Hi, I recently changed my 18 year old racquet for a newer one, however, the country where I live in, has very limited options of grip sizes. The biggest grip I could find was a 4-3/8 and Im slightly bigger than a 4-3/4.
My question is, would adding many grips and overgrips will change the racket weight and balance so much that it will be counterproductive to add thickness to it?
Would it be better to remain with a smaller grip than changing the structure to that degree?

I would like to hear people's opinion on this subject.
Thanks

An average overgrip weighs about 5 grams, and yes it will change the balance a bit. The more overgrips you wrap the more you lose the feel of the bevels, static weight may become too high and it becomes more headlight, but that can also be an advantage.More weight in general equals more stability, at the cost of maneuverability.
