    My hand too is around 11.5cm as well, G5 with 1 babolat syntec. I would say, there is definately a difference between the G5 and G4, considering the girth differences is 3mm.

    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.

    Thanks, Matt.

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

    12.5
    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.

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

    Isn't that a measurement of 12 cm.? My fingertips was also to 12-13 cm. But do we actually subtract a cm.? What would my GS be?

    I see its:

    12*0.74=GS. GS=8.88

    or

    13*0.74=GS. GS=9.62

    Because I'm not exactly sure where to measure from.

    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?

    Husaari's measurement would be 11 cm, because you have to measure to the tip of your ring finger...

    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?

    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

    Hi! Just wrap up the handle with a cord or piece of paper and then measure the length... If "circumference" is used only for circles then I have to apologize - use "perimeter" instead

    Hi Jerby, where did you get those numbers (0.5; 1.3)? And why do you expect such variation? Proper grip size should not vary so much...

    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!

    Hi UnknownX, the formula is based only on Jerby's data right now and if someone would like to use his choice of the grip size, this formula can be considered. So 12.5 cm would lead to GS 9.25 (12.5*0,74) as you already calculated, which would be G3 + 1 overgip. But you use G5 so maybe you should really try with 2 overgips, with regard to your quite large hands (are you sure that you measured to the end of the ring finger and not to the end of the middle finger?). If you are not sure, you should try to put another grip on and measure the perimeter again. With 2 overgips you should be somewhere around 9 cm (it depends on the grip also).

    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
