Me, I use 3/8. What is a common size a lot of pros use? And does the size matter, or whatever fits your hand?

I use 3/8 too... you must have really small hands cause mine are tiny!

Dude, at least delete the other thread...

I used 3/8 for years.... then one day I used a 1/4, and my game improved about 300% instantaneously! 3/8 was too big (I only bought it cos my cock is 4 3/8 in girth :cool: ;) )

4 3/8, but I'd like to try a 4 1/2.

Alot of Spanish players use small sizes (4 1/4) for better topspin e.g Nadal, Coria, Verdasco.

I also believe Ancic uses 4 1/4. Federer is a 3/8 and Roddick is around about a 1/2 but it's totally custom. As is Hewitt's, he has his customised by Bosworth to be around an L6-7.

I use a 3/8, technically I should be a 1/2 but the 3/8 gives better feel and spin if you can middle it often. if you can't then you are going to get alot of nasty twisting in your hand.

I should use 1/2, but instead I use a 3/8 with an overgrip. It's a little small, but I think I am used to it. Would be better if it's a little bigger though.

The more interesting question would be what is your SQinch racquet face size as in 95, 98, 105, 107 etc.

I use a 3 1/4 grip with a 300 sq inch head.

you do know that 4 3/8 girth is really thin...heh

4 3/8 also, I like Wilson grips (thank goodness I got a deal from them). Babolat and Head make me feel like I'm gripping a doorknob or something after customization
