              Comments about Gamma Full Size Build-up Sleeve:

              I don't own a heat gun so I was concerned I would not be able to get this to shrink properly but using a fairly inexpensive hair drier it worked fine. I think it may have gone quicker with a heat gun but it worked just fine. I would recommend.

                  • Q:

                    I have to build my grip two sizes up, I have used build up grip sleeve,
                    twice - piece of cake, but since original grip size was 4 5/8 (5) biggest available and now should be technically 4 7/8 (7) will new regular replacement grip fit on this new size of handle lengthwise, or do I need some special longer replacement grip to cover new increased handle. I am just afraid that regular replacement grip will be to short and I don't see by replacement grips any information about how long they are.

                      A:

                      The majority of OverGrips have more than enough length to accommodate longer handles. The grip can then be cut for a more custom fit.

                  • Q:

                    What is the inside diameter before shrink? Do you know what the shrink ratio is? How small does it shrink down to???
                    Asked on 5/26/2012 by Steve from Florida

                    • A:

                      The grips are 9.5 inches long, measured as 'full size." Every grip is manufactured larger than the racquet handle and will shrink accordingly as you heat and trim/mold the excess. The size you really want to be considering is the grip ratio, of which this product is measured in 1/8 inches, or one full grip size. You will need one of these for every 1/8 inch you want to increase your grip.

                      A:

                      The diameter of the grip sleeve is approximately 1” and the circumference is approximately 6.25”. It will fit right over the buttcap on any standard grip size. The sleeve will shrink down to fit snugly on any grip size and will increase the size of the grip by one full size.
