It's good aside from that bubble at the butt, or at least i think it's one, can't say for sure since my mon is crappy lol but that tape at the top is strechy, or should be since almost every tape i've used is, cuz that way it can strech and you can make one circle instead of climbing higher on the racquet and it'll comform to the curves when it is streched but good job otherwise

What Do They Mean?
It's my first few times playing after abstinence for almost 18 years.
I decided to get a new racket because apparently my Carbonex 8 from yoinks ago, with a metal frame, should be buried in the ground and prayed to instead of being used for actually playing Badminton.
I had trouble with the Li Ning S2 grip. I initially thought the 'wrong' feeling was because it was a defensive racket instead of an offensive one. The nice owner said she would change a racket for me if I really couldn't get used to it.
When I went back with my old Carb for comparison, the 2 shopkeepers immediately exclaimed that the old Carb handle was wrapped with a grip too large for me. They said this is something more tailored for a man's handling and they concluded that perhaps it wasn't the racket that was the problem, rather it was me not being used to the S2 grip of a Li Ning racket.
Nevertheless, I got the new racket changed and they wrapped it with a thick grip and told me to try it out.
I thought the 'wrong' feeling of the first new racket was due to the heaviness of the racket head, and not the grip.
I was thinking I might have to add weights in order to get that 'lovin feeling' for a heavy headed racket again.
Qn now is... do grips really affect your style of play?
I can't use my old Carb 8 anymore coz my right arm hurts like crazy after an hour of play.

of course, the spec. of balanced/head-heavy/head-light rackets, may affect the way you smash/drive quite a lot if your (basic) technique is not that stabilized. Isn't it improving your way of shuttle-hitting is more essential than getting a comfortable racket? (I have such injuries too years before as I want to win a game with an borrowed top racket without proper technique. )
Once recently, I've got an user-friendly racket (Arc 7) to test different grips, from thin -> thick -> very thick -> very thin ... I see that it affects my result or comfortableness in every focus shot. Surely that is not about the same Magic got from switching Arc 7 to Arc Z, but I certainly earn more advantages with different grips, that would return different signals from my fingers to feel more control to the net play or over-head push. (and, plain surfaced / cushioned one would be different to my palm's skin, too)
But realistically, most of my friends only choose their grips with nothing more than a good color available in a store.
