I was just wondering who else out there uses extreme western grips? My grip on the forehand is just about halfway between a typical western grip and a Hawaiian grip. Just wondering who shares my style.
(I use a semi-western on the one-handed backhand)
Wow, that sounds like a pretty uncomfortable grip, but if it works for you then fair enough.
I've generally gotten more western on my forehand over the years, and more to the east on my backhand. I'm somewhere between semi-western and full western on the forehand, and classic eastern on the backhand so nothing too extreme from me I'm afraid.
