Choose your perfect handle
EVERY HAND IS DIFFERENT – WHY ARE ALL GRIPS THE SAME?
We’ve all been there – you’ve found the perfect table tennis bat, but the handle just doesn’t fit. Too thick, too thin, too short, it simply doesn’t feel good in the hand or lacks the necessary grip – then you start to grind the handle yourself or optimize the shape a little with meters of grip tape, but that’s not really ideal.
That’s why we asked ourselves:
Why does everyone adapt to their grip instead of adapting the grip to their own hand?
Quite simple really, isn’t it? We have come up with the following system so that you can finally customize your rackets grip to your hand.
There is a choice of 7 straight and 4 concave shapes, each in two different lengths and thicknesses. This allows you to adapt the handle perfectly to your own hand.

2 handle lengths
Each of our handle shapes is available in two different lengths – normal 100mm and long 103mm.
It sounds like a small thing, but these 3mm make a decisive difference, especially for players with larger hands.
The extended handles are ideal for people with large or wide hands, while the normal handle length is suitable for players with narrower hands or for women or children.
You can find out which length is best for your hand with the help of our measurement table.
Thickness of your club grip
ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACTOR IS THE THICKNESS OF THE HANDLE. EACH SHAPE IS AVAILABLE IN THIN AND THICK, WHEREBY THE THICK VERSION IS ON AVERAGE APPROX. 2MM THICKER
Many table tennis bats are too loose and unstable in the hand because the handle is too flat and therefore has no direct contact with the palm of the hand.
To avoid this problem, we recommend combining a flat grip on the forehand with a slightly stronger grip on the backhand. The sturdier grip on the backhand fills the palm of the hand completely, ensuring a firm and secure hold. This is a well-proven combination that is suitable for many hand types.
Which handle shape, length and thickness is best for you is in most cases purely a matter of feeling and depends on many factors and, above all, preferences.
To help you choose the right shape, we have created a size chart for download provided. You can use this printable table to measure your hand and read off the appropriate factors.
The best way to find the right grip will be to compare it with your previous blades.
What bothers you? Where does it pinch? Where is the support missing? If only the handle could be a bit longer…
Or you can simply order one of our test case to your home and take your time to find out which grip combination suits your hand best.
