Hey TW!!

Just wanted to know if a Yonex grip 4 3/8 runs true to size or smaller/larger. I'm currently hitting with a Volkl PB 8 and they seem to run a bit smallish.

Thanks!!

derski,

We have found that the Volkl grip has a rectangular shape very similar to Head. Yonex grips are more round shape and they do no have a tapered butt cap (like a Wilson). As far as size, I would say they are fairly similar but may feel different due to the different shape of the grip. I personally use the same size in both brands.

Thanks,
Brittany, TW

Derski, they are true to size as long as you keep the original thin Yonex grip. If you ever replace the grip with another brand, it will be about half a size bigger.

I changed the stock grip on a 4-1/2 Yonex to a Wilson FeatherThin and by doing so made the grip smaller. Then added a Solinco over grip (dry type) pulled tight. Yonex rep commented
it felt like a 4-3/8, but grip is actually one sixteenth under 4-1/2. I got distinctive bevel edges just like when using leather grip with an over grip. Probably could have just used 2
over grips and no base grip.

Point is that there are ways to enlarge or decrease grip sizes, however, it easier to increase than decrease. And, yes, because of Yonex pallet shape and size, changing the original
stock grip will get you normally a larger grip size.
