    Default Dumb Questions

    HI,
    got a couple of newbie questions..
    1) do rackets come wit different sized grips?
    2) If a grip is too thick, can I sand down the racket so the grip is smaller when regripped?

    cheers
    Rich

    there are different grip sizes, you can check buy looking at the G number if is smaller number, the larger the grip.

    Idk bout the second one, does not seem safe, search google, there are articles on it

    You forgot to mention that victor grip sizes are the opposite of yonex. So G2 victor is like a yonex G4.

    usually says on the cone of the racket, where the handle meets the shaft.

    should say stuff like

    3UG4 - most popular for canadian rackets
    don't think they have G5 yonex rackets from north america.

    The U rating started in the 80's around the same time the Cab20 is introduced. These comes as a sticker on the cone. IIRC, there was no G rating back then. The Blacken (II?) precedes that so I'm pretty certain it doesn't have the stickers...
