Hi there, many thanks for your advice a few days ago. I ended up getting the Stiga allround with 729 1.5 mm which feels really light and underpowered but has the direct feel I was looking for. Maybe I should have gone for thicker rubber but for now I will learn to use it. One question: do you know of any good TT club in Wimbledon or near? I want to get some coaching and see what a club is like as I would like to play more frequently without the risk of getting a bad reputation at work! Thanks !!
