Hi all .... A few days a go, i posted a topic on enlarging grip size via the Heat Shrink Sleeve method. After much digging and research, i finally gathered the materials and instructions for doing so. For all those who may be interested, pics are below ....... enjoy. Materials 1) Heat Shrink Tubing / Sleeve - Comes in a variety of sizes and are available at specific hardware shops. For my experiment, i used Radiform Heat Shrink Tubing - 2 : 1 (non-adhesive). I cant really remember the actual size, but as long as it fits through the end cap of the racket, it's good enough. I used the non-adhesive type as i may want to remove the sleeve at some point. 2) Heat Gun - Any off the shelf type will do. Hairdyers can also be used, but it may take quite some time. 3) Cutters / Penknife - To trim off the excess shrunk tubing I didn't really pull the tape taut as i should have, so the actual reading should be 7.5cm First, measure and cut the Heat Shrink Sleeve ( HSS ) to accomodate the handle length. *IMPORTANT* : Remember to leave adequate excess at both ends as the HSS shrinks length-wise as well. In my case, i left an excess of 2.5cm at both ends. Slide the handle through the HSS and ensure that the excess on both ends are even. Standby your Heat Gun, medium heat should be more than adequate. *Important* ... Rotate the handle constantly and heat the HSS with a continuous motion. DO NOT focus the heat direct at any one spot for too long. A gradual rotating left-right-left motion will ensure that the HSS shrinks evenly. After you're done, the shrunken HSS on the handle should look like this: After application of the HSS, the overall diameter has increased by 0.5cm. ( i pulled the tape taut this time) While this may not look like much, i noticed that there was a difference in grip feel for me. In any case, you can always increase the grip size further by either adding another HSS, or by any of the other means. Now, trim off the excess according to your own preference. In this example, i trimmed the top end to the bottom end of the cone, while leaving the butt cap 'wrapped' to protect it. Another trimming alternative : For some players who are worried that the HSS method will 'round-out' the handle, you can see here that the bevels are still quite 'sharp' and pronounced. After i was done with the HSS, i wrapped a Karakal PU Grip over it and i can still feel the bevels just fine. I personally like this method as not only does it enlarge the grip size, it also doubles to protect the wood from constant grip changes, sweat or moisture. And because it's used for industrial applications, the HSS will definitely last for a long time. The HSS is also removable, if ever you decide you dont want it anymore. This method is also nice and neat. And there you have it, a quick DIY guide on how to enlarge your grip size using the Heat Shrink Sleeve method. Just a word of caution, if you're not very confident with trying this on your precious racket straight off .... practice a little first on either an old unwanted racket ( like i did ! ) or on any tube/pipe, just to get a feel for it. Happy Modding !
