Hello, I'm new to TD. My background is in soccer and volleyball. Been playing table tennis at work for about 2 yrs and 1 time at a club. I know I started late but picked it up after losing big time to 70 yr old player. Figured it would be a good sport to stick to for a long time.

Current setup is Xiom Vega Tour with MXP max on backhand and MSX max on forehand.

Thanks guys. I forgot to mention I live in Michigan, USA. I really want to improve just family and 4 kids, 9yrs old to 11 months makes it tough to get good practice in.

BTW SFF_liB he didn't seem slow to me lol.

BTW SFF_liB he didn't seem slow to me lol.I too have little kids. I find it hard to improve my game. I can't put in as much time as those in early 20s.

But hey nothing is impossible. I started home gym about 2 years ago. So i can squeeze time out after putting the kids to bed. I focus on footwork training - lateral jump, squat, jump rope etc. Now my footwork is better than most men in their 20s.

But I am a penholder my footwork has to be fast tho

Hi rokphish.
I live not far from Shanghai.
I notice your blade is Fangbo, is it all wood version or with ALC ? And what it feels like with your FH H3 ?

Hi!
Quite far, currently near Beijing for another couple of weeks.
I have the FB2 and it works great with H3.

Yea I'm slowly working on footwork training at home as well. I'm trying to learn the footwork patterns and it's really hard to do in match play since it's not automatic yet.
