more stable with the backhand but didn't like as much on the forehand. So should I get a 4 3/8 or a 4 1/2? Or go half way with a 4 3/8 with some overgrips?

4 3/8 with an overgrip. maybe babolat vs if you like it.

4 3/8 with an overgrip. theoretically, it should compensate somewhere in between. plus its always easier to make a grip bigger than it is to make it smaller.

Yeah it's called build up tennis warehouse sells them in full and half sizes. I use to be a half now I'm a 3/8 with a half size build up. Very easy to install all you need is the sleeves that they sell and a hot air gun what you do is shrink wrap the sleeve onto the grip.
