Why do most people in this table tennis generation stop using traditional Penhold? I still use traditional Penhold, and rarely see the top players using this grip?
I feel it is because the Penhold grip has limitations on the backhand side.
Since the speed of the game has increased over the years it is more difficult to cover the court with your forehand predominantly.
Xu Xin is still near the top of the World ranking list as a penholder but his footwork is exceptional.
