    Default Any way to decrease the grip size?

    The racket I have now is a G5, and I'm pretty used to it.

    I bought the Apacs Nano 900, and it says it's a G2.

    Is there any way to decrease the size? I hear that a smaller grip allows for like better control or something like that.

    did you measure it? Apacs have different size scale. a Apacs G2 is similar to Yonex G4/G5.

    Answer: Yes. Get a plane (the carpenter's tool) to level the wood down.

    Also, click on this thread below (which discusses the different grip sizes of different brands of rackets):

    Oh...now I just feel stupid. Haha

    I thought all grip sizes were standard. Alright, never mind then.

    hmmmm would it just be better to consider another racquet, don't get me wrong, i like to fix things myself, but you got to pay for the tool to cut and furthermore if you don't like it, you're screwed, you might have only liked it for that racquet and set up
