    Have you ever taken off the original grip of a paddle.

    Correction: I didn’t watch closely, I did start from the correct side of the tapered end. —
    Superseded comment:
    When you start wrapping the tape, it seems to me the tapering should be positioned the other way, with the inclined part at the end of the handle. You do the opposite. If you started as I just described, then you would not need to change the inclination of the tape.

    Excellent video Barrett, thank you. I have a quick question for you: the grip size of my paddle is 4 1/4. If I remove the original manufacturer’s grip wrap and regrip it with new tape, will it help in reducing the grip size? (4 1/4 is a bit big for my hand) I’m trying to make the grip smaller.

    I’m just about ready to order my 1st Pickleball paddle and my last consideration is grip size. The paddle comes with a standard 4 1/4" size grip and I had played with some loaners from friends which I believe were using a standard size grip. I researched grip sizes on the Internet and found 3 ways to determine your grip size: 1) hold the paddle and see if there is a snug fit when you insert your other hands index finger between your fingertip & palm, 2) measure the distance between the middle crease in your palm to the tip of the ring finger, and 3) by height which is 5’9" and above should use a 4 1/2" grip. By all three methods, i should be using a 4 1/2" grip but I’m afraid this overgrip will increase the grip size. Should i buy the 4 1/4" ( been using this size from loaners anyways) and if i decide to overgrip it than it won’t be an issue with it being too big? Anyone having this problem?

    Good information, however I was looking for a video of actually "re gripping" the paddle. Do you have anything like that where you remove the factory grip and re-grip with a new one? I’m not a real fan of the over-grip mainly because my hands aren’t that big and I like to keep the overall grip size as small as I can.

    You didn’t regrip… you over gripped.
