Went onto court for a few hours to try out playing with a full western/extreme grip.

My normal grip is a semi western i thought but i think its a little more extreme than that, so looking at it, when i played yesterday it was with an extreme western (I think).

Anyway I really enjoyed it- great obviously for spin so you can hit higher over the net and I really enjoyed coming on to a short or mid court ball (which has been a problem for me trying to put the ball away). Finding angles was also a key positive as the ball drops so quickly.

The only negative for me was flattening out a shot taking a ball early, with your opponents spin added too I was hitting the net. I think I can live without that for the sake of consistency, anyway I would often do the same with the semi western or hit long!!

Got a match tonight so Im going to stick with it and see how it goes.
