One of the guys I was playing against commented afterwards that I had an extreme grip in that I grip low on the handle so that my pinky is just on edge the bottom. I tried moving my palm up almost a centimeter, so that my pinky is above the flare/butt and have found that it's made a significant impact! I'm told my shot is less wristy looking (unintended benefit) and it feels much more controllable. There is a drop down in power but I need to build that back up from my trunk; and I'm not worried about that. What is difficult is that I use a 2h-backand. And now my left hand is gripping the throat; How far down on the grip do most people hold the racquet? What do you do w/ your bhs? Do you slide the right hand down to make room? Do you become accustomed to it?
