Changing your Forehand Grip in the Middle of the Point
This is a PBI thing, where you use your left hand to manipulate the grip and keep your swing normal. I never thought about this until we talked about it. It makes sense. For the low ball, a flatter grip like the continental is better than the Western or Semi. For the middle height ball, anything goes. For the high ball, the Western or semi rule. And for really slow balls, I like the Western.
BUT if the pace of the ball during the point is too high, this is moot.
my advice, stay with the semi 80% of the time.
