Is the handle of the racket really that short? Some reviews said it was to short for a two-hander....can someone give me the measurement in inches for the length (If possible)


Thanks! :)

Look at this pic, and you can see it's short. Definitely too short for a two handed backhand. I use a classic one handed backhand, so I like the handle size just fine :D

Only thing I hate on my 4 Head MG Prestige rackets is the grip shape though :(

It's short but not a problem for my two-hander. I also use an overgip that goes slightly above the main grip. I notice no problems whatsoever when using it during a match. Nice frames.

I replaced the Hydrosorb grip with a leather grip. It feels better now.

Ofcourse they do..Different hand sizes and different spacing between players fingers for each backhand

It's about 6 and 3/4" from the bottom of the handle up to the rubber collar on my MG Prestige. I have pretty big hands in addition to being a lefty. So I just buy another replacement grip, have it wrapped lefty and a little higher on the handle. Problem solved.
