      Absolutely. The first time I met a real looper, I wished I had spent more time learning short serve variations.

      I feel like Stiga might be bi-polar when it comes to their QC.

      I have seen two samples of the Exclusive Offensive blade they made together with TTEX, and there was zero sloppiness that Carl...

      Yes, I'm with Yogi. I noticed something about the timing too. The movement looks stiff. There's no need to be athletic, but with the ball contact, you should be able to feel it. Snap is a good...

      "given" by whom?

      For me, high throw makes it easier to serve, push, chop, drive, block, and loop. I find no reason to flat hit except to smash. T05 is relatively high throw, and it smashes quite...

      Welcome! Jpen players are becoming a rare breed. I can't wait to hear about your jpen experiences and equipment reviews!

      I think the reason why is the exorbitant cost and the difficulty to obtain consistency from blade to blade. If you look at the old jpen 1-ply players, they tried to keep the same blade for as long...

      Your story sounds just like mine with making the late switch to shakehand. But there's really no need to give up one for the other; play both! I know someone near the top in our league , and he...

      This is so true. Hurricane feels super nice on the Speed 90. But not all Hinoki feel the same. Speed 90 is the higher quality wood that you are talking about. It is "softer" compared to Speed 70,...

      From my understanding, a drive is a topspin shot with "plow through". When you see the pros warming up before a match, they are driving the ball. A proper loop has so much topspin that if you...

      It's true that you want to see the person play. Every individual has a different physical make up: skinny, big, long arms, short legs, small hands, big feet, etc. That individual build affects how...

      My foundation was mainly built using H3/H3Neo.

      Here is a short summary from my experience on a Walnut/Spruce blade:
      MXP is faster than G1, non linear, mid-throw, a bit more spin. Feels crisp on...

      If your opponent flat hits when close to the table, they will not be able to flat hit a loop. In that position, their only option is to block.
      If they can flat hit your shot, then you're not...

      Fakes are just plain bad no matter how you look at it. You encourage counterfeiters, you fool yourself, and you might even end up unlawfully fooling someone else selling it second hand.
