Lin Dan’s Secret Weapon

I think not many of us knew about this. But if you look carefully at Lin Dan’s way of wrapping his badminton grip , some of us might came to a conclusion that , that is the secret recipe of his winning streak. Just look at the way his badminton grip was wrapped. I am sure it was not an accident since he has the same style during few tournaments and I do not think it was because China’s factory has ran out of towel grip – that assumption is so ridiculous right !

So why does he chooses to wrap his racket in such an abnormal way ? According to some experts, there are a few reasons to that style

Reason No. 1 :  Lin Dan has once mentioned that he wanted to get used or just to teach himself to NOT hold his racket too near to the end of the grip.

Reason No. 2 : Again to teach or force himself to use the full length of the grip. This is to give more powerful shot since before this he was so used to hold his racket about halfway up the grip.

Reason No. 3 : Removing some tape on the grip (like Lin Dan’s method) can make the bottom part of the racket will become lighter and the head will become heavy. That technique is very good for attacking play. And racket with heavy head is how Lin Dan likes it.

So come take a closer look at how rare Lin Dan’s badminton grip is

Things you never knew about Badminton Grip

Have you ever thought whether all this while you are using the wrong badminton grip for your racket or you just do not care ? I used to be the latter until I came across this awesome website which has a complete guide on simply about “how-to-play-badminton“.

Reading through the articles and the know-hows on that page has given me a new perspective about badminton grip. Basically there are 2 types of badminton grip which I have never noticed; the THICKER type and the THINNER one. What are the differences, you may ask ? Well…

If you are player who likes to play attacks meaning that you like to do smash after smash and continue with another jumping smash then the thicker grip is perfect for you. This is because, that type of player needs to hold the handle very tight in order to give all the power and energy.  Thicker badminton grip will be very suitable for these types of players.

But if you are the type that like to show off your skills like doing badminton clears or badminton drops and like to engaged in a long rallies then the THINNER badminton grip is just for you. The reason behind it is that, such players need to hold their racket lightly not too tight. Holding the racket too tight will only lead to powerful stroke and gave too much power in your shot and that will only spoil your way of playing.

Therefore if you want to have an excellent control on your rackets and using a lot of wrist movement, a THINNER grip is the one that you should go for.

So how does the THICK and THIN badminton grip looks like physically.

THICK grip e.g. : Towel grip

THIN grip e.g. : Overgrip

[one_third]thin grip #3[/one_third][one_third]thin grip #2[/one_third][one_third_last]thin grip[/one_third_last]



Get the idea ?? So if your palm sweat a lot and at the same time you need something that can give you extra power while doing the jumping and smashing, go for towel grip. But if you into skills and need something light to control the racket mostly by using wrist movement then the overgrip is for you.

So after you own an awesome badminton racket or stylish badminton shoes, why not do yourself a favor and get the proper badminton grip. Trust us it will change the way you play.
