But it really needs to be done. Work on a grip for your FH and a grip for your BH (assuming its one handed). You might find a less extreme grip on the BH might feel more comfortable, something like an Eastern BH.
And of course find a grip for serves, whether its conti (thats not a bad one to get used to for serve), and then its a case of practicing the grip changes during a rally and hitting so it becomes second nature.
And it does become second nature, trust me, just over time.
ok. So at least I know taht its supposed to be done if i want to be as effective as possible. i feel sw is best for my fh. i seem to get most control/spin/power overall from this on FH
