So do combat this hand pain, does anyone have any suggestions or should I try one of these shock shield grips as opposed to the firm leather?
That smaller grip size may be encouraging you to have bad technique. I've been pulling off the ball on my forehands lately trying to create too much topspin and I think that has been causing me wrist pains.
