    Hey, if you are happy with your game, great. If there is a part of you game that really needs improvement go for it.

    Everyone seems to have a different experience. For some their is a dramatic immediate improvement in some aspect of their game at the same time it hinders another. They are so excited about the improvement they become determined to understand a master the other stroke (forehand, backhand, serve,whatever), that is giving them trouble. Some customers rock and roll from the start. I think it is a function of "just how well they move their hand on the handle now.

    Best regards,

    Very good. Being aware of and controlling the racquet face angle is critical on all levels of play. Usually players using the PVG's who want to move from the WF to the SW will do just that. They place their hand in the SW position correctly but revert back to the hand wrist angle of the W grip, thus opening up the racquet face. It is just the opposit for people moving from the EF to the SW, oops, right into the net.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for the comments

    You must use a different transition in going from the forehand to your backhand then most people.

    Thanks for your comments.

    sorry to revive and old thread... anyone hear from Tim (aka Ed) in a while? I've been trying to buy his power v-grip product, but the tennisgeometrics.com site is down, and the secondprime.com site is missing pics, and ordering links don't seem to work...

    Dark Knight, I use the wonder wedge/power v grip and I do feel like one can get the most of an eastern type forehand by gripping the racquet with the wedge facing forward, palm against the non wedge side. Your fingers really lock onto it, a very secure forehand grip.

    I am not sure it will improve your game ...it may actually ruin your game......in fact the learning curve is VERY steep and it took me a long time to get used to.

    But the increase in power was addictive so I stuck with it.

    I can't promise it will improve your game but I can promise it will dramatically change your game for better or worse.

    Try it wedge facing forward, the last 3 fingers of the hand, first joint down from fingertips, on the center of the wedge, and the index finger srpead in a pistol tyoe grip, base knuckle of index finger on bevel 3 or 3.5 or so. Heel of hand should fall on bevel 4 or so.
