    Are there rackets with grip size G6?
    I can't find one with G6, only those with G5.

    Why are you looking for one? If you need a smaller handle, you can use a thinner grip, or possibly sand down the handle to a suitable size.

    I don't want to affect the racket's balance by changing the grip.

    I'm terrible at applying grips/overgrips, like 50% of the time I can make it look perfect

    Bravesword 12L 4UG6.
    ArcFB. FG6. 5UG6.
    NR750 4UG6.

    Nothing that you will like, to be very frank. The version of 12L is way too limp and light and the other 2 are just featherweights, not to mention durability being a concern.

    Just get a G5, remove original grip, put electrical tape to protect the wood, then overgrip/towel on. If you need videos to show how to grip an overgrip; here's a couple:





    Towel:




    Besides, you're still young. I believe you will grow to the point you can handle a G5 with original grip on eventually, but whether for your liking, that's another thing.

    Also, it takes time to learn to do a grip; but you'll get it eventually:

    Get a g5 remove grip and apply yonex ac102ex overgrip. It'll be very thin.

    For me personally I like somewhere between g4 and g5 so on my current g5 I use ac102ex over the original grip. I have average sized hands but I can see how a 14 year old would like a thinner grip. Nonetheless I think size G5 is suitable.

    I'm looking for VTZF2. I can only get 4UG5 (from Germany), but not 3UG5.

    Does a G6 racquet have the same BP as that of G4, given the same model? I doubt that the racquet manufacturer vary the head/frame weight for different grip sizes. I'm assuming that G4 grip is heavier than G6... of course here G4/G6 is just a random pick to illustrate my question.

    There's a thread on here about balance point and how weight in the handle affects static balance point but doesn't change the (active?) balance point when moving the racket as the head mass has not changed.

    Basically a grip size change or over grip will not have much of an effect on the rackets swing only changing the weight slightly and the feeling of the balance point when holding the racket.

    Also I think different handle sizes have proportional amounts of a hollow centre to try standardize the weight of the handle, although I may be wrong on that point, cannot be certain.
