    Default Fingers move down the handle after everybswing

    Hi guys.

    So im used to using The last 3 fingers to hold the racket. It feels good and im comfortable with it.

    The ony problem with this though, is that if i use he short grip, after every swing, my hand keeps moving further down the handle.

    Is it my technique or is my grip just slippery? Well ive changed the grip and its still happening...

    What grip are you using? Probably technique.

    It might be that the grip is too small for your hands, the grip is not "grippy" enough or technique.

    If you have very dry hands like I do, you may find that towel grips are useless. In which case try one of the tacky PU grips.

    I reckon the same as R20190. If you have too small of a grip, you can try to use underwrap to adjust the grip size to your liking.

    Some of my friends always re-use their old grip-tape by cutting in half horizontally, and then put it on the butt of the grip. This creates a larger butt which prevents your hand to slip downwards. It messes with the BP of course, but if you're not that sensitive about that, you could try it too.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    So just now i got home from working late and washed my hands...

    Then i dried it and decided to do some swining with the racket... And the racket stays firm!

    I guess when its dry its slippery??ive been using yonex overgrap from amazon... Today i bought a towel grip for the first time, and it made no difference... But after washing my hands and drying it, it feels perfect...
