View Full Version : Moved grip to more SW, now deltoid is sore, is this right?

I used to use a mild semi-western grip. Now it's more of a true semi western with the whole base knuckle of my index finger on bevel 4. As a result my stance is a little more open.

I was hitting too flat before, now I have the option for more spin which is what I need for consistency.

However I've noticed that that the deltoid on my hitting arm is now very sore after playing.

Is this to be expected when hitting with a more open stance and a grip closer to western? Or is my technique just bad and I'm hurting myself?

Videos say a lot more than words in these cases, we can't tell you anything if we can't see what your doing. :confused:
