Here is my grip. I can hold my blade easy and comfortable

But my friend told that my grip is wrong, he recommend that grip. It is difficult to hold blade and I feel that my blade is going to fly when I loop or smash

How do you think? What right? What wrong?

The second pic does look more like normal Wang Hao style. Watch his instructional video for tips. It is thumb and side of two fingers at the back pressing the racket while the index finger is relax for forehand. Should have no problem holding the racket in action.

Racket grip especially in penhold has no distinct grip. I say hold it however you are comfortable.

Yeah, there is no "right grip". But I think you can try making a gap between the rubber and handle on the FH side - this will allow your grip to be on the blade and not "thicker" because of the rubber. This can help you have more control.
Most importantly is that your wrist must be able to be flexible

I think make it a big bigger.
So your first finger will not be lying on the rubber.
This way, you have a better feel of the blade and doesn't have a 4mm rubber inbetween - otherwise you are required to grab it tighter etc

For your backhand, are you traditional or reverse? How do you hold it from the back?
