Increasing grip size

(1/1)

PhEnomIC:
I dont have the exact measurement with me but i have a big hand and i think i generally use 5/8 or something.   I just broke my racket and decided to try my sisters liquidmetal radical because she never plays.  I really like the racket but the grip is way too small for my likeing.  How hard is it to make it a 5/8 grip.  I wrapped it in electric tape which is somewhat thick and it made it useable but it feels a little mushy.  Any tips?

Tennis4you:
Phenomic,

What size does your sister have?  Going up one size is really easy, they have slips that go under the grip and they jump the size by one.  I have never heard anyone using 2 though, but I suppose it is possible.  I am doubting your sister uses a 4 1/2"...

Jamesdster:
I like the 5/8 grip also as I have big hands.  But I buy my rackets with 1/2 grips and have a couple of wraps of grip tape to increase the size.

phenomic:
Ok i checed the sizes, my sisters is 4 3/8.
My previous racket was 4 1/2.  
The one before it was 4 5/8.

I felt most comfortable with 4 5/8 but 1/2 is fine.  Where can i get these inserts?

Tennis4you:
let me check, hold on right there...
