Lightbulb What they said...

...additionally, if you decide to make a change, even difficult changes become easier is you know why you're making them. Everybody who said "It's not just a grip change" is right on the money. You have to have a clean swing path, too. But just to prove that Conti is the way to go, crank up your service motion and stop it right where you contact the ball. Use your non-racket hand to go from an Eastern (or, worse yet SW) forehand grip to Conti. You'll quickly see that with anything but a Conti, (a) you'll have to do something incredibly funky with your swing just to get the serve in the box and (b) there's no way you're ever going to get consistency, pace, spin, or direction on the serve...
