    I just noticed in the picture, is Lin Dan bending the feather slowing it down?

    Which tournament is this? hmmmm.....I thought umpires don't allow players to adjust shuttles. Is Lin Dan cheating?

    He's not bending the feathers down, he's just straightening them.

    Since the below post, I've gone smaller and smaller in grip size. I originally started using quite a large grip, G4 with 3 overgrips, double overlapped. Now I'm down to an actual G5!

    The G5 is quite a small grip relative to my hand size but I get more feel, more control. I've changed my preference with time.

    +better wrist control (whip)
    +less expensive (buy less grips )

    -less power
    -may cause pain in the arm because smaller and you'll grip tighter (that's why I say go normal size or only slightly smaller)

    This of course is all, in general.

    And you can do those deadly dink AC and AD Dink Shots with the smaller grip size.
