I have never played with Wilson racquets before; I've always played with Yonex and Prince. I decided to try the new kblade and I was excited to get the package from UPS today. I anxiously pulled out the racquet from the box and I was really surprised to find out just how short the Wilson grip is. I play with a two-handed forehand (weird, I know) but it felt like half of my top hand was off the grip. I compared it to me Yonex and it there was quite a difference. I packaged it right back up and sent it back; that short grip would drive me nuts! Are all Wilson racquets like that? How do all the other two-handed players play with them? Are any other manufacturers known for short grips?

Had you even played with yet, before you posted this thread?

The grip on the K90 felt the same way when using a 2 handed backhand. I had to regrip the replacement grip near the W logo just so I can fit 2 hands on the grip. However when I use the APDC+ the grip length is perfect. I don't even have to extend the grip or overgrip.
