Good morning Pingskills Team!
First of all, I would like to thank you guys for providing so much information about Table Tennis and this has helped me take my table tennis to a whole new level. However, I have had a very strong forehand before and the backhand was not as controlled as I wanted. I have a shakehand grip and used to hold the bat a bit higher and tighter which allowed me to have a good control over FH but sometimes the BH blocks off topspin used to fly off the table! I have seen your videos regarding the grip but it dint help as much.
Could you please make a more detailed video on shakehand grip? especially the ''V'' that forms between the thumb and the index finger? and where the handle should touch this ''V''? I think this part is really crucial. Also could you please share Coach Alois's and Jeff's grip (if possible with photos)? I would really appreciate if you could answer this otherwise I would be stuck in this ''not so sure how to improve grip'' situation which would hinder my growth.
Take a look at these pictures which I think will help you.
This is the grip from side on.
This is the Backhand side

Hope this helps.
