Thread: Let's find out ideal grip size
01-23-2008, 12:37 AM #35
When I gotten a friend an Arc Saber in G4 and putting the same babolat syntec, it did not feel quite as confortable to me because my hand had the tendency to close my hand more (handling did not feel secure) but I could not because of the size.

I can tell myself now that I should not try G4 on my next racquet

G5 with one replacement grip ( karakal pu supergrip ) on wooden handle, 9.35cm.
G4 with two overgrips directly on wooden handle. 9.25
I've been using about G3 for quite a while, but I quit doing that after I found it more comfortable with a smaller grip.

me = 14.1cm
I need a big grip. Yonex G3 + medium to thick overgrip

me..G5 or G4,depends on which brand of racket am i using.As i know,apacs,kason's g4 isn't that big as the yonex's g4.

G4 + white supergrap~

Uh, once we put our measurements in the formula, wheres the scale that tells us if its G3, G4, or G5?

wait i was think what about special people, like people with amputated arms. So could they make the racket instead of a grip it's a screw on and then at the top it's clamped on (like a briefcase) and then they can use it like a hand?

my hand is 10.5 cm
my GS=10.4 cm
The grip feels to thick, I think i will tear the undergrip down, and put it directly on wood, i use towel grip.
I dont know how to get more thin grip as i like to you towel grip and grip on my racket is g3, any advice.
Do you think i will notice if i tear down the basic thin undergrip.

i was wondering how do you measure the circumference if the grip isn't a circle?? Don't you need to find out the perimeter instead?
02-10-2008, 02:54 PM #47
aren't circumference and perimeter the same thing?
Or is perimeter the general term and circumference used for circles?
Either way, aren't these semantics? (or at least, that's what it sound like to me, having English as a second language...)
Anyway, from what I expect, the "results" will be something along the lines of:
G = [0.5 ; 1.3] x h
In other words: almost random

Hey guys, I'm kinda new here, but would like to share from the data's. The easiest way to measure the circumference is just to put a piece of tape or string around the grip and mark where it meets the end of the string, then use the ruler to measure the length of the string. That should clarify any confusions about how to measure the circumference.
Jurethatsme, I think your formula is about right, may be the constant is just a few tenth of a digit off, but it seems almost very accurate. My hand length is about 12.5cm, and with your formula, my GS is about 9.25, and I have a G5 racket with 1 overgrip on top of the factory grip. Can you advice how many more grips I should have? Thnx!

If I use my data (my hand 11.5 cm, GS 9.3 cm) I get factor 0.8 (instead of 0.74 of Jerby's). And I can say that maybe my grip is slightly to big, but I can't do much because in our contry the racquets are (almost all) only G3 3U and G4 4U, so if I would like to buy a 3U racquet I have to reconcile myself with the G3 grip size... or... strip it to the wood, which I don't like.
If I would have to guess the right constant, ideal for most people I would say somewhere around 0.78. So, Grip size = H × 0,78. (for H, check page 1).
One more thing, I found this webpage: http://www.bbesports.com/English/racket_ti.htm
The "circumference" or "perimeter" is here "girth" :
Handle: G3（girth 89mm）、G4（girth 86mm）、G5（girth 83mm）
1 overgrip adds around 3-4 mm, so:
G5 + 1 overgrip = ~87 mm
G4 + 1 overgrip = ~90 mm
G3 + 1 overgrip = ~93 mm (if I measure my G3 racquet + 1 overgrip is exactly 93 mm)
Ideal for me would be 11,5 × 0.78 = 90 mm = G4 + 1 overgrip... but no AT500 3U G4 here around
