      In my limited experience, old Pros still have a pro's mentality towards equipment. That is, they will play with whatever equipment that someone gives them or pays them to use.

      Illegal only at national and > level

      It's only illegal if the referee, (the person running the tournament as opposed to the umpire), says so.
      Below national level, not many referees would not allow that bat.
    4. Fairness applied

      A couple of reasons why players knock with the new ball.
      1. If the ball breaks during play, then that ball most likely was weak and the players were used to it. The new ball in this case will play...

      I always felt that ALC blades and it's ilk play very similarly to the old Stiga/banda/ type all+ blades, but with much more leeway for control in tight situations. Plus they have that extra oomph...

      That serve looks illegal to me........toss was much too vertical.

      Where's a proper umpire when you need one, eh?

      Veterans play more or less like they have always played.
      However, all players are always updating and will shift the playing emphasis of some aspect of their game all the way into old age.

      This is an easy one for any umpire.
      Look at the position from where the chopper hit the ball. If any touch to the table was detected, the point will be awarded to the chopper.

      Having for years observed USA posters' obsession with ratings both of themselves and other players, I really hope that it does not become popular in the UK.

      Buy only high quality clip-ons

      Nothing wrong with good quality Clip-on nets. In fact, I find them better than screw type. Reason being that players tend to over tighten the screw resulting in damage to the table. We have been...

      That's an interestingly weird decision.
      It was a good serve both from my pov and, more importantly, the umpire.
      The referee must have said something off camera for the umpire to change his...

      This thread is basically saying that Dignics durability is about on par with Tenergy. That's good enough for me.
      The Tenergy pair on my bat are about 2-3 yrs old. The ones on the spare are...

      Once the ball is thrown, the rally is now in play. If you catch the ball without playing a stroke, you will have to convince the umpire that there was some extenuating circumstance why you caught the...

      If that blacked-out figure is the actual person, then it's definitely not Liam Pitchford. Also, too slim to be Drinkhall. Koki Nima lives too far away.
      He could be French. But I'll agree with Rumgay.

      Going 2-2 with Colin is an excellent achievement at any time. To me, this result says that the bat did not hold you back.
      Note; Colin Wilson is an ex-international from the 80s-90s(?). His game is...
