    I hear everyone talking about different grips like Western, but I have no idea what this is about. Can anyone fill me in?

    yes, it does, it will affect the way the ball travels, there are 3 types of grips, eastern, semi.western and western, ill try to find a guide to show you them, you can google it, but i had one, darn i lost it srry man but im pretty sure you will find some on google

    anyways:

    Eastern: kinda flat

    Semi-Western: Pace + top

    Western(the one i use): generates a lot of top

    correct me if im wrong ^^
