    Using half of the grip tape, you'll increase the BP by a bit. You'll either have to cut back on grip, or add lead tape to your racquet.

    But hey, holding the racquet at the very bottom is a good start too.

    Well, you've got to try it on your own to see if it suits your liking or not.

    Holding the racquet as low as possible would obviously help you produce more power than holding the racquet by the cone. Some basic physics, T=FD. Same force, more distance from the pivot ( balance point ? ) = more torque = we strike the shuttle harder.

    Using half of the grip tape, you'll increase the BP by a bit. You'll either have to cut back on grip, or add lead tape to your racquet.
    In my case, the BP lowered down to 295mm because I had to wrap the towel grip over an overgrip ( over the wooden handle ). Without that overgrip underneath the towel grip, I would get a swelling on my thumb.

    Default No tape on top of grip = Lin Dan

    Hallo guys,

    I just watched the match between Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei. Gillian and Poul Erik were discussing about the grip Lin Dan "constructs". No tape on top of his grip.

    My theory:
    To get the forefinger and thumb as loose as possible (a grip technique when hitting, which is quite commen, although not a vital technique), Lin Dan cuts the top tape out, to make sure that these fingers "get" a minimum contact possibilty, so they are very loose while hitting the ball.

    What do you think guys, why some players play with such a grip?

    Regards...

    A Hong Kong commentator, who is a badminton coach, explained it differently. LD's game is power-based and holding the racquet more towards the butt end is more efficient for power transmission. LD had a very bad tendency to hold the racquet higher up towards the cap. That barren patch of wood near the cap side is his way of "shortening" the handle by "extending" it towards the butt end. He learned this from Taufik.

    Bad stringer - you will break the racquet
    Mishit badly, you will break the racquet
    clash- you will break the racquet.

    Why would you want to use LD's tension?
