    Default Train Your Fingers!

    Wait for your hand to heal, then use a hand grip to strengthen your fingers. This allows for looser grip, and less effort for more power. You're probably holding the racquet too tightly. That's what Dominic Soong (former world #2) told me, and it works phenomenally.

    You jumped the gun by using a racquet quite unlike the ones you used. Nothing beats the excitement of a new racquet. However, you should give it some time and just warm up with it often by doing clears. Different racquets require different timing, as factors such as string tension and head bias balance will affect your swing.

    I recall the same issue many players had with the AT-700 when it first came out. Its very head heavy bias was unique from previous YY models.

    mp99 isnt x-stiff, it's barely stiff at all.

    No problems for me using the ns9k type x. Try giving your arm a good day of rest and stretch!

    It was extra stiff when it first came out. Yonex is just too lazy to change it...

    OHMAHGAWDZ: Ya, I also think I gripped my racket too tightly. Hand grip? Do you mean those elastic spring equipment? Thanks!

    Actually, I went to see a doctor and fortunately, there wasn't any bone or wrist fractures after I had an X-ray done. I had sprained my nerve leading to the ring finger but it is healed now. Just hope it doesn't recur in the future. *sigh*

    By hand grip, I mean something like the image below. You can buy them at almost any major department store. I had a bad pain in my hand before, couldnt play for 2 weeks. After healing and using one of these for awhile, it hasn't returned, and I have more power. Try to hold it as close to the tips of your fingers as possible, it gives the right muscle groups the most work. Grip closer and closer to your fingertips as you get stronger. Hope this helps!
