    Can somebody tell me the benefits of a smaller vs a larger grip. I am in between. I know a smaller grip is easier for serving.
    Any advice would be appreciated

    Smaller grip upside: better wrist snap, more power.
    Smaller grip downside: wristier shots can lead to wrist pain.

    Larger grip upside: more control and stability.
    Larger grip downside: a tad less power and must grip it harder, possibly causing wrist pain.

    Better to use a smaller grip and build it up if you're not sure. Just about nothing you can do safely to downsize a big grip w/o something drastic.
