Grip size

I find the ruler test and the index finger test both a bit too inaccurate.
I like to use the hand printout to measure my grip size. Which usually gives me 3/8.

I never measured my racquet grip circumference, but recently (for the hell of it) I used a tailor measuring tape... and I kept getting 4 5/8. Stock grip + 1 overgrip.
I am bothered by this, and will have to try measuring without the OG next time.
I just bought a 1/4 size racquet and will measure it when it gets here.

just measured my 3/8 yonex ezone with a yonex leather grip.
circumference came out to 4 7/16" (half a size up from 3/8").

adding one overgrip (supergrap) made it go up 1 full size to 4 9/16". i previously said 5/8, but its closer to 9/16"

But an overgrip should just add a 1/2 size not a full size...

got my new 1/4 yonex racquet. (sidenote: having used 3/8, it does feel a bit smaller but not too much. makes me want to change all my racquets to 1/4 now :unsure: )

using a tailor measuring tape... the 1/4 grip measured 4 3/8" stock and brand new.
with supergrap it comes out to 1/2"

Sounds right. Same for your ezone racket. Yonex grips run big and have thin replacement grips. Leather grip enlarges your handle. Supergrap is a thick overgrip too.

my wilson is about the same, don't think it is just yonex
also yonex leather is 1.4mm, which is on the thin side

I found it to be similar to 2nd Serve Ace's list but with wilson and head swapped... The Wilson's from latest gen some seem to have grown.
