Why do both guys a taping their raquet til half of the shaft?Does it give them more power?
im thinking its used to choke up on their racquet.
The answer is the fact that they choke very high up the handle. You normally notice that they choke up high when they are at the net. This is because it enables them to have faster racket speed for quick kills at the net. Having the grip that high enables them to hold it that high for quick kills at the net, and makes sure that the racket doesn't slip in the hand.
Nah...I think it 'coz they were too lazy to take out the scissors and trim the grip
I think Yonix should start thinking about making a new model with longer grips targeting on double games, and ask Candra and Sigit as the consultants. Looks like it's really an advantage for the front player.
The MP 100 does have a higher than normal handle . It is or suppose to lean towards doubles play hence the idea of a balanced racquet.
Um but I'd hardly consider mp100 as a doubles racquet, maybe I am just wrong.
Look at the way Candra and Sigit wrap the grip, I don't think MP100's grip is long enough.
Looks like they are using mp99(90) instead since mp100 is red. Unless they painted it differently...
that is pretty cool wrapping job, maybe give that a try, save a step from trimming the grip too.
I think it's very likely that the current method of extending the
grip wrapping is the most optimal solution since lengthening
the actual grip would cause a drastic and probably unacceptable
shift in the balance of the racquet. A lot of forward momentum
(and power) would be lost due to the "light-headedness" of the
racquet and the extreme stiffness caused by such a short shaft.
Hmm... perhaps they could come up with a space-age material
that's light (under 1.2g for 3 inches of section), flexible (to allow
the shaft to flex through it), yet firm to grip (for control and durability).
It would be used to make the 'extension' of the grip while the 'normal'
section would still be the traditional wood. The shaft would go right
through this special part of the grip and attach to the wooden part in
the normal way. The extension part would have a smaller diameter
than the regular part of the grip (for weight/balance and air resistance
reasons). However, there would be cost implications to this kind of design...
does ani1 have a mp racket? I got 1 for 100 bucks from my coach. It is MP T-200 Ashaway U.S.A.
Anyone knows of it?
