    Has anyone switched from either 4g to 5g or vice versa? I was wondering if the 'difference' is huge. I have been using 5G size since I started playing but lately I am looking at a new racket I'm about to purchase and they only have 4G. Does anyone know exact differences in measurements? And if switching from 5G to 4G will require a long time to get use to or just a short one, thanks

    it feels like wrapping one more layer of thin overgrip. you can try that on your G5 and you will know how a G4 feels.

    Are you still keeping the original grip of your G5 racket intact ?
    if yes, you could purchase G4 racket, take the original grip off and do overgrip from that until you feel comfortable with the handle.
    If not, you have to find G5 racket, probably have to buy it from overseas.
