Hi there,

Do you find that the handle too small for a good firm grip?

For your comments.

Thanks

too many gaps there for me. I bring my hand down the blade more so it sits close to my hand and the handle is long. I have more control and the blade is lighter when I flick my wrist. doesn't look like you sanded your blade yet either. btw nice stiga. what rubber you using?

Hi Doc,

Thanks for the comments.

It is not a stiga blade, but Sword (china made), not sanded yet .

FH using H3 Neo, BH just changed to Xiom Vega Pro.

looks fine to me. do whatever is comfortable.

i tended towards narrow handled blades and held further back like yours because it was easier to rotate the blade angle in the hand for rpb

eventually went to cut down FL blades because the handle was even thinner

probably keep in mind i was full time rpb. no tpb at all.

If I'm not wrong for RPB the wrist do the turn .
Grip should be firm.

if your wrist only does the turn you'll never be able to rpb block

I'm have no learned with RPB block yet.
Mostly use FB to block and ball mostly over the table; angle problem i think, blade not closed enough?

I've always found that despite whether you grip tightly around the neck or looser up the handle, it is VERY important to support the thumb index with the other 3 fingers on the BH side. All fingers curled, one finger on the rubber, 2 or 3 some kind of support is needed on the BH side to match the position of the thumb and index finger !

Can anyone confirm on that ?
