Equipment Question

There are alot of pros that use the overgrip tape to enhance their grip. Does anyone know if the pros get a racquet that is one or two sizes smaller than they'd normally get in order to be able to use the overgrip w/o making the grip size too big?

I want to use those great overgrips, but find that it enlarges my grip size too much.

Re: Equipment Question

No, they just put it on, like everyone else Perhaps you put a replacement grip on top instead of an overgrip?

Give me SOME credit!!!

They're defniitely overgrips. Maybe I'm just too picky when ti comes to my grip. Even the slightest modification in my grip gets me frustrated.
Thanks for the response!

Re: Equipment Question
