    I just got a Dunlop HM 200g and felt that the handle/grip is a little too short for my 2 hand bh. Any suggestions on how to increase the grip length?

    If I am not mistaken there are two seperate handle issues being discussed here.

    Atpat is discussing the length of the Handle and Flash is discussing the actually Grip size itself.

    I'll quickly touch on both.

    As far as length, you could perhaps trying regripping the Racquet and grip it as high as possible, up until the throat starts. If that is already the case you could always have the Racquet Professionally customized. However you'd want to keep in mind that that would alter the weight and balance.

    As far as Grip size itself, you could have your Racquet Professionally customized to your size of preference. However I would not suggest that as a first option. Your likely best bet would be to try a Heat Shrink sleeve and go up either one size or a half size. Please keep in mind that it will slightly round out the shape of the handle, thus lessening the Bevel definition. A link to those are here...

    Hope that helps,

    grip the racquet a little lower w/ your bottom hand to give your top hand a little more room, or wrap your grip higher so that you can grip your top hand closer to the throat.

    Put your hands together in you 2hb. That makes your backhand more stable!:D
    When I don't hit nice backhands it depens on the fact that my hands are slipping away from each other.

    nah im talkin but the length of the grip, sry i didnt state it more clearly, the short handle causes me to "scrunch" (for lack of a better term) my hand together which i guess in turn is givin me wrist problems in my right wrist
