    I usually add a layer of electrical insulation tape over an original grip when I want to add another grip on top of the original. It makes re-gripping easier.

    Especially with the glue backed towel grips I've got. The glue is so strong it rips unprotected underneath grips to pieces when you remove the towel grip.

    They should be the same. I've seen ProAce and most of the Clonexes using the G for grip standard size, but I'm not too sure if they are the same though.

    One question : Does grip thickness and size have any effect on racquet vibration ie the aftershock of a shot?

    Technically it isn't supposed to. Correct me if I'm wrong but the handle is supposed to be the same weight regardless of size, isn't it? So that would mean they need to hollow out the handle more?

    It really depends on the size of your hand too, and of course the number of grips you use on your racquet.

    A question on grip size. I could use both Yonex G5 and G4 with towel overgrip.

    G5 is loosely comfortable but tends to move a bit in my palm when I use the racket. With G4 my pinky and ring finger couldn't touch the base of my thumb when I hold the racket. Only the middle finger could touch slightly on the base of the thumb.

    So which grip size is actually suitable for me? Would appreciate your expert opinion. Thanks.
