    Posted: 07/18/2021 at 7:23pm
Hi all,

I've noticed that when I play with pips on my backhand, I'm struggling to hold the bat securely between my thumb and my index finger - this seems to be due to the lower grip of the BH rubber where my index finger is resting. This leads me to squeeze my palm a bit more and get the stability from the handle itself, which reduces my mobility and creates extra tension in my forearm.

Anatomic blades seem to be more suitable for this - flared blades are actually even worse.

Have you encountered this as well? Do you know if there are any solutions?

Thanks

Blades with larger handles, straight handles, grip tape? I've never had grip issues with pips. If you are holding the blade correctly and the handle is sized to your hands it should not make a difference.

better not to hold the bat tight especially the handlle.
dont take the thumb index finger rule too literally. The idea behind it is to encourage a neutral 'ready' grip halfway between bh and fh.but really with a good relaxed grip {such that yr partner can pull the racket from yr hand) is best

consider Boll and how his fingers move as he plays
If you can forget about the racket in yr hand thats a good sign
good luck

Actually choppers do hold their paddles somewhat firm and tight (but not too tight). The blades are larger and heavier. Attacking grip is not the same as chopper's grip. Boll's grip is different from JSH's grip.

There is a video by Joo Sae Hyuk who explains the grip and everything... I am posting it here. It's really really good:
