    And for those who wonder how to thicken the butt cap to get the grip end bulge, this is how you do it using athletes' tape

    Not the same as building up that ridge, which is better at preventing your palm from sliding off the end, even if you gripped it loosely.

    J. Lo or Kim Kardashian butt?

    As for the butt cap area, it helps to prevent grip slips unless one builds an anatomical bulge down the middle of the grip.

    by adding little weight at end of but cap also increase maneuverability for headheavy racket.

    by adding weight at the end of butt cap to head heavy racquets makes the shaft flex a bit more than it should be originally.

    according to Ants LCW style overgrip video, i always thought of it as to avoid smashing your fingers against the floor when you dive for a shot

    to me though its a gentle reminder for me to either to shift my grip downwards to smash or move upwards for net shots

    That is correct, because the head weight does not change at all. Thus when the racquet may seem to be less head heavy due to the additional weight at the other end, the head weight will still follow through nonetheless. The disadvantage to this is that the overall weight of the racquet will also increase and for those who are not used to heavy racquets it affects agility and maneuverability.

    Hi guys,

    I think the 19 kg concept is that it can hold a object which weighs 19kg in the string bed without the shaft breaking off.I dont think that it can be strung up to 42 pounds as then it will be similar to a tennis racket,no way you can play badminton holding the racket with two hands.Gutting the racket to such an extent will cause serious injuries when playing badminton with that racket.

    Thanks.

    No one has actually claimed that the shaft flexibility can actually change. Honestly you have not read what the others posted regarding this subtle feel of the shaft flexing more, and why.

    On the other hand I wonder how adding more overall weight to the racquet (especially at the butt end) can you actually increase manoeuvrability of a racquet when the whole thing physically feels heavier in the hand as you claimed:

    i'm not expert to explain how, but just take simple example..let say u want hammering a nail by holding at the end of handle, do u find easy (in term of accuracy) to hammer it?.. and now u add weight at end of handle to counter balance the weight of hammer. then without losing power, u will feel easy to hammer the nail right?...

    No. By doing so the hammer will now feel heavier and I will have to rest after a less number of hits to regain energy. There is still no difference in accuracy unless I hold the handle closer to the hammer head and even then there is no need to add counter weight at the other end.

    If you don't believe me, use a weigh. Compare the overall weight between the hammer itself to the hammer plus whatever you want to add to it to make it seem less head heavy to you. Simple physics, really.

    The difference between a hammer and a racquet is that you can hold the hammer right in the middle to gain more control of the head weight. With a racquet the handle grip has limited length and I doubt you can hold the racquet by the thin shaft.
