Predominantly Eastern on forehand but will at times use a continental for slice approaches or if rushed or move a bit more Western if going for more topspin.

Only guy representing the con. well it looks like I'm a dying breed. Thats the way I was taught so i rarely doubt that I change but i have no problems playing people that use the eastern, semi, or full western.

SemiWestern for most forehands, and a 2h bh that is WEIRD (eastern backhand bottom with western top hand)

continetal volleys & serve
Extreme eastern backhand grip (1 hander)
