    Hmmm I always thought I held it right, but I noticed a couple people (who are better than myself) holding it slightly differently.

    Wondering if anyone can show me a picture or video or somesuch of how exactly you're supposed to hold it...

    I suck royally at describing stuff with words... but... I put my thumb up along the side of the handle (thin side) with my palm around the middle of the wider side and my fingers wrapped around the handle....

    Anyway, thanks.

    Eh????
    Well i dont have a picture of it but ill discribe it to you
    1)just put out your hand as if ur gonna do a hand shake
    2)bend ur thumb over a bit
    3)slide the thinner part of the handle to excess skin between thumb and index
    4) then grab
    thats the way ppl teach me but i hold differently too

    Haha... whoops.

    Under that guide, the grip titled "Pandle-grip Variation" is the way I've been holding my racquet normally...

    Anyway thanks.
