FORM G2

G2 is an asymmetrical handle with a thumb cut. The handle runs flat to the top right, so that the thumb does not have to lie on any disturbing edge. This avoids unpleasant pressure points. Due to its rounded shape, G2 is ideal for fast turning from forehand to backhand. Since this shape has been optimized for the thumb, we advise against using it on the backhand.
