Usually I use Pan grip as forehand grip, because I don't know how to swing it, forehand grip is like we're holding an axe, isn't it? If we're using Axe wi swing it from behind to front so it can cut things, but how in forehand grip? do we swing it from behind to the front, if we do it the side of the frame will hit the shuttle instead of the string, isn't it? can you help me about how to swing the forehand grip?

Thanks Kwun This new version of the guide also has some discussion about grips that I hope will be useful.

2. I use a racket without extra overgrip, so that the bevels are visible.

Ideally, you should be facing the net side on, with your head turned left (if you are right handed) to face the net. It's a bit like being on a skatebord, looking and moving forwards, but standing sideways. If you hit the shuttle standing sideways, your racket face should be facing in the correct direction.

When you do an overhead forehand (say, a clear) with the correct forehand grip, then you will swing the racket towards the shuttle as if you were going to hit it with the side of the frame.
But during the swing, you pronate your forearm (rotate it inwards) so that the racket strings will hit the shuttle straight. This movement creates lots of power.
After contact with the shuttle, the forearm will continue to pronate. At the end of your stroke motion, your racket should be facing out to the right.
So this is the movement:
- Start of swing: racket facing in to the left
- Hitting the shuttle: racket facing forwards
- End of stroke: racket facing out to the right
It is a smooth movement, but with sudden acceleration as you are about to hit the shuttle.
The movement may be likened to throwing a ball. Try throwing a shuttle from the baseline across the net, then use the same motion for your clears. Just don't let go of the racket

When I look at the figures in page 3 of Gollum's article (the forehand grips), i notice the index finger is placed quite low (close to the hand). Do you think it's better (or at least more universal) to stretch the index finger a little bit in the forehand grip? IMO, that would make manoeuvring of the racket easier

But if the follow-after is immediately across the body, the accuracy of the smash will decrease.
