    we have to remember that yonex and some other brands, for example, winnex, is reversed.

    yonex goes from small to big... G5, G4, G3, G2, G1
    winnex goes from small to big... G1, G2, G3, G4, G5.

    intuitively, winnex is right.
    however, yonex's way is more commonly known.

    however from cheongsa's disection of our yonex racquets show that even yonex use generic endcaps that are later stamped with the yonex logo.
    these generic caps have the winnex method of labelling sizes.

    so this might lead us to think that the original way of doing it is...

    small to big - G1 to G5.
    and yonex just changed it from G5 to G1 to be different.

    My hands are fairly kinda big, I was playing with standard G4 but I left the original grip on. I over gripped jt with crappy Wilson pro over grip then I over gripped the Wilson grip with rkep G-10 now it's pretty big LOL

    @chickenpoodle . hard to believe that as Yonex has been in the market earlier than most other brands.
