    Hi all, I'm just wondering is it that small grip rackets has lesser demand compare to those larger grips e.g. G5 onwards? It does seems to be the case here in Malaysia, most shops rarely restock G6 grip rackets once they're finish. All new stocks comes in G5 grips only.
    I myself prefer G6 grips as it gives me a sense of better control of my racket compare to G5 grips. My rackets are all in G5 & I've remove all the original grip and wrap an overgrip over the naked racket handle.

    Grips used to be thicker than G5, slowly the manufacturers have mostly moved to G5 which seems to suit most people.

    G6 are more rare and I expect will stay that way.

    Its all about preference, I like G5/G6 but have friends who add thicker grips on top of G4/G5 because they prefer a very thick grip.
