Big grip VS Small grip?
Which one you prefer? and why?
07-06-2013, 05:36 PM #2
Big if you're a power player, small if you're a deceptive placement player. I prefer medium.

There is no big or small, only corrected grip size.

Extremely thin (small) for deception and quick movement.

Go for the correct grip size

already post the review of the K6000. I haven't check for the new stock of the X90

I think this is different for each person, we all have different size hands also right?
I prefer medium. Wood, protection tape, thick overgrip.

I think it depends on liking, level of play, technique and the size of your palm. I have small hands and use Yonex G4 with a layer of towelgrip on wood for summer and a layer of thin overgrip with less overlapping for winter.
From my experiences I lose control and can't change the grips quickly if I use a too thick grip. It offers a strange feeling like holding a tin of coke and I cant use fingerpower properly. Maybe I have small girlish hands. I noticed only disadvantanges if I use a too thick grip. Too thin grips can cause tennis elbows, but I never had problems.

From that picture, I advise having a smaller grip diameter. YMMV.

I agree. That grip seems a bit big.

Funny thing. At my club all are laughing about my small grip.
I must add that I grapped it loose on the picture. If I grap it tight my ring and middlefinger touch my palm clearly.

A little on the big side (G5 stock grip with G08 0.75mm):
Perfect size (G5 stock grip with G11/G09 0.6mm)
Of course the bigger one feels very nice and cushy but on certain occasions, I feel like the racket is also going to fly off when I do an extra large and fast swing!
