    i have tried it without grip, as i tested a racket after i restrung it but before i regripped it. by being able to grip on the bare wood you do get a LOT more feel, and quite a bit more leverage so power is increased quite considerably. but obviously at the price of comfort. after a while my thumb did feel quite sore, and my palm also got a bit sore.

    but definatly quite alot of gains. iv not had time to properly experiment and test out this idea tho

    How about instead of having the wood exposed, why not put another kind of grip, something thinner perhaps, near the cone. One can still get a different feel from holding the racket near the end of the grip than holding close to the cone.

    I'm actually going to try that as soon as I get a Karakal PU grip.

    How does he do net/drive shots - holding the wood?

    Look at the damage to the grip

    In a way, this set-up makes perfect sense. The last two or three fingers hold the racket, so they want maximum traction. The first two fingers make shots, so they want the most direct input and feedback.

    Isn't exposing the wood a bad idea since moisture (especially sweat) can easily absorbed by the wood and make it brittle and snap in the long run?

    Here's what I would do to try Lin Dan's grip: First, I'll cover the entire wood with electric tape. Then, I'll use whatever grip I prefer (PU) for the bottom half and I'll cover the exposed wood (now covered with electric tape) with a thinner overgrip. Thick grip at the bottom half and thin grip near the cone.

    For overhead/powerful strokes, I'll "feel" and hold on to the thick grip. For backhand/control/net kill shots, my thumb should reach for the thin grip.

    My version of Lin Dan's grip. I use a Karakal PU Touch grip to cover up 2/3 of the racket's grip. Notice that the wood is covered with electrical tape. I did not bother to cover the upper 1/3 with a thinner overgrip.

    I have been using that style of grip for as long as i can remember.

    With the barewood covered with the athletic tape and then the towel grip, i use it because

    1)It is far easier to change the grip once its worn out
    2)I seem to have much more control over the racket and i can generate good power
    3) When serving in doubles i can get the shuttle to just skim over the net.

    Isn't this a smarter thing for LD to do just in practice? I mean, what if he goes back to holding his racket higher up in the middle of a tournament and gets a splinter?
