      I am currently using a straight handle because it gives me a good hold on the handle.

      I used to love anatomic handles. I felt I could hold the racket better. Now, the way I use the handle for serves and for backhand flips, and to get the wrist into my loop the flaired handle works better. I like Stiga's Master and Legend flairs more than most other handles I have felt because I feel like they have a really good shape. They feel more flaired than most flair handles so you can use the butt of the handle to help get more wrist without thinking about it.
      Spin is everything.

      Stiga Ebenholz classic flair is the best so far for me It has a flatter surface which makes it easier for me to feel and adjust the angle of the racket surface.
      To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

      I am using anatomic handle for many years and really feels nice. However, I'm going to test the Rosewood V and that one has a flare handle. Perhaps I like that too.

      I am currently using a straight handle but i've been thinking about changing to another type since i feel like the straight handle is locking my wrist a bit

      I used to play with anatomic but recently switched to flared handle. I feel it loosens my wrist when I make a service and when doing backhand flicks.

      ST...FL handles dig into the base of my wrist when I serve or prepare to loop.

      I used to use anatomic handle, but now i prefer straight handle, because it feels more confortable in my hand.

      Straight handle, because it makes me free to do every stroke

      Don't you ever feel like it locks up your wrist?

      No, the only "problem" is that it makes me do every topspin myself from the start. It doesnt help me anything like the flared handle does... But that aint really a problem, is it? Because you will develope better technique with it... It also makes me able to twist the bat a little for special shots like hooks around the net and sidespin backhands and such
