    I noticed that dunlop racquet handles are rather short. The PS tour 90 has a much longer handle while the PS 6.0 85 is somewhere in between. Does handle length have any effect on how a racquet plays? I am only refering to standard length racquets here.

    Since I primarily hit two hands off of both sides, I prefer longer handle. A friend of mine hits one hand off of both sides and prefers a shorter handle.

    Point being, to me, it is best summarized in one word, preference.
