    Default Hand size

    hey all,

    just a curious query. what difference do you think hand size has on the game?

    personally, i have women hands. (crafted by years of piano and low fat intake ) but I still find that i can play badminton quite well.

    but a lot of my friends have much larger hands and they seem to have an easier time generating power. while I can still generate the same (even more) power than them, it seems my form requires more biomechanics and technique than strength.

    thanks for any input!

    I don't think it makes much difference, as long as your grip size is suitable.

    Lee Jae Bok has tiny little Korean hands, but have you seen any of his finger power demonstrations? He could crush my larger Western hands like crumpling paper.

    ...not that he would (he's too nice).
