    Contrary to popular belief that wrapping the cone completely with grip will give you control, leaving it unwrapped will actually provide a flatter surface for easier gripping, necessary for quick, nimble and manoeuvrable strokes across the full technique and power spectrum. Wrapping the cone completely only helps you to wipe your sweat from your hand but makes it difficult for your fingers and hand to find their proper orientation.
    err...
    I disagree, wrapping the grip up the cone gives more grip and more control...for me.
    I had a test-night some months ago: played doubles with a regular gripped racket, and my thumb kept slipping of the cone when I played at the net...

    if all I did with my thubm up the cone was serve I'd agree...

    The shape of the cone has changed over the years, from being just a finishing item to one that is now more useful for quick, nimble and manoeuvrable strokes. As a matter of fact you can even extend the new shape cone to the first one inch of the wooden handle at the cone end by stripping this part to bare wood, ala a bit of LIn Dan. This will give you even better playability.
