    Hi,

    The answer is the fact that they choke very high up the handle. You normally notice that they choke up high when they are at the net. This is because it enables them to have faster racket speed for quick kills at the net. Having the grip that high enables them to hold it that high for quick kills at the net, and makes sure that the racket doesn't slip in the hand.

    I think Yonix should start thinking about making a new model with longer grips targeting on double games, and ask Candra and Sigit as the consultants. Looks like it's really an advantage for the front player.

    The MP 100 does have a higher than normal handle . It is or suppose to lean towards doubles play hence the idea of a balanced racquet.

    Um but I'd hardly consider mp100 as a doubles racquet, maybe I am just wrong.

    Look at the way Candra and Sigit wrap the grip, I don't think MP100's grip is long enough.

    Looks like they are using mp99(90) instead since mp100 is red. Unless they painted it differently...

    that is pretty cool wrapping job, maybe give that a try, save a step from trimming the grip too.

    I think it's very likely that the current method of extending the
    grip wrapping is the most optimal solution since lengthening
    the actual grip would cause a drastic and probably unacceptable
    shift in the balance of the racquet. A lot of forward momentum
    (and power) would be lost due to the "light-headedness" of the
    racquet and the extreme stiffness caused by such a short shaft.

    Hmm... perhaps they could come up with a space-age material
    that's light (under 1.2g for 3 inches of section), flexible (to allow
    the shaft to flex through it), yet firm to grip (for control and durability).
    It would be used to make the 'extension' of the grip while the 'normal'
    section would still be the traditional wood. The shaft would go right
    through this special part of the grip and attach to the wooden part in
    the normal way. The extension part would have a smaller diameter
    than the regular part of the grip (for weight/balance and air resistance
    reasons). However, there would be cost implications to this kind of design...
