Can someone explain to me the different grips in relation to the continental grip? I've seen the post with the pictures of different grips, but I'm still not getting it. The eastern grip is the grip like you're shaking hands with the handle and the head is perpendicular to the ground, right? And to hold the continental grip is to hold it like an eastern grip and rotate clockwise so the head is in the 1 - 6 o'clock position. what about the other grips? Am i right with the continental and eastern grip? I use different grips for certain shots and returns. I would just like to know the names of the grips. Thanks!
