Hi guys.

So earlier today, I switched from penhold to shakehand, and my spin and backside were a lot better. My forehand and smashes were a bit worse though. But in general I was playing better. Should I keep playing shakehand and just practice my forehand, or should I switch back to penhold? Lukas

Hi Lukas,

If it feels more comfortable stay with it for a while.  Give it a week or more though before you make a decision.  Often when we make a change it all feels good because it is new.  Let that novelty factor wear off and then see what you think.
