What do you use to measure the grip size of a racquet?
I’m guessing most of you a sewing measuring tape. That’s what I used until I got a simple measuring device from the USRSA about 20 years ago.
The numbers were wearing off, so I decided to make one for myself. In the process, I made some improvements and wanted to share my redesigned prototype model called the Grip Sizer!
Features of the Grip Sizer
- Just wrap it tightly around the grip and measure.
- I made it with vellum paper, which works well since it is translucent, thin, and stronger than paper.
- It can measure sizes 3-0/8 to 6-0/8.
- It’s only about 8” inches in length, so you won’t need to use a roll of sewing measuring tape.
Do you want your own Grip Sizer?
I’ll be happy to make one for you! Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me where to mail it!
No charge . . . just a small token for thanking you for subscribing to my AM Stringing newsletter/YouTube channel.
