    John Hilton used anti on one side, inverted on the other. He twiddled heavily, and often stamped his feet when hitting the ball, masking the sound of the hit. I've seen him play in the early 80s,...

    We've used XSF, and also experienced their relative fragility. Looking for alternatives, we first tried a few batches (a dozen boxes or so) of the DHS D40+ ball (the one with Ding Ning on the box). ...

    Here's where ye olde fartes like me would mention Dragutin Šurbek and Jean-Philippe Gatien. In modern players, I rather like Kristian Karlssons's strokes.

    You assess an incoming ball, pick your choice in how you’re going to act, move into position, execute your chosen stroke — and reset, i.e. return to neutral position.

    It’s an excellent blade for those that can handle it, which is the empty set.

    I’ve known somebody that played it. With MX-P, to add insult to injury. He developed a very cautious game of...

    I like the Clipper and I cannot lie, but I have no first-hand experience with OP"s selection. I also like the Samsonov Force Pro.

    And to be a little less uninformative, YES you can, or may be able to, see the ball spinning, but the fact that it spins does not help much. What you need to know is how much it spins, and in what...

    Reading spin is one of the harder parts. People can, though, but I don't think it's done by tracking the motions of the ball print. I think it's done by reading the speed and flight curve of the...

    Maybe that's just me, but once upon a time I found Brett Clarke's "forehand topspin like a boss" snippets very instructive — focused on the full body mechanics involved. A bear is used, as are golf...

    The Sweden Extra is a very fine blade indeed. Over here, it’s not insanely expensive - a decent combo (eg with Vega Intro, Vega Euro, Vega Pro) can be constructed well under €100.

    Couldn't that be Xu Xin applying multiple glue layers? That shine could then be the gloss of a previous, still somewhat fresh, layer.

    Like many, I'm all for a thin coat - for amateurs, blades...

    I had a few sessions with D05 and D80, and have played T05 extensively.

    I felt I could do with D80, but not with D05. All other things being equal, such as the price, I think I would pick D80...

    It's a decent rubber for starters that want to develop their game; an early rubber created to compensate for the loss of liveliness when rubber cement glue was banned. There are many rubbers in that...

    Watching the live stream I see recent results, with a 3-2 win over Wang Chuqin by Kristian Karlsson.

    Formidable upset, if true. What happened?
