    A heat shrink tube will add about 7g easily and an overgrip added another 10g. Thus, total 17g. Then u subtract 10g from the original grip will give u additional 7g to enlarge the grip size. I had weighted a 3U Ti-10 at 102g. The owner added additional grip on top of the original grip and plus a overgrip. Remember any add of 1 grip can easily increase 10g on the handle.

    This is my attempt to enlarge the size of my grips. This is a picture of my Yonex MP 45 ( I have two). I have already used this technique on my Ashaway Viper rackets, which came supplied with the smaller G4 handle with great success. The purpose of the heat-shrink tubing is two-fold really. Firstly, it removes the need for an overgrip. No matter how much I have tried I just don't like the 'feel' of an overgrip. I really like the feel of the bevels on my handle and I think the use of overgrips removes that firm and pronounced edge. I also like to replace my grips regularly. I like the feel of a fresh grip. But I also have very sweaty hands which facilitates the need to replace my grips regularly. Whenever I replace my grips I inadvertently tend to remove small wooden splinters from the handle. The presence of the heat-shrink tubing acts like a protective barrier. It also prevents the sweat from penetrating deep into the handle.
