    No, this is not a good idea.

    Extending the index finger up the racket is something that many beginners do. They feel that it gives them more control.

    In fact, this inhibits the movement of their wrist and forearm. It can lead to or aggravate tendonitis.

    It is "universal" only in the sense that it is a common mistake

    For a neutral holding grip, however, this is effective. A neutral holding grip uses the index finger and thumb to faciliate rapid changes of grip. But this grip should never be used for hitting the shuttle.

    The neutral holding grip is not described in the grips guide, but it will be discussed in version 2.

    This what i referred to by saying 'forehand grip'. Maybe i am wrong, and these should be called neutral .

    Well, they are not extending the index finger, but wrapping it round the handle. No problem.

    There is a slight change that needs to be made to the grips guide forehand grip to reflect this placement of the index finger (thumb between index and middle fingers for smashing). If this is what you are referring to, then I agree completely with you

    But nothing so extreme as extending the finger up the racket handle.
