    @ Yoppy: given all this feedback I'll certainly give a slimmer grip another go. I find though I don't have to focus much on holding the racquet with a bigger grip, whereas with a thinner grip I have to consciously grasp more tightly to keep the racquet from slipping.

    Anyway, this is all off-topic, if it's not already created, I'll start another thread on grip size later.

    hi caduceusnz, I personally have very small hands in comparison to most and therefore i always go for G5 rackets that are smaller grip size. Plus I also put a very thin layer of grip on the racket (by streching it and cuting them).

    Maybe you can try changing the grip type as well, while its smaller it will also give extra grip on your hand. I just found few months ago a Wilson grip, the package is in red and white colour and has Roger Federer pic on it, its really good.

    Yeah it's one of those guidelines isn't it that the closer you are to the net, the closer your grip should be to the shaft of the racquet?

    By the way, just to keep this post vaguely on topic, I agree overgripping at the shaft shouldn't damage unless it's a very poor quality paint job on the racquet (or you use superglue to stick the grip on to the shaft and then try to get the grip off later!).

    my armortec 500 GR version. Due to wrap the grip till the shaft.

    It is normal that when you swing the raquet it makes noises?
