    I use Eastern FH, and Continental, and on both of these, my pinky is hanging off the end. It gets really wristy (and out of control) so I've been trying to stop.

    How about ya'll?

    At the end, but not with the pinky hanging off. I love to crush balls at those pinky hanging guys. Stop holding it that far down, adam.

    On serve, many Pros are that way "pinky hanging off the butt cap" but this will cause blister between the pinky and the ring finger! I would advise you to keep the pinky on the edge of the butt cap -- half on half off --.

    On forehand ground stroke, some Pros would hold the butt cap area within the palm area!

    i like my pinky to be on the part that gets wider on the buttcap, it feels really stable there.
