Can somebody tell me the benefits of a smaller vs a larger grip. I am in between. I know a smaller grip is easier for serving.
Any advice would be appreciated

Smaller grip upside: better wrist snap, more power.
Smaller grip downside: wristier shots can lead to wrist pain.

Larger grip upside: more control and stability.
Larger grip downside: a tad less power and must grip it harder, possibly causing wrist pain.

Better to use a smaller grip and build it up if you're not sure. Just about nothing you can do safely to downsize a big grip w/o something drastic.
