    i could no way damage the shaft
    the only thing it could do is modify the balance point of the racket
    making it more head light

    ok I re-gripped my racket with 102-ex grip up the shaft to just before it says made in japan (ns9900) original grip removed
    Here's some of my thoughts:
    Recieving service in doubles is easier
    Net shots are more presise
    I think it's overall very nice for doubles
    Singles play: again very nice, I used to think I preferred a thick grip but now I delist that I actually prefer a thin grip
    I think from now on I will grip all my rackets like this

    I've always gripped mine that high, all personal preference!

    Do you hold the racket higher too?

    I've also been doing this for a while. I find it easier to kill shots off at the net when gripping the racket slightly higher (where the cone connects to the shaft).

    that is because as you hold the racket towards the middle it decreases swing weight. making it more maneuverable

    lol that's not a over grip then, tennis overgrips are just like badminton ones, no glue except at the bottom tip. tennis replacement grips replace the old original grip and that does always have a strip of glue end to end on the grip. do not use tennis replacement grips on a badminton racket, very bad.

    Question

    I've got a tennis replacement grip on my Lethal 60 because I really like bulky grips (covered by an overgrip). Fills my hand and reduces unintentional movement of racquet at the grip level (which gets magnified at the head level).

    @ Pickles: why's a tennis replacement grip "very bad"?

    The size of them is pretty ridducoulus and makes you lose a lot of power unless you got gianourmus hands...

    I've actually got average sized hands (18cm long x 10cm wide). Had been using skinny grip for past couple of years until rediscovered the joy of a big grip in the last few months.

    Can you hit a back to back backhand clear with that?

    Not overhead (but can't do that with any grip/racquet) but anything below 45 degrees above the horizontal I can. Guess I'll infer you think that grip size is important in backhand clears?

    Yes and no, I guess it depends on the player. It helped me a lot when I learned how to hit a proper backhand to go down in grip size (I had 2 replacement grips on top of each other, my only excuse is I was young ) partly because it was easier to do a bevel grip and partly because I could get more power from the wrist/tightning around the grip.

    But again, I guess it depends on the player.

    Yes you can find overgrips with the strip... I played competitive junior tennis for 4 years and tried many different grips in that time. Of course that was 20 years ago and I haven't played tennis regularly in 15 years so I'm not sure whether they are still available. I also know the difference between overgrip and replacement grip.
