New Yonex grip measurements?
So some people have mentioned that the grip sizes have increased a bit, with the most notable being G5.
Does any have specific numbers? I've always referenced G5 as 83mm and G4 as 86mm.
I know for certain that they've changed because I recently compared G5's of an early 2007 AT700 and a late 2007 Arc7 and found a noticable difference.
I'm mostly just wondering about these two things:
- Has G4 changed too?
- If so, is the new G5 the same or slightly different from the old G4.

ahh I thought I'm the only one feeling they are different.
my at900t which I bought november last year and other rackets I bought march this year feel so different (grip size) all of them g5.

When did the new grip measurements start? 2007? 2008?
According to the Yonex 2008 Japan catalogue the grip sizes are as follow
G6 - 78mm
G5 - 81mm
G4 - 84mm

if not mistaken, yonex did change the grip shape, not size.
maybe due to the shape changes, we feel it smaller or bigger from previous grip shape.

Now that you mentioned it, yeah it does feel differnet. Compare it to my Arc7 to NS9K, 900T and older rackets. The Arc7 G5 does feel slightly bigger then the others.
I actually like the size and feeling on the Arc7 better.

Found out info. The grip sizes exactly the same. The measurements of the girth the grip is referring to the wood handle.
The only reason why it feels different is because of the stock grip is different, that is why we notice that the new Arc Saber rackets feels thicker comparing racket other rackets of the same grip size.
NS grip - 1.6mm
ARC grip - 1.65mm

2 * 3.14 * (r + 1.6) = (6.28r + 10.05)mm
2 * 3.14 * (r + 1.65) = (6.28r + 10.36)mm
If the difference between Yonex grip sizes is 3mm that is a 1/10th of a grip size difference.

Yeah it's it is a small difference looking at the numbers. The feeling is definately noticable.
Also with the different thickness, would most likely be a difference in the cushion as in how much you can press into the grip.
