    Erm.. I want to ask.. is it better to hold the most bottom part of the handle/grip when I want to smash ? will be more powerful ? :)

    and for the defend and net play.. is it better to hold the most top part(near the cone) of the handle/grip when I want to defend and net play? :)

    Yeah, or at least that's what most people prefer. Move manoeuvrability by holding higher up the handle for fast paced drives. More power and reach by holding the racket at the base for smashing.
