    Agreed.

    What do you use now? g4 or g5?
    How do you feel?
    There no std on which size to go.

    If I were you, I will go for g4.

    G4 is most likely your best bet. I didn't need the ruler rule but just using it since you mentioned it, in both instance, my hand is about almost a CM shorter and I use G4.

    I used to use a G5 but later on I realized that G5 was just too small for may hand and was affecting my gameplay. A friend of mine advised me to go G4 since before because I have slightly larger hands than him and he used G4 but I did not take his advise until later on.

    I would say it's more about what your hand size is then size handle can be chosen. In a way, think about it as getting a pair of shoes.

    if for g4 i will use a replacement grip about 1/4 overlapping. i like using just the plain overgrip than a replacement grip but it will cause blister.if i use overgrip i will make 2/4 overlapping. is there a way to solve the blister if i were to use an overgrip?

    The size of my hand is about the same with yours. I prefer g5 & use overgrip also at 2/4 overlapping. I think, solving the blister is about choosing the right surface of your overgrip. A smoother or softer surface might help. Good luck.

    For me, I put a Yonex super grap on top of my G4 with 1/2 overlap to make a full double layer overlap.
