    Has anyone tried increasing the grip size by one without using
    overgrips? ie, having a shop do it or replacing the palette or by other means.

    I am thinking of buying this racket from Japan when I visit there and most of
    the rackets in Asia are only sold in 4 1/4 or 4 3/8. And since I need 4 1/2,
    I would buy a 4 3/8.

    I did try putting double over grips on 4 3/8 rackets before and it just
    didn't feel right. Putting 3 layers was too much, 2 layers too little...

    I also understand this can increase the weight of the racket but would like to
    keep that to minimum.

    ps. I actually prefer leather grip so I guess I could have the original synthetic grip stripped and add some kind of layers (?) and put leather grip?
